Out in the Open?

TRULY YOU ARE A GOD WHO HIDES HIMSELF, O GOD AND SAVIOR OF ISRAEL (Isaiah 45:15).

We've started to take down the Christmas decorations at church.  We had originally planned to do this Sunday evening, but this was postponed due to the weather.  And so yesterday, after the Wednesday morning Bible class, Evelyn E. and Yvonne G. began the job.  The Men's Group will finish the task this Saturday.

The manger remains front and center in the sanctuary.  That is as it should be.  All you really need for Christmas decorations is a manger.

The manger reminds us that God likes to hide Himself out in the open, for all the world to see. 

But who would ever think to look for God in a manger? 

Behind the manger stands the cross.  The cross reminds us that God likes to hide Himself out in the open, for all the world to see. 

But who would ever think to look for God on a cross?

Today hundreds, maybe even thousands of people will pass by Our Saviour's.  The Church is where God hides Himself today.  But almost all of our neighbors will pass by without a second look.  

Many people come to church these days looking for food, for a gas card, or for help with rent.  Sadly, very few come looking for God.

TRULY YOU ARE A GOD WHO HIDES HIMSELF, O GOD AND SAVIOR OF ISRAEL (Isaiah 45:15)
