It’s Good to See You!
Worship with us, in person or online
Sunday, 10 a.m.
Have you heard? We’re gathering in person again! But in a different location and with social distancing and safety top of mind.
What about online? We’ll still be gathering virtually too, but now – even better – live-streaming! Either way, you probably have lots of questions – so head over here for more on our in person and online gatherings this summer.
In this space, we want to share a quick preview of what we’ll be talking about in our new teaching series – It’s Good to See You!
First, obviously, the joy of being back together. We are making it through a season unprecedented in our lifetime. It is good to see you.
But also, we need to face the pain of this moment. Our country faces a pandemic, economic uncertainty, and nation-wide protests of racism and injustice. The first step to fighting injustice is simply keeping your eyes open.
As followers of Jesus, those praying for his kingdom to come, his will to be done, on earth as it is in heaven, we are called to work toward justice, peace, and reconciliation. Standing in our way are temptations and biases that lead us to turn a blind eye, to look away, to avoid seeing what’s right in front of us.
So let us remember that it is good to see! Anything brought into the light can be forgiven, healed, restored. And everyone we see is made in the image of God. Understanding the story of someone of another race or ethnicity honors them and their maker.
So may God give us eyes to see, to communicate his love to others as we listen, look, and learn. May it be true of us, what Jesus once said, “Blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.”
