August 9 – Pentecost X (Proper 14A) – The Lord of Life intimately and meticulously attends to His creation (Job 38:4-18). He even gently but relentlessly looks after the inanimate objects. But did His devotion to mountains and oceans drive Him to order our world from within and not just from outside (Matthew 14:32)? No. He has put on the universe He put together so that He may love and save and have humankind. And He has not spared the smallest detail. So why would we exclude any, whatever their size, skills, or circumstances?

Wheaton Area Senior Citizens will meet on Monday, August 10 at 6:30 p.m., at the Wheaton Center, with potluck meal, business meeting and Bingo. Everyone welcome to join us.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.
