“Since my youth, God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.”
I grew up in the Methodist Church in Brazil, and my parents made me go to church every Sunday. It was boring for me. The fun part of church, though, was when I met my friends for Sunday school and after the Sunday Service. And it was there and then, at a youthful age, that I learned to love God from watching leaders in the church loving God so passionately, both in words and deeds. Like the writer of Psalm 71, I too can say ‘to this day’ I declare God’s marvelous deeds!
This Sunday, Aug. 13, Worship will be led by our very own Crossfire Youth. It is important they continue to find their space and meaning in our midst so that the seed of love for God and neighbor will take roots in their hearts and minds, and become a thriving, fruitful tree of life in their adulthood.
See you at the place of renewal this Sunday!
