New Year, New Theme
As you could probably tell, our theme for this church school year is Diving In. The following song by Steven Curtis Chapman was my inspiration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qTXLEpS1gg
I think that this song is a great metaphor for the an engaged, heart-fulled, enthusiastic approach to our journey. I want to encourage all of us *not* to sit on the sidelines- even though it might be more familiar, comfortable, and safe. We need to go "all in" and be washed in God's amazing grace and boundless love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. (John 15:11)
Think about what it will mean for you to "dive in" this year. We all have talents and gifts and using them with joy is part of this process.
For me- one of my goals for this coming year will be to be faithful in publishing a blog entry once a month. Also, I want to continue to look for ways that we can experience real and deep connections to Christ and to each other.
I'd like to take this moment to promote our new Christian Education website http://presbville.weebly.com . It is still a work in progress, but hopefully it can provide some resources and support. Additionally, our "Let's Get Together" page- will feature our upcoming events! September is up- stay tuned for October!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. (Romans 15:13)
