Created to Create
September 6, 2022
God created humanity in God’s own image,
in the divine image God created them,
male and female God created them.
This Sunday we will gather for a good old fashioned gathering day, complete with root beer floats! I hope you’re as excited as I am. Our these for this year is Created to Create. We will remember that we are made in the image of God, the creator. Like our creator, we are hard-wired to make new connections, bring order and beauty to chaos, and to evolve.
Gathering day is always a moment of creation. It is a fresh start and an opportunity to create the year we would like to have. What will we create together this year? I pray that we will create relationships built on love and mutuality. I pray we will create music and art in our worship that inspires us to follow the way of Jesus more faithfully. I pray we will create a culture of learning and challenge for all ages, so that all may grow here. I pray we create a community that is ready to welcome and include the poor and oppressed. I pray we create an inter-generational community where children and elders learn from each other about what it means to follow in the way of Jesus.
I am delighted to be creating with you all again this year.
On Sunday, the check-in table for church school will open at 9:15. Worship will be at 11:00. After worship, we will celebrate with root beer floats and join in creating some art together! See you there.
