From the Pastor's Pen...


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,


As Spring slowly turns to Summer we celebrate the yearly rejuvenation of God’s creation around us and are reminded of the warmth and sunshine which fosters life in this world. God created this world with the intention that it would produce all that we need, not only for us but also for our fellow creatures, with whom we share it. What sets humanity apart is that we are made in the image of God and are therefore tasked with the care for this creation, which in turn sustains us.
 

With our fall into sin, our own corruption, we have led the rest of creation into brokenness and disorder. The creation itself, which was meant to provide for us, now grinds us back into the dust from which we came.
 

Thankfully, our Lord Jesus Christ has come as the perfect image of God to rescue us. He has died, defeated death, and now reigns over heaven and earth that one day he might return to us to bring about the restoration of all creation. Though, in the brokenness of this world we are ground back down to the dust of the earth, at the return of Christ we will be raised up and will live forever with him in the New Creation.
 

As for now, let us consider our place in this world. Though it is broken, let us enjoy the goodness of God’s creation and embrace the fact that we are a part of it. By the power of the Holy Spirit let us praise the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to the glory of our Heavenly Father. Let us do so together with all creatures. Amen.

Have a blessed Summer!

In Christ,

Pastor Alec
