Our upcoming Sunday Celebration Service April 11, 2021 at 10:30 am
"Turning the other Cheek" with Rev. Ken Ficklin
In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus informed his listeners that if they were struck on the right cheek, they were to turn the other also. This teaching has been confusing to many. “Why would I want to turn my other cheek, too?” they ask. Jesus was not asking us to be doormats or to let ourselves be abused by someone else. He was talking about non-resistance. Metaphorically, we might say that Jesus was saying that if someone “slaps” you physically or with words,to retaliate only escalates the situation. Please join us this Sunday either in our sanctuary or on Face Book live stream when Rev. Ken will talk about how to face confrontive situations in a positive, non-restive way where everyone feels respected.
