Many Hands, One Heart, Sacred Love for All
Sunday October 4th, 2020 at 10:30 am 
 

 
Come to the Manor, the table is ready, “Keep the Sabbath Holy”
      Exodus 20:1-20; Phillipians 3:4-14; Matthew 21:33-46

We are the Sabbath
The year was 2011, 60 on Pilgrimage in Israel, there were three Sabbath Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We are the Sabbath.
God Spoke these words, challenge, command, preach, no war, no sin, forgive now!
Proclaim risk, courage is now. Yes is always.
Remember the Sabbath. Be the radical heart of good news, in the broken humanity. Seek God’s healing compassion. Become like Christ. Transform as Saul became Paul, transform, the gift before and after. Take on liberation, freedom, grip the hand of the creator.
Listen to the parable, guiding, unlock, un-hinder the reign of Christ.
The stone has become the cornerstone and the keystone.
The stone removes pride, prejudice, selfishness, greed,  and guilt
Equip us with love. “The world you desire comes not by chance but by change.
Strive to live together in peace.
BE-LONGING
