Hey, everyone! Frank and I went with his mom, Annette, to Galloway Presbyterian Church in Galloway, OH. They put ribbons in the hymnals if one chose to mark the hymnals ahead of the service. Pretty neat. I’d help make them if anyone’s interested.

A blessing is something that you can't pursue; it can only be received as a gift. In the Beatitudes, Jesus is not offering a receipt for success or keys to happiness or a road map to having your best life now. Rather, Jesus is demonstrating once again that God regularly and relentlessly shows up just where we least expect God to be in order to give to us freely what we can neither earn nor achieve: blessedness.

Being a Christian is about leaving one's nets and sitting at the feet of Jesus in the community of folks also gathered at his feet.
It's about going on a journey with Jesus out in the fearful and hurting world, ready and open to hear that calling over and over again to leave one's nets in order to do a thing that is needed, to relate to someone who needs you, to take on a task you feel unprepared for.
At any unexpected moment — and to unsuspecting people — can come the call to discipleship to get up, leave the nets and follow the footsteps of love incarnate.
God can move and work in your life and mine. Often it sneaks up on us, but remember it is the miracle of God's work among us.

[01/21/20]   Spend some time at the beginning of this week meditating on this scripture discussed in the adult Sunday School class led by guest minister Derek Longbrake:

His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Thus he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust, and may become participants of the divine nature. For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love. For if these things are yours and are increasing among you, they keep you from being ineffective and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For anyone who lacks these things is short-sighted and blind, and is forgetful of the cleansing of past sins. Therefore, brothers and sisters, be all the more eager to confirm your call and election, for if you do this, you will never stumble.
2 Peter 1: 3-10

Today's Lesson from the Psalter is Psalm 36:5-10.
As our guest minister Derek Longbrake explained, love in this passage is the Hebrew word hesed meaning God's unfailing, long-acting and enduring love.

Just a reminder, in honor of MLK day, the office is closed on Monday, January 20th. Happy Holidays!

Presbyterian Women in the PC(USA)

We are so busy, Lord, we do not listen.
The world is so noisy, Lord, we do not hear.
We do not hear what your Spirit is saying to each one of us.
We have been afraid of silence.
Lord, teach us to use your gift of silence.
Teach us, Lord.

What will you be focusing on in 2020?

Matthew 2:1-12 The Message (MSG)
Scholars from the East
2 1-2 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem village, Judah territory— this was during Herod’s kingship—a band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East. They asked around, “Where can we find and pay homage to the newborn King of the Jews? We observed a star in the eastern sky that signaled his birth. We’re on pilgrimage to worship him.”

3-4 When word of their inquiry got to Herod, he was terrified—and not Herod alone, but most of Jerusalem as well. Herod lost no time. He gathered all the high priests and religion scholars in the city together and asked, “Where is the Messiah supposed to be born?”

5-6 They told him, “Bethlehem, Judah territory. The prophet Micah wrote it plainly:

It’s you, Bethlehem, in Judah’s land,
no longer bringing up the rear.
From you will come the leader
who will shepherd-rule my people, my Israel.”

7-8 Herod then arranged a secret meeting with the scholars from the East. Pretending to be as devout as they were, he got them to tell him exactly when the birth-announcement star appeared. Then he told them the prophecy about Bethlehem, and said, “Go find this child. Leave no stone unturned. As soon as you find him, send word and I’ll join you at once in your worship.”

9-10 Instructed by the king, they set off. Then the star appeared again, the same star they had seen in the eastern skies. It led them on until it hovered over the place of the child. They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place! They had arrived at the right time!

11 They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother. Overcome, they kneeled and worshiped him. Then they opened their luggage and presented gifts: gold, frankincense, myrrh.

12 In a dream, they were warned not to report back to Herod. So they worked out another route, left the territory without being seen, and returned to their own country.

[01/01/20]   Start 2020 with Sunday's Call to Worship from Ecclesiastes 3:
Praise be to God,
Creator of time and space!
Who has set eternity in the human heart.
Who gives us today
In which we can be happy and do good.
In which we can eat and drink and find satisfaction.
Which is a gift from God.
Let us worship the One who makes everything beautiful in its time.
For everything God does will endure forever.
Forever and ever. Amen.

Thank you Frank Gasperini for leading worship on Sunday. It's worth taking some time on the last day of 2019 to reflect on some of the scripture you highlighted:

He has showed you, O man, what is good;
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

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,
they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
they shall run and not be weary,
they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31

Brethren, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but one thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:13-14
