Everyone Who Calls On The Name Of The Lord

Joel 2:23-32; Psalm 65; 2 Timothy 4:6-8, 16-18; Luke 18:9-14 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church October 27, 2019 –Reformation Sunday It is important to place our Hebrew Bible reading from the prophet Joel in its historical context to understand its meaning, and the thrust of all our readings for this day of Worship.
