A New Creation

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1. We live in what God has made and it is good. We are a portion of what God has made and we are good. It is a very sacred act that God has taken to make creation and to place us in it

Do you feel like you part of something that is sacred? The reality is God is still moving over the face of the world’s chaos. God is moving over the face of Egypt and the political disruption there. God is sweeping over the most chaotic circumstance within us and our family. The chaos caused by our sin is still being transformed into a new order every day.

We often miss the action of God’s work of bringing a new creation from the chaos for “What you focus on determines what you miss,” Richard Rohr. What are you focused on, and what new order that God is ready to drag out of the chaos might you be missing?

I am very excited about the congregational Advance this weekend at Ponderosa Retreat Center. There is no doubt that getting away from normal traffic patterns and expenditures of time causes me to look at the world from a new angle. With a fresh perspective I can see some of what I missed with my old focus.

If you are able to go on the Advance I assure you will be blessed by God. If you are unable to go, pray for those who go and they will pray for you as well.

Still in one peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
