7th Sunday after the Epiphany

  Gospel 

Luke 6:27-38      

27[Jesus said:] “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. 29To one who strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also, and from one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either. 30Give to everyone who begs from you, and from one who takes away your goods do not demand them back. 31And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.

32“If you love those who love you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33And if you do good to those who do good to you, what benefit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34And if you lend to those from whom you expect to receive, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, to get back the same amount. 35But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. 36Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

37“Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; 38give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”

  *Congregation Information-Sharing Days are days Council has put on the calendar for the purpose of updating one another with information (e.g., ministries; financial reports; etc.). These are not intended to be one-way events from Council to the congregation. These are events for sharing information across Grace. So, if your ministry team is planning a kick-off on something, or an update - plan ahead to steward these dates well. These days may also offer a time of Q&A.                 (NOTE: These dates are not intended as Congregational Meetings, however, should we need to, they can be converted to Special Congregational Meeting days per following the constitutional guidelines for holding a Special Meeting to address unforeseen decision/business purposes.)
