World Hunger 2016-2017 | World Renew

This Sunday is World Hunger Sunday. It begins a season of learning through the God-changed stories of people living with shortages of food and education world-wide, which ends the week before Thanksgiving. This year, not only our kids will collect change for their Peter Fish through a family devotional, but we invite the entire congregation to take home a Peter Fish and read through an adult devotional with us.

The money collected will go to support World Renew, the internationally reputable relief and development organization of our denomination. You are invited to join us in learning about the amazing work God is doing through World Renew and in hearing these stories of God-changed lives. The Peter Fish will return to church (with bellies full!) the Sunday before Thanksgiving. In many parts of the world, people’s stories begin in a place of hardship. Illiteracy, and inadequate health care. Hunger, and poverty are a regular part of life.

Sanctuary is proud to be sponsoring this important event in our Greenwood neighborhood on Sat, Nov 19. We have 2 discounted tickets available to the first folks to contact

[10/16/16]   As far as we can tell (which if we're honest - is never very far), we're all good for worship at Taproot tomorrow. Remember: guest preachers from the Dominican Republic & Haiti, and then all church lunch at Razzis afterward. Bring a friend!

Posts about parable of the sower on Malcolm Guite

To wrap up the sermon on the sower & the soils yesterday, I (Mark) quoted/prayed this poem/prayer from Malcolm Guite. This is my prayer for the week:

Good Ground

I love your simple story of the sower,
With all its close attention to the soil,
Its movement from the knowledge to the knower,
Its take on the tenacity of toil.

I feel the fall of seed a sower scatters,
So equally available to all,
Your story takes me straight to all that matters,
Yet understands the reasons why I fall.

Oh deepen me where I am thin and shallow,
Uproot in me the thistle and the thorn,
Keep far from me that swiftly snatching shadow,
That seizes on your seed to mock and scorn.

O break me open, Jesus, set me free,
Then find and keep your own good ground in me.
If you click the link you can hear him recite the poem in his gorgeous bearded british accent. Posts about parable of the sower written by malcolmguite
