Over the last few days I have had the opportunity to be present at a number of worship services. In the last four days, I attended a funeral, participated in communion with a diverse group of Christians while at a concert, witnessed the baptism of one Beacon student and her four siblings, and attended my own church where our pastor preached and led communion for the first time as a fully ordained pastor within the Christian Reformed Church.
Our throughline for the month is God-worshipping. What struck me the most in the varied services that I happened to attend was the common thread of God’s sovereignty – the acknowledgement that Jesus is Lord of all things, all times, all places and all people. This is a central belief of the Christian faith, and one that is common across Christian denominations. Jesus is Lord of all things. He alone is worthy of our worship.
We will be exploring the theme of God-worshipping at our Thanksgiving Chapel on Wednesday. It should be a great chapel with lots of student involvement. As always, parents and visitors are welcome to attend.
