From the pastor....


It strikes me that we have entered a new era in the church. It seems to me that in the past there were events that were in stone in the church calendar, and that as the day approached the Session or some committee sat down to plan the event. That still happens with some things. However, now it is more the case the someone steps forward and says, "I want to do this, and I will line up people to do it."

Two great recent examples of this can be found in our church. Betty and Al Cardamoe stepped up, and said, "We want to do a pulled pork dinner as a fundraiser for the church." So we will be having a pulled pork dinner on May 6. Debbie Bliss has come forward to head up the Harvest Dinner. We have a Harvest Dinner scheduled for October 21.

The other thing I would say of these good works which Betty and Al and Debbie are involved is that they are great illustrations of the gift of hospitality with which our church is greatly endowed.

This is the gift which is so well expressed the post-Resurrection in Luke 24:
As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly. "Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over." So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight.
Cleopas and his friend share their hearth and home with Jesus, while Jesus is the host at the table.

] We are challenged by two questions.
What is God calling me to step up and do in my Church?
What are the ways I express the gift of hospitality in my life?
