I’m glad to be sharing something very familiar with you this Sunday—something at the heart of Christian conviction that may be only partially understood, and yet has the power to revitalize our faith and action. Over and over you’ve heard “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
What possibly new and transforming could be mined from that?
Let’s see. Especially when we are living in a time of international mistrust and killing, in the “divided states of America,” in the tension of many questions that throw shadows over our future, and in our hopes for a better way, can our faith re-focus on what is truly important and life-giving?
I look forward to seeing you at 7:50 a.m., 10 a.m. or 5 p.m. for worship. But remember: Daylight saving time begins this Sunday. Set your clocks ahead one hour Saturday evening, or we’ll see you arriving as we leave the service!
