Our church opens its doors...

When our three children were very young, my wife and I noticed something whenever we would take the kids to visit various relative’s homes.  We noticed that our children liked the relatives that really liked them.  Our kids knew it almost instinctively when they were treasured or tolerated by an uncle or aunt.  They knew when the relatives enjoyed their presence or quickly gravitated to adult conversation.  When unfiltered responses to the children involved lots of enthusiasm and affection, lots of curiosity about our children’s lives, spontaneous observations that were expressed about positive changes that they saw—“My, how tall you are getting,” special treats and sometimes, thoughtful little gifts handed to them, these were tangible signs to the kids that they were loved and cherished.

What’s the big deal in telling you this?  It’s probably something you already know.  The big deal is that God really likes you!  A lot of people don’t know this, or believe it.  The closer we get to know God, the better we can see that we are deeply loved and appreciated and affirmed. 

This is where the text I’m preaching on from 2 Corinthians leads me to go with the message on Sunday.  Come to our regularly scheduled two worship services (9AM or 11:15 AM –with an education hour in between).  This Sunday is world communion.  I suppose we all need some sanity, comfort, and healing after grappling with another round of horrific school violence and national tragedy this week.   Come to find God’s affirmation, centering, and hope.  Pastor Larry
