Do you believe in luck?
I do. How else can you explain the Packer's win last night?
It's not that I don't believe in the sovereignty and providence of God. It's just that if God, in his sovereignty and providence, let that ref see something that didn't happen, then Packer fans are just plain lucky.
Okay, I'm just having some fun with this, so no hate mail. (And, yes, Packer fans, I know God owed you one.)
But there is an interesting interplay between luck and providence in Ruth 2 that we will be exploring this weekend in the sermon. It's super important for our outlook and our output.
But the weekend is about more than the sermon. It’s about a gathering where everyone is welcome to come and worship together.
It’s nothing new, but more and more Christians are opting out of church gatherings, while making up their own gatherings with a bunch of friends and calling it church.
Okay, I can buy that the day someone other than their closest friends, someone who is irritating or socially awkward, someone with special needs (or with kids with special needs), or really anyone who doesn’t fit their group can come to their church.
True gathered worship is about welcoming and being welcomed to worship side-by-side with all kinds of fellow believers, often flanked even by unbelievers who are seeking for God.
Come and worship with us. And, yes, even Packer fans are welcome.
