FROM THE DESK OF WILL SPOKES, SENIOR PASTOR
Welcome to the Red Mountain Sunday Recap!
The Sunday Recap includes an assortment of items to help keep the Gospel in front of you throughout the week. Most are from the previous Sunday while a couple look ahead to next Sunday. As you read consider these questions. Did anything land with you during worship? What did it make you think? How did it make you feel? What did you find especially sweet or challenging from God's word? What did we sing, read, or pray that left an impression on you?
Food For Thought:
Every call to worship is a call into the Real World.... I encounter such constant and widespread lying about reality each day and meet with such skilled and systematic distortion of the truth that I'm always in danger of losing my grip on reality. The reality, of course, is that God is sovereign and Christ is savior. The reality is that prayer is my mother tongue and the eucharist my basic food. The reality is that baptism, not Myers-Briggs, defines who I am. – Eugene Peterson
For next Sunday:
Sermon Text: 2 Kings 5:1-14
O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing - Adoration

Fountain of Grace - Communion
I have two articles to share with you this week. The first you may have seen already but is worth a look if you haven't. This article details the 50 most segregating school borders in America and where Birmingham fits into that overall picture.
The second article is a blog post about parenting...especially when faced with how others may view your child and you as a parent. It asks some penetrating questions all with a view to helping you turn again to Jesus in faith for help and grace.
