Sunday we begin a new 5 week message series on foundational understandings of our being created for relationships. Every year, I engage a 4-5 week series on Worldview. More relevant than ever, a Biblical Worldview is necessary for believers to engage, as there are many other worldview presented to us on a daily basis. Relationship is at the center of what it means to be a human being, created in God’s image. We have been created by God for relationship in every aspect of our lives: with God, with one another, and with God’s created world. To know this truth and to live in this reality, every moment of every day, is truly living life as we have been created for.
This 5 week series, we will experience a different order of worship where we open with a brief gathering time, something simple to focus our attention on God, and then we will have the message, much earlier in the service than is usual. This will give us ample time for reflection and response to the message where we will engage in conversation with God through prayer and song. Whether you are getting bored or I’m getting bored, I think the rearranging of our worship experience could bring about some good outcomes for our worship time together – let’s get on board.
If you are able this week (and I think you are), read Genesis 1 & 2, as well as Psalm 139 (the Psalm of the Week for the Read Through the Bible readings), and reflect on these two questions, “How well does God, the One who created me, know me?” and “What is the purpose for why God created me?”
See you Sunday,
