FROM THE PASTOR
Come and See
Anyone who has spent time around young children know what it’s like to have a little one come and urgently pull on your hand, imploring you to “come and see” whatever fascinating thing has caught their attention: a ladybug, a dandelion, that they can tie their shoes all by themselves, or the wonderful blanket fort they’ve created in the basement. Who can resist dropping everything to follow their command? “Come and see!”
For the next few weeks in worship, we’ll be walking around in parts of John’s Gospel. We’ll visit Nicodemus and the Samaritan Woman at the well. We’ll wonder at the transformation of water into wine as well as the multiplication of five loaves and two fish into a feast for thousands.
But it all begins with Jesus’ call to the disciples when they ask, “Where are you staying?”
He simply tells them, “Come and see.”
The invitation is to us as well. Come and see where it is that Christ abides. Come and see the stories unfold and get woven into our own lives. Come and see and taste the goodness of communion. Come and see and be part of your church as we strive to more fully become the hands and feet of Christ in the world. Come and see. See you on Sunday. Rev. Lynne
