Sunday for the Soul #3

Hello my blooming buds!

We're still in the Parish Hall for Sunday morning worship! Next week we'll be going back to the Sanctuary and be able to see the new organ screens! 

Today's sermon was about breaking the Sabbath. Jesus was at a synagogue on a Sabbath day and saw a woman that had been living with her back bent forward for 18 years. He healed her and a priest exclaimed at the woman that she shouldn't have come to the synagogue on a Sabbath day to be healed since it was a day of rest. Jesus said to the priest, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water?" This is a lesson in compassion for others so that we can help those less fortunate or with discomfort be able to rest on the Sabbath day like those more fortunate like ourselves. 

Do you, of the Christian faith, keep the Sabbath day holy by making Sunday your day off?

Buh-bye xo
