If I were asked to describe myself, I might use such descriptors as: white, female, tall, socially engaged, sister, Georgian (who never really felt like a southerner) . . . But our passage for Sunday, says, “As many of you as were baptized into Christ . . . there is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female.” (vv 27-28)
Join us on Sunday as we wrestle with questions such as: What do we do with this suggestion that, in Christ, our unique descriptors are stripped away? Do our heritage, our religious upbringing, our gender and race not matter to God? What does this reconfigured identity mean for how we relate to one another and to God?
We will also celebrate Barrett Payne and the Payne family as we give thanks for his ministry at DHPC and pray for the next steps on their journey.
- Focal Scripture – Galatians 3:1-9, 23-29

I look forward to being back in the pews with you all. Peace,
