Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus’ disciples asked him to teach them how to pray, and we continue to pray in that spirit even today. In terms just as direct, Jesus often tells his listeners how to engage relationships in the way that will build up rather than tear down, both individually and in community. In a similar way, Paul writes his letters to the churches, trying to teach simple ways of behaving, using very straightforward language that can provide us a kind of guidebook for how to navigate life’s difficulties. On this Consecration Sunday, when we celebrate God’s gifts to us and our giving of gifts to the church in return, we ask God’s blessing on this church and its ministry in community, and pray that we would be strengthened to give and to be as God would have us be.
Blessings and peace, Lisa
