Time changes things, doesn’t it? I think of the passage from Exodus where the author writes, “A Pharaoh rose to power who did not know or remember Joseph….” Time brings wonderful amnesia and new faces who never knew what had happened here. We are beginning to see a hint of a new sunrise in our church family. The first rays of a new day. People attending who know nothing of our past and pain. A new day and many before it changes everything.
We are also adding new staff who have no history of what we have gone through. Honestly it’s a good thing to have new staff who are excited about our church and have no knowledge of what happened.
Our church is changing slowly. It always does as it moves away from a tragedy like ours. I didn’t know if we would see daylight again, but I am seeing the beginnings of a new day. It’s exciting!
As you begin your journey in this dark land know that there will be a new day ahead. Serve the Lord, pray, teach his word, love one another and slowly…day by day….a new day will come. I just wanted to take a moment and encourage you that there is hope ahead.
