Jonah 3:10—4:11; Psalm 145:1-8; Philippians 1:21-30; Matthew 20:1-16 (Green)
This engaging book guides readers through one of the most colorful books of the Bible, illuminating passages from Acts that show the Christian gospel expressing itself through the lives, speech, struggles, and adventures of Jesus’s followers. The book emphasizes the disruptive character of the Christian gospel and shows how Acts repeatedly describes God as upsetting the status quo by changing people’s lives, society’s conventions, and our basic expectations of what’s possible. Suited for individual and group study, this book by a New Testament scholar with a gift for popular communication asks serious questions and eschews pat answers, bringing Acts alive for contemporary reflection on the character of God, the challenges of faith, and the church.

Florida Bahamas Synod and Archdiocese of Miami event
So many folks in our congregation and community have pets that are beloved members of our families. The Feast of St. Francis—who was a great lover of all of God’s creatures, especially animals, has been a traditional time to bless pets. We are considering the closest Sunday afternoon (Oct 8) for a special community wide blessing of animals at Silver Lake Pavilion. We need lots of help with arrangements, advertising, and program. Speak to Pastor Andreas if you would like to help with this.
