James says that not many of you should become teachers, because teachers will be judged more strictly (James 3:1). We might not think we are smart enough, or gifted enough, to teach- may of us might not do so well on "Are you Smarter than a 5th Grader?" And yet, Jesus commands us to go and teach (Matthew 28:20). As Jesus was commissioned to preach the good news (Luke 4:18, 19), so he now commissions us. This Sunday we bless our teachers and leaders as they begin a new season. We will also be blessed as we celebrate both sacraments. We share the communion meal and we baptize Aleisha Van Houten. Sunday, Sept 21, 2014, 10 a.m.
