How easily do you accept or even embrace changes in your life? I've got a mixed track record in that area - I like some things to change and bristle or even stubbornly hold out against others. For instance, when my alma mater, North Park College, became North Park University, I didn't really have a problem with it. There were many positive reasons for the change and it's been a positive move for the school. On the other hand, I haven't quite adjusted to my former church changing their name from Mercer Island Covenant Church to Evergreen Covenant Church. I understand their reasoning, but it's hard to re-train yourself to refer to it by it's new name.
Speaking of changes, take a look at this card trick.
As we continue in the storyline of scripture with the story of Abraham this Sunday (Genesis 12-22 and chapter 2 of The Story) we'll see how Abraham is affirmed for his faith in God... and then proves to not be that faith-filled in his decisions. The great news is that God still accepts us in our imperfect following. In fact, he chooses us even though we probably wouldn't choose ourselves!
I hope to see you this Sunday, September 21st!
