We, evangelicals in the PC(USA), certainly find ourselves living in interesting times!!!
As I've been reflecting on where I am and where our church is in relation to our denomination, there are way more questions than there are answers.
But these things I know:
1. God is in charge. No matter what, that will never change. Thank God for that!
2. God doesn't expect any of us to have the answers. What God does expect is our faithfulness.
There are times we can be absolutely faithful and still have no clue what to do about the future. That's where many of us find ourselves today.
- We hate the thought of leaving the denomination we have been a part of for so long, and yet, continue to find ourselves feeling pushed out. But we don't even know where we're to go. Such is the life of an evangelical in the PC(USA) landscape today.
3. But it's okay that we don't know what the future holds.
Abraham didn't know where he was going when God called him either. He just knew that God told him that God would show the way...one step at a time. And that was enough for him to embark on a journey that would eventually change everything.
I'm good with that.
I have no idea what the immediate future holds.
I have no idea how everything's going to shake itself out.
But I know God's in charge and that he will continue to show the way.
That's all I need to know.
