2 Corinthians 5:7 (RSV) …for we walk by faith, not by sight.
Sunday, we looked at how our imaginations are powerful. Our collective imaginations are shaped by the hope that we have found in God. A hope built on our trust in God’s steadfast love and promise to keep. To see with the eyes of faith is guided by our hope and ability to imagine the world and our part in it as God desires.
I asked us to respond to the question: “How we might we use our imaginations to picture living in the way of Jesus?” Reflecting together: how Abraham and Sarah imagined a future God promised, and how the founders of LPCC imagined a thriving church in a time where coming together was key to living out Jesus’ invitation to serve the city of La Porte.
As part of both stories from ancient to recent memory, we too are invited to still imagine the world as God hopes.
Sunday, we will consider how discerning together helps us grow together. This means that we will have continued opportunities for everyone in Sunday worship as well as opportunities to study the Bible together, and participate in a vision panel. These actions will lead us to a
congregational vision celebration in November. Discernment will be an exciting time in the life of LPCC!
