Dear Friends in Christ:

5 Then he said, “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” 6 He said further, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God (Exodus 3:5-6).

The Burning Bush is a well-known story in the Bible. God chose to appear to Moses in a bush that was on fire but was not being consumed. God had something important to tell Moses. God had something essential for Moses to learn as he was leading God’s people from Egypt to the Holy Land.

But first, Moses had to enter into the space that God had provided. Moses had to be made ready to hear God’s news. Moses had to connect to the source of life before he was ever going to be made ready to be the leader for the people. God demands Moses take off his shoes as he approaches the bush. Most often we have read this as a sign of respect. And it very well might be indirectly a sign of respect for Yahweh. However, I think what is more powerful here is not a narrative about manners, but rather a revelation as to how God works when he pulls you into God’s work. “Take off your shoes, because in order to do the work I have for you, you must be directly connected to me.”

Dear Friends in Christ:

Summer, of course, is a time for rest and relaxation after a busy school year and as the change of seasons sends us to places where we can cool off from the summer heat. I hope and pray that everyone finds the time to visit creation or wander away to visit family and friends during this break in the year.

Things get a little slower around the church as well as we transition into summer. Our church choir, the women’s study group (GALS) and the Children’s worship time will take a summer hiatus until things fire back up again in August. I can’t say enough about our church choir under the leadership of Jane Ford. We have been truly blessed as a congregation to have so many wonderful souls dedicate their time and musical talents to brighten up our Sunday mornings in giving praise to our Lord. I am really looking forward to the time when they will fill the sanctuary with their heavenly voices.

Dear Friends in Christ:

Each Easter, we hear the same story of shock and surprise experienced by everyone at the empty tomb as well as by the appearance of the Risen Christ. Every year. What a surprise it is though, the surprise that changed the lives of the first disciples and changes our lives. The surprise of God’s grace, God’s love given to us and for us, the gift of life, both here and now, promised for all eternity. No other surprise can be so transformative.
