Each of us is telling a story with how we live, but the best stories are the ones that make the “Kessid” love of God made known in our world.
In Scripture, “Kessid” is the Hebrew word for God’s Steadfast Love. The best way to understand the meaning is by thinking of a mother’s love. We can fight it, turn our back to it, run away from it, but a true mother will never stop loving or pursuing relationship with us-just as God will never, ever stop loving us unconditionally.
This is the story we want to tell as a community.
Our stories come together as a part of God’s story.
Because we are a part of God’s story, we all have a role to play.
We tell the story through the things we build with our hands, the lives we touch, and the art that we create.
Mothers and Fathers tell the story of unconditional love.
Friends tell the story of belonging and grace.
Grandparents tell the story of service and sacrifice.
Children tell the story of joy and wonder,
and each of us tells the story of the uniqueness of God’s creation.
The Holy Spirit breathes life into our stories, and Scripture tells the ultimate story of Love. Through this Love we are bound together in the greatest story ever told.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness has not overcome it.” John 1:1-5
How we live into God’s Story can be summed up in three words:
Share, Show & Serve.
