Sunday Worship Message, “Sticks and Stones”
Journey of Stones Week #3: 3rd Sunday in Lent
It would be a relief if we could say we didn’t throw rocks anymore, especially at our fellow human beings. But let’s face it: every time we stand in judgement, a proverbial rock hits its mark. Contrast Jesus’ word to the woman. Brothers and sisters, sticks and stones still hurt.
Bringing us a reminder of Ash Wednesday, Bob will bring the message about hearts of stone. When challenged about their legalism – the rule-following – rather than the intention behind it – to be Christ-centered, just and compassionate – the pharisees’ hearts were hardened, and they responded with ridicule and criticism and rejection. What’s more important? The law or the spirit of the law?
