SEPTEMBER CHALLENGES



Do you remember when school started in September, the day after Labor Day, and ended around June 15th?  There were no late Fall or Spring Breaks (at least not in the school systems in the St. Louis where I grew up).  With September, there was always the challenge of getting back to the norm of education and the exciting adventure of meeting the challenges of the next higher level of education (and the pride of being at that higher level).  


A major challenge for some of us this month will be the challenge of getting back into the swing of Thursday Bible Study, PW&M, choir practice, and Thursday Morning Coffee Fellowship.  All of us have never been involved in all of these activities and that’s understandable.  Let’s meet the challenges of getting back into the midst of those that have been meaningful for us in the past.  Let’s not forget that for a church activity to be available for someone looking for more opportunity to enrich their spiritual lives we have to be there for them.  Let’s do it early in September and with a spirit of excitement.  Let’s approach the challenges as opportunities for adventuring with our Lord Jesus Christ.  Never forget that living for Jesus is an exciting adventure. 

 

Let’s make this hymn our special hymn for September:

 

 

 “Sweet, Sweet Spirit”


There’s a sweet, sweet Spirit in this place,
And I know that it’s the Spirit of the Lord;

There are sweet expressions on each face,
And I know it’s the presence of the Lord.

Sweet Holy Spirit, Sweet heavenly Dove,
Stay right here with us,    

Filling us with your love;
And for these blessings   

We lift our hearts with praise;
Without a doubt we’ll know that we have been revived,
When we shall leave this place.

 


God bless!  Fred
