Give To God What Is God's

Exodus 33:15-23; Psalm 99; 1Thessalonians 1:4-10; Matthew 22:15-22 Bigfork Community United Methodist Church October 18, 2020, – 20TH Sunday After Pentecost The Pharisees send their disciples and some Herodians to trap Jesus today. We have been eavesdropping these last few weeks on their conversations, and it is not surprising that the powers that want to contain or confine or do away with our Jesus…for good.
