…what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?  Luke 15: 8

In Luke 15 There’s a little discussion about the company Jesus keeps. His folks are not proper and polite, and the authorities don’t like it. So Jesus offers a teaching in the form of a couple parables. We will put ourselves in the places of those who heard Jesus speak, and of the characters in the parable. What would we feel and think if we were the Pharisees, on one hand, or the tax collectors and sinners, on the other?  What would our Christian lives be like if we imitated the single-minded search of the shepherd who left the flock to look for one lost sheep, or of the woman who swept the house to find a lost coin?

Our final summer soloist is violinist Blythe Brown! Even better: Blythe invited her violin teacher to church to play a duet with her. Blythe and her family have been part of our Peace community for years and years.
