February 2019

Dearest Friends in Christ, 

            In worship for the weeks of February, we will be thinking about the dreams that we have for our community, our nation and our world, with a focus on the creativity that brings our dreams to life and gives them momentum.  What is God’s dream for God’s creation that we can make a reality?  This may seem like a huge topic and something that we cannot hope to make a reality, but God invites us to try – to dream, to have a vision, and to strive to make that vision happen.

            Too often, we operate from the model of scarcity – we are too small, too poor, too afraid to even begin to dream.  Truthfully, not all dreams become a reality, and some dreams change as the process of envisioning and achieving unfold.  That should not stop us from dreaming, from seeking the image of God in the world that surrounds us, or from working diligently together to bring our dreams to life.  God’s invitation is that we are called to try and to put fear aside and trust that the Holy Spirit will guide us if we can surrender to that guidance.

            The time to dream, create and trust is now.  What will we choose to build together? 

                        Blessings and peace,

                        Pastor Gail
