Summer Fruit and Olive Trees – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 July 17, 2022

This week we continue exploring the visions recorded in the latter half of the book of Amos. The focus this week is a basket of summer fruit and God’s judgment of the people’s treatment of the poor in their midst.

What happens when we care only for ourselves and neglect those in need? What are the consequences of placing our trust in our own strength and resources? What are the possibilities when we rely on God and live into God’s vision for the world instead?

Scripture readings:

Amos 8:1-12
Psalm 52
Colossians 1:15-28
Luke 10:38-42
