Dear Faith Family -
One of my favorite gifts as a child is one that I rarely like to talk about in public. It was a Christmas present I got when I was 6 years old. It came in a package that looked like underwear, but it was so much more than what it appeared! They were Superman Underoos! They came with nice red briefs, a blue shirt with a yellow and red “S” on the chest, and a spectacular red cape!
I can remember running around with my arm stretched out and my head turned to makes sure the cape was flapping in the wind! I’d jump off the couch and ask my Mom to tell me if it looked like I was flying. In those days, I was fully alive and filled with wonder!
I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point - I lost my wonder. I stopped wanting to fly or put on the cape. I guess we can all be thankful for that! We probably don’t need a preacher running around in Underoos and a red cape!
But - I’ve been thinking lately…. Is it possible for us to lose our wonder of God? Is it possible to look into the stars and yawn? Is it possible to stop listening for the voice of God, stop chasing the heart of God, or stop seeing the hand of God in ordinary days? Is it possible that we have tamed Jesus to fit in our own box? And if so…. How do we regain our wonder and see Jesus clearly?
Well, this Sunday, we are going to be starting a brand new sermon series on the Gospel of Mark. Our goal will be to see Jesus clearly. I’m asking the Father to fill us with wonder and to renew our hearts!
Also, don’t forget that this Sunday we are relaunching our Sunday mornings with Sunday School for all ages at 9:30 AM and worship at 10:45 AM. For more details and to sign up, check out the article below!
I can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
