Some questions for you to consider in preparation for our time together on Sunday:
What is important to you about a celebration?
How are your celebrations organized? Are they intricately planned? Or do you throw caution to the wind and hope for spontaneous fun?
What are your most treasured celebrations in your life and why?
What are the treasured celebrations in the life of First Lutheran Community Church and why?
In our Bible reading from 1 Kings 8: 1-8, we encounter a big celebration where the Ark of the Covenant has reached a long time resting place in a brand new Solomon's Temple. The celebration is BIG. What can this celebration teach us about our transitions, both personal and at First Lutheran Community Church? Maybe you have an answer for that already, but our exploration of God's Word will hopefully help our thinking, prayers and actions.
