Ecclesiastes Lesson 5

Welcome

If you keep making the same mistakes or find that no matter how much you try new things you end up with the same result.  Then you’re probably human and part of life that sometimes moves on beyond our control. What if you could write a book to yourself? What would it say? What advice would you give? There’s no better model for this than the Book of Ecclesiastes- We’ll be enriched by the study of it.

The “look” of Evangelism

We’re going into day 3 of our Virtual Bible Camp, and I have no idea how it’s going. You usually get a feel for that when you stand in a sea of 40 high energy kids. You can sense when the kids are getting a little bored, or when you have to cut the project short. Doing this virtually, you really can’t see anything. The web-pages are cooperating (kinda) and the lessons are loaded, but are subject to a kids or parent’s discretion of whether it’s worth watching the whole thing.
 
You just can’t SEE what’s happening. And that’s what we really like- we like to see the fruits of our labor. If I were an engineer building a rocket for NASA, I would want to see that rocket fly into space. There’s assurance in it. There’s valuable feedback in it. You get to see if it works and how well it works.
 
But, evangelism today… Read more…


Getting back to “Normal”

 

This is the big question- “When will we get back to normal?”  *Cue the nervous laughter. At this point it’s so speculative! We (and even cities) have tried to put a date on returning to what we expect is our regular way of living, but it keeps changing. Usually we can gauge when we get back to “normal” because it happens in the normal patterns of life. We get busy and then the busyness subsides.  When it’s the busy season at work, or playoff/band season for the kids, or vacation season where you are hosting guest or parties …  We have a good sense that our additional business is “abnormal” and will once again return to the normal ebb and flow of our everyday patterns. For the most cases we can tell when that will happen. But right now? It can make you go crazy just not knowing.

 

What isn’t normal

Where do we go from here?

I’m staring at a calendar right now, and I don’t know what to put in it. Do you know what you want to put in yours? I feel a little hesitant because I did have lots of dates in there before- things like the crawfish boil, clean up day, Vacation Bible School… I had my own vacation in there and festivals Erin and I were excited to attend, but it was like a puddle in the hot New Orleans sun- it just vanished.  If you thought planning far in advance was hard before, welcome to 2020, where planning a month in advance is as certain as working pumps in New Orleans. 

I know what I want to put in the calendar- the dates and events of everything we will be doing as a congregation in the next six months, but putting them in means something different nowadays. Read more…



Serving our Church

WELCOME

How we participate in our church calling has the potential to impact every aspect of our life. It nourishes our spirit for joyful service in all our vocations. We begin our week refreshed in our worship and energized for the days of service ahead.

The Big Picture

“Is there any common ground?” It seems like this has been said repeatedly, but it seems our world is more divided than ever. Whether it’s political parties that can’t agree on the best way to address the needs of the nation or even religious organizations that attack each other in an endless battle. Post comments tend to wind off into endless treads debating whose point of view is right or not. There’s tension, politically, spiritually, and relationally. Living in it all ends up getting tiring. How many rebuttal videos are too many? How many news articles and blogs are enough to come to the right position?  When will we get to a point where comments start saying something like, “Your point is valid. Perhaps I was wrong.” 

There’s validity to standing up for what you believe, especially if it’s Biblical truths, but as time goes on sometimes it feels like the hemming and hawing are fruitless. Some have pre-decided the point they want to nail down and are determined to defend it to the end.  It seems like the argument over who is right gets so caught up in making sure that other people do what’s  right that we can end up missing the bigger picture… Read more…
