FROM THE PASTOR:
We’ve been talking a lot about change lately, and about moving into the future together as a faith community. As followers of Jesus, we know that even as things in the world change in some ways and stay the same in others, we are constantly being changed and renewed by God, from the inside out both as individuals and as the body of Christ. As God works his will in our hearts and our lives, we are enabled to meet the world’s circumstances with faith, and in the light of Christ’s love, empowered to live as a faith inspired, Spirit led community serving God and our neighbors. In his letter to the Roman church the apostle Paul wrote,
“2 Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2, NRSVUE)
We are transformed by God’s grace, body mind and soul. What is our response? Do we acknowledge God’s action in our lives, and share what God has done for us with others? We are called to praise God, and to celebrate and share God’s blessings in our lives and our faith communities. We are called to witness and testify to the ways in which our lives are being transformed by God’s radical love and grace.
We are called on, not to be conformed to worldliness, but to live into God’s grace in our lives. As we are transformed and renewed, we are prepared and equipped to recognize and embrace God’s grace in ordinary moments, God’s goodness in the world just as it is, to live in unity and to love others with open hearts.
Your Sibling in Christ,
