The 8am service has come to a close with sadness and thanksgiving for all God has done through that service over the last 40 years.  In all of life there is birth and death.  We rejoice at births and mourn deaths.  In families we look for new births to carry us into the future.  In faith God talks about doing "new things."  In our prayer, our worship, our mutual care and our planning we look for what God's grace and love is doing now.  We don't know all that God has in store for us.  What we do know is that when we catch up and participate in what God is doing there is always new birth and excitement.  Let's look and follow together.
