07 30 2023 Bulletin: Pentecost IX

It is an age-old question: why is there evil in the world? In the parable of the wheat and the weeds Jesus suggests that both grow together until the harvest. With Paul, we long for the day that all creation will be set free from bondage and suffering. Having both weeds and wheat within us, we humbly place our hope in the promises of God, and from the Lord’s table we go forth to bear the fruit of justice and mercy. We also baptize Stellan Thomas Pearson, son of Kristofer & Chelsea Pearson!
