Sermon drawn from Leviticus: Love your neighbor as yourself
LA GRANDE — “Who’s Your Neighbor?” is the message pastor Archie Hook will share at the La Grande First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Sunday, June 6, at 10 a.m. Hook will speak from Leviticus 19:18: “Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.”
Working together brings the best results
LA GRANDE — The sermon at Faith Lutheran Church in La Grande this Sunday, June 6, will expound upon Jesus’ affirmation that working together, unified, will bring the best results. Jesus said, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand” (Mark 3:24-25). As Jesus’ two examples demonstrate, this is true for a large group of people (“kingdom”) and for personal situations (“house”).
Following the Divine service will be a First Sunday Potluck followed by the monthly meeting of the elders.
