September News

The Word in Season Devotional for August 25th:
One reason I love the psalms is that they are very human words and prayers to God, which have, in the course of time, been adopted as the word of God. In my mind, it confirms that God wants us to keep communicating in prayer even when we express negative feelings. God wants us to get them out. The book of Psalms is the ideal place to start when you want to pray but words fail you.
Too often we mistakenly think that we need to face and solve our troubles on our own. Psalm 119 is a celebration of God’s law. Clearly the psalmist saw great value in God’s word as a source of wisdom and comfort in time of need. It is a reminder that when we feel alone, we may always turn to the Bible as a place to find a connection to God.

Lord, stay near to those who feel alone, and make your presence known. Amen.

May News

Sharing May 1st’s devotion from Word in Season: John 14:12 Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these. In talking about the future, his death, resurrection, and ascension, Jesus promised Philip, along with the other disciples gathered with him around the supper table, participation in God’s loving, healing, and saving work. In the inviting and gathering, welcoming and giving of hospitality, the love of God will be made known to others, and countless lives will be forever changed. Jesus’ promise is for you, too! By God’s gift of grace through faith, you will be a part of God’s work of loving and blessing the world. The “greater works than these” of which Jesus speaks are the ways in which we love and care for others, and they are grateful and faithful responses to what God has first done for us. In listening to the concerns of a friend, in reaching out in friendship to another, in encouraging one who is heartbroken, we witness to God’s love in Christ. And Jesus’ promise of joining in God’s loving, healing, and saving work is fulfilled.

Come and see.
