From the Pastor


God Was Here, and I Was Out to Lunch


Way back in the book of Genesis, Jacob made a powerful and poignant statement that has resounded across the ages. He said, “Surely the Lord is in this place--and I did not know it!” James Moore offers a modern-day interpretation to this, “God was here, and I was out to lunch!” Moore argues that these statements resound a painful truth, mainly that God comes near us, and we are so busy, so preoccupied, so set in our ways, or so caught up in our own agenda that we don’t recognize God; we don’t sense God’s presence.


To illustrate his point, Moore tells us this fairy-tale: “A seasoned senior angel was giving a brand-new freshman angel a tour of the heavens. The freshman angel was wide-eyed and awestruck as he saw the vastness and majesty of God’s incredible universe. When they came to the Milky Way, the mature senior angel said to the freshman angel, ‘Come over here, son, I want to show you something special. Look down there! That tiny planet is called Earth. I looks rather insignificant from here, doesn’t it? It looks so small and so inconsequential, but something quite remarkable happened there some years ago. You see, the people of Earth had gotten off the track a bit. They were missing the whole point of their existence. They were missing the meaning of life. So God sent his only Son into that world to save the people and to teach them what God meant life to be for them on Earth.’


‘Wow! That’s amazing!’ said the freshman angel excitedly. ‘You mean to tell me that God’s Son actually visited that little planet? How pleased the people of Earth must have been to receive him! I can just imagine that they must have had a great celebration for him on Earth.’


‘No,’ the senior angel said quietly. Then, with tears glistening in his eyes, he said, ‘No--they tried to kill him! They were so wrapped up in their old, rigid ways of doing things that when God’s Son presented some new ideas, they resented him, and they tried to silence him. Blinded by the old, they missed th

e new. Surely the Lord was in that place, and they did not know it. God was there, and they were out to lunch!’”
How often do we miss seeing God’s plan for our lives because we are too busy trying to pursue our own plan? How often do we miss God’s presence because we are so stuck in our ways, with our set idea of how God’s plan should be, that we miss God altogether?


Take some time this month to reflect on how God is moving in your life, and where you might be out to lunch, so to speak. What areas of your life blind you to God’s presence? In what ways are you so stuck in your head that you miss God’s call to action in your life? Together, we will continue to discern God’s will and presence in our ministry at WPC.

Blessings,
Rev. Audrey

CAMP BUC – MAKING MEMORIES FOR A LIFETIME The wilderness comes alive at Camp Buc as youngsters swim, hike, canoe, fish, garden, cook, sing, play and worship. The program leaders and young adult counselors weave Christian faith and practices into each day. Children work and play collaboratively with respect, teamwork and responsibility. With each activity, children are given room to be young in the face of God’s creation, to have a safe place to be themselves, to appreciate beauty and to live in the awe and wonder of childhood. Counselors live with the children and share the love of Christ in their fun-loving guidance. While having relaxed summer fun with friends, children grow in their understanding of stewardship, compassion and community. Camp Buc is definitely the place to make memories for a lifetime. Give your child the opportunity to grow and learn this summer.

Register them for a week at Camp Buc today. Contact LeAnne White at 864-288-5774, Monday –Thursday 9-2 or lwhite@foothillspresbytery.org. To check out the fun of summer camp, and for more info visit www.campbuc.org and watch the Camp Buc Video on the home page.
