Jesus told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.”
- How do you see your life right now? Do you feel you deserve it?
- Who would you say are ‘your kind of people?’ Who do you feel most uncomfortable around?
- Exactly what do we mean when we talk about grace? Do we think some people deserve grace and some don’t?
- How do you think God sees you?
Church can be fun. Well, maybe you wouldn’t quite agree that it’s fun, but it can be joyful. At Trinity Commons we try and allow our time together with God to be joyful, whether it’s the hymn Kenny plays, me trying to make an announcement, a word or phrase in the lesson we hear, or the way we pass the peace. Joy should be a part of what we do when we gather.
This Sunday promises to be joyful and fun because it’s our annual Boocharist. Come join us at 6 pm in your Halloween costume and let’s have fun. You can also come earlier because the Trunk-or-Treat by our friends from St. Mary’s on the Highlands will be in our parking lot giving out candy and other treats to the kids in the neighborhood. And yes, there’s a delicious free supper after the service. Come come and join in the fun, whether you have a costume or not, you’re welcome here to join in the joy we share no matter what.
