Commandments OR Invitations
(Guidelines for Better Living)


                              This Week

        Imagine: Rested & Reconnected

                        Exodus 20:8-11

                         Luke 13:10-17


A couple months ago, when I was working through worship themes, I settled on the “Imagine the People of God” theme. For some reason, as my mind took those words to a next level I thought perhaps I’d explore what the people of God could be if we looked at the Ten commandments as an invitation to a better life rather than a punitive set of requirements.


Let’s dive in. Let’s talk about not only the Ten Commandments, but about the context of Biblical Law and how it compares to the ethical codes of other religions and cultures. Come ready to question and discuss. Come with your inspirations for other worshipers.

See you in church!   Pastor Jill

Exodus 20:8-11 (The Inclusive Bible)

“Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy!  For six days you will labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath for YHWH.  Do no work on that day, neither you nor your daughter nor your son, nor your workers – women or men – nor your animals, nor the foreigner who lives among you.  For in the six days YHWH made the heavens and the earth and the sea and all that they hold, but rested on the seventh day; this is why YHWH has blessed the Sabbath day and made it sacred.”
