Pastor Debbie's E-Spire - May 10, 2017

This week I am at a worship conference and retreat at Zephyr Point in Lake Tahoe. Our welcome sheet had the attached instructions:

-whoever appears are the right people
-whatever happens is what needs to happen
-be open to surprise--"lean into it!"
-If a surprise comes your way--pay attention--it may be Divine Surprise
-when it's over--it's over

It was such a great way to start our week together...reminded that God has been and IS at work in our midst. I should expect God to be at work here and should lean into the people and conversations that emerge. It reminded me to look for God and open up to listen for the Spirit's voice.

It also made me think about our regular Sunday worship. Do we believe God has been working on us and in us to do something extra special in our time together? Do we look for who God has placed beside us (or in front of us) or do we only look for those we plan to see? Do we expect the Spirit to move in our hearts and look for holy appearances?

I think often we expect to "go to church", and that we might be able to find more ways to "lean in" to what God might do in that time.

I invite you to pray TODAY for what God will do on Sunday!

 

In Christ,
Pastor Debbie
