A NEW THING FOR A NEW NORMAL
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
Like many, if not most, small churches,
we have been left unsure by the events of the last eighteen months;
though not doubtful of our purpose
or our core values.
Clearly, we want to take time
to embrace the challenges of the wilderness we have arrived in;
to perceive opportunities already springing up;
to understand the new way under construction;
to be replenished by the streams that are emerging.
For all this to happen we will need to change;
to believe for new direction and resource.
Come and help us discern
what we should
as we are revived and renewed.
Do not cling to events of the past
or dwell on what happened long ago.
