Message from the Pastor

Pastor’s Column
July 2018

“Everyone Engaging the Entire
Community for Christ”

These weeks in July give us a unique opportunity to continue to behold firsthand the wonders of God’s creation.  This month will find many of us continuing to spend time outdoors, including vacationing, “get away” weekends, or doing projects outdoors that winter weather won’t allow. Summer festivals and concerts abound in our neighborhoods and in Chicago. Grills will be fired up, gardens will be tended to, and hopefully the Cubs will once again surge forward in their division, and we will do our best to make the most of these longer “lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer.”

May the following words from the prophet Isaiah be with you throughout this month.

May you read of the majesty of the Lord who created all that you behold. Finally, may you pause as these questions from Isaiah are put before you, and acknowledge the Creator of all and rejoice in the power and glory of our God.

“Do you not know? Do you not hear? Has it not been told you from the beginning? Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is He who sits above the circle of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; who stretches out the heavens like a curtain, and spreads them like a tent to dwell in; who brings princes to nothing, and makes the rulers of the earth as emptiness. Scarcely are they planted, scarcely are they sown, scarcely has their stem taken root in the earth, when he blows on them and they wither, and the tempest carries them off to stubble. To whom then will you compare Me, that I should be like him? says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them by name, by the greatness of His might, and because He is strong in power and not one is missing.”            Isaiah 40: 21 – 26
