And the city has no need of sun or moon to sine on it, for the glory of God is its light and its lamp is the Lamb. Rev 21:23

  John of Patmos is given a vision of the New Jerusalem, of the complete victory of Christ over darkness and suffering. In his vision, the glory of God outshines even the sun and the moon over the city.

Rockford may be a much smaller place than Jerusalem, but I believe we are called to share the light of Christ and the glory of God wherever we are. When I worked at an Orthodox Jewish school in Pittsburgh, my colleagues often encouraged each other to "Make here your Jerusalem." Make here sacred. Make here merciful. Make here alive with praise to God. Make here a place of rest for the weary, hope for the broken, joy for the mourning, bread for the hungry, and love for all God's children.

I have seen the light of Christ and the glory of God in your wonderful welcome of Ben and I to town. I saw it the night people rushed to clean up the church basement from the flood. I see it in the growing excitement over Vacation Bible School. In how many ways can we glorify God by sharing the love of Christ with our community? In how many ways can we invite Rockford into our church? In how many ways can we take church outside to the people of Rockford?

Thank you for a full, surprising, joyful first month. I look forward to many more.

The grace and peace of Christ our Lord be yours.

Pastor Katy
