We’ve never been this way before…Uncharted Territory
Bible Text: Joshua 3:1 – 5 , Philippians 3:13 – 14 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | When a sailor comes across land that is not on the map, he refers to the land as uncharted. Until a few months ago, the concept that there are still uncharted territories seemed unlikely because we felt as though we had a handle on what was “out there”. With satellites, drones, deep-sea vehicles, and private companies heading into space, many of us thought the only thing left to explore was beyond our galaxy. Yet, this year has taught us otherwise. With a pandemic, social unrest, and a struggling economy, all at the same time, it is clear we have “never been this way before.” When the SpaceX rocket made its way to the space station last week, that journey seemed manageable in comparison to the new landscapes we are entering into right here on earth.
This Sunday, as we step into the next phase reopening our communities, and begin a new conversation on issues of inclusion in our country; The Garden will explore how God has worked in the past when it came to uncharted territories. When God calls us on a new journey, we are given all the tools we need to live into a new way of being.
