Pastor's Word for January 2022
"I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
and rivers in the desert."
-- Isaiah 43:19
In Isaiah, God speaks to the people, bringing them hope and comfort. They have been through a lot, but God reminds them through the prophet Isaiah that God will still take care of them! God paints a picture of gathering his people from the ends of the earth, and God tells them not to fear. Though they may be walking in the wilderness, God is with them. God makes a way for them. God loves them.
In this time of transition after the long tenure of Pastor Brent, you may feel a little like you are in the wilderness. Maybe you wonder where God is in all of this, or maybe you have some fear. I encourage you to read Isaiah 43, and to put your faith in God. New things can bring fear and anxiety but time spent in study of scripture and in prayer can bring us peace and comfort.
In the New Year, there will be some time in the wilderness here at Trinity, as you discern where God is calling you, and who God is calling to be your next pastor. But take heart that no matter what comes, God is with you. As we begin the MET Process (Mission Exploration Team), keep praying for Trinity. I will share updates often, and please don't hesitate to come to me with questions, thoughts, or any concerns.
God is doing a new thing! May our eyes be open and watchful so that we see God working here among us!
Peace and Blessings,
