Eileen's Reflections


Do you think we would make the news headlines if we adapted a worship style such as what some countries have? We might have chanting and dancing, and oh, yes, drums. You say, “NO WAY?”

 

First Chronicles tells us David and the crowd danced, played harps, tambourines and clanged cymbals while celebrating the return of their sacred chest. It sounds like they were having a really fine time.

 

We can find numerous biblical references where worship was clearly a time of celebration. During July and August, we’re reflecting on how the stories in the book of Acts are relevant for us today. Luke (assuming he is the author) makes the church sound like the perfect community we might like to emulate. They shared all they had so no one was in need. They lived in unity.  There was so much excitement in their community that others flocked to them.  (A closer look does indicate some problems.)

 

I wonder what it would be like to have so many flocking to Havelock Christian that we struggled to find a place for everyone.

 

Summer seems like a perfect time to celebrate what we have in common. Worship on July 30 will be full of celebration as we conclude our “Christmas in July.”

 

I’m looking forward to sharing this special worship with you.

 

With you in the journey,     

Pastor Eileen
