Sunday May 21: Ephesians 4:1-6, “Unity is Hard Work (and it’s our job to do it?)”
By Pastor Bill Flavin

This week we continue our Ephesians series. Ephesians 4 comes back to the topic of Christian unity, and both a call and reminder that part of our call from Jesus is that others will know we follow him by the way we love one another.  One way that love is expressed is working hard at staying united in Christ, and working through things that try to divide us.

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.
