Leadership Notes


{The Meaning of Life}


If you haven't already done so, you really ought to connect with our digital Advent calendar. Each day is a wonderful surprise. The music. The devotions. And seeing Covenant Church people/families we miss, for one reason or another, during the shenanigans of the past nine months. What a gift!


Words cannot properly express my love and appreciation for how you live out your devotion to Jesus Christ through Covenant Church. You are faithful in worship. You are faithful in reading and learning from God's Word. You are faithful in your financial support {even in challenging times, when we might not see immediate results}. You are faithful in loving our community. You are faithful in how you help others. Your faithfulness in worship is expressed through online or in-person worship. Oh, how I love how we all are making reasonable and responsible decisions! This is all evidence of God working in our lives. We do not boast…we give all the glory to God.


Is it just me, or is it time for political signs to disappear?


As soon as it's available to us common people, my wife and I will be the first in line to get a Covid-19 vaccine.


Abigail Dodds, Christian author and mother of five, writes: "Evangelicalism needs God's Word. And it needs local, faithful Bible-soaked {pastors} to shepherd God's people. It needs to be done with 'God told me' celebrities and 'God told me' preachers. The only time I want my pastor to say, 'God told me' is if he's reading aloud from the Bible."
