As followers of Christ, we must continually evaluate words, attitudes, innuendos, tones, or symbolic practices that cooperate with racism. Actions once accepted now must be corrected.
Listening and learning from younger generations on this issue is a critical practice to keep our heart in tune with today’s culture. This path calls for humility and constant self-correction. But as Christians, are we not people of transformation?
Our sabbatical ended yesterday, and I am so glad to be back at work with new perspectives, deeper appreciation for God’s blessings, and a renewed awareness of my call.
I’m so grateful for the CIL family that made this time possible, and I look forward to loving and serving this faith community with more effectiveness in this next era of ministry.
On June 9, CIL has the special privilege of hosting two guest speakers, Pastor Dan Scott from Christ Church in Nashville and Archbishop Masimango Katanda from the Anglican Church of the Congo.
What a special way to celebrate Pentecost Sunday!
One of the saddest statements in Scripture is found in Sampson’s story.
“But he did not know that the Lord had left him (Judges 16:20).”
That has been me before. Taking my gifts from God for granted, I have given away my secret strength and taken on causes without God. I am so thankful that he renews my strength after mistakes, and He never leaves me.
