Shepherd 8-14-22

Psalms 3-14 focused on the arrogance of the wicked and how that caused suffering for God’s people.  This week’s Psalm (15) begins a short series that considers the joy of God’s people.  Join us Sunday morning at 9:00 in the Ballard Middle School Board Room as we consider a completely different type of Psalm by David.

No one has volunteered to bring treats this week, so beat the rush and “Reply All” NOW!!  Believe it or not, this is your last chance to bring treats this month.  We will also celebrate Holy Communion again this week because we won’t have our own worship service for the next two weeks.

The readings for this week are:

Isaiah 33:13-24

Psalm 15

1 Corinthians 1:18-31

Luke 6:37-45
