Readings: Acts 2:42-47 and Matthew 22:15-22
God’s kingdom or realm isn’t an abstraction, it’s a reality. However, that reality is dependent upon us to do our part–in other words, we play a vital role. Our sacred texts provide us with powerful examples of the here-and-now realm, if we hear now! We are invited to a new way of living, one rooted in giving. Do we accept?
In Sunday’s Parade of Pledges sermon entitled “Heaven is a Place on Earth?” we will explore passages from Matthew and Acts that challenge us to examine two questions: whose claim is ultimate in and on our lives? And how does that claim manifest in God’s realm, here and now? Please join us!
