The Pastor's Post
By the time you read this we should have had our chili cook-off potluck. As I write this, I am looking forward to all the flavorful favorites of chili that I am sure will please the palate. A fun event held in the nicely air-conditioned beehive.
As I said in worship recently, I find it appropriate for us to have a chili supper at church. Besides for the friendly fellowship such an event creates, I have long believed chili is a lot like theology. You see, no two chili recipes are exactly the same and no two theologies are exactly the same. And yet, we can bring our different varieties of chili together for a satisfying and filling meal just like all of us, with our varying theological beliefs, can all come together for the meaningful worship and praise God.
And make no mistake; we have a wide ranging spectrum of theological beliefs in this church. We all come from various places and circumstances. All that we have experienced impacts what we believe about God. What we believe about God varies from person to person, church to church, denomination to denomination, faith tradition to faith tradition, but the key is what we can agree on and we can agree that we all believe in God.
My point is that no matter our backgrounds we can gather together to worship and praise God. And we do so with open arms, welcoming all that want to attend worship at United Church.
On that note, Sunday October 19 we will be welcoming new members into our faith community. The Sunday before, October 12, we will have a new member class following worship. If you are interested in joining United Church please schedule accordingly. If you know of someone who is interested in joining the church, please see that they have the dates. And, as always, if you know of someone that might be looking for a church home, invite them to attend worship here or one of our activities – like a tasty chili supper or one of the other wonderful events scheduled for this fall.
