We're all haunted houses.
Full of ghosts.
The ghosts of those we've loved and lost.
Those we've hurt,
and those who've hurt us.
Echoes from our past, memories of love lost and found, reminders of chapters of our stories we thought we’d closed can unexpectedly arrest us in the midst of our routine.
In a song you hear-
In the resemblance of a loved one-
In the scent of a stranger
In a seemingly mundane experience that suddenly signals an unlikely response within you…
Layers of hurt or pain exposed at what seems like the most inconvenient moments.
We are all haunted houses, yet…
The prophet Isaiah speaks of perceiving the Divine in seeing a future that is only possible by walking through wilderness and wasteland rather than circumventing it.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.
We invite you to spend this fall with us for our series GHOST STORIES: The Hauntings Of Our Past, Present and Visions Of The Future. May we make peace with our pasts, deal with our unfinished business in the present, and confront that which holds us back from stepping into the possibility of the new things for which God is making a way in our future.
