Our Weekly Meditation
Father Chip has spoken about community. Community of church, faith, friends and God. So many people are searching for a community: refugees, old people, young people… Many go from church to church seeking, seeking what? Comfort, community, or God. Perhaps all three.
You can’t find a community until you dive in and get involved.
I love coming to our beautiful peaceful church to do flowers or just look at the stained-glass windows and spend some quiet time with God. I love seeing the old faces and the new, hearing little voices who are in search of Christ but perhaps don’t know it yet.
While ushering this week, I noticed a small helper at my side, so I slipped my hand in hers and together we ushered people to God’s table for Communion. Having small helpers to take the offering to the Altar, that is community. That is what I hope will engage the young to keep coming back, because they like to feel they belong and are involved.
Breakfast-in-between is fellowship and community.
I love my community of St. Andrew’s.
I pray that others will seek out our community because it has so many treasures that God provides.
Commit your way to the Lord and put your trust in him, and he will bring it to pass.
