Sunday, December 24: The Light Breaks in: Christmas (Matthew 2:1-12)
h By Pastor Bill Flavin

This week we will start a new series called “The Light Breaks In” that will guide us through advent. In John 1 Jesus is described as the light that breaks into the darkness, that pushes back the darkness. Each week in this series we are going to look at places in our lives and scripture where Jesus breaks in, and pushes back darkness in unexpected ways, times and places. This week reflect the climax of this story, as Jesus arrives to Mary, Joseph, and a cast of others to signal that the light is here, and darkness has been put on notice.

Sunday June 9: 2 Thessalonians 3:1-15, “If You Don’t Want to Work, You Don’t Eat.”

This week we take a break from Nehemiah and look into Thessalonians. Both of Paul’s letters to the Thessalonian church address either an individual or individuals who are perfectly capable of working but have adopted a rebellious attitude and are refusing to work. This refusal to work places significant weight on the community of faith, and needs to be addressed with pastoral sensitivity (culminating with Paul’s instruction regarding discipline). I will demonstrate how the refusal to work continues to be a relevant issue today, and conclude with how at creation, God invited us to partner with Him in the gift of work, and even though sin has distorted this gift, in Christ Jesus, God has already begun to redeem the gift of work.
