Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! I often quote the unnamed source who said “coincidences are God’s way of remaining anonymous” (often credited to either Einstein or Doris Lessing), but usually prefer the term serendipity or providence for the way that occurences align well. I look forward to worship tomorrow when Derek Van Bever will open up the Word for us and I get to be there! Our choir has prepared a beautiful anthem, and in the way of serendipity, a song I had stumbled on this week carries part of the message that Derek will share. While today’s Blueberry Festival may tire out many, I hope that many of us will join together in worship, as well. Attendance has been very high this summer, and the Spirit is fresh among us! See you in church!
Blessings and Peace, Lisa
