Sixth Annual Service of Remembrance

Lincoln Christian Church will host the Sixth Annual Service of Remembrance
on Sunday, November 1, 2009, at 4:00 p.m. in the Church Sanctuary at 204
North McLean Street. The purpose in providing this yearly gathering is
threefold: to celebrate Godís gift of life and to worship Him for it; to
honor the lives of loved ones who have died, particularly during the past
year; and to provide a corporate opportunity for loved ones to process,
express and heal from their grief. A special part of the service will be
a time when each person who has died will be named individually and a
candle will be lit in his or her memory and honor. A devotional will be
brought by Dr. Paul Boatman, Professor of Pastoral Care and Counseling and
Seminary Dean at Lincoln Christian University, during the service. Music
will be coordinated by Tim Searby, Minister of Worship at the church.
Members of the Wellness Ministry Team will also take part in leading the
service. A reception will be held after the service in the Fireside Room
at the Church. The service is open to the public, and everyone is invited
to attend. If anyone would like to have a loved one recognized during the
service, the name of the person and a photo can be sent to
remember@lincolnchristianchurch.org or delivered to the church office
prior to October 22.

Recent Spiritual Life Articles

Present Yourself Back to God

 

Ken Read in his book Created to Worship tells us: ďAnother aspect of worship is to actively respond to His nature and His deeds, by presenting ourselves back to God. Romans 12 urges us, after taking a good, long look at the mercies of God and the forgiveness that He has given us, to turn the gift around and give ourselves back to Him as living sacrifices, which is our spiritual act of worship.

Rough Seas
 

The most powerful enemy of the Christian is fear. Fear is the one thing which can most easily undermine our faith and overwhelm our desire to serve and follow Jesus. We may have a loved one who is behaving like a boor, but we won't confront him. Why? Because we are afraid he will be angry at us. We may see payday loan shops littering our town and functionally stealing from our neighbors, but we won't challenge them.

Healing

 

This healing story is working on several different levels. First, Jesus is healing a man who had been sick for 38 years. The man was lying by the Bethzatha pool, known in those days for its healing powers, but he had no one to help him into the pool. Jesus asks the man if he would like to be made well, the man of course says "yes," and Jesus calmly tells him to take his mat, stand up and walk.

Nourishment
 

It is the only miracle story to appear in all 4 Gospels. It is the one story almost everyone knows outside of the birth story and the crucifixion. It is the feeding of the five thousand. So, what's the big deal? Why all the repeat this particular story so many times? Well, I think there is a simple reason for that. In this story we find the richness and depth of who Jesus is. We see the compassion, the power, the love. We find a powerful metaphor for Holy Communion

The Living Water

 

These days most of us probably spend a lot of time thinking about what we don't have. Most of us have less money than we did 18 months ago. Most of us are older than we'd like to be. Most of us have lost someone that we wish we could have back. Most of us don't have the car or television or house we want. Most of us look around our lives and we see what is absent. And that is because our lives are filled with things that are finite, that have limits. Not to bring you down, but someday, everything we have will be gone.

Miracles

 

"Now standing there were six stone waters jars for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to them, 'Fill the jars with water.' And they filled them up to the brim. He said to them, 'Now draw some out, and take it to the chief steward.' So they took it. When the steward tasted the water that had become wine...he said, 'everyone serves the good wine first and the inferior wine after the guests have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now.'"-John 2: 6-10

The Gift of Faith
 

Have you heard these words before? They are both very familiar and very controversial. In this passage Jesus is trying to explain his ministry to one of the religious leaders, a man named Nicodemus, who has come to see him under the cover of darkness

The Holy Spirit

 

The work of the Holy Spirit is and always has been mysterious. No one really understands it and no one can predict its movements in the world. Yet despite this lack of understanding the Spirit remains at the core of the Christian life because it is our tangible connection to God.

"Love is too Familiar a Word"

 

There is a poem entitled, "Love is too Familiar a Word" and when I approach passages like this it often pops into my head. Over and over again we hear two things as Christians; God loves us and we should love other people. We hear these words so often, and we are told of God's love so frequently, that the saying becomes too familiar. The word "love" loses its power and becomes a cliche with little weight or influence in our lives. And when this happens it is tragic.
