Three things about worship this Sunday:
· First, the sermon is based on the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23). I chose the passage, because it shapes my understanding of what our ministry is about at Oak Hill. I encourage you to read and reflect on the passage before Sunday morning. Listen for how God speaks to your life through this story.
· Second, we will share in Holy Communion during worship. I invite you to prepare the communion elements of bread and juice/wine. You may want to set up a worship place in your home with the communion elements, a candle, cross, or other symbols meaningful to you.
· Finally, I ask that you pray for me, the other worship leaders, and Oak Hill as we go through this season of transition and as my wife, Mary, and I take our place within this community.
