In this week's gospel Jesus is still in the temple teaching. The Pharisees and Herodians, normally bitter opponents, have joined forces to try to trap Jesus and have Him arrested for "legitimate" reasons. Jesus side steps their trap and delivers one of His most quoted responses: "Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and render unto God what is God's." High drama, great wisdom, and much to explore as we apply this teaching to our own lives. Join us!

By Dorothy Gager On “the Way”, we toured two World Heritage churches (8 A.D. and 9 A.D) at Oviedo, Spain after which it was time for lunch. We had a picnic lunch with us, so we responded to the invitation of a windy narrow road to drive to the top of the hill. A huge statue of a victorious and compassionate Christ with outstretched arms welcomed us. I would estimate the size of 100 to 150 feet. We observed pilgrims finding their way to the foot of this Jesus as we enjoyed lunch. Unaware of other people walking their dogs, taking pictures of the view, and lunching, the pilgrims cast their walking sticks and back packs aside, and reverently dropped to their knees at the foot of the Christ.

By Aaron and Corie AndersonWe want to draw on an over-used line from Forrest Gump to tell the story of finding St. John's Anglican Church. Finding a new church is "… like a box of chocolates -- you never know what you're going to get." Well, in finding St. John's Anglican Church, we have opened the box of chocolates, and discovered an amazing group of people, a place where Christ is truly present, and we are delighted to be here!
