From The Pastor

 

 

“Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers…While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.” (Acts 13:1-3)

Dear Friends,

This summer many of us will be doing a lot of traveling - visits to family and friends, long awaited vacations, business trips, service trips and mission trips.  From start to finish the Bible is a story of many journeys:  Adam and Eve leave Eden to enter a fallen world; Abraham and Sarah leave home for an unknown land; the children of Israel leave bondage in Egypt for freedom in the Promised Land; the people are exiled in Babylon only to return again; Jesus goes from Galilee to Jerusalem to make His final journey from death to resurrection; Paul and Barnabas are sent into the Roman world to proclaim the gospel.  The Book of Revelation awakens us to the truth that all of our journeys lead to the city of God.

As we travel, we go in the grace of God and knowledge that God is guiding our way.  Our travels are not just “trips” from one place to another, but spiritual journeys into the mystery of God.  What may seem like the most ordinary trip may be the beginning of a new understanding and a deeper life of faith.  This especially holds with regards to our journey of transition as a congregation.  In his poem, For the Time Being, W. H. Auden writes:

He is the Way.

Follow Him through the land of Unlikeness;

You will see rare beasts, and have unique adventures.

 

No matter where or why we go, God is sending us into the world for the sake of Jesus Christ.  Many great adventures are before us all!

                                                                                      Yours in Christ,

                                                                                      Roger
