Hidden Figures: Week 2 – Dec. 4, 2022

Scriptures: Joshua 2, Joshua 6:22-25, Ephesians 2:1-10, Hebrews 11:6 & 21, James 2:24-26

Rahab’s faith was in the God of heaven and earth and she was considered righteous because she acted on that faith. She was made right with God. In each of these mentions, she is still called Rahab the prostitute. Why? Surely she was much more than that. But I wonder if it’s an intentional reminder of where she came from. What she was saved from. Who she was before she was rescued and given a brand new life? Thanks be to God that we are made right with him by His grace, no matter where we have come from or what we have done.

1. How do you see God’s hand of protection and provision for Rahab? For the Spies? For the Isrealites?

2. How did Rahab demonstrate her faith?

3. How do grace, faith, and works come together in your life? How are you demonstrating your faith through good works?

Greetings,
 
On August 26, 2021, IL Governor J.B. Pritzker issued an Executive Order mandating that masks be worn at all indoor gatherings. Although churches are exempt from the Executive Order, out of respect for governing authorities, Parkview has continued to ask staff, leaders, volunteers, and those attending Sunday gatherings to wear a mask while indoors. We are grateful for our people’s understanding and willingness to do so. The Governor recently indicated that his Executive Order will be rescinded on Monday, February 28th making masks no longer required in most indoor settings. In anticipation of that, on Sunday, February 27th Parkview will return to a “mask optional” policy.

While the mask policy has once again shifted, our commitment to your health and wellbeing has not. We remain dedicated to thoroughly cleaning our public spaces before and after our gatherings. Masks and hand sanitizer are still readily available to those who want them.

Navigating these difficult days has not always been clear or easy. Whatever your perspective on current realities, as fellow Christians, let us allow kindness, grace and compassion characterize our interaction and relationships. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “Let us be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you.”

I look forward to being with you on Sundays.
 
Grace and Peace,
