 "Follow the Mercy"

October 1, 2023

Two Ripples

Exodus 17: 1
The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, traveling from place to place as the Lord commanded. They camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink.
Exodus 17: 7
. . . “Is the Lord among us or not?”


From a rock God provided water

that brought life and joy

to these grumbling Israelites.


Later, Jesus came as a baby

and grew up as a human

so that he might better understand

the pain and worries of this world.


By living and dying as a human,

Jesus set an example for his followers to replicate

and gave mercy

that brings them life and joy.


Share this living water with others.

Philippians 2: 1-4 (Paul writes to the church at Philippi)
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being likeminded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind . . . in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.




Affirmation of Faith 


There is one God and there is one mediator, Christ Jesus, who came as a ransom for all, to whom we testify. This saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance: That Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, and was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed in throughout the world, taken up in glory. Great indeed is the mystery of the gospel. Amen.
