The Officers and Leadership Circle of the Congregational Church of West Medford | Sanctuary UCC issue this call to the 2020 Annual Congregational Visioning Meeting (and Process) as defined by our by-laws....

The Parable of the Unmerciful Servant
A king forgives his servant a huge, huge debt. The forgiven servant then goes and has someone thrown in prison for a minor debt that they're owed.

While the moral of the story is "don't be a hypocrite like that guy," this parable has much to teach us about how forgiveness acts as a barometer of our spiritual health.

Join us this Sunday for worship we dig into this oft-forgotten parable.

Prayer for This Sunday:
Lord God, friend of those in need, your Son Jesus has untied our burdens and healed our spirits. We lift up the prayers of our hearts for those still burdened, those seeking healing, those in need within the church and the world.
