Peace be with you! This August is going to be a little different, we only have 4 days of State Fair, but there is still plenty to do! We will be at the First Thursday event downtown on the 2nd selling our Paying It Forward Fund pulled pork sandwich plates-stop by and get one! Back to School Blitz will be on the 5th, so remind those with school age kids to go get their supplies. The Bible reading marathon will begin at Jackalope Square this year because of the short fair schedule, so make an effort to stop by and hear the Word being read from beginning to end. With the weather being so unpredictable lately and with so many things changing in the church and our culture; it seems that there is no solid ground on which to stand sometimes. Every plan must have contingencies, allowing for the unexpected to happen. But when we plan for the unexpected we tend towards the unexpected to be negative. What happens when unexpected positive things occur? What if we actually allowed for grace and God to be a part of our planned actions? As we deal with things which are scary, from tornadoes to changes in the church, I say to you-Peace be with you. It reminded me of Christ appearing to the disciples, when they were frightened, harried, and without a clue as to what they should do with themselves, here is what the Gospel according to John 21:19 says: On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” So take a moment, let Peace enter into you, let Jesus’ love quiet your fears and then go on with your day proclaiming to others “Peace!” because Jesus is sending you to do this in His name!
