Youth is back March on March 24

Can you believe it's been a year since we suspended youth gatherings?

It has been a year of change and trying things out and we are continuing to try things out next week with the return of youth.

Check the video below for more details and mark your calendars to join us.

"An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge."
Proverbs 18:15

There has been much to #learn this year, no matter your age or job. For our students, they are learning to learn in new ways as those who teach are having to learn new ways to do their job.

A friend recently remarked "A day where you don't learn anything is a day wasted." I think there have been few wasted days for most of us. Learning is growth, and we should seek to grow in all areas of our life. As we continue to serve and be loved by a God who chose to come and be with us, let our hearts acquire and ears seek knowledge.

2020 has been crazy! Help us plan 2021

https://www.stjamesdallas.org/pledge/
2020 was quite the unexpected year. Though we can't say for certain what 2021 will hold, we are still planning to continue the work that St. James has been doing in the Lake Highlands community for the last 64 years.

You can help with that planning by submitting a pledge for the 2021 Stewardship drive. Pledge cards can be picked up at one of our Sunday Services or at the church office during the week.

You can also complete a pledge card online by visiting
https://www.stjamesdallas.org/pledge/

Join us as we continue to Worship, Study, Serve, Praise, Rejoice, Fellowship, Teach, and Give...together.

Baptism is an action, not just for what has been done or what is happening in the moment, but a promise on how we will act in the future.

In our Baptismal covenant we make five promises committing our actions to doing several different things. Do you remember the promises of your baptismal covenant?

Take a few minutes today reading through the covenant (https://episcopalchurch.org/baptismal-covenant), think about today's #adventword, and get active living those out!

In the beginning God spoke and that which was never before suddenly was. The Creation stories illustrate not only the power of God but the power of words themselves. In the first creation narrative there are three actions that God does. Speak, Look, and Rest. It is in the speaking that the work is done.

Though the second creation narrative tells of a God who forms and plants and grows, the power of the first in in the Word.

The Gospel of John echos this pattern and identifies Jesus as the Word of God that shines light into darkness just as verse three of Genesis 1 tells us god did.

Throughout scripture we are reminded of the power of our own words. They have power to create and destroy. They reveal the nature of our heart, and they are one way we lift honor and praise to God.

For today's #adventword let us remember the importance and power of our words, and use them to build.

12/06/2020

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." Luke 2:12-13

when the heavens opened up and a great company joined together the glory of the event was not for themselves.

Before healing a blind man when the disciples asked whose sin was responsible for his disability Jesus taught them that it was about fault, but it happened so that God would receive glory. (John 9)

in the business of this season, let's not get distracted by the marvelous sights, or divided over petty arguments, but remember that God is to be glorified in all situations.

“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name eImmanuel” (which means, God with us). Matthew 1:23

The act of fellowship is about being together, with a common purpose. This is modeled for us at the incarnation and we are called to continue to do so together.

In the midst of a global pandemic we have seen many people rally together around a common purpose. We have seen protests that call for change. We have seen new expressions of the church that help facilitate gatherings. Zoom has become as common a word as google.

We also see plenty of division in our world. Though neither of these cases of unity or division are unique in this time of pandemic, they are somewhat amplified, and the need for fellowship is made even more clear.

At a time where the usual ways of being together are not always possible, we need to remember the importance and work towards this fellowship still.

When God came to be with us it was not because we had everything figured out. But he joined us still.

In that same spirit, we can work to make things new by recognizing the image of God in all people, and finding a place of fellowship around that commonality.

Usually, when it is time to rebuild something, it is because there is a problem with what exists already.

A storm rolled through and the wind took the roof off your house.

A new driver lost focus on what they were doing and found your mailbox with the front end of their car.

You lost your temper the words that followed strained the relationship with a friend.

Whatever the cause of the problem is, acknowledging that the problem is real is a necessary step before the work of rebuilding can begin.

2 Corinthians 5:18 speaks to the work of making things new again. "All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation."

Jesus came to bring reconciliation to us, and to call us to the work of reconciliation. Of restoration not by salvaging what was, but by creating something new.

How can you participate in the work of making things new again?

"For those who have seen the Earth from space, and for the hundreds and perhaps thousands more who will, the experience most certainly changes your perspective. The things that we share in our world are far more valuable than those which divide us."
-Astronaut Donald E. Williams

#adventword

From this perspective the things that we argue about, that wars are fought, and any sense of power that we may feel is put in its proper place.

The prophet Isaiah reminds us of this perspective when he asks "To whom can you compare God?"

His response includes "Do you not know? Do you not hear?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?
It is he who sits above the circle of the earth,
and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers;
who stretches out the heavens like a curtain,
and spreads them like a tent to dwell in;
who brings princes to nothing,
and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness." (Isaiah 40)

There is something to be said about a God with that perspective and power who chooses to come and live as a part of creation.

As we think about todays #adventword let's put the problems of this world in perspective, and remember the God who sits above the circle of the earth chose to come and be with us. Let's be mindful of the presence of God in the here and now, as we prepare to remember the incarnation.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

#adventword

What a great reminder of the strength that we have in community. As we remember Advent today let us remember that this strength is greater than just the sum of parts. Paul said we, together, make up the body of Christ (1 Cor. 12). When two or three are gathered Christ is here, and our strength, ultimately comes from God, which we experience in community with others.

Community mid-pandemic is not easy, but it is necessary. As you meditate on the word strengthen think of someone in your community that you can reach out to. Who do you need to reconnect with today?

The Psalmist said "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity" Be strengthened by the community today.

With the ongoing pandemic more people are shopping online, especially on today’s cyber Monday “holiday”.

To fulfill these orders our delivery people will be working overtime through the end of the year, even more so than they already have. A prayer for the safety and well being of those who deliver would be a great practice for today’s #adventword

As we anticipate and prepare to celebrate another delivery, the incarnation of God in the man Jesus, let’s remember the ways that God delivers and pray for those who deliver here on earth.
