A Weekly Newsletter from Pine Street Church
A Word from Andrew... Last Zoom Hybrid Edition Worship, That Time Jesus Lost a Debate, and Share the PSC Love on Your Social Media Channels...
Dear Pine Street Church Members and Friends,

Today is our final Sunday Worship: Hybrid Edition service at 10am. We will begin a new Livestream worship experience next Sunday, September 12, and then Sunday September 19, as we prepare for return to in-person worship on September 26.

Today we will explore a fascinating story about the time when Jesus loses a debate to a foreign woman in St. Mark (7:24-37). Even Jesus had the capacity to grow and learn and evolve. And perhaps there has never been a time more than now when we have a fresh chance to follow his lead and let ourselves do the same.

Finally, please take a minute this week to share our YouTube channel with a friend or family member. And be sure to follow Pine Street Church on Instagram and Facebook and share the Pine-head love on your social networks! It's one of the easiest ways to practice "good gossip" about your church and expand this community of compassion and grace that we love.

With heart,
Andrew

The Spirit of Wealth: Give To Caesar What is Caesar's..., Pt 4


In this concluding presentation of our series, The Spirit of Wealth, we will look at more historical examples who express the fullest definition of wealth. These individuals may or may not have had much money, but by possessing one or more of the other resources of wealth, namely freedom, knowledge, skills, experience, and relationships, they more than made up for any lack in money. In particular, we will begin and focus much or our time, on the accomplishments and impact of one of most amazing early Americans. We will move on to individuals we don't normally associate with wealth, but who were indeed wealthy in their own way, possessing enough of it to establish legacies few have rivaled. We will conclude by examining our own level of wealth, so that we may determine what we already possess, and what we still may need to acquire, in order to fulfill our own noble purposes or goals. Many of us may discover we already possess all we need to make a significant impact with our life.
---------
Most of us live with conflicting views about money. We all would like more of it in our life, yet we simultaneously experience it as dangerous and possibly evil. This conflict at the personal level reflects itself in the organizations we are a part of, including our places of employment, spiritual organizations, and other non-profits. How can we resolve this duality which threatens our ability to live a satisfying life, as well as acquire the necessary resources to fulfill our mission at the personal and communal levels?

In this four-part series, we will examine history's great teachings on this subject, both literary and visual, and look at real-life examples of those who successfully navigated this dual obligation of giving to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God, what is God's.
