Quite honestly, I’m having a hard time preparing for this Sunday. That’s because I’m really excited about the retreat the following weekend. At the retreat, we’ll be focusing on clarifying God’s calling, both for ourselves and others. But there is something so vitally important that must precede responding to God’s call – and that’s what will be looking at this Sunday.
We were created for life in God’s Kingdom, and God graciously works through us to invite others into that life. But what will life in God’s Kingdom like? Following Jesus means we get a taste of it here and now, but it is not yet fully realized. And it’s mixed with the often bitter reality of life here. But what helps us to fix our hope on Christ? That’s what we’ll be working on.
This Sunday, we will gather for worship in the St. Johns Room at Faith Community Church at 6:45 pm. Come and be encouraged and equipped for life on mission.
Now, about the retreat…
We’ll be heading back up to the ECO Lodge in (fabulous) Fargo, Georgia Feb 15-17. The retreat is already payed for, but most of the slots are filled. We all pitch in to bring food and everyone is involved in food prep and clean up. (Think extended family.) Let me know soon if you’d like to join us.
