“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

Greetings Morgan Church of the Nazarene!

       God is at work - do you see it? I know, life is full right now. There are a million things to do, schedules to keep, bills to pay, people to not disappoint. Our minds are on so many things each day that it is hard to give attention to the work of God that is not easily perceived. Take a moment, consider how God has been at work around you, or in you, in recent days. He says in Isaiah - "See, I am doing a new thing...do you not perceive it?" 

     Thank you for praying for our first board meeting of the fiscal year. Continue to pray for us, and pray for the church as a whole. Pray how you might participate more, whether through serving in a different capacity or through your tithes and offerings. We are in this together.

     "Together." I have been listening to recordings from the Church of the Nazarene Global Theology Conference that took place last month in Pilar, Argentina. The theme of the conference was "In the Power of the Spirit." The "togetherness" of the church is fertile grounds for the work of the Spirit. And the Holy Spirit empowers true community. The Holy Spirit at Pentecost wasn't given to a bunch of individuals, but to the church that was gathered. The church was gathered in prayer waiting expectantly for God to work - and He did! And he still does! To paraphrase from Hebrews 10:24-25 - Let us not neglect meeting together as some are in the habit of doing, instead, let us continue to encourage one another in love and good deeds by our gathering together! We need each other. We need to be reminded whose we are, who we are, and that we are not in this alone. Thanks be to God!

 

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday! That means we will be celebrating the giving of the Holy Spirit to the church!
