Sorry for not sharing anything for a while. It is easy for me to put off writing an article for the website. As comfortable as I am in preaching a sermon I am just as uncomfortable writing an article. As I begin writing today you can feel the chill of autumn, and some may say the chill of winter although it does start for a couple of months.
We have been busy since the beginning of August. Jamie and I are officially empty nesters, both girls are in college. The oldest will be graduating next May and the youngest just starting. Time is fleeting by. In raising kids all you can do is your best. The time will come when they will be on their own and making decisions. They will make mistakes because we all do. However, as followers of Christ we can teach our children about the love of God and how they are created in His image. Nevertheless, God does not force them to receive His love. They must decide to let Jesus live in their hearts and to follow. It is our hope they grow in the love of Christ. We realize not every child lives in a home that teaches about this love. This is where the church goes to make disciples. We need to be meeting everyone where they are. Especially our children. Some places might be after school programs, opening our homes to foster care and children’s church to name a few. They need to hear the words of John 3:16- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
