    Luke 18:15-17

    One day some mothers brought their babies to him to touch and bless. But the disciples told them to go away. Then Jesus called the children over to him and said to the disciples, “Let the little children come to me! Never send them away! For the Kingdom of God belongs to men who have hearts as trusting as these little children’s. And anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get within the Kingdom’s gates.”

    Pastor's notes

    Dear Central Family,


    Lynn, John Wesley, and I thank you for your continued welcome to us at Central. This is a great church to serve, and we look forward to many experiences of community, worship, outreach, and service.

     

    As you see elsewhere in the newsletter, Central has many opportunities for spiritual nurture, fellowship, and growth coinciding with the advent of fall and the beginning of the school year. I believe that the Holy One and other holy influencers often “nudge” us to take advantage of these kinds of opportunities, which then become avenues and means of grace. I hope you will   respond to those promptings.

     

    Another confession: I subscribe to a rather exalted view of Christian worship that every time we gather in the name of Jesus, we celebrate a living Lord, “God with us,” opening ourselves to the praise and peace that God wills for every beloved child and follower of Christ.

     

    As we do so in the next few weeks, we will continue our emphasis on the “I Believe” statements found in the Apostles’ Creed: 


    I Believe in the Holy Spirit, I Believe in the Church and the Communion of Saints, I Believe in the Forgiveness of Sins, and I Believe in the Resurrection and the Life Everlasting.

     

    Looking forward to this journey with you,


    Rick
