This is a season of transition. Some of us are sending kids off to college or to the first day of kindergarten. We’re getting back into busier routines, scheduling fall’s activities and events, and packing in the last to-do’s of summer. This week, I'm taking my youngest son to college, settling back into my pastoral work, and getting ready to tackle a list of big ministry goals. And in just a few months, I will turn 50!
If there is one thing that quiets my soul in this changing world—and in my changing life—it is the unchanging God I worship. “Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). There are times when this reminder from the Hebrews writer is both a wonder and a relief, and this week is one of those times.
On Sunday, I'm talking about this unchanging God. We will lift our prayers to Him in worship and celebrate with those whose lives have been changed and are being baptized. See you Sunday!
