WPC Warm Up, October 16, 2017
This Sunday, October 15, we welcome my younger brother, Rev. John Svendsen (a.k.a. John the Baptist), to our WPC pulpit. John has recently finished 27 years as the Pastor of the First Baptist Church of El Segundo in El Segundo, CA. I have the pleasure of assisting in the 9:30 am (traditional) and 11:15 am (contemporary) worship services.
John's sermon is entitled, "Hit the Road". Our two Scripture texts are Luke 24:13–35 and Luke 10:25–37, which are the stories of two roads - the road to Emmaus and the road to Jericho. The first describes our walk with Jesus and the second tells us about our walk with others. John will remind us that in order to have a balanced life of faith, the Christian must walk both roads. If we walk only the Emmaus road we become selfish. If we walk only the Jericho road, we lose the source of our walk.
