I have several friends who are into improv comedy, a form of live theatre in which the plot, characters and dialogue are made up in the moment. I am terrified by improv. Even typing this, the idea of standing up in front of people having to be publicly creative on the fly makes my hands sweat. What if I freeze? What if I’m too slow? What if I make a fool of myself? I like a plan and to feel comfortable that I know what I’m doing.
Our passage opens with the reminder that priests have stood day-in-day-out “offering again and again the same sacrifices that can never take away sins” and then Christ “offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins” (v. 11-12). What can we learn from God who shifts direction so that grace can be dispensed in maximum supply.
Scripture: Hebrews 10:11-25
Sermon: “Yes and . . . ”
This week, we will present Bibles to our young people in kindergarten and third grade, and we will commission our confirmation class for their preparation to join the church. We’ll also hear a Vintage & Visionary reflection from third grader, Olivia Escobar.
I look forward to exploring God’s wild and wonderful calling with you. See you in the pews or across the screen,
