The Always Family
We hope you’ll listen to last week’s message so you can get the visual of the red Solo cup in your head. That cup is a great encouragement. We know while we are making excuses and dragging our feet, God is waving flies away from our “cup” and waiting in love for our response. Ours is an Always God who never disappoints. This week we discover that he is also a God we can trust, who calls us into a trusting community. I can’t wait to talk through this one with you, as we learn together what it means to be an Always Family.
Disconnection is trending. We want to blame it on Covid, and it is true that pandemic life has put “distancing” into our everyday vocabulary. But the fact is, disconnection was cool before Covid and it probably won’t disappear when Covid recedes into the background. Why is that? On our own, we trend away from communities of grace. Rewiring ourselves to lean into our relationships requires intentional habits inspired by, empowered by, and sustained by the Holy Spirit.
This month, we'll talk about how that happens in a series of messages called "The Always Family." What is an "Always Family"? Paul describes it in his letter to the Corinthian church. It is a community that always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. What a great family to be part of! Let's learn together what it means to be an "always family" so we can make the most of 2022. See you Sunday!
