Right Here...Right Now...

May 8, 2024

Leadership Notes

     I begin with a sad announcement. The people of Covenant Church have, once again, failed to disappoint me. How am I going to learn to deal with disappointment, if it doesn’t happen every now-and-then?

     Food ran out at the Cinco de Mayo Celebrate Recovery Taco-Palooza on Sunday. A good time was had by all. I love the way we fellowship and support transformational ministries. To paraphrase an old song, “Right here…right now…there’s no place on earth I’d rather be.”

     “God is Good All the Time…Because All the Time God is Good.” That’s an important affirmation for our church. It captures the depth of faith we have in the sovereign will of God as it is manifested in His unfolding plan for our church from our founding in 2012. We’ve come a long way. And it should come as no surprise.

     You know how, when you’ve seen the same thing over and over, sometimes it’s like you don’t really see it anymore? If someone gets new glasses or a haircut or trims a beard, how many folks don’t initially notice? Funny how that works.

     We do have some observant folks here at our church. For Sunday morning, I tweaked one of the message boards that’s behind the praise band. I was impressed with the number of people who noticed. Was I wrong or right for doing it? Probably. I was pleasantly surprised by how many of you noticed. If you didn’t notice, I’ve hidden some “Easter Eggs” in other places in our building. A little lightheartedness is never a bad thing.

     Finally, it’s funny how Take Out can mean food…dating…or murder. English is weird.

     And now, your Moment of Spurgeon:

“When Jesus died on the cross the veil in the temple was torn

from top to bottom so that big sinners like me might fit through.”


     With Much Love and Affection,
