Upcoming Series: Before The Fall
The fall is coming. Come end of August most of us will press “play,” duck our heads and sprint through the noisy chaos only to lift our gaze when it’s all over. Christmas. Summer’s not over, but we already seeing the finger holes of water popping through the dam, breaking through to flood us with school, soccer, parties, yard work; a flood of too much to do and too little time to do it; too many people to see and too little energy to endure it; too many kids to transport with too few cars and drivers to make it work. Fall is about to collide with our not so restful summers.
To survive (dare I say “thrive”) this fall, we must re-center and repetitiously remember who we are, what we’re here to do, and who’s with us through it all. Before September, we’ll spend time resting in three core truths found before The Fall (Genesis 3). Listening to God’s word in Genesis 1-2, we will hear truth shaping the core of our identity, calling, and communion with God. Centering our souls on these truths this season will provide us with the sure footing and sustainable rhythms to fill our falls with vibrant life.
