Dear Friends in Christ, Dear Disciples:
I just finished choosing the Bible readings and worship themes for the month of June. And once again, I am thrilled by them. The God that shines through them amazes me, enlivens me, encourages me, enthralls me.
I want so much to share that with all of you.
And so I encourage you this summer to be disciples!
A disciple is someone who follows Jesus, who is dedicated to living her faith. It is the single best answer to the question, " What do you want to be when you grow up?"
But within the word disciple is another key to a life of joy: discipl ine.
I do want you all to be thrilled with God's presence in your life; and one of the keys to it is living a disciplined life of listening to God's Word.
Where to start? On this website you can find the Bible readings and themes for June (just click here). How about, starting each Monday, you live with the readings and the theme that leads up to the following Sunday? Come to church already immersed in the readings we'll read and talk about together at church. And if you're on vacation and can't make it to church, set aside time on Sunday to live with the readings once again.
Be disciples. You'll be amazed!
God is with you all!
