First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 7-30-17

by Martha Pennell, 

Germania Luncheon club meets Wednesday, August 9th, at noon at Collins Park for a picnic luncheon. 

Everyone is welcome to attend an ice cream social at 2 pm Sunday, August 13th, at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church social hall. 

In Matthew 13: 44-46, Jesus describes the kingdom of heaven, where it is, how it happens, and its effect on us. He was talking about “Kingdom Life,” without buildings or a geographical description, instead using two parables. 

In the first parable, a man walked through a field and found a trunk full of money. He went and sold all he had and bought the field. 

 In the second parable a merchant stopped at a flea market and among junk found a pearl as big as a baseball. He covered it and sold his belongings, then returned and bought the pearl. 

 Pastor Tom told us heaven can be found by accident or by an intentional search, and is of more value than we can imagine. God’s kingdom is woven together by Jesus himself, and he wants us to be part of it. 

Pastor Tom explained there are two basic pillars in this weave. The first is forgiveness, and the second is unconditional love. No one is forgotten or ignored. 

We have to be done with what is not important to participate in the kingdom of God. Walk in the field or look for pearls. The kingdom of God is a reality woven together by Jesus based on forgiveness and unconditional love. 

Take tradition from Jesus. Kingdom life is a gift from him!
