Pastor's Word for November 2018
I just received a 2019 calendar from a friend of mine. It's a calendar promoting their business, but what's neat about it is that it features a different muscle car from the 1960s and 1970s -- the time when I was young and thought those kinds of cars were really cool! I still think they are cool -- that low rumbling V8 power. Anyway, I noticed that in December -- my birth month -- the featured car is the 1967 Corvette Convertible with the 427 V8 Big Block engine. The Corvette was always my favorite car growing up! Is that a coincidence or what?! Maybe it's a sign from God! For what, I'm not sure ... I can't really buy one and if I did, we don't have a garage to park it in. I guess I like some things that are a little older and not as "technical." Of course, now I'm also conscious of gas mileage, sooo I'm not sure that driving that Corvette around would be the most economical choice I could make.
We are on the cusp of Advent. This month we will be celebrating All Saints and Christ the King -- worship traditions which have stood the test of time, but are also very meaningful. Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God has shown us through the centuries that God is still with us in many ways. Sometimes the presence of God is shown through the most mundane of events and at other times in spectacular ways.
As with cars, my faith has grown and evolved over the years and yet I celebrate all the ways in which God has been present in my life. May you feel the presence of God in your lives in many and various ways too.
In God's peace,
