Sunday Sept 29, 2019 anthem: Sara Groves’ “Cave of Adullum”
What a weekend!
HollyDaze was our best ever! Related to the size of the turnout, the number of non-members, and the entire spirit of the affair was our celebratory $18,000 plus that we raised for Genesis. Last Saturday evening was simply one great party with so much laughter, goodwill and generosity that I already hear folks talking 2018.
I love worshiping at tables the morning after; I enjoy the change of pace and the fresh opportunities for community and conversation the set-up allows for. Your contributions to the Reformation “Solas” where you highlighted what kind of “only”s Genesis ought to affirm along with any flat out “no”s were inspired indeed. If we can make those “doors” the sort of witness we all carry into the world we are certainly proceeding and succeeding in Outfitting Authentic Disciples. You guys make my hosting and walking around fielding comments Sunday mornings easy indeed.
Monday morning we were packed into the Board Room for our new Monday Morning Study. That is a group you should check out if possible! We will hear from Session next week in more detail but it seems Chuck Winter’s October plea also swirled up some needed funds to bring 2017 into better clarity and balance. Thank you!
It was C-O-L-D this morning leaving Conifer! There can be no denying we are leaving Fall behind and essentially into winter. The sunshine always lifts my spirits and continues to be, for me, one of the best things about this great place in which we live. I hope you are finding ways to exercise your faith and will continue to open up to what is developing at Genesis. We are a better church when you are with us!
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger announcing peace, good news, salvation. (Is 52:7)
Genesis revolves around Jesus Christ, continually reminded of the high adventure Christ promises all who journey with Him. We encourage growth and service in one another, circling again and again around the One who brought us this far along our respective paths, and yet has further for us to go. We outfit disciples with an authentic sense of Christ’s challenges, as well as the amazing grace accompanying us along the Way.
