“Morality vs. Humility”
Read Mark 7:1–30
- When/Why/How often do you feel like you are a better Christian than others?
- How do you approach God? Do you approach Him based on your “cleanness” or is there a sense of desperation as you stand before Him?
- A Syrophoenician Woman in today’s passage is both courageous and humble at the same time. What enables her to be so? What about us today?

Tapestry Christmas Brunch
December 3, 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Christmas is…so many things. You can fill in the blank and your answer will be unique to you, and your answer may change from year to year. Maybe this year it feels like frantic planning or too many commitments, perhaps you feel joyful expectation or unexpected sadness. Wherever you are, however you feel, God understands them all because the one constant answer is Christmas is…Emmanuel, God with us. So, join us for a morning of good food, some laughter, fun and prizes, a few carols and a bigger understanding of God with us…through it all.
