[06/18/20]   🔹 A Word from Pastor Tom - June 16 🔹

Some of you may have guessed, I’m a bit of a history buff. I enjoy learning and knowing history of people and places. History is one of those accessible ways we come to be familiar with what goes into making a person who they are, or forming a group of people’s perspective and ethos. History has a way of reminding us of what’s important to hold on to, and what’s important to discard.

There is a great deal of history that has taught us to discard the really horrible parts of what we have been capable of. Let me give a few examples...we would never think it appropriate to rape and pillage a country we won a victory over today. After World War II, the United States began the process of helping to put Europe and Japan back together, not exploiting the countries or the populace. That hasn’t always been true though. The continent of Africa has been exploited by Western countries for several centuries. Its people, its resources, its land, have been devoured by the Western dominant culture. History has shown us this is not the way we should act. When Europeans landed on the North American continent, they set about conquering and subduing the native population, taking the resources to enrich themselves. That’s how it had been done in times past. To the victor belong the spoils.

As followers of Jesus, we are taught to think and act differently. We are taught to treat strangers and vulnerable people with dignity, honor and love. In Deuteronomy 10: 17-19, we’re told “For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe, who executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and who loves the strangers, providing them food and clothing. You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”

Through our own history and through God’s Word to us, we know how we are to treat one another. It is time for us to live up to our potential, to learn from our shared history of grievous behavior toward the children of God, and to be the image of God who lives in us.

Today, on this day in history, June 17, 1885, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States arrived in New York. It was a tribute to two countries forged in the search for liberty and justice for all people. The time of the 1880’s was a turbulent time full of social unrest. It was in this time that the statue arrived and was erected. It was this symbol of freedom, and of welcome. One cannot read Emma Lazarus’ words emblazoned on this symbol without feeling the weight of history, and believing we should make history with how we treat one another.

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

Blessings and Peace,
Pastor Tom

Allowing the Scriptures to guide us day by day keeps our lives in line with knowing God and His will. The Bible is an amazing tool that, if followed, keeps us moving straight ahead.

Different forms of worship—informal, formal, quiet, exuberant—represent a sincere outpouring of love for Jesus. He’s worthy of all worship that comes from a heart of love.

Why do you think we’re critical of unfamiliar forms of worship? How can we change our thoughts about a form of worship that’s outside our comfort zone?

We are at a tipping point friends, we can each decide will we resist change and see our society crumble, or will we embrace changes that will benefit and serve everyone? When we care about the treatment others receive in our system, we also are supporting our own welfare. Do we remember the greatest two commandments Jesus cited? Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. The second one, Jesus says is to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
.
Our welfare is inextricably tied to the welfare of our neighbor. If we are going to survive, if we are going to thrive, it means we are all going to safeguard each other’s present and future.

We are Not Okay, But We Can Be

We are Not Okay, But We Can Be

From the first family of Adam and Eve came a community so that, whether married or single, old or young, none of us would be alone. As a community, God has given us the privilege of sharing each other’s burdens.

How is it helpful to know that no matter our marital status, as believers in Jesus we’re never alone? How have you seen the body of Christ in action?

God’s perspective from above is that life is for His glory and purpose—not ours. Our attention is to be given to Him and His plans and to pointing others to praise Him too. Having God’s glory as our own life’s perspective opens a whole new world.

How do you feel when someone wants to discuss matters of faith with you? With the help of God’s Holy Spirit, we can explain in simple terms what matters most in life—that “stuff” about God.

We must act, we must be a part of the solution. We must demand those in power act appropriately and with the same zealousness as if their own child had been murdered. We follow Jesus, and Jesus would call us to side with those who have no power, no advocate, no one to stand with them.
.
We are keepers my friends, keepers in charge of making sure that all persons are treated with dignity and respect, all the while being kept safe.
.
Genesis 4: 9, “Then the Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is Abel your brother?’ He said, ‘I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?’”
.
May we never again ask the question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” We are.

A Message From Tom Burt

A Message From Tom Burt

What’s Driving Us?

We can let fear drive us, but we don’t have to. Paul says in 2nd Timothy 1: 7 “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” We are ALL children of the Most High God, and its God who first spoke light into existence. Its God who spoke you and me, our sisters and brothers, into existence. Its God who planted within each of us the light. We must outshine the darkness and let God’s light shine for all.

May God give us the willingness to risk reaching out in love to help others. Who has Jesus put in your path that needs your help? How can you put your love into action today?

All Things Bright and Beautiful / Jesus Loves Me

All Things Bright and Beautiful - Courtney Stancil

If you want to know what God is like, look at Jesus. He tells his disciples that “anyone who has seen me has seen the Father.” His very essence and character were the same as His Father’s.
