I want to begin this article by thanking our music leaders for two memorable services on Sunday. Both Jessica and Susan did a first-rate job in helping conclude the sermon with their individual adaptations of the old gospel song, "Where Could I Go but to the Lord." Watching many of you sing along with them was inspiring to me. Where do you go when life seems to be overwhelming in its difficulty? I shall not soon forget the way we all sang that chorus together. Thanks to each of you for a splendid time of worship.
This Sunday we will gather around the Lord's table as we remember the Last Supper in our observance of the Lord's Supper or communion. As we do we will consider this thought: "How would I respond if I was betrayed." For some of us that question may not have much pertinence. For others it will be most real because someone at sometime has betrayed us. Jesus acted in a most unusual fashion when he was betrayed. I believe we can all learn from how Jesus responded at the Last Supper.
I hope you are praying for our Visioning team. They will soon begin the task of looking at the data from your dreams for our church. These are important times of discernment for our congregation. We will be getting back to you soon. In the meantime, join me in praying daily for this process.
I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we gather at the Lord's table,
