I am about to do a new thing;
now it springs forth,
do you not perceive it?
As a child, I constantly took things apart, just to see how they worked – toys, leaves, seed pods – whatever I could get my hands on. I am a questioner by nature. How does this work? Why does it work that way?
Asking questions is how I approach most things in life. I’m one of the first to question new things and change: Why are we doing this? Is this really better than what we were doing before? Is anyone annoyed that something has changed?
September is a month of new things – new school years, new Sunday school classes, new fall sports teams, new Bible studies, new prayer services, new routines and new ways of doing the regular school-year routines.
We’ll be doing some things the way we have for years, but we are adding in some new experiences – Wednesday evening Bible studies and a new way to pray in the evenings. There will also be a calendar in your family’s mailboxes with devotions for you to do at home to incorporate in your routines, at whatever time of day works for your family. These things came about from my asking questions of you all to see where we might want to explore adding things that will deepen our connection with God. I encourage you to try them. But, ask questions, dear friends. What else do you want to see happen here? What is missing? What new things is God calling us to do?
Peace & Blessings,
