The Green Bridge II

The Green Bridge II – Pastor Benjamin Wines

Seek good and not evil
That you may live,
And so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you,
Just as you have said.
Hate evil and love good,
And establish justice in the gate;
It may be that the Lord, the God of Hosts,
Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.
I hate, I despise your festivals,
And I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
Even though you offer Me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
I will not accept them,
And the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
I will not look upon.
Take away from Me the noise of your songs;
I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
But let justice roll down like water
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream. from Amos 5:14-15, 21-24

We hope you will join us as we continue our Faith and Art series. Pastor Ben Wines will bring today’s sermon, “The Green Bridge II“. We hope you will join us – either via livestream or in person – starting at 11:00AM. We will be reading from Luke 18:18-27. The artwork Pastor Wines will be sharing in today’s service can be found at the NC Art Museum.

Questions for Further Reflection:
The Green Bridge II depicts a lot of people going under its bridge.
What does the bridge itself represent to you?
How does Christ help us pass through the open door rather than the Green Bridge?
