NEWS & NOTES

One of our members, Annie Bueno, reflects below on what she learned from the morning Bible study on the book of Joshua:

So many promises, all of them fulfilled. Repetition, symbolism, sacred objects and measured distances. Reading Joshua this summer has brought to life songs and stories sung and read without the full narrative, until now.

It is hard for me to fully see how God is using what Joshua spoke to me over the course of the study, but that idea, of the waiting to see it realized, resonates in this book. God promises place, and leads. People, and walls tumble. The Israelite journey is arduous, detailed, seemingly methodical, and yet we were able in our study to bring our minds and hearts down to the road with them. They were tired, hungry, without their own land, lead to carry great weight. Time, God used His perfect time to fulfill each promise.

I am left assured of God’s faithfulness, His matchless vision, His ability to do all, His great care, and now ponder what He has promised us, in His perfect time.

THIS COMING SUNDAY

THE MYSTERY OF COMPASSION
Psalm 22:1-2
Santiago Fajardo

At times some may diminish the life and passion (suffering) of Christ in light of emphasizing his death. Christ did, indeed, die on our behalf, and that allows us to proclaim with joy that he has redeemed and reconciled us. But what we often forget is that he reconciled and redeemed by suffering with us. His mutual suffering with broken humankind is the way in which he healed us. His compassion, his taking on a suffering that was not his own, gave us life and healing, and it  tells us something about what it means for us to live in compassion towards each other.
