Scriptures include: Psalm 119:1-8 and Deuteronomy 30:15-20
Visiting Preacher Rev. Brian Harrington from Starling Avenue Baptist Church will preach a sermon entitled “Serving Other Gods?”
The writer of Deuteronomy tells us that God has set before us the possibility of life and prosperity or death and adversity, and to choose life we simply need to walk in the way of God. Simply? Of course, any of us who have more than a few years of life experience know that following in the way of God is no simple matter. We all have so many competing interests (gods?) in our lives that steal our attention away from what is most important, following God into the ways of justice and peace. Perhaps, if we continue to reorient ourselves to what matters most, then we can live into who God created and called us to be and experience for ourselves and our world the fullness of life that Jesus promised to us.
