“Without a vision we perish”
In Proverbs 29:18 we read, “where the is no vision the people perish”. I like how Eugene Peterson translates this passage in The Message … “If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed.” This is always relevant as people of faith try to be faithful in living out the lives, vocation, mission and ministry that God invites his people into throughout all time and in all places. That includes us here at St. Paul’s in 2022 as we are entering into a time of being intentionally attentive to listening to God in order to discern the vision of who God calls us to be and all God calls us to do as we participate here and now in the building up of God’s kingdom.
Remember back to the service celebrating the beginning of our ministry together in September 2017. Now Bishop Susan Bell preached an inspiring sermon that reminded us that God is up to something here at St. Paul’s and it was up to us to come on board and enter into the grace filled mission God was calling us to join Him in. Five years later that’s still true. And in our time together, we have tried to discern where God was calling us and the ministries we were being called to in. Read More.
