Scripture & a Snapshot - Week 49


love---pink---full-frame


“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you."


Luke 6:27-28


As we approach the 10th anniversary of 9-11 many of us are reflecting on that tragic day.
Memories and questions may flood your mind, or perhaps your mind goes numb.
Our church is doing a sermon series on 9-11. It started last week and I already know it will be a series I'll remember for years to come.

This Sunday I invite you to watch, as this weekend's sermon is meant to shed light on Islam.
I'm guessing most of you don't know much about it. I'll admit that I don't.

You can catch the live service at 10:45am or 5:00pm CST and it should be available at your convenience starting Monday.
For now, here's the promo video:

Want to join in this challenge?
Here's how to participate:

1. Select a scripture.
My hope is that each week you will search your Bible and select a verse that has meaning for you.
Here's a link to a good Bible verse search engine.

2. Add a photo to it.
I hope that you will chose a photo that goes with your chosen scripture, and not just throw these two elements together. The photo can be from your archives or a new shot. Please only use your own photos. You can have the scripture on your photo, below it, make a collage - however you want, as long as the two elements are together!

3. Put the Scripture & a Snapshot button in your post.
You won't be deleted or banned if you don't. It just helps spread the word...and the Word. ;) 

It also helps visitors from the blog hop quickly identify your Scripture & a Snapshot post.

4. Come back here and link up your post. 
Please link directly to your Scripture & A Snapshot post, not the home page of your blog.

  2. wonderful photo! great verses.

    i don't know as much as i should about islam. but i read a book called blood of the moon. and that opened my eyes to a lot. i read it almost immediately after 9-11, when someone on the radio was talking about it.

  3. I love studying religions, and took a course in college on comparative religions that was taught by the most amazing pastor. That class was crazy hard, and he pushed us (which of course the big nerd in me thrived on, haha) but he was also so inspiring. He pushed boundaries in this public college by approaching in as a defense of Christianity in ever so subtle ways. He made me realize that it is important to understand where people are coming from before we can direct them in which way to go! :)

  7. I was just thinking about 9-11 and how much we have to be grateful for and how we need to keep the families that were directly impacted in our prayers along with this nation.

    Looks like I'll have to check out the series. Thanks for sharing and God bless.

  10. Walking our faith life means following His word including loving our enemies. I don't always find that easy! But seeking to understand is helpful. Thanks for sharing the link to your sermon series.
