Recap of May  14  – “The Image of God: Christian Charity and Hospitality” was the title of Jon Heerboth’s presentation Sunday, May 14. Jon cited the first chapter of Genesis and the first Article of the Apostles’ Creed to show all human’s are created in the image of God. In fact, in Judaism the only earthly representation of God is God’s created beings—other people. 

The New Testament tells of God’s work of Salvation through Jesus and it tells but it also tells how the early church practiced hospitality and charity. In fact, Jesus’ ministry was a ministry of caring for others—social justice if you will.

We talked about how our congregation deals with people who come with requests for food, gas, etc. and the difficulty in knowing if the needs they present are genuine. We also discussed dealing with people we encounter who are asking for money.
