6th Sunday After Epiphany: Worship at 8:00 am 10:30 am

***
fax-1889046 1920

The Gospel for this Sunday:

Matthew 5:21-37

Be Reconciled

In this week's reading from Deuteronomy we are called to choose life by loving and obeying God. Much of today’s gospel reading echoes portions of the Ten Commandments. Jesus’ instructions to the crowd reveal a pattern of behavior that honors both God and the neighbor, resulting in life and health for the whole community. We too are invited to embrace these commandments, not out of fear of retribution, but because God has promised that to do so means life for us.

Please place ONLY STYROFOAM in the containers noted for Styrofoam recycling (in the upstairs cloakroom). No other recyclable materials (such as other plastics, paper, or glass) should be deposited in this container. Other recyclable materials go in the blue recycling containers, or any container marked just “Recycling.”
Thank you to those of you who are recycling Styrofoam by putting it in the Styrofoam recycling containers. Please make sure any Styrofoam containers you put in are completely clean and free of any food residue. Styrofoam that is contaminated with food residue or anything else won’t be recycled. Almost all of the Styrofoam that has been put in so far has been nice and clean. Good job, folks, and keep it up! Care of the Earth Committee of the Peace and Justice Mission
