WALK, TALK & PRAYER

In January, join Pastor Tim on Thursdays at 11am for “Walk,
Talk & Prayer.” We will go for a short walk near the church
and take some time to talk and pray for Lakeside and East
County, so wear your walking shoes and masks.
The first walk is on Thursday, January 7.
Hope to see you then.

A Note from Pastor Tim . . .

Reset. Begin again. Restart.

 

These words remind us that there are times in life where we get a second chance, times when we get to start over. It can happen in trivial ways, like when we are playing a game of solitaire on our phone and we press, “Restart”, but it can also happen in the important areas of our life.

 

If there is one thing that I can take away from all that transpired in 2020 (and has continued into 2021) is that I need a reset. The adjustments in life that I have experienced have caused me to pause and to rethink some of the things that I do and the ways that I do them. It is one of the positives of 2020.

 

One of the areas that I am refreshing in my life is to be more Christ-like. This is something that all of us as Christ followers are to do. That is the ultimate goal of our lives if we claim Jesus as Lord. It is the process that theologians call “sanctification,” which is the process of becoming more holy or more like Christ. It is the daily task of the Christian.

 

         For the past few weeks that is what our sermons have focused upon. How can you and I be more Christ-like? What are the characteristics that we should display in our lives to reflect our love for Christ? As we display these characteristics it will have an effect upon our relationships, our neighbors, our church, even all of East County.

 

         So if you missed any of the sermons, you can go back and listen to them on our YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEDVzMDlSUqclWmmb-YRTUA/videos) and join us on-line this Sunday as we take another look at another characteristic that helps us to be more like Christ.

 

         See you on Sunday.

 

Pastor Tim
