Son Shine

As we wrap up our sermon series on Weathering the Storms of Life, we find that God’s light shines on us, in us, and through us! Therefore, you could say that we’re like prisms – we reflect the Light, but we are not the Light. And without the Light we’re just a piece of glass.

We ought to reflect the best and the brightest because God has put His best and brightest in us. God has given us wisdom, knowledge, compassion, love, grace, and mercy. And to top it all off, the best of God is in you, Jesus Christ, our Son Shine! So, we have a responsibility. Just as the prism reflects light, we are to reflect the Light of Christ in the world.

God’s Light shines ON us, illuminating our path…

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Psalm 119:105

The Light shines IN us, giving us revelation…

Jesus said “I am the Light of the world. Those who follow me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life”

John 8:12

And with that much Light shining ON us and IN us, it can’t help but shine THRU us. That’s radiation! Radiating thru us out into the world. That’s why the songwriter wrote: This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine! Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Join me this Sunday at 10:00am, either in the Prayer/Praise Garden (weather permitting) or online. Our Reopening Team has set a tentative date of November 1 for limited indoor worship. Stay tuned because this date is very tentative. Nov. 1 is also All Saints Day and the UMW Candle Burning Celebration!

Blessings,

Pastor Linda

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite holidays. There’s not much expectation – no gifts to bring, no cards to send (although I thank you for the ones I’ve received!), and no expectation of dressing

A LEGACY OF GIVING

Let the giving begin! Or should I say let it continue. Something happens in November. People turn their minds toward giving. Some folks even get a little nicer – some! It’s amazing how our mood subtly

Veterans Sunday

I had the honor of visiting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier a few years ago. It was an awe-inspiring moment. The solemnity, the austere way in which this tomb holding the bodies of men and women who s
