"Summertime and the Pentecost Season!"
Dear Members, Associate members and friends of Love of Christ,
Summertime has hit the Valley with extreme heat that has been setting records well over 100 degrees. However, in the evening we still get a nice breeze from the Gulf of Mexico that make most nights bearable.
Summertime! It's a time for vacations, a time when students and teachers get a break and for many, the hectic pace of life can slow down.
Nevertheless, in the church, summertime brings the Pentecost Season. The wind of the Holy Spirit, while blowing hither and thither, mysteriously calls people to faith and worship. Yes, it's the growing season as the scripture readings tell us that Jesus sent out the Apostles to make disciples of all nations by baptizing and teaching them all that he commanded.
Summertime! May it be a time for you that does not drain your life, but fills it with new energy. May it be a time of renewal and of spiritual growth. Yes, summertime is a growing season.
Come and worship with us at Love of Christ Lutheran Church. Come, let us be renewed and a blessing to each other, so that we may praise the Lord Jesus Christ and serve him.
It's summertime! Let us rejoice and be glad in each day!
"The Lord be with you ... "
