Our pastor has been doing a really interesting sermon series on the living waters of God.  Living waters is a term I learned only last year.  Living water is river water, creek water, ocean water, lake water.  It is water as found in the natural world.  It changes its landscape.  It sustains life.  It shapes the world.

Our church has recently made the decision to end several long time activities.  We simply don’t have the young muscle power needed to put on a rummage sale that fills the fellowship hall.  We used to.  And we did for over 20 years.  But the neighborhood just doesn’t come out like they used to for these events.

Through this sermon series Pastor Sean is encouraging us to find what it is Christ would have us do instead. We are being called to be his people in a troubled world.  And we have to figure out where that is.  And the funny thing about being Christ’s people is that he will tell us.  We simply have to listen.  If we do, we will find ourselves creating a new opportunity to come together, to serve him, and to help others.

Change.  We can create it because we are children of the Creator God.  We simply need to listen and follow Him.

What can you create today?  Creativity isn’t just about knitting a sweater and recreating a landscape on canvas.

It includes creating a quiet space to hear God, peace and beauty, acceptance and tolerance.  We are all made in God’s imagine and ours is a creator God.  We all have the ability to use his energy and love for good.  We can create moments of happiness, a sense of relief or just a decrease in worry among those who need His healing Grace.

Remember we are his hands and his feet.  We take his love and light out into the world.

How will you use it today?

“When I look at the galaxies on a clear night – when I look at the incredible brilliance of creation, and think that this is what God is like, then instead of feeling intimidated and diminished by it, I am enlarged…. I rejoice that I am a part of it.”
