Touching Lives

Do you remember when you first met God? If so, was it an experience like the experience of the prophet Isaiah? Isaiah's encounter with God (Isaiah 6:1-8) is before us as we worship this Sunday; it is a powerful and memorable experience of meeting God. I hope we know something of this experience as we worship God this and every Sunday. As we worship this Sunday, we know it is Memorial Day weekend, so we will also have opportunity in worship to remember those who have gone before us in service to the church and in service to this country.

This past Sunday, we were fortunate to have John Quinlan of the Good News Jail and Prison Ministry speak of his work as a chaplain in this ministry.  As he did so, John reminded us of and thanked us for our years of support of this ministry. As we may sometimes forget the lives touched by our commitment to God's church and by our gifts to God's church, I am especially grateful to the witness of John Quinlan on Sunday.
