Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all. Colossians 3:11 ESV

…[Jesus] said to [the Pharisees] “Therefore, render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”  Matthew 22:21b ESV

You might have noticed that our nation is in the middle of a Presidential election.

Debates are occurring, issues are being discussed, and accusations are flying on social media. The fault line dividing the two parties runs through families and threatens to divide neighborhoods, cities and states.  The pollsters breathlessly release new data, and everyone is glued to their own media echo chamber. There are more accusations and less civility; there is more yelling and less listening. Our nation is awash in distrust.

What would Jesus say about our situation?  More pointedly, what IS Jesus telling us in His Word? This weekend at Trinity Downtown, I’m going to try to address our current morass in the light of Holy Scripture. What is our role as Christians? How can we faithfully represent Jesus to our broken world?

Tackling this subject may mean that I’m a little crazy. Or, perhaps, brave. More likely, a little of both.

You can join us either in-person or online Saturday at 5:00 pm and Sunday at 9:00 am. Reservations are required to attend an in-person worship service; you can see the details at www.trinitydt.org.  You may also make a reservation by calling Stefanie at 713.224.0684 from 8:30-2:30 each weekday. If you are not comfortable attending an in-person service, you can watch the “live stream” of our Satellite Service at 5:00 pm on Saturday, or our traditional service on Sunday at 9:00 am by clicking here. And, of course, you may also participate by watching either of these services “on demand” by clicking here.

We look forward to celebrating the power of Jesus’ love with you this weekend.
