What Now?

On Good Friday, we mourned Jesus death. On Easter, we rejoiced in Jesus’ resurrection. This Sunday, Ascension Sunday, we celebrate Jesus’ ascension into heaven.
Jesus’ disciples had lived alongside Jesus and learned from him. After Jesus’s death and resurrection, he met his disciples on the Road to Emmaus, in the Upper Room, on shore of Lake Tiberius. Now, Jesus departs from the world and goes to heaven.
I can imagine the disciples thinking to themselves, what now? What do we do now that Jesus is risen and not walking among us to show us and tell us what to do?
We also find ourselves wondering what now? What is Jesus calling us to do in this time and place?
Our church is taking time to prayerfully consider what God intends for us. Part of how we are discerning “what now?” is through an exciting pilot program, Next Level Innovations (NLI). Will you take time to pray for our church and the NLI process and engage in conversations, through the NLI Innovations Weekend on October 27th-29th, to consider what God’s answer is to this question…What now?
Pastor Devon
