This weekend (Memorial Day weekend) we will begin a summer-long series through Paul's letter to the Church in Rome. It begins and ends with Paul's labor and God's ability "to bring about the "obedience of
faith"...and we, the "hearers", should take note (Romans 1:5; 16:26).
The objective of this letter apparently is to do just that...to nurture "the obedience of faith" in those who "hear" it. It is my prayer as we enter into these summer months that just as our gardens and fields grow to maturity in order to reproduce a harvest, that our
faith may also grow in maturity and that we, too, may see a harvest.
A harvest of righteousness...where God's righteousness in our lives individually and in our church corporately brings good news to one another and to our neighbors and neighborhoods. Please prepare for worship this Memorial Day weekend, by remembering the grace and peace that God has lavished upon us through our Lord Jesus Christ! I hope to see you all Saturday at the Big White House or Sunday at the River.
God's grace and peace to you all,
