Aug 4th
 
Luke 12:13-21 is about a younger brother, who wants more inheritance and Jesus' story about the foolish farmer who hoards his crops, thinking that possessions are all he needs.  A life centered on greed is not worth living.  We will be sharing in Holy Communion, and the title of the sermon is, "Getting What We Deserve."   
 
Aug 11th
 
This Sunday Jesus tells parables about the servants at a wedding not being ready for the bridal party, and the house owner who is not prepared for the thief in the night.  On one level, we are told to be ready for the day each of us will meet our Lord, and on another, we are told to wait, actively living as Christ calls us.  Our reading for this Sunday is Luke 12:32-40 and the title of the sermon is, "Waiting Ready."
 
Aug 18th
 
"The Song of the Vineyard" from Isaiah 5:1-7.  God presents the prophet Isaiah with a vision of a vineyard, perfectly cared over, that yields only sour grapes.  We are warned that we must provide good works in response to our own blessings.   
 
Aug 25th
 
Jeremiah 1:4-10 is God's call of the young prophet.  We learn later in the book that he was a young man who spent too much time at parties.  God chooses him to bring warnings of destruction.  The gospel passage is Luke 13:10-17 and is about an older lady he heals.  God uses the young and the old to give divine messages.
