Missionary Sponsorship Change
For a number of years, Our Savior’s has supported missionaries Phil & June Nelson, who share in the ministry of the Lutheran Church in the Central African Republic. Phil & June will be ending their missionary service this summer. Please continue to pray for them. We are excited to continue our missionary partnership by supporting Susan Smith, who advises the Village School Program and supports Christian Education Ministries. We are excited to learn more about Susan and the ministries in which she shares. You can read her blog at susan-car.blogspot.com.
Reflections on Change by Pastor Randy
Jesus once asked a man,
"Do you want to be made well?" (John 5:6)
A very odd question to ask since
the man had been ill for thirty-eight years.
Of course, he’d want to be made well
so why would Jesus ask?
To be made well means to change.
To become sober means to change.
To become clean means to change.
Change the old life.
Change the familiar patterns.
Do you want to change?
You may have prayed the Serenity Prayer
"God grant me the serenity to
accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference."
Change a light bulb.
Change of name.
Change of heart.
You may have sung the song
"Change my heart, O God;
make it ever true.
Change my heart, O God;
may I be like you."
You may have heard it said,
"The only person
who likes change
is a baby."
Do you want to change?
Change is hard.
Change is scary.
Be open to change in your life.
Think about the places in your life
that need to be changed
in order to be closer to Jesus Christ.
Write down on
a piece of paper
you will begin today.
And in the midst of all change,
remember the promise that
"…Though the earth should change,
we will not fear,
God is our refuge and strength…"(Psalm 46)
