On Your Mark ~ Get Set ~ Go!!!
On Sunday, September 10, we began our journey through the second year of the Narrative Lectionary. We are so excited about the themes surrounding the weekly Bible stories that will shape our faith in the coming year.
This fall, as we hear about God working through people in the Old Testament, we will engage in the ways God works through people like us. We will consider what it means to be ON YOUR MARK, celebrating the gifts with which God has already equipped each of us to serve.
In the winter, we will GET SET as we hear stories of Jesus’ life in Mark’s Gospel and notice how Jesus transforms people like us for God’s work.
Then in the spring, we will encounter stories of the Holy Spirit at work in the early church while we discover ways that the Spirit sends people like us to do God’s work. The Spirit tells us to GO!
God does not call us simply to remember servants of the past or look forward to service one day in the future. Every day, God calls, transforms and sends us – HERE AND NOW! On Your Mark!….. Get Set!….. And GO!!!
