Camas Friends Church

A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA

Preparation for Sunday

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I trust your week is going well! I look forward to seeing many of you tonight for Soup and Bread and wanted to remind you that we have childcare available (we’ll be asking for donations to help with that) and Jason Twyman is planning to work with the older kids (8 and up).

This Sunday (mother’s day!) we will continue our reflections in 1 John. Here’s our text for the week:

“Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith. Who is it that conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ, not with the water only but with the water and the blood. And the Spirit is the one that testifies, for the Spirit is the truth.” (1 John 5:1–6 NRSV)

Queries:

  • What do you hear in this passage?
  • How do you see this text connecting to, building on, or saying something different from what we’ve been discussing lately?
  • What is challenging for you here?

In Gospel Love,
Wess
