Mixed Emotions PDF Print E-mail
SPOILER ALERT: If you are the kind of person where you want everyone to get along, no one have hurt feelings or unpleasant emotions, this might be a hard sermon for you to sit through. In our gospel passage, Mark 10:17-31, no one is happy. Jesus seems a little out of sorts as he takes exception with the way he is asked a question. When he finally gets around to answering it, the man is disappointed by the answer and takes leave of Jesus dismayed and saddened. The disciples are shocked by what Jesus says. Like I said, no one is happy.  
So what was it Jesus said? To tell you a secret, I am convinced it was as much of what Jesus DIDN'T say that was disappointing to the man and shocking to the disciples as what he DID say. The man asked Jesus what he needed to do to obtain eternal life. "Easy enough," Jesus replied, "You know the commandments: Don't commit murder. Don't commit adultery. Don't steal. Don't give false testimony. Don't cheat. Honor your mother and father." Well, actually at this point, the man was happy with that answer. You see, he had been doing that all his life. So what was the answer he and the disciples expected? And what was the answer they got? And how are WE supposed to feel about it? Well, come to worship this weekend and we'll talk about that! (And invite your friends. This will be a good time to bring them!) We worship in a casual format on Saturday evening at 5:30pm. On Sunday at 8:30am we have our traditional service and at 11:00am is worship with a contemporary flair. Holy Communion is celebrated at all three services.
Blessings to all,
Pastor Karla

1..... What's The Difference? Denominations in America
Did you know there are 30 different churches in Poway alone? Why pick one over another? What differentiates the Roman Catholics from the Anglicans from the Lutherans from the Methodists from the Baptists? And what about all those non-denominational churches? What are they all about? We'll take six weeks and learn how all these denominations came about and how we might relate to them. 
2..... The Everyday Guide to Wines of California
Using the Great Courses video series, taught by Master of Wine Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, we will taste wines from throughout California, including Chardonnay, Cabernet, Zinfandel, and Syrah.  In the final class we will have a chance to play winemaker and blend our own creation!
There is no fee for the class, but all will be expected to pitch in providing wine for the class. Class leaders, Darrell and Nancy Datte, will provide the wine for the first class.  As a group we will decide how to proceed from there.
Classes will begin Sept 30 and go for six weeks (9/30, 10/7, 10/14, 10/21, 10/28, 11/4). "What's The Difference? Denominations in America" will be held in the Sanctuary and "The Everyday Guide to Wines of California" will be held in the Parish Hall.  CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP NOW!
