The Pharisee and the Tax Collector

Luke 18:9-14


A Pharisee goes to the temple and prays boastfully about his works, how good he is, and how much better he is than the publican (tax collector).  The tax collector humbly bows his head and asks God to forgive him of his sins.


This powerful short parable makes an important implied conclusion; "righteous acts without compassion and love are not considered righteous by God."  It forces its audience to recognize that when we exclude anyone from God's grace, we run the risk of excluding ourselves from God.  God honors and uplifts the humble but rejects the arrogant.




The Church Street CPCA STREAMM Initiative will host its STREAMM 6th Edition on Saturday October 18, 2014.

The program will include a rocket lunch presentation conducted by Brother Christopher Brown.  We will also have a special reading initiative for our Pre K and K children.  This initiative will be presented by the Daniels, Elder LeRoy Daniels, and his cousins, Anthony and Teneshia.  The STREAMM Medical component will lead the entire church in the awareness and fight against breast cancer.  The activities begin with registration and continental breakfast from 9:00 - 9:25 and conclude with outdoor activities and lunch from 11:00 to 12:00.

Thank you for your support and presence.
