This Week in Worship – August 10, 2014

August 7, 2014 | from PastorBob Comments Disabled

“There is only one God.”  That was what my father-in-law said to my soon-to-be wife on the night before our wedding.  He was very active in his home church; Roman Catholic all of his life.  His daughter was now about to marry a young man who was also very active in his home church; PC(USA).  His statement was both comforting during the pre-ceremony stress, and correct.  Sure, our various denominations may have differences in doctrine and worship styles but those of us who worship our God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit know in our hearts that there really is only one God.  Sometimes we are guilty of pointing fingers at other denominations saying they are getting it wrong.  This finger-pointing is not new.  Paul addressed these same issues within the budding church in Rome.  The Jewish coverts were hung up on the law.  The newbie Gentile coverts were conflicted in matters of faith.  Paul reminded them, as us, that sometimes we get it wrong and the faith in Christ is what really matters.  This Sunday we will look a little deeper in Paul’s letter to the church in Rome with prayerful expectation that we might come away trying to get it right.  All are welcome.  Worship begins at 10:00am.
