No Judgments, Just Jesus

Epiphany 4 – Drop Your Stone! The Clenched Fist and the Open Hand (John 8:2-11)

The religious leaders attempt to trap Jesus using “human bait” but Jesus refuses to play their game. The relevance of the whole event is best captured in Carl Sandburg’s quote, “The single clenched fist lifted and ready, Or the open asking hand held out and waiting. Choose: For we meet by one or the other.”

Opening Hymn: Fairest Lord Jesus
Closing Doxology: Glory Be to the Father
