Honor Where Honor Is Due

This Sunday at 9 AM, FXCC will honor the local Fire and Police "people" of the Fair Oaks Station. I'm excited about this opportunity to recognize and appreciate these important and dedicated public servants. If you attend FXCC I hope you'll be there at 9 AM this Sunday to help us say "It's five years later, but we still remember and appreciate you."

You're welcome for the rain. Last Thursday just before Ernesto hit, we had a sprinkler system installed in our yard. And then of course yesterday it rained even more. The only law we live by is Murphy's!

Currently our church is going through a process to refocus or maybe better put, to re-discover our mission and vision. What do you believe the mission of the church to be? And what is your vision for the church of Jesus Christ?

I'd be interested in knowing your thoughts. You can even sign in as anonymous (smile).

Certainly understand the frustration with the sprinkler system, ours was fried by lightning right before we left on a two week vacation, it took almost two weeks more to get them out to fix it, a few hundred dollars to repair and then they put us on water restrictions, so we could not water anyway!!!! So we had a totally dead lawn, a big bill and a perfectly good brand new sprinkler system, we could not use! Ahh Well, at least we are getting a little rain now!

I will have to ponder your question and get back to you later.

Blog on, Bruce. Your blog begins my day. Perhaps our goal as Christians could be: Servants serve! Our gratitude attitude compels action as well as worship.

Hi, Bruce,
I'm glad you are back to blogging (and didn't fall in the ocean...) I think Jesus gave the church our mission "to go out into all of the world and preach the gospel..." He also told us how to make sure there will be people who want to hear our preaching....He told us to "love one another", because people will know we are Christians by "our love for one another." We were encouraged by Jesus to love God with all of our hearts, souls, mind and strength...and our neighbors as ourselves. It seems clear that if we are going to fulfill God's mission for us, we will need to learn more of what it means to love God and what it means to love others--and reflect God's love for them. I think that means that individually and as a group we have to spend time in God's presence....seeking Him with all of our hearts. I don't think it's about frantic activity, rather surrendered will and a heart for God, each other, and people who are lost.
