A Faithful Season

 

The University of Memphis vs. Ole’ Miss football game is just one indicator that the fall season is here. The “Operation Backpack” final event was an early sign that it was “back to school” time. Now our own children and college-age bound are beginning to settle in their surroundings and responsibilities. For our new college students, they are now experiencing a whole new season of their life. Labor Day has traditionally been a marker that turns our attention from the summer months to a new season.

 

We turn our heads from summertime leisure, recreations and travel and from generally taking a break from previous fall-spring schedules to focus on a new season ahead. As we transition into this new season of our lives, so do we also transition into a new or renewed season in the life of the church. It is the time where we “re-gather” or return to a more routine time in our worship and in our parish life together. It is a time where we “re-gather”, “re-focus” and re”-commit” to a more faithful discipleship by a more faithful living and attendance in our church community at St. Philip.

 

In fact, this remains our “holy obligation” to worship regularly, to give generously of our time, talents and treasures, to participate in Christian education and formation and to take care of the needs of others through a faith community. This is crucial to our own spiritual well-being and to accomplish the mission of the Church.

 

September 8, 2019, is our official “Gathering Day” or “Rally Day” where we gather and rally the beginning of a new season in our parish life together. We will celebrate who we are and the various ministries of our church that you might join or support. The Adult Education and the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd programs will begin the following Sunday on September 15, 2019.

 

Next Sunday, let us gather together in worship and fellowship to prepare ourselves for an upcoming season of faithful living in the life of the church. See you there and see you in the Christian Education class the following Sunday!
