Mystery

Image result for mystery of faith quote

I love this quote by Brene Brown, a social work professor from my hometown, who writes awesome books.

Faith is a place of mystery…

  • We humans don’t have all of the answers, and that is okay, because God is omniscient (all knowing). God knows it all, and we can put our trust in God.

  • Our faith journey is a lifelong process of learning, experiencing and discussing.

  • Unlike haunted houses, mystery doesn’t mean scary. It’s quite the opposite, actually—when we give in to the mystery (stuff we don’t know) about our faith beliefs and this world we live in, we give over control to God to fully take care of us. Through mystery, we allow God to be GOD. (Turns out, God is best at doing God’s job!!)  = )

Summer Plans –Mark your calendars (add to your phones)!

  • Heartland Camp – July 6-10. A five-day, all day camp at church! We will learn, play, share and serve. And we might even ride a horse. Registration opens in March!  The cost will be $50 per camper, and scholarships are available!
  • Youth/College Mission Trip to San Diego – July 18-24. A 7-day trip to San Diego with Sierra Service Project, working directly with organizations and locals around God’s work in immigration, wealth inequality, and the environment. We will stay in South County Boys and Girls Club, and we will work among Sierra Service Project’s  established, incredible ministries. This will be a life-changing, meaningful, fun trip! We have one spot left: flyer and form here.
  • 4D2nd Street Camp – August 3-6. Learn and perform an awesome musical in 4 days! Does it seem impossible? Well, it isn’t! Registration opens soon for this wonderful camp, directed by Pastor Allen.

You are so very loved.
