4thDear Members and Friends;

As summer continues, we need to be constantly aware of our faithfulness to God and each other.  It’s easy to lose sight of what each of us needs to do for each other and our church because the church is always there and the people are always around. 

A few years ago there was an article by Philip Yancey in Christianity Today that I think can help to remind us about how easy it is to take things for granted.  He said:

“I remember my first visit to Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.  Rings of Japanese and German tourists surrounded the geyser, their video cameras trained like weapons on the famous hole in the ground.  A large, digital clock stood beside the spot, predicting 24 minutes until the next eruption. 

My wife and I passed the countdown in the dining room of Old Faithful Inn overlooking the geyser.  When the digital clock reached one minute, we, along with every other diner; left our seats and rushed to the windows to see the big, wet event.

I noticed that immediately, as if on signal, a crew of busboys and waiters descended on the table to refill water glasses and clear away dirty dishes.  When the geyser went off, we tourists oohed and aahed and clicked our cameras; a few spontaneously applauded.  But, glancing back over my shoulder, I saw that not a single waiter or busboy – not even those who had finished their chores – looked out the huge windows.  Old Faithful, grown entirely too familiar, had lost its power to impress them. 

Few things are more quickly taken for granted than God’s faithfulness.  But few things are more important.  God’s faithfulness deserves our untiring praise and wonder.”

Interestingly enough, while the workers paid little attention to the awesomeness of old Faithful, Old Faithful has changed over the years.  Seismic activity has affected the eco-balance in the park’s subterranean water levels.  These disruptions have made the earlier mathematical relationship inaccurate, but have in fact made Old Faithful more predictable.  With a margin of error of 10 minutes, Old Faithful will erupt 65 minutes after an eruption lasting less than 2.5 minutes or 91 minutes after an eruption lasting more than 2.5 minutes. 

How often do we fail to pay attention to those things near and dear to us and they change seemly without notice?  May we always be faithful to the Lord, each other and the church.

Faithfully Yours,

Merrill

CrossDear Members and Friends;

As spring comes to a close, a number of things occur.  Schools will be out soon, people will be planning their vacations and every-one anticipates some leisurely time with family and friends.  Here at the church, we are preparing for our summer schedule.  There will be the Fire Works Booth, special Youth Group trips and the Men’s Group and Youth will again go to the NAOMI House.  We also look forward to Vacation Bible School in August. 

Mother’s Day is always a special day for most folk because without mothers we wouldn’t be here.  For me, I look back on the sacrifices my mother made to make sure that my brother and I got an education as well as instilling in us the values that have served us well over the years.  She once told me that the strength of one’s character is the only thing that lasts. 

To ensure that the character that we developed would endure, she made sure that we were involved in church at every opportunity.  I remember she read the Bible to us every day after supper.  At the time, it felt like she was just interrupting our play time with our friends but I now realize she was laying the foundation that will build lasting character following the examples in Scripture. 

I look forward to this summer and the events that we will participate in here at Community Church. 

May this summer be a blessing to all of you.

In Christ, Merrill
