Traditional Worship E-Bulletin January 19, 2020

Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat – I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how… Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self.

Luke 9:23-24

"The notion of covenant emphasizes the relational and communal aspect to life, expressed in human relationships and in humanity’s relationship with the rest of creation. We do not live to ourselves but in mutual commitment … our human action in covenant is an imitation of God’s action in covenant…" - John Goldingay
