Morning Worship, 8/18/13: "Fear the Lord?"

     Certain passages of Scripture are seared into our brains.  We know them by heart.  "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want."  We recite them when we’re in a situation in which we need a holy reminder.  “I can do all things…through him who strengthens me.”
     Today’s Old Testament passage is one of those familiar lines which we all know in our hearts.  “The fear of the Lord…is the beginning of knowledge.”  But do we understand it in our heads?  What does it mean to “fear” the Lord?

May the Lord be with you!

Morning Worship, 8/11/13: "A Call to Alms"

     A new report says 1 out of 3 mothers cannot afford enough clean diapers for her children. When approached for comment, Jesus responded, "Sell your possessions and give alms."
     Top assistant Peter then asked him, "Are you serious?"  

May the Lord be with you!
