Sunday Recap for August 18, 2019:
The Problem of Evil

Mission Highlight: Throughout the year, people in our congregation from various districts across the city share information and highlights about their districts. This is a great way to learn about the city because, as followers of Jesus, we are sent out to love and serve and to share the good news of Jesus with the city.

Thank you, Mel and Jamin, for sharing the Mission Highlight this week on District 7. Neighborhoods in this district include Twin Peaks, West Portal, St. Francis Wood, Balboa Terrace, Ingleside Terrace, Stonestown, Lakeside, Park Merced, and Mt. Davidson Manor. An estimated 73,000 people live in these neighborhoods, and 53% are white, 34% Asian, 11% Latino, and 3% black. 30% were born overseas and 63% have bachelor’s degree or higher.

In this part of the city, any attempt at a grid breaks down and roads twist and turn around Twin Peaks, Mt Davidson, Sutro Forest and smaller parks like Golden Gate Heights, Hawk Hill, Grandview and Rocky Outcrop. Here, neighborhoods have a small town feel and the wild and un-city like parts are great places for urban hikes.

Jamin led us in prayer for District 7 Supervisor Norman Yee as well as those serving the neighborhoods through their occupations and businesses. Let's continue to pray for, love, and act in the interests of the best welfare of the city!
Link to this Week's Sermon: “The Problem of Evil" (Exodus 5:1-7:7)

"My thesis is that the practice of non-violence requires a belief in divine vengeance. If God were not angry at injustice and deception and did not make a final end of violence, that God would not be worthy of our worship." (Miroslav Volf)

“If you have a God great and transcendent enough to be mad at because he hasn't stopped evil and suffering in the world, then you have (at the same moment) a God great and transcendent enough to have good reasons for allowing it to continue that you can't know. Indeed, you can't have it both ways.” (Tim Keller)

Main Idea: God loves, so we love
