Summer Hours, Summer Tempo
Finally, summer is here! (Did the winter seem LONG to you, too?)I am sure we are all eager to get out into God's creation and play. I'm looking forward to BBQ, swimming, travel, vacation, and time with family and loved ones.During the summer our tempo slows down here at Faith to allow for more rejuvenation. The choir and Sunday school teachers get a much needed rest. The session and other teams take a summer hiatus.Summer is good for the mind and the body...and summer is good for the soul (you can quote me on that). I look forward to summer spirituality. I enjoy worshiping with Faith Church during these months. Although we miss our choir, we have special musicians who perform from a variety of genres. In lieu of Sunday school, we make more time to enjoy coffee, snacks, and fellowship before and after worship.When I travel, I enjoy being a visitor in another congregation. Joining with other communities at worship reminds me that God is at work everywhere. Sometimes another congregation will give me new ideas about what God is doing at Faith or help me to appreciate my congregation at Faith more deeply.How do you want to enjoy God this summer? God can re-energize your spirit. I encourage you to commit to attending worship on Sundays. Come to Faith to make new friendships or deepen existing connections. When traveling, visit other congregations to be blessed by them. Enjoy a sunrise or a sunset with God.Yay, it is summer! May God bless you and make it good for your soul!
