Sometimes when we look at all the things we want to accomplish in the world, it seems like we don’t have nearly enough resources to get them all done. If we allow ourselves to look up from our own lives and our own little corners of the world—to see what’s going on in the broader context of our country and planet—then the sense of being overwhelmed gets even greater, doesn’t it?
When we come to situations where we are at the end of our own resources, we have an opportunity to rely on something beyond our own selves. As we enter into a month when we talk about stewardship for the year to come, I hope our whole SVPC community can think about the resources we have as people of faith. How are we all being called into our future by a God who is faithful to us, and who calls us to be faithful in return?
I hope you will join us in worship as we reflect on God’s gracious faithfulness to us—especially in hard times – and as we consider how we will respond to God.
P.S. This Sunday is our monthly Turning the Tables on Hunger Food Drive. Suggested items to donate include canned meat, vegetables, fruit, pasta, soup, peanut butter, rice, beans, powdered milk, and cereal. Please do not bring glass containers. As we come to the Lord’s table for communion, let us reach out and provide food for members of our community who are hungry.
