Are you ever curious about the scripture texts that become the foundation for the sermons that Pastor Linda preaches? Every Sunday morning, at 9:00 a.m. a few Central folk gather together to study the Bible together, specifically focusing on the text from which Pastor Linda will be preaching that day. Everyone is welcome to join us. We are adding another opportunity to reflect on those texts, each week, online. Three or four different Central members will contribute a short reflection on an upcoming sermon text. You are invited to read the text and their reflections and then add your own voice to the conversation, if you wish. The conversation will assist Pastor Linda in her sermon preparation and may help all of us to hear the Spirit speaking more clearly though the text and the preacher’s sermon. You may comment on the scripture reading or reply to an existing comment.

Second Sunday after Pentecost, June 18, 2017 Genesis 1:6-7 and Psalm 19:1-6; Theme: Sky and Air

Genesis 1:6-7

6 And God said, "Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." 7 So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. 8 God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

Psalm 19:1-6

1 The heavens are telling the glory of God; 
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
2 Day to day pours forth speech, 
and night to night declares knowledge.
3 There is no speech, nor are there words; 
their voice is not heard;
4 yet their voice goes out through all the earth, 
and their words to the end of the world. 

In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun,
5 which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, 
and like a strong man runs its course with joy.
6 Its rising is from the end of the heavens, 
and its circuit to the end of them; 
and nothing is hid from its heat.
