grace2flogo-300x150Well, we have returned from our New England vacation! The weather was spectacular. Sunny every day but one; temps in the 80’s; low humidity. The only problem was that it was a bit windy– although, I like to sail so it wasn’t a total loss!

We also had had some big happenings that we celebrated: my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday; my brother-in-law announced his engagement; and I got to baptize my nephew.

As great as it was to get away, it is also wonderful to return home. To return to the comfort of your own home and familiar surroundings and friends.

I want to thank Troy Smith and Katie Adams for speaking the last two weeks– it’s nice to know that the Word of God goes out every Sunday… whether I’m present or not!

This week we are going to return to the Book of Mark. If you remember, we finished chapter 2 with the Pharisees questioning Jesus about the Sabbath. Sunday we will see another story that has to do with the Sabbath. It’s found in Mark 3:1-6. In this passage, Jesus heals a man with a withered hand. Read the story and come this Sunday to discover how this miracle can impact you and your life. I believe it tells us something about Jesus that I can often forget or just downright misunderstand.

Looking forward to Sunday!


Grace and peace,
