There’s nothing better than Summer Sundays at Grace!
By Rev. Cindy Marino
Summer Worship: Holy Heroes, Human Nature and a Good Cup of Coffee!
Have you ever felt like you are never going to be enough? Maybe you feel that way in your chosen profession, your marriage, your parenting? Maybe you can’t retire because you just haven’t quite reached your goals? Maybe there’s an ability you’ve always felt you lack that keeps you from being the best you thought you could be. Or maybe, you never had expectations
of being the best, because you are just not.
You are certainly not alone. Life happens to bend and crack those dreams in all of us. The funny thing is, God never seems intent upon using those strengths we thought we would have or should have. Instead, God lands on some weakness in us that we would just as soon bury and forget. And God raises up heroes out of those weaknesses.
Our July sermon series will enter the lives of a few folks like us, some of whom were destined for greatness until tragedy intervened. And some of whom were destined for obscurity until God intervened. To illustrate the stories, we’ll look to, of all places, DC Comics! The super heroes in the Superman series have never held any appeal for me, so delving into the dark, comic superhero world has been a new experience! But I am fascinated by the parallels with the heroes of the Bible. I think you will be, too! Grab your favorite geek and invite them to join you as we enter this new world together. Our Vacation Bible School kids will be learning along with us!
