Thoughts for the Journey

Who are you? A beloved child of God. Who am I? A beloved child of God. Who are we? beloved

children of God! Baptism of the Lord Sunday celebrate not only God’s beloved child Jesus, but all

who are named and claimed as God’s honored and beloved children. Remember your baptism today

as an invitation of gracious love and a call to discipleship. It is a call to ministry of peace and

justice, healing and reconciliation, and doing good in the name of Jesus Christ. In the New Year

Lord, help us to listen for your voice and pour our your Living Water of pure Love into the world.

In Boundless Love of Christ,     Pastor Lenore


Thoughts for the Journey

Epiphany is a celebration of “the true light which enlightens everyone” (John 1.9). It is the

revealing of Christ as the promise of God’s love for all nations. The Magi, pagan foreigners,

risked following the star from the heavens to Bethlehem. In the manger, they found God’s light

and love, in Emmanuel, “God with us”, and worshiped him. Today’s scripture readings are a promise

of light to those who live in darkness;  a promise of righteousness to those who suffer at the hands of

others; a promise of grace to those who are lost. My prayer is that as a community of faith, we have an

epiphany of the true meaning of Christ in our lives. As we begin a new year, may we risk to fallow

the star and fallow the light of God’s wisdom, to build God’s reign on “earth as it is in heaven.”

Thoughts for the Journey

God is with us, yearning to be at the center of our worship and our lives. From ancient

conversations with Isaiah, to the Spirit’s in-breaking into Mary’s young life, to the modern

celebration of Christmas, God is in our midst. As we make the final preparations for ADVENTure,

how can we be a community of faith who not only loves God and others as ourselves, but a

household of faith that works for justice in the world? Will we allow the same Spirit that broke

into Mary’s life, break into ours? Will we carry God’s love aboard within our hearts that our

lives shout out the Good News of Jesus Christ? In our travels will we see the opportunities

God provides to be the midwives of God’s reign on earth? In the blessing of this Advent season,

be in prayer for God’s direction for each of us and ALL of us.

ALL Aboard – Final Call!

In God’s Boundless Love,  Pastor Lenore
