Our mission is to make known the love of God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ through a loving and caring congregation that seeks to share its faith and commitment to Christ.
As the calendar turns to October, I find myself turning to a wonderful record by Dave Brubeck called Indian Summer. The music evokes the leaves as they fall from the trees and the cooling temperatures (I hope) that signal the approach of November and December, the “most wonderful time of the year.” This music provides just the accompaniment necessary to transition from summer into autumn. What music accompanies you through these changing days? I find jazz and classical piano works very soothing. For you it may be a good gospel album, perhaps country, maybe rock (It’s okay ya know!). As the world around us tosses and turns, as our own hearts toss and turn within, my prayer is that you will listen closely and hear the music all around us. The symphony of creation, the sonata of falling leaves, the silence in the rests, it’s all there. The rhythm of death and resurrection as our beautiful earth turns around the sun. It’s too much to take in. We are told that we serve and worship the “Firstborn over all creation.” He is the One “through whom ALL things were made and without him NOTHING was made.” We are graced with these seasons of life. May we in turn seek opportunities to spread that grace, love, and mercy to others! Thanks Be to God!
