July 10, 2020 - Change

I don’t know about you, but it seems that everywhere I turn I’m dealing with a change in the way that I have to do things. Our human nature wants things to stay the same so that we know what to expect, what’s next. It’s no different for the church. Right now, this pandemic is bringing much change to the way we can SAFELY worship in our sanctuary.

During the next few days, we will be communicating with you in several different ways to try and get as much information out as possible. Watch your mail, your email, and our website for information. Pastor Dawn will also include more information in her Wednesday Word next week, as will I in the Friday devotion. All the church staff will answer any questions as best we can. We need to keep in mind that this is a fluid situation that will most likely be changing often over the next several months.

One other word about change to ponder. Jesus’ whole ministry was about change, radical change. As a follower of Christ, when we do as Peter and the other disciples did and turn to follow him, we are submitting our lives to change, radical change. I have learned that when things are smooth and calm that I am off the path that Jesus has called me to follow. I am missing the mark. As I make my way back onto the path with Christ, the waves pick up and the boat starts to rock. If I have my eyes on Jesus, I know that I am headed in the right direction.

Lord Jesus, light the way you are calling us to travel. Amen.

Always, to God be the glory!
