"We are Disciples of Christ, a movement for wholeness in a fragmented world. As part of the one body of Christ, we welcome all to the Lord's Table as God has welcomed us."

As we prepare to head into the new week, how will you create wholeness where there is fragmentation?

AM I READY?

This past Monday, I returned to my classroom after one year away; I teach preschool- aged children in a child care center in a high school. We were given one day to leave for “2 weeks.” That meant we took our personal things and left the room “as is”. One year later, my fellow colleagues (and teachers in a lot of places) returned to old bulletin boards, children’s work on the walls, dirty laundry, and other reminders of when we had left in a hurry. In addition, the custodial staff had been busy in our room taking up the area carpets and waxing the floors, leaving the furniture and other supplies in chaos. Fortunately, we have had several days to prepare for the children’s return in April after spring break. I was reminded of Jesus saying in Luke 17:31: “On that day if anyone is on the roof while his belongings are in the house, he must not go down to fetch them; and if anyone is in the field, he must not turn back.”

Holy Week has come, reminding us of the joy and anticipation of Palm Sunday, followed by the days when Jesus was teaching and trying to prepare his disciples for what lay ahead. We can hear the urgency in his message: “Be on your guard; do not let your minds be dulled by dissipation and drunkenness and worldly cares so that the great day catches you suddenly.” Luke 21:34. Jesus knows that the end of his human life is coming soon; his disciples did not, though he tried to warn them. WE know the end/beginning of the story! But are we on our guard?

In March and April, I felt somewhat paralyzed by the fear of this horrible virus that was spreading throughout our world, our country, our state, our county! What could I do? I did not feel I should be out personally helping people face-to-face, but I could sew masks, give money to help feed and care for people, call people, send cards, etc. After a time, my class began meeting on zoom once a week, our church groups met on zoom, our choir members sang and recorded our parts to be joined “magically” (if you ask me), my husband and I hosted Bible Bingo on zoom, and we did some home projects. We wore our masks so we could go to the grocery store, take walks, go bike riding, and talk with friends from 6 or more feet away.

Did I use all my time wisely or productively? Goodness, no. I think I lost some of my gumption at times, but I am still going and have much to be grateful for in this year of living differently. I tell people I practiced retirement, but am not quite ready for the real thing!

Dear God, during this Holy Week, be with me as I ponder the miracle that is Easter and how I can be ready for my own Easter.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

From Disciples Women:
Monday Moment – January 18, 2021
January 17, 2021

Remember …..
“… and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8

“And one of the great liabilities of life is that all too many people find themselves living amid a great period of social change, and yet they fail to develop the new attitudes, the new mental responses, that the new situation demands.”
— Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The wisdom of these words spoken over fifty years ago resonates deeply today and this week. Our world has been called into doing things we’ve never had to do. But during it all, the love of Jesus Christ always comes through. We have also been reminded of the importance of the beloved community. This community that may be meeting virtually and not physically with each other. Yet the physical distance doesn’t mean that we are disconnected from each other. We have learned that social distancing doesn’t mean social disconnection.

Dr. King’s words are timeless and often apply to what we are presently experiencing. As we celebrate his life and legacy, remember his commitment to beloved community. Remember his commitment to justice. Remember his commitment to speaking on behalf of the marginalized and oppressed. Remember his courage to speak truth to power. His life was a prime example of advocating for justice, loving others and remaining connected to God.

Remember that living out Micah 6:8 is our call.

Blessings,
Rev. Sheila P Spencer

Something to think about...

Church is hard.

Church is hard for the person walking through the doors, afraid of judgement.

Church is hard for the pastor’s family, under the microscope of an entire body.

Church is hard for the prodigal soul returning home, broken and battered by the world.

Church is hard for the girl who looks like she has it all together, but doesn’t.

Church is hard for the couple who fought the entire ride to service.

Church is hard for the single mom, surrounded by couples holding hands, and seemingly perfect families.

Church is hard for the widow and widower with no invitation to lunch after service.

Church is hard for the deacon with an estranged child.

Church is hard for the person singing worship songs, overwhelmed by the weight of the lyrics.

Church is hard for the man insecure in his role as a leader.

Church is hard for the wife who longs to be led by a righteous man.

Church is hard for the nursery volunteer who desperately longs for a baby to love.

Church is hard for the single woman and single man, praying God brings them a mate.

Church is hard for the teenage girl, wearing a scarlet letter, ashamed of her mistakes.

Church is hard for the sinners.

Church is hard for me.

It’s hard because on the outside it all looks shiny and perfect. Sunday best in behavior and dress.

However, underneath those layers, you find a body of imperfect people, carnal souls, selfish motives.

But, here is the beauty of church—

Church isn’t a building, mentality, or expectation.

Church is a body.

Church is a group of sinners, saved by grace, living in fellowship as saints.

Church is a body of believers bound as brothers and sisters by an eternal love.

Church is a holy ground where sinners stand as equals before the Throne of Grace.

Church is a refuge for broken hearts and a training ground for mighty warriors.

Church is a converging of confrontation and invitation. Where sin is confronted and hearts are invited to seek restoration.

Church is a lesson in faith and trust.

Church is a bearer of burdens and a giver of hope.

Church is a family. A family coming together, setting aside differences, forgetting past mistakes, rejoicing in the smallest of victories.

Church, the body, and the circle of sinners-turned-saints, is where He resides, and if we ask, He is faithful to come.

So even on the hard days at church—

The days when I am at odds with a friend, When I’ve fought with my husband because we’re late once again. When I’ve walked in bearing burdens heavier than my heart can handle, yet masking the pain with a smile on my face. When I’ve worn a scarlet letter, under the microscope. When I’ve longed for a baby to hold, or fought tears as the lyrics were sung. When I’ve walked back in, afraid and broken, after walking away.

I’ll remember, He has never failed to meet me there.

A beautiful rendition to make your heart happy.

Wouldn't you know that a song originally written for children on Sesame Street (by composer Joe Reposo) would be the perfect antidote for what ails the adults of this country. As you watch, look at the smiles of hope and joy on the children in the video. Thanks to Craig Jessop and the American Festival Choir and Orchestra for asking me to arrange this piece.

And because you are children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!" So you are no longer a slave but a child, and if a child then also an heir, through God. - Galatians 4:4-7 NRSV

Monday Moment – November 9, 2020
November 8, 2020

A God Moment
Recently, I encountered the use of the phrase “that’s a God moment, or a God wink.” It’s used when something unexpected happens, something that causes your soul to pause, relax, to breathe and smile. For me, I say thank you Jesus, shout hallelujah, and if I’m in the right space, I do a little Holy dance.

Traveling last week on an open country highway, mph 70. I was going roughly 75-78ish with very few vehicles on the highway. I was cruising right along when I said loudly, (no one in the car but me); “slow down, you don’t have the money to pay for a speeding ticket!” About a mile ahead there sat a local law enforcement vehicle with radar aiming right at the oncoming traffic. I laughed, said thank you Jesus, and hallelujah. That was a God moment…. but what I like to call the Holy Spirit speaking, leading and guiding me. But what if I had not listened to the Spirit? We go through our daily lives missing out on God moments because we fail to listen and obey the Spirit.

We get depressed and down on ourselves, sick of everything happening around us; we want to stay in bed or in our pjs all day. The Spirit says, “get up take a shower.” Then we get that text, call, or card in the mail that lifts our day, unexpectedly. That’s a God moment!

Did you know that God instructs others to pray for you and lift you up? Just like today, God has instructed me to tell you about my God moment to lift your spirit and make you smile… why because God loves us and is present with us. Just listen and obey the God moments in your life.

I hope this Monday Moment has been your God moment and made you smile and give God praise.
