The Power to Lay It Down and the Power to Take It Up.
Text: John 10:11-18
Rev. Beth Waltemath Preaching
If Jesus is the good shepherd, what does it mean to be good sheep? The intelligence of a sheep may surprise us. This Sunday, we explore the ways we have distorted our relationship with power. Perhaps there are more ways to relate to power than exerting it or giving it up. Come to worship, willing to discern your own relationship to power in every age and every relationship. How have you overused and abused power? How have you ignored or abdicated power? When have you seen your power clearly and shared it generously? Jesus has the ability to lay his power down and to take it back up. Do you?
