Stepping Out of the Race
Bible Text: Isaiah 43:19 (NIV) | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | May 26, 2019, will be the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500 where the greatest drivers in racing will compete in “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” All the racers and their teams have but one goal in mind that is to not only complete the 200 laps around the 2.5-mile track but to take home the Borg-Warner Prize. For over 100 years the basics of the Indy 500 have not changed much. Drivers go round and around through the 4 turns until they get the signal that the race is over. They take pitstops to gas up, change the tires and ensure they will have what they need to finish the race. On Sunday we will look at the analogy of how our own lives often resemble the Indy 500. That is to say, we go round and around working our way to the big finish on a narrow track. But is that really what God intended? Are we really designed to be doing the same things over and over looking out for the same 4 turns? Or are we called to get off the track we know and explore the uncharted territory where we all find we are winners?
On Sunday we will be looking at the efforts of those who have stepped out of the race to be present and active in the ways God is working to bring food to the hungry, healing to the sick and hope to the hopeless. Join us Sunday for “Stepping Out of the Race”
