Have you ever tried to solve a murder mystery using the clues that you are provided?  The four gospels help us piece together a deeper understanding of Jesus.  In today’s reading from Luke, Jesus is preparing the disciples for their new job.  When pauses happen in our lives, it serves as an alert that Jesus is preparing us for some new challenge.  Jesus offers us acceptance and loves us for the people we are.

Thank you to the worship team for leading us in music today and thank you, Jay, Jim, and Sonya also for your leadership.
