The parable of the “Good Samaritan” is one of the most well-known and loved parables of Jesus. In this story, a man falls into trouble, and is neglected by two people who should help him, but helped by someone everyone would expect to pass by on the other side. It is a poignant reflection on what it means to be a neighbor, and how often we perceive the neighborhood to be smaller than it actually is or should be. Join us this Sunday, July 14, as we ponder this parable and what it has to teach us about following Jesus today.
Worship begins at 10:00 a.m.
There is a place for you at St. Paul’s!
Sunday’s Scripture Readings:

Time after Pentecost (June 10, 2019 – November 30, 2019)
The time after Pentecost is not properly a separate season of the church year, but a period of reflection on the church’s life in light of the good news of God’s victory over sin, death, and hell at Easter and Pentecost. Stretching throughout much of the calendar year, the Time after Pentecost calls us to growth in faith and maturity in discipleship, and often focuses on the practical implications of the gospel for daily living. The color for the time after Pentecost is green.
