This weekend’s message reminds me of the 1989 movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Near the end of the movie, Indie has found the Holy Grail, the cup Jesus used in the Lord’s Supper. The only trouble is that there are dozens of cups to choose from. The ancient crusader guarding the Holy Grail says, “You must choose… but choose wisely.” You can see what happens by watching the movie clip here.
In the message this week, we hear Jesus talk about drinking a cup as well. But what cup would you choose to drink? Will you choose wisely… or poorly? Prepare for the message by reading Matthew 20:17-28.
This week we received another inquiry from a parent wanting to enroll her child in our school. If you or someone you know might be interested in our 3K – 8th grade Christian school, click here to schedule a tour. By participating in the Parental School Choice programs and through tuition assistance provided by generous members of St. Paul’s, we want to make our school available to any parent who would like their children to benefit from this ministry.
