Not About Us

Dear Scientists,

Theologian Karl Barth often spoke of theology as “scientific endeavor” in which everything is keyed and focused upon the object of scrutiny. Scientific thinking, said Barth, is that manner of thought  that is exclusively focused upon the object of the scrutiny. Everything is determined by the object. Our interpretation of scripture, our preaching and worship is “scientific” in that it is focused upon and receives its form and modulation from its object. It’s not about us; it’s about the One who is the Bread of Life. It is a great gift to have one’s life swept up in a meaning and mission greater than yourself. It is a great gift to give modern, western people the means to have something more significant to think about, something more important to live for, than ourselves.

Prayerfully consider your meaning and purpose. Is there peace in your heart?

Read John 4:5-25. Reflect into- Jesus' love for the Samaritan women at the well and Jesus' passion to touch the untouchable and forgive the unforgivable. How might that speak into your life?

The song “Build a Better Boat” was written in response to recent hurricane victims.  Kenny Chesney has a popular version you can hear on the radio. This version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFFo5b-7bMc  is by Travis Meadows, who co-wrote the song with Mac McAnally a member of Jimmy Buffett’s band .

Prayers:  For Tanner Tichota who will be baptized in his parents' backyard tonight at 530pm. All are welcome to attend. 

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen

Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to know
so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.

I believe that you simply can do with a few % to force the message home a bit, however instead of that, that
is excellent blog. An excellent read. I'll definitely be back.
