What are you looking for?

Dear Congregation,
I invite you to take the time to come worship at CCC this 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. That quote has also been translated as, “What are you seeking?” We had a good discussion in Bible study Monday night about the shades of meaning between the words “seeking” and “looking for”.
At the beginning of this three-day weekend leading up to Monday’s celebration of the life and work of The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., we might speculate that Dr. King would have answered that question with the words justice, freedom, 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 ourself 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 strive to follow Jesus’ example. As Jesus said to the disciples in that same scripture passage, “Come and see.”
In Christ’s love,
Pastor Candy
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.”
“We may have all come on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.”
