Filling In for Christ

It has been a homecoming for me to return to Rockford and rejoin your loving and welcoming community.  I have been asked to fill in as interim pastor until just the right new pastor is found.

Your welcome to me was truly warm and it has been a joy to greet old friends and make some new ones.  I am not sure how long our "interim" plans will go on.  God and the church leadership will find the right person at the right time to lead this church communithy into the future.  Until then I hope I can continue filling in with you.

Perhaps we could say that we are each are called to fill in for Christ ourselves.  Christ has called and prepared each of us to be his representatives in the circles in which we move.  Christ's time on earth was short, but God's plan involved training his followers to continue the work of inviting all into God's family.

So it seems we are all filling in for Christ.  The early followers of Jesus called him, Master.  In the Jewish tradition the Master was a teacher, one who taught by example.  As the disciples observed the mireacles and healings Jesus perfomed, they also learned that they, too, were able to do wondrous things on His behalf.

May we each learn from the lessons and example of Jesus; and may we each accept our tole as Christ's hand and fee here on earth.  Keep on keepin' on - filling in for Christ!

Yours in joint service,

Pastor Kathy
