Advent

AND so we begin again,

Advent begins a new liturgical year.  I look back over the past year's faith journey and I find there are things that I have done that excite me while there are other things I know I could have done better. Advent leads me to the stable once again where there can be birth, re-birth and renewal.  For me it provides, as Bishop Fisher used to pray...strength for the journey.  It is that strength of faith that I pray will take me through the familiar paths of life ... into lent and celebration of Easter, as well as Pentecost and other times feasts of the Christian year.  And I travel some of the way with all of my brothers and sisters in Christ here at this place and time we call Church.  It is where we meet Christ in each other and celebrate resurrection and life.  It is where we pray with and for each other and expect the miracles of love and grace to heal all kind of wounds.

It is time to begin our journey again.  It is unlike any New Year's resolution to try to do something better, this is a celebration inviting the Christ to go with you - us.  And so let's be ready to start again making sure we take the Spirit of Christ with us knowing that if we do we will reflect grace, forgiveness and unconditional love.

Peace,

David

Luke 10 People

Luke 10 People

10After this the Lord appointed seventy others and sent them on ahead of him in pairs to every town and place where he himself intended to go. 2He said to them, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go on your way. See, I am sending you out like lambs into the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and greet no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house!” 6And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you. 7Remain in the same house, eating and drinking whatever they provide, for the laborer deserves to be paid. Do not move about from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and its people welcome you, eat what is set before you; 9cure the sick who are there, and say to them, “The kingdom of God has come near to you.” 10But whenever you enter a town and they do not welcome you, go out into its streets and say, 11“Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off in protest against you. Yet know this: the kingdom of God has come near.” 12I tell you, on that day it will be more tolerable for Sodom than for that town.

17 The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, in your name even the demons submit to us!’ 18He said to them, ‘I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. 19See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. 20Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.’

Luke 10 describes discipleship – Jesus’ way.  I think that we are called to be Luke 10 people who give themselves to the calling of God.  And rather than creating ministry for people. the great experiment of this church is to respond to a call to ministry.  To that end, I invite you, in twos to be in ministry and the first one I lift up is the call to Hospitality.  I would like you to pray about and consider accepting a ministry for two months and these are the opportunities:

The Discipleship of Greeting and Invitation:  Be the welcoming presence to others as they walk through our doors.

The Discipleship of Caring:  Host, organize and provide a reception for Celebrations, Memorials and Funeral Services.

For use in printed publications, Right-Click on the filename below to download and choose "Save Target As" or "Save Link As"The Discipleship of Church Fellowship: Host, organize and provide for “coffee hour.”

I’m sure there will be more to come.  But remember, the difference between a volunteer and a Disciple is that the Disciple is called by Christ to serve in mission.

Peace, David
