Rev. John Svendsen
Scripture: Luke 10:25-37 and Luke 24:13-35

Pastor Charles’ warmup:
This Sunday, October 15, we welcome my younger brother, Rev. John Svendsen (a.k.a. John the Baptist), to our WPC pulpit. John has recently finished 27 years as the Pastor of the First Baptist Church of El Segundo in El Segundo, CA. John's sermon is entitled, "Hit the Road". Our two Scripture texts are Luke 24:13-35 and Luke 10:25-37, which are the stories of two roads - the road to Emmaus and the road to Jericho. The first describes our walk with Jesus and the second tells us about our walk with others. John will remind us that in order to have a balanced life of faith, the Christian must walk both roads. If we walk only the Emmaus road we become selfish. If we walk only the Jericho road, we lose the source of our walk. So come hear a Baptist in a Presbyterian church! I've looked forward to this day and I hope to see many of our beloved WPC family in worship.

Luke 10:25-37
Just then a lawyer stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he said, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” He said to him, “What is written in the law? What do you read there?” He answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” And he said to him, “You have given the right answer; do this, and you will live.” But wanting to justify himself, he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell into the hands of robbers, who stripped him, beat him, and went away, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road; and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan while traveling came near him; and when he saw him, he was moved with pity. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, having poured oil and wine on them. Then he put him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said, ‘Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.’ Which of these three, do you think, was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?” He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
