Hi there! I’m not about long invitation letters for already established meetings but I ask that you would take a moment to read this one.
As we enter the year 2018 a.d I am reminded of that God is all about new life and new beginnings. It is fitting that the Church celebrates Epiphany after Christmas because by Christ’s birth into the world we are able to be re-born by water and by Spirit as well. As part of His body we are made a new creation.
I depend on the possibility of new beginnings. Often I get stuck in a rut and have a hard time seeing new horizons or new opportunity. Sometimes I see the opportunity and have the vision but have a hard time doing the work of following through. Other times I have vision and I do the work but then I do it in the wrong way so I don’t get the anticipated result. I am in need of forgiveness, new chances and new life. I believe we all are.
This year, many of us will come together to pray at the Prayer Summit Jan 29th – Feb 1st. I believe that the Church in Saskatoon are in need of new life and new beginnings as well and that that will only become possible if we seek that together. The world will get to know Jesus and the new life that He has in store for everyone when we love one another.
At the January SEMF meeting we will cover this Summit and the year ahead in prayer. If you are not able to participate in the Prayer Summit, this is a good opportunity to come together in prayer.
The meeting will be hosted by the Rock Church (http://therockchurchsaskatoon.ca) so it is a good opportunity to look at their renovated facilities as well. I hope to see you there.
In Christ, Jakob
