To the Sojourners and little ones in Christ gathered in Ruston,
May his comfort, compassion, and conviction be upon you all. I hope you are well and staying hydrated as we get our first taste of hot days.
As we turn into summer, schools will soon be out, I ask you to give thought to summer plans. Summer is a great time to reach out to neighbors all around Ruston. Invite folks over for dinner on a weeknight. Ask a neighbor to borrow a tool or help with a project. We are salt and light and should promiscuously spread Christ-like love as we are able.
In Sunday School, we continue to think about the importance of Christology as evidenced through church history. We will begin to feel the need in the early church for the ecumenical councils and what these gatherings teach us about the church. Fun question: When was the first church council?
In worship, we continue in our Matthew Series. This Sunday we will look at Matthew 18:1–14, Compassion on the Little Ones. It is a fascinating set of teachings that Christ offers concerning children, church, and guardian angels(?). Come hungry and be filled.
