Last week we made our transition to fall. Sunday School began a new year of learning together. Public schools welcomed back students. And we began a new worship series by Marcia McFee, “Outside My Own Little World.” As we move through the fall we’ll be exploring some of the big questions like “Why am I here?” “What’s my purpose?” “Why does the church exist?”
This Sunday, we’ll hear the story of Eutychus, a young man who falls asleep in church and falls to his death. (And you thought ushers with feathers and poking sticks were bad.) Spoiler alert: the story has a happy and miraculous ending as Paul revives him. The story lets us laugh a little, and also consider our own sleepiness. Have we fallen asleep to the needs of our neighbor? Perhaps it’s time for us to wake up and notice the world around us.
I’ll see you on Sunday,
Check out the song that inspire the series, Outside My Own Little World by Matthew West.
