April 29, 2012 - Fourth Sunday of Easter
This week we begin a 4-week sermon series about "Holy Conversations". Holy conversations are those opportunities we have for telling our stories, sharing our faith journeys, swapping "God talk".
Our scripture reading for the day will be Acts 3:1-11 (click here to read the passage). In this story, Peter and John are passing through the gate of the temple when a beggar asks them for alms. Peter responds by saying, "I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you." What Peter gives the beggar is Jesus, and it changes the man's life forever.
Do we recognize opportunities to say to others, "What I have I give to you"? What would we say if we did recognize those opportunities? Do people really want to hear about it? And what exactly is it that we have found in Jesus that we could share with others? Join us as we begin to explore those questions and think about what having "holy conversations" might be like.
See you on Sunday!
