I am scuttling to get out of town and turn myself to Kansas Pastor’s school.  We have two great teachers, Dr. Cynthia Rigby and Dr. Marva Dawn.  It should be an enriching week.  

We received Carrie McElfresh into membership by reaffirmation of Faith on Sunday, and delighted in baptizing her daughters.  In the process we all placed our hands on our heads and reaffirmed, (like Martin Luther)  “I am baptized.”  To be baptized is to know yourself as a beloved child of God. It is to hear the heavenly whisper; With you I am well pleased!  It is to be enrolled as one learning to follow Jesus.  What a great calling!

Upper Room sent me this verse this morning.  I can think of no better leading for the week.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people.”  (Galatians 6:9-10)   

Stay warm you all!

Pat

    epiphanyThose who braved the weather yesterday to come together in worship were amply blessed.  Christian Dashiell, preaching on Ephesians 1:3-14, talked about being “Adopted into God’s Family.”  With Ellie in our midst, Christian spoke of how the trajectory of her life that was destined to death was radically changed by forces of which she had no knowledge or understanding.  
    It was powerful stuff, and a dramatic reminder that none of us, even as adults, has any real understanding of all the factors that are moving to affect our lives.  The Good News, of course, is that we don’t have to understand.   We simply need to trust that God is working in everything to bring about good!
