Pastor's Word for August 2022

Happy Summer, Everyone!

This time of year is full of good stuff -- vacations, flowers, warmth (sometimes there's too much of a good thing there, though!). Trips to the pool, the zoo, or going for walks in the evenings ... there's so much to do and to enjoy in summer. We wait so long for this time to come where we can play and relax and enjoy being outside. It makes me think of the wise prophet Ferris Bueller, who once said "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."

Life does move fast. We move from month to month, year to year, and sometimes it seems like it's just been the blink of an eye. Where does the time go, we wonder?

In the Bible there are two kinds of time: Chronos time and Kairos time. Chronos time is the time of the clock, ticking by minute by minute. It's where we get the term "chronological." Chronos time is measured time. It runs out. Kairos time is God's time. It's an ancient Greek term for when something special happens. It's those moments that seem to stand out for us, moments when God is moving and active.

It's easy to be swept away by all the busy-ness. Even when we're having fun, we forget to stop and look, to enjoy the moments that we wait so long for. It's my hope and prayer that you will feel God moving in your life this month. Stop and look at the beauty of this time of year. Say a prayer. In these long days of light, reflect on how Christ is the light of the world that no darkness can put out. As Jesus said, "Seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you" ... when we look for God, it becomes much easier to find God.

May God bless you and fill you with peace! See you in church!
