It is that time of year again, Vision Sunday! I love it when we can all stop and consider what God has done through the Quest and how we will join him in the new year. It is a good day and we have a great service planned for us all to enjoy.
There is a remarkable thing happening in Novato. We are on a wave that is moving through our community, and helping our friends and neighbors to awaken to a way to have a life with God. Many people are seeing a way to God that seemed impossible in the past by road blocks erected by misunderstandings of who God was, and what a life with God may look like.
Our friends and neighbors are beginning to see and hear. This will be a remarkable year and we seem to be in a place where we can help more people than ever before to realize what many of us have already realized.
We have a lot of work to do, and we have some sacrifices to make, but there will be fruit if we stay in the fray and do what we can do. That is all that God ever asks, ‘Do what you can do.’ Remember the story of when Jesus fed 5,000 people with a loaf of bread and a few fishes that were given him to a young boy? The beauty of the story is that God can take what we have and make it enough. You see, we don’t have to have enough to meet the needs that we see, we just must be willing to give what we have. The ‘enough’ part is God’s job. That is a beautiful thing.
We will talk about it this weekend. You will hear from the staff in a unique way. We will enjoy some great music, and we will take a great step into the future together. Please plan on being with us. We need you to do your part and become more of an ‘owner’ of the Quest and our vision together.
I hope that all is well with you and I do hope to see you this weekend. We really do need your help and your voice will make a difference. Thank you for being a part of what is happening in our community. It is such an honor to be in this with you.
Peace to you my friends,
