God in Plain Sight
Glimpses of God in the Ordinary
"God works through the ordinary. Ordinary people, everyday objects, things we bump up against moment by moment," writes Jill J. Duffield in the introduction of her Lenten devotion, Lent in Plain Sight. The Rev. Dr. Duffield is editor of The Presbyterian Outlook and has written the devotional book with the hope that by journeying through Lent while looking at Scripture and 10 ordinary objects like dust, stones and bread we will be able to "see God everywhere, in all things, in all creation, every day of the year." Honoring or lifting up "the ordinary" is what Pastor Deb has been trying to do through our Advent encounters with ordinary folk like Joseph, Mary and Elizabeth. They had extraordinary events happen in their lives, as a result of saying 'yes' to God, but they were just as ordinarily human as you and I, and God worked miracles through them. For Lent Pastor Deb is preaching on some of the ordinary-objects Scripture passages and, before the quarantine, she and Pastor Randy are offering prayer stations focused on seeing God in the various ordinary objects. She is also encouraging the congregation to take some time to notice God in the every day, ordinary world around them, and then to write them down. God likes the ordinary; after all, He created it. Celebrating and noticing the ordinary reminds us that God is present with us in the day-to-day living of our mostly ordinary lives. We had cards that you would write on in the sanctuary, and even though we are not there to write them on the cards, you can still write them to us. Fill out the form below to sent in your 'God Plain Sight'. Kelle will still add them to the bulletin board and Pastor Deb will still share a few during next weeks' sermon.
