                 Third Sunday in Lent

  
Gospel 

Luke 13:1-9     

  1There were some present at that very time who told [Jesus] about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2And he answered them, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered in this way? 3No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. 4Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them: do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who lived in Jerusalem? 5No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
  6And he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. 7And he said to the vinedresser, ‘Look, for three years now I have come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and I find none. Cut it down. Why should it use up the ground?’ 8And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. 9Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”

  *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.)
