Meeting people at their point of need, inviting all into a dynamic relationship with Christ

Dear Friends in Christ,

Who gets the last word at your house? The mom, the pop, the kids, the cat? It seems that everywhere from the board room to the classroom, to the traffic light at the corner you can rely on someone who’ll hurl one last word over the shoulder just as they’re passing out of range. Bam! Gotcha and I’m gone!

But this Sunday we get to consider that this ain’t always the case. (Yes I’m aware of my use of a contraction that is generally considered non–standard by dictionaries and style guides except when used for rhetorical effect!) The last word can actually be one of encouragement or affection.

Jesus says many things during his post resurrection presence. One of Jesus’ last words was to Peter — Peter the impetuous, the one who had jumped out of the boat to meet the risen Christ, but who also had denied his Lord in the hour of need. The words were instructional. They were specific. They were directed to Peter, but they are for us as well. “ Feed my sheep. Feed my Lambs. ”

This Sunday we will have many guests from the Second Presbyterian Kindergarten family. Families, friends, children singing, reading and delighting we who take great delight in them.

We will welcome a new member, baptize a son, enjoy the gospel choir, and dinner in the park! Why? Because we point to Jesus!

Here’s the invitation. Extend it — times like these we need to share!

With great joy in being your pastor —
