WORD for Traditional Worship | 10am Sanctuary
Preaching: Rev. Judy Zabel
Reflection: Speaking Christian: Mercy
This week we are going to talk about mercy. Reflect on a time when you were challenged to show mercy to someone who you think didn't deserve it. Think about a time in your life when you were moved to offer compassion for someone. How are mercy and compassion alike? How are mercy and compassion different?
Don't forget to invite a friend to worship with you this week. Live to invite! We are a church that believes in radical hospitality.
See you in worship this week.
For the Children: Which is easier for you: to ask for help or to help when someone asks you to help? Both can be tricky. If you ask for help, it means admitting you can't do it all by yourself. If someone asks you to help, you have to stop what you're doing and be ready for that person, instead. But both can be a blessing. When we admit we can't do it all by ourselves, we have the chance to include someone else and make a team. When we stop what serves us so we can help someone else, we get to be on their team to do something great. When has it been easy to ask for help? When has it been hard? When has it been easy to help someone else? When has it been hard? Jesus loves when we get together to make a good team!
