Chasing Rainbows–Sunday, 2 January 2011

Happy New Year from the Deer Creek Charge! We hope that your holidays have been restful and you are now rejuvenated for the year to come. Start the year off right by trying a new resolution–working on your relationship with God. You are always welcome to join us for worship or any of our ministries and activities as we journey  together towards a closer walk with God.

Last week we looked at Matthew 2:13-25, where Jesus and his family escape to Egypt to get away from King Herod who wante to kill Jesus. Herod thought Jesus was going to be an earthly king who would usurp Herod’s power. Instead, Jesus became THE KING–God on earth. We looked at what it meant to be a refugee–both then and there, and here and now. We had examples from the genocide in Rwanda, latino immigrants in Baltimore, and the “refugees” in our own families…and even ourselves. We looked for the people that we have “cast out” of our lives, and how we could welcome them back…just like Jesus was welcomed back from Egypt.

This week, we are talking about chasing rainbows–following where God leads us, even if we don’t understand what that really means or where we will end up…just the like the magi (wise men) in this week’s scripture passage (Matthew 2:1-12). Come find out what this means in your life in 2011.The magi were radical figures in their day and time. Why? Want to see what other “radical” figures might make an appearance in our nativity? Join us this week at Deer Creek (9am) or Mt. Tabor (11am) to find out!

May God bless you and your family in 2011!
