So what do you do when you need to draw something quick...Stick Figures!
This Sunday we will be celebrating the Saints in the life of First Christian Church. We will recognize the saints who walk among us, hear again our biblical call to live as saints, and recognize God's good and faithful servants who have gone from this life to the next over the past 12 months.
I hope you'll join us this Sunday for this special service of prayer and calling, of thanksgiving and celebration!
I'll see you Sunday!
Mark 12:28-34 -- The First Commandment
One of the scribes came near and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, he asked him, ‘Which commandment is the first of all?’
Jesus answered, ‘The first is, “Hear, O Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.” The second is this, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.” There is no other commandment greater than these.’
Then the scribe said to him, ‘You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that “he is one, and besides him there is no other”; and “to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength”, and “to love one’s neighbour as oneself”,—this is much more important than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.’
When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, ‘You are not far from the kingdom of God.’ After that no one dared to ask him any question.
