“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. (Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV)
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ…
I know what the colander says, but I find it hard to believe that as I am writing this it is the first morning of fall – but it still feels like summer. We begin a new season, summer is past fall is upon us. The leaves have already begun to turn their brilliant colors and I am excited to see all the “fall foliage”. Living in the mountains I must confess that there are times I must consciously stop and admire the spectacular panorama of colors that God’s handiwork displays. God’s work is truly magnificent.
Sometimes a new season begins in our congregation and we don’t notice what God is doing and the work that is happening in his name. After decades of service to St Luke’s a new season happened with the departure of Beth Counterman – we thank her for her service and dedication to St Luke. Now we welcome Susie Schlottman as the Administrative Assistant. God has lead Susie to us and for that we are grateful. Susie is learning the responsibilities of the position remarkably fast and is doing a fine job. We are excited to have her on board and are blessed by her ministry of service to St Luke. Please, as you are able, please help her when you can you have no idea all the work she does.
We have another new season at St Luke beginning on November 4, 2016 we will commence a “Friday Night – Sunday School”. Our society changes and sometimes we don’t notice that either. We as a Christian Church must change and adapt to the changes or we will be “left behind”. Our society has moved into a season whereby Sunday evolved into a “2nd Saturday in the weekend. No longer is the Sabbath Day (Sunday morning) reserved for the worship and the honoring of God. We pass the community park on our way to worship and the park is full of children playing baseball, playing soccer, civic football games, etc. too busy for God. Subsequently, God has been bumped off their radar screen for quite a while now.
Sometimes we must “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past”. We as a Church represent Christ to the world. If you look at the word represent it literally means to re-present (present again) Christ. We’re doing just that with the Friday Night Sunday School. We are re-presenting Jesus, but rather than Sunday morning – its Friday night. It’s the same Gospel, the same story of Jesus' love – just a little different format and day that’s all. I believe in my heart that God is doing a new thing in the life of St Luke and a new season in Christian education.
Friday nights will be an exciting evening of crafts, games, movies, snacks. Most importantly they will have exposure to the story of Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God! I believe the Holy Word of God when he said, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Here of late, our society has been a wasteland for the gospel now we can re-present Christ and watch as God is making a new thing in the life of St Luke’s Church.
We are in a new season, “… the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord endures forever.”(1 Peter 1:24-25 NIV).
