August begins
August!  The final full month of summer.  Back-to-school sales.  Vacations, picnics, swimming, and baseball games.  Many from Ogden Baptist attended last night's baseball game at Frontier Field between the Rochester Red Wings and the Buffalo Bisons.  It was a beautiful night and the choir and friends enjoyed singing "God Bless America" for and with the crowd.  Alas, the Red Wings did not win the game but a good time was had by all. 

Backing up briefly to Sunday, many of our congregation worshipped with three other local congregations at Ogden Presbyterian Church with Touch of Brass Jazz ensemble leading the service.  They call themselves a Sacred Jazz Ensemble and only play worship/church events.  It was a joy filled service full of music, stories and Scripture.  The emphasis was on sharing with those in need when we find we have more than we need ourselves.  This leads me to ask the question, "How much is enough?"  How do we learn the difference between needs and wants?  Our culture often seems to encourage profligate ways and dwells on whether some people are deserving of the things they have on the one hand or of the things other people are given (if they qualify) on the other hand.  God gives to all without requiring any paper work to see if they qualify.  Jesus came and loved the poor and the outcast, the needy and the lost.  Whether governments can do the same is debatable, however, churches certainly must seek to show the kind of love that Jesus shared.  I would personally love to shed my tendency to judge others.  I need to focus more on my prayer life and less on my eating schedule.  Please pray for me that I may grow in love. 

May the peace of Christ rest with all in the coming week.  May Jesus' love dwell in our hearts and be poured out to those who have need.  Amen.
