A Study in Contrast

 It was a long weekend and the weather was perfect. Cold and clear. There'd be street hockey for sure.  The only question that remained was who would I be?  What
 team would I be on?  This is where it got tricky.  Not everyone would get to be on the team they wanted, much less their favorite player, so it was good to have a couple of choices. And now, especially now, the stakes were high. 
     It was the fall of 1972 and the world would finally see who was the best. For some time Russia had dominated pretty much all international sports, but now the challenge was out there.  They were going to send their best, and Canada would send its best. Four games would be played in Russia and four games would be played in Canada. There was so much tension, it was palpable. 
     And so it was that I ended up being Vladislav Tretiak, the hated Russian superstar goaltender.  As this series played out, with national pride on the line, we mimicked the teams, each of us emulating the namesake we had chosen. My friend who was taken for team Canada and had chosen to be Ken Dryden, ridiculed me for being the awkward Russian, and taunting insisting that he would show me who was best.  An interesting series indeed...
     Join us this weekend where we'll discuss the study in contrast that Jesus puts before us in the parable of the Pharisee and tax collector. It is a conversation about being righteous and being justified, and how we continue to mess that up despite our proclamations to the contrary. I hope you'll join us. We gather on Saturday at 5:30 pm or on Sunday at 8:00 and 11:00 am. See you there!
