For anyone still using the Mitchell Elementary School parking lot on Sundays, we will no longer be parking there. We rented that lot when we moved into the building, but there is plenty of street parking around here, so we don’t need it. Help us spread the word.

THIS COMING SUNDAY

YOU CALL THAT A FAST
Matthew 9:14-17
Pastor Mark Bergin

Throughout the scriptures the practice of fasting is commended to God’s people. Why? What is the purpose of abstaining from food or drink or some other good thing? Often, we think of fasting as a discipline for the mature, some mysterious conjuring of divine presence for those who are deeply spiritual. But, in truth, fasting is not a tool for increasing divine presence, but rather one for revealing His presence with us all the while. It is not reserved for those who want more of God, but instead offered to anyone who would discover that  all of God is all of ours. He has poured out his Spirit on all flesh. He has lavished us with himself. Fasting is the removal of lesser comforts so that we might discover the ever-present eternal Comforter.
