For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:8
I am putting together the slideshow for Sunday’s Rector’s Forum and keep having to create new slides!
The program year is beginning and there are so many great things happening at The Falls Church. Ministries and fellowship opportunities that had taken a break during the summer are coming back. Formation for all ages begins again. We resume a two-service Sunday schedule, returning to the historic church for one of those, and opportunities for liturgical service increase two-fold. Sonya Subbayya Sutton returns from Chautauqua as Director of Music, the Parish Choir starts rehearsing again tonight, and the excitement behind Little City Concerts keeps building. Polly Colwell begins her tenure as Head of Day School, where teachers began meetings this week, and the children come back on Monday. With so much more happening, this is only the short list!
The excitement is palpable. There is a buzz here at The Falls Church, and the energy is contagious.
In all, I hope that we find in these ministries and activities the opportunity to go deeper, to seek out God, and to listen to the Spirit that is alive in this place. Amidst the amazing array of ways to connect at The Falls Church, I pray that we seek out spiritual sustenance, not merely busy-ness, and tend to the hunger for God’s wisdom and God’s grace. I hope, both, that we come to know Jesus in our neighbor and in our heart, and that we experience first-hand the love that knows no bounds.
So, join us this Sunday as the new program year begins and experience for yourself this amazing community of faith we know as The Falls Church.
