From the Pastor's Pen...


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The summer is now coming to a close and a new season of Sunday school, Bible study, and celebrations is upon us. Though the weather will soon begin to cool, let our hearts be warmed with joy. Life as the children of God in this world is one of rest in his grace and love while simultaneously laboring in that very love doing Kingdom work. The Spirit is always at work in this world through us to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord, though it is not always clear where the Spirit will take us in that labor. Sometimes it is reminiscent of things old, already passed, and sometimes he works amongst us in ways that he never has before.
 

In a letter to the Christians of the city of Corinth, St. Paul writes: “Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain” (1 Corinthians 15:57-58). Christ gave his life for us and was raised again. His sacrifice was not in vain, but rather it brought about fruit, the very renewal and transformation of the world. As he sends us out, we don’t know how that will look or where we might find ourselves. No matter the situation, we trust in him, confident in what he has already accomplished for us. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

May the love our Lord abound in you all the more,


Pastor Alec
