On the 9th Sunday After Pentecost, Rev. Jenny Smith Walz preached on Joy. I love this quote which tells us that God will throw a party for us because that’s what God does. Rev. Walz reassures us that God treasures and delights in each one of us, and when we go missing, He will search until he finds us.  

Pastor Jenny stated that the joy we experience from God, we must bring to others. “When my well-being and your well-being are caught up in something together, then we can feel with one another,” she added.  She also noted, “It’s better to focus more on ‘We’ and ‘Us’ than on ‘Me’ or ‘I’ or ‘You.’

She based her sermon on Scripture from Luke 15:1-10.  Here, Jesus tells the “Parable of the Lost Sheep when Pharisees and religious leaders accuse him of welcoming and eating with sinners.”
