This Sunday, March 4, the third Sunday of Lent, Pastor Steve Vineyard continues his sermon series titled “Listen, Hearing that Still Small Voice and Finding Your Own.”
This week’s sermon is titled “Finding a Word, Listening to the Texts.”
Wisdom shouts in the street; in the public square, she raises her voice. Above the noisy
crowd, she calls out. At the entrances of the city gates, she has her say: “How long will you
clueless people love your naïveté, mockers hold their mocking dear, and fools hate
knowledge? You should respond when I correct you. Look, I’ll pour out my spirit on you. I’ll
reveal my words to you.” – Proverbs 1: 20-23
“The Wisdom tradition within Christianity invites us to love knowledge, especially the
self-knowledge that comes from examining ourselves in relationship to the liberating Word of God.
What happens when you mix the reading of scripture with prayer and meditation, rather than an analytical approach to the words of scripture? What will we hear when we let go of what it all is “supposed to” mean and simply let it reside within us?”
Please join us this Sunday at 9 AM or 11 AM for a very moving experience and learn more about “Listen, Hearing that Still Small Voice and Finding Your Own.”
This Lent we will quiet things down and heighten our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on holy texts is an ancient Lenten practice. Come and rest, come and listen.
