What are you looking for?

Dear Congregation,

I invite you to take the time to come worship at CCC on Sunday where our focus will be on Jesus’ question to the men who would be his disciples, “What are you looking for?” found in John 1:29-42. At the beginning of this three day week-end leading up to Monday’s celebration of the life and work of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , we might very well speculate that Dr. King would have answered that question with the words—justicefreedom, and equality. To that end, following the example of Jesus, he gave his life.

Each of us is challenged to ask that same question of our self as we search for meaning and purpose in our own life. During our time together in worship, I’ll share some thoughts about how that question has an important place in our own discipleship as we also try to follow Jesus’s example.

As Jesus said to the disciples in that same scripture passage, “Come and see.”

In Christ’s love,

Pastor Candy Thomas
Interim Pastor
Christ Congregational United Church of Christ

 

Sharing a few quotes from Dr. King…

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”
“Love is the only force capable of transforming enemies into friends and strangers into family.”
“Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it.
 Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it.
 Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.”
