Ten Words

Jesus' life was inextricably linked to fulfilling the Ten Commandments. Our lives are linked to them as well. Jesus summed them up for us. Love God and love your neighbors. And when we fail in this, we confess our sins,  receive absolution and forgiveness, and pray for the Holy Spirit to enable us to keep on trying.

Stop and Rest

In this Sunday's sermon, we consider Israel as she stands trapped between Pharoah's chariot army and the waters of the Red Sea. Up until this point in time, their identities have been completely defined by someone else, by the demands and schedules and whips of their taskmasters. They do not know what it looks like to be free!

Today we were challenged to keep the Sabbath holy.
