|This weeks readings and question of the week:|
Take time to mediate on God’s word and prepare for worship this Sunday. And as you meditate on them, consider the Question of the Week:
What barriers must I knock down in my life that prevent me from becoming a more faithful follower of Christ?
The word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one to whom we must render an account.
- The word of God is living and active, discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart./ Much of what we say and what we hear in the day does not bear a second thought. It is empty twaddle. The Scriptures are different. We have given more study and care to understanding them than to any other human words. God’s word is meaty and powerful, pushing us to look at ourselves
Sow freely, Lord God, the seed of your word over the world. May it fall in good soil in us, and may it be heard wherever people live.

|JEFF CHU – Does Jesus Really Love Me? : An Afterword|
Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America is part memoir and part investigative analysis that explores the explosive and confusing intersection of faith, politics, and sexuality in Christian America.
The quest to find an answer is at the heart of Does Jesus Really Love Me?-a personal journey of belief, an investigation, and a portrait of a faith and a nation at odds by award-winning reporter Jeff Chu.
