Scripture Readings for the Week of Oct 17-23

Psalm 84Jeremiah 14:1-22 Luke 18:9-14 2 Timothy 4:6-18

For several weeks now we have explored what it means to be the church. This coming Saturday we will continue our attempt to think deeply about the church by examining Ephesians 4. This time spent in Ephesians has been good for me and I hope that all of us are spurred on to think clearly about how God is busy forming his church, warts and all.

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
who have set their hearts on pilgrimage
. – Psalm 84:5

St. Eugene on Maturity

… we do not become mature by taking a course in maturity or reading a book on maturity. Maturity is everything we are becoming attentive and responsive to, everything that Christ is. – Eugene Peterson, Practice Resurrection, pg. 114
