We would love to see you at worship. Please note that we are asking everyone attending the service to wear a mask. If you are not able to come to church, you are still able to "gather together" with friends, church family, and neighbors through the power of technology. If you miss the 10:30 am live service, you can still view the recording at a later time. The sermon will remain on our YouTube channel and will be posted on our website on Monday morning.
ARE YOU FINE WITH BEING REFINED - Malachi 3:1-4 - December 5
THIS IS THE SECOND SUNDAY OF ADVENT - and also Communion Sunday. Bring non-perishable food items for Loaves and Fishes.
In order to learn, we have to allow ourselves to be taught. In order to be taught, we have to admit that someone else might have something to teach us. God wants to teach us, but we have to be willing participants.
I had a teacher in High School whom I, quite honestly, despised. I ended up dropping her class after I had been in there for most of the year. Once I was in college, I recognized that she had given us excellent advice. She had emphasized reading with comprehension and understanding. She had told us how important it was to write with clarity. I didn’t want to learn from her, but I benefited from her teaching in spite of myself.
Malachi the prophet foretold the coming of a messenger (Christians believe it was John the Baptist) who would act as a “refiner” for God’s people. God is in the process of refining us constantly. Hopefully we will be open to the process.
Blessings, Pastor Tom
