Here comes yet another wonderful month that is filled with events and special Sundays. In the month of October, we will be welcoming new family members to our church as well as celebrating World Communion Sunday and Reformation Sunday with trunk-or-treat. We will also be having a special Sunday recognizing Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.
For the sermon series, we will be continuing our conversation on the works of the Holy Spirit by diving into the book of Job. Job is a story that is familiar yet difficult to read and interpret. Yet, it is a story filled with imagery, emotions, and mystery. And, it helps us to think about our discernment process—how do we make sense of the fact that someone like Job, who was considered “blameless and upright,” was tested by God? When we feel deserted or disoriented like Job did, how do we “wait for” or “feel the presence of” the Holy Spirit? And then God finally speaks to Job. What would you do in his place? Would your perspective on the story change if you read it from God’s perspective rather than Job’s?
There is mystery and wonder in the story of Job. And, there is mystery and wonder in your life. I invite you to welcome the month of October by celebrating our wonderful special Sundays as well as seeing what the Holy Spirit has prepared for you!
