Living in Hope

Dear Friends,
 
    Whe  life is challenging or painful, it is easy to feel like the future has been narrowed or, in some cases, closed off. ("Who will roll away the stone?")  However, the empty tomb reminds us  that what seems impossible for us is not impossible for God.  So if you find yourself frustrated right now by your personal or professional life, I challenge you to trust that God may be preparing new directions and new possibilities that we have not even thought of or imagined as we go through the busyness of our daily lives.  This past Sunday, our assigned Gospel reading reminded us of God's tendency to barge into our lives unexpectedly and uninvited to challenge our doubts and fears.  This upcoming Sunday in worship, we will be reminded that God is often a catalyst for change in some pretty unpredictable and unexpected ways.  Continue to pray for each other, the mission of St. Andrew's, and the communities we serve.  May we discover new blessings in our lives and the opportunities to extend those blessings to others.  Christ is risen!  He is risen indeed!  See you in church.
 
Peace,
 
Pastor

Lord's Prayer

Dear Friends,

This Sunday in worship our Gospel lesson is Luke 11:1-13.  In my message, I will be focusing chiefly on this rather strange parable of Jesus.  However, this is also the text where on e of Jesus' disciples says, "Lord, teach us to pray" and Jesus introduces what would become known as the Lord's Prayer.  While this will not be a primary focus on Sunday, I thought I would share with you below a reflection by Christian writer Brian McClaren bringing fresh meaning to a prayer that has become so familiar that, unfortunately, it can become rote and uttered with little meaning or reflection.  I hope that you will find this helpful for your own time in prayer.  And who knows?  It may even show up sometime in a worship service.
A Spoken Version of the Lord’s Prayer
This rendering of the Lord’s prayer uses unfamiliar words and phrasing to help us actually hear its message rather than lapsing into an auto-pilot recitation. You can use it in public worship by having …

Christmas Cantata this weekend

A word of thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes on this year's Advent Family Night.  What a wonderful evening for God's children of all ages.  A special thank you to our Director of Christian Education, Mrs. Janice Stickley, and members of our Christian Education for coordinating this event.

Change of Plans

Dear Friends,

Perhaps you are facing a season of change in your life.  Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has made everything "suitable for it's time."  That is to say that God has designed our lives into seasons, but there is a time limit on each one.  Some seasons are wide open doors for our passions and calling and some seasons are closed doors when God calls us to grow professionally, spiritually, or emotionally.  Some seasons are open doors where the changes are obvious: changes in employment, residence, or family life,   Some seasons are closed  doors where change is very subtle as we are challenged to look beneath the surface as we see changes in relationships, perspectives, attitudes, spiritual practices, and better self care.

If you are in an open door season of your life, may God give you the strength, flexibility, and patience to navigate the challenging changes ahead.  If you feel like you are in a closed door season, may you have wisdom and discernment to kno…
