Starting Sunday, September 8, we will launch into a 5-week sermon series Be Still. Throughout scripture a particular emphasis is placed on the intentional time needed to be still before God. In our Christian tradition, we have liturgical seasons where time slows down and we are invited to pay close attention to God and be still. It’s in those times that we know God. It’s in those times that our ever-moving minds stop and know and remember who is in charge, who is leading us. We remember the One who is directing our movement.
This September, I wonder, what would it look like if we intentionally moved into the church program year observing this particular stillness? What if our worship was one of slowing down, finding stillness, so there can be lasting change and direction to our future movement as a congregation. I hope you will join us this Sunday and every Sunday throughout this series in September. I’m hopeful that in intentionally setting aside this season to be still, we will come to know God more fully and God’s direction for our life together this coming year.
