SixEight Summer of Rest

Are you tired? We are too. Due to the pandemic, people are more anxious, stressed and worn out than ever. Mental health is at a crisis level for so many people, and the last thing we need is to add more to our plates. So, as a church, we are taking the summer to rest, spend some time with one another and Jesus. If you're tired and just need a place to breathe, we're here to help you! No Sunday sermons, just worship, community, prayer and sharing.

Rest

By design, we need regular rest. We can't run full-speed without taking time to slow down. Just like our muscles need rest in order to come back stronger after a tough workout, we need rest if we want to come back stronger. Our Sunday morning gathering is a time to just that.

Unity

We believe it's possible to be unified even in the presence of diversity. There are plenty of voices trying to divide us. We want to be radically committed to the middle. Whether it's in our neighborhood, amongst other churches or in the community, we want to be a source of unity, not division. We will do this by gathering with other churches on June 27th for a time of celebration and fun!

Perspective

With such an overwhelming year where we have dealt with overwhemling narratives all around us, as a defense mechanism, many of us have gotten very narrowly focused on something or someone. With so many agendas being crammed in our face, it's hard to see through them to what lies ahead. We need some perspective. We're doing this with a daily reading from Luke.

Summer of Rest, Summer with Jesus: W4D2

Today's Bible reading comes from Luke 13:31-35 31 At that time some Pharisees came to Jesus and said to him, “Leave this place and go somewhere else. Herod wants to kill you.” 32 He replied, “Go tell that fox, ‘I will keep on driving out demons and healing people today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will reach my goal.’ 33 In any case, I must press on today and tomorrow and the next day—for surely no prophet can die outside Jerusalem! 34 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing. 35 Look, your house is left to you desolate. I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.’[a]”

Today's Bible reading comes from Luke 13:18-20: 18 Then Jesus asked, “What is the kingdom of God like? What shall I compare it to? 19 It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his garden. It grew and became a tree, and the birds perched in its branches.” 20 Again he asked, “What shall I compare the kingdom of God to? 21 It is like yeast that a woman took and mixed into about sixty pounds[a] of flour until it worked all through the dough.” 22 Then Jesus went through the towns and villages, teaching as he made his way to Jerusalem. 23 Someone asked him, “Lord, are only a few people going to be saved?” He said to them, 24 “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able to. 25 Once the owner of the house gets up and closes the door, you will stand outside knocking and pleading,…

Summer of Rest, Summer with Jesus: W3D5

Today's Bible reading is from Luke 13:10-17 10 On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11 and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12 When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, “Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.” 13 Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God. 14 Indignant because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, the synagogue leader said to the people, “There are six days for work. So come and be healed on those days, not on the Sabbath.” 15 The Lord answered him, “You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? 16 Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on…

Today's reading is from Luke 13:1-9 Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2 Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. 4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” 6 Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree growing in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it but did not find any. 7 So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, ‘For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found…
