Getting Ready for Sunday, 09.03

Exodus 3:1-15

Matthew 16:21-28

To “take up the cross” then is not an invitation, for disciples then or now, to start going around looking for crosses to bear.  Crosses will be provided.  Our responsibility is to bear ours with grace, as Jesus did, realizing that it will lead us to a radical re-alignment of our carefully constructed lives.  What cross are you bearing now?  What cross have you been avoiding?
