Thorn in the Flesh

As we continue our summer of fun, we're pleased to welcome the Reverend Tom Pietila as the preacher in The Well this Sunday. Tom, Central's Pastor Emeritus, will offer a sermon based on 2 Corinthians 12:2-10 entitled, "Perfect in Weakness."

I will preach a sermon in the sanctuary based on Hosea 11:1-11. If you were bewildered last week by Hosea 1:1-10, we'll try to think through what it means to have this jealous God as our Father, a Father who, at least when speaking through Hosea, was very frustrated with his children, and, yet, who cannot let us go.

Read these passages. Think about Paul's thorn in the flesh. Think about what it means to have a jealous God. Think about where you're called to be this Sunday. I hope it's with us.
