Our next worship series at Good Shepherd is on the book of Ephesians – This is (y)our life. The epistle lessons from the eighth Sunday after Pentecost through the fifteenth Sunday walk through the book of Ephesians. Below is our congregational preview for the series:
The book of Ephesians is an incredibly practical book for Christians at every stage of life. Here we see what the Christian life looks like, and what it doesn’t look like. Over the next 8 weeks, we will explore Paul’s letter to the Ephesians as if we were paging through a family photo album. We’ll see how we were adopted as God’s children (baby photos), how we are united as one family (the group family picture), we’ll also page through graduation pictures, wedding photos, a military ID, and more. This is your life! Yet, thankfully, because we’re all in this together – this is OUR life. We encourage you to read through the book of Ephesians in your personal devotions in preparation for this practical worship series – This is (y)our life.
