Here's Sunday's Bulletin. Note: We resume our post-Worship book discussion of Marilynne Robinson's The Givenness of Things with the chapters "Memory" and "Values".
"Blessed are ..." Thus begins the three-chapter series of Jesus' teachings the church institutional avoids like the plague. It’s a series of teachings better known as the Sermon on the Mount.
"Blessed are ..." may sound as passive as the subjects who Jesus states are blessed: the meek, the mournful, etc. Not so, his intended meaning.
"Bold Blessings" (Matthew 5:1-16) is Sunday's Message. Also, BPC member Jean Dudek will share on her recent bracing trip to Israel.
