“Brighten the corner where you are….”
It’s the Fourth of July, again! A year ago we celebrated the 4th in the middle of this pandemic. This year, we are celebrating 245 years since this group of colonies declared that a king of England was not superior to the common man and did not have a God given authority over other men. Since that time, some 245 years, we have been working out what this declaration means:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
When these words were written, the framers did not really consider all men to include all humanity. They excluded those who did not own propety, all who were enslaved for any reason, those whose skin was of a different pigment, those who were not baptized into the Christian faith, those whose parents were not married, those who were blind, dead, crippled and women.
We, now, through our constitution, laws, traditions, and our Holy Scriptures, recognize that “all men” include women, those who are without property, those who are and were enslaved, those who come from non-European ethnicities and faiths, and even those unable to cope with complicated economy that we live in. The church has been part of these changes as we have obeyed Mica 6:8 instructions to “Do Justice and Show Mercy.”
In Micah 6:8, the prophet reports what the Tribune God requires of us. “Do Justice, Show Mercy, and walk Humbly with God.” Bishop Reuben Job in Three Simple Rules translates this to mean- “Stay in love with Jesus.”
In the next year, we willbe focusing on our walk with Jesus as we continue to pray, study, talk about our walk, worship and celebrate the sacraments. Meghan Burrell has begun the summer study with the Wednsday Adult Bible Study. The study focuses on the text Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby.
Please continue to pray for us as a congregation, as a city, as a state and a country that we may discern the next step that we are to make together on this path towards full maturity in Christ.
