Applebee’s Dining to Donate
Jul 7 all-day
Dine at any Fort Wayne Applebee’s on the 1st Tuesday of every month and 15% of your bill will be donated to St John Lutheran Church and applied to the Boiler Fund You must print the attached flyer or pick one up at the church to present to your server. Often church members will arrange to eat together at a specific Applebee’s for lunch and/or dinner. Contact Jamie at 426-5751 during office hours or Jay at 249-8229 to find out time and place if you want to get together with others. Remember to pick up Applebee’s SCRIP beforehand and we make a little more. A note to help avoid confusion: When we eat together in a group, they will list a suggested 15% tip on the bill, but the tip is not charged automatically. You must write in the amount of tip on the charge slip to avoid stiffing your wait staff. You may use your scrip card for the tip as well. It is easiest to do this when you give them the scrip card to pay for your meal. Just tell them the tip amount at that time, and you avoid having them run the scrip card a second time.

"Downward Mobility"
a "With God" Daily Devotion by Skye Jethani

Despite being born to slaves, Moses grew up as a child of privilege in the household of Pharaoh. It’s difficult to overstate the opportunities and opulence available to him. Pharaoh was the wealthiest, most powerful person ruling the wealthiest, most powerful empire on earth. Moses had everything the world can offer, and he chose to turn his back on all of it.

Scripture tells us Moses “refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,” but chose to be mistreated with God’s people. He considered a life of slavery greater than all the treasures of Egypt. With this decision to abandon the glories of Pharaoh’s home, Moses foreshadows the decision of Christ to leave the glories of heaven and empty himself to take the role of a servant.

When the Lord wanted to free his people from oppression, he called a man to abandon his comfortable position to identify with slaves. And when the Lord wanted to free all people from death, he called his son to abandon the heights of heaven to identify with frail humanity. What we see in Moses and Jesus is a model for all who seek godly leadership. Henri Nouwen put it this way:

“Jesus confronts him with the hard truth that the servant-leader is the leader who is being led to unknown, undesirable, and painful places. The way of the Christian leader is not the way of upward mobility in which our world has invested so much, but the way of downward mobility ending on the cross.”

The doctrine of the Holy Trinity is complicated; but the love of the Holy Trinity within itself and for the world is not. #HolyTrinitySunday ...
