The Face of Christ
by Pablo Renauld (Argentina, born 1974)

This Sunday (June 26) is the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost the Reverend Wes Denyer will be preaching a sermon entitled "Toward Jerusalem." There is a point in the life and ministry of Jesus when we are told, "He set his face to go to Jerusalem." This event marks a turn toward discipleship which is more serious and demanding. The days where Jesus enjoyed wild popularity come to an end, as he begins the journey towards Jerusalem and the cross. This story reminds us that being a disciple of Christ is not always an easy thing. In the sermon this Sunday, we will consider how, as we live out our faith in 2016, we may expect to encounter challenges and responsibilities which will require courage, hope and faith to overcome. Sunday's Order of Service has been posted here.

THIS WILL BE THE LAST SUNDAY AT ROSEDALE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH UNTIL SUNDAY, AUGUST 7. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT CHURCH THIS SUNDAY OR AT THE BBQ AT THE CHURCH ON JULY 13.
