Week 2 in our new space at 351 Centre St. in JP

We are trying different ways to configure seating at our 9:30am Sunday service, where we will be listening to a Lesson-Sermon on matter. The Golden Text is a classic that offers new insights when looked up in different Bible translations. The King James Version in used in the Lesson, John 6: 63: It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: (KJV). But look at these others, too:

It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. (NRSV)

The Spirit alone gives eternal life. Human effort accomplishes nothing. (New Living)

 What gives life is God’s Spirit; human power is of no use at all. (Good News)

 What gives life is God’s Spirit; human power is of no use at all. (JB Phillips)

The Spirit can make life. Sheer muscle and willpower don’t make anything happen. (The Message)
