With love in Christ,

Emmanuel News Flash

Sermon Summary    
     
Last Sunday Fr. Rob spoke on Mark 5:21-43, and the "Markan sandwich" of a story within a story. Here both the healing of Jairus's daughter and the woman with an issue of blood show Jesus reaching back to our reaching out, revealing a dweam within a dweam--God's dream of hope and light in the midst of the human drama. Fitting beautifully with that theme is the quote from our new Presiding Bishop Elect, Bishop Michael Curry: "We are followers of Jesus - Jesus of Nazareth - and the truth is we've got a message to proclaim, a life to live and something to share and offer the world, There's a lot of suffering in this world. There's a lot of heartache, there's a lot of nightmare. We are people who believe that God has a dream and a vision for this world, and that Jesus has shown us how to follow him in the direction of that and how to help this world live into God's dream and vision for us now."
