Pastor’s Message – November 13, 2018

Marching On to the Beat I Drum

Last Sunday our children’s choir wonderfully led us in worship with the song, “I’m Gonna Sing When the Spirit Says Sing”. While they rehearsed before the service, I video recorded them. When showing the video to Bailey, our children’s choir director, later I said, “I love the way that none of them are clapping at the same time.” We laughed at how they clapped not at the assigned time but when they felt like clapping. Or perhaps we should say, they clapped when the Spirit said clap.
The children’s marching to the beat of their own drummer reminded me of a song my 7 year-old niece and I sang together on repeat last week while I visited her. “This is Me” is from the film, The Greatest Showman.
I am brave, I am bruised I am who I’m meant to be, this is me Look out ‘cause here I come And I’m marching on to the beat I drum I’m not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me At the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, how grateful I am for the unique rhythms God has placed in us. We are not cookie cutter Christians. The Spirit of God has breathed creatively into each of us. This is you. This is me. This is us. Let’s march on to the beat God drums in our hearts!

all good things to each of you,

Pastor Darian
