Recently from Pastor Andy’s Blog
Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything suitable for its time; moreover he has put a sense of past and future into their minds, yet they cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
There are things I have tried to explain to my children that I know were great events, products or even movies when they became available to the world. Some of the events included: watching Michael Jordon play basketball, the Pac-Man video game you could play for a quarter, and Michael Jackson released the Thriller album. Products that seemed we could not live without where: the Rubik’s Cube, (I could only get the first two rows), the first Apple computer, and I even gave Sandi a Cabbage Patch Kid for Christmas. The movies that I seemed to never wish to miss included: Caddy Shack, The Blues Brothers, and The Breakfast Club. But now when I look back and compare them to the latest fads, products and forms of entertainment, little actually remains that I felt impressive. To me the hanging onto what I once thought as the most significant influences in my life is little more than wishing to hang onto my glory days.
This was a time in my life when I had more hair, larger shoulders and a flatter stomach, but less focus on what God had in store for my life.
We as a body of Christ can easily get caught up in looking back at times past. We can look to a younger time in our lives when we not only had more energy but had worked hard to put everything in its proper place. It was a time when the only proper thing to do on a Sunday morning was to attend church, but that time has been left behind. Today we have so many options for our time, energy and support, that we are forced to decide what is best for us. Are the changes that we face as a church and the moving away from our glory days a bad thing for this body of Christ? I say, no they are not and we as a devoted body need to find a balance in the richness of our heritage as we are drawn by God’s light into a new era for His church.
This year at St. Luke Union Church we will begin and complete a pledge drive for our building project capital campaign. We will also move forward with our plans to determine how much we can accomplish with the money pledged.
It is our plan to begin construction in May of 2016 and be complete in August that same year.
As we move closer to the reality of this project for St. Luke Union Church, I grow excited to what God is leading us to become. I look at the mission that has been placed before us and find myself wondering about the possibilities. The 1980’s was a decade that I thought contained my glory days, but looking at the guiding hand of God, we are nowhere close to the glory God has planned for his church.
