The Third Sunday in Lent: March 15

This Sunday, we consider John's account (John 2.13-22) of Jesus cleansing the Temple. This story explodes our concept of meek and mild Jesus as he forcibly expels animals, merchants, and money changers from the Temple.
What do we take away from this story? There are several interpretations and many implications. [We will discuss some of these Sunday.] But the focus we will take on Sunday is: What is a Christian response to injustice? Jesus ACTED against injustice, he didn't just complain or moan about it. He DID something about it. What injustices exist in our city, in our state, in our country, in our world, in our church? What is God calling YOU to DO about it?

The worship bulletin is here.
