For the next few weeks we’re going to have a bit of a change of pace—we’ll be doing a sermon series on the natural world and its connection to the spiritual world. This Sunday we’ll be talking about the least alive parts of the natural world—the rocks and minerals. In future weeks we’ll talk about vegetation and animals. This Sunday we’re also going to talk about the structure and design of it all with maybe a little chemistry and physics thrown in for fun. The goal is that you’ll come away from the sermon looking at the world around you with a fresh perspective.

Old age can be a time of great reflection: looking back on what has been, looking forward with wonder to what is to come after death. It can also be a time of trial and tribulation: as the body and mind fail, doubt and despair can creep in. Moses, at the end of his life, was able to reflect on the past and from that gracefully hand over his wisdom to the next generation. As we look at this concluding stage of life in this world, we will look at how we too can gracefully age and handover to the next generation.

On 9 October 2020, Cecilie Francina (Buss) Young peacefully passed away at the age of 104.

If you know Cecilie, you’ll know that she has been ready for some years to pass on and so we can celebrate with her that she is finally done with her earthly life and can move on to the spiritual world where so many of her loved ones already are.

In our series on the stages of life, this Sunday we come to the stage of adulthood. We will follow the story of Moses as he is called by the Lord to do something great. And we will also see how he tries to get out of it any way that he can. Moses eventually grows into one of the greatest leaders of the Children of Israel but he also experiences a lot of ups and downs, victories and defeats along the way. Such is adulthood and the Lord’s Word can help us to find our way through it.

This week we continue our exploration of the stages of life as seen in the story of Moses. As a young man Moses faced the challenges of putting his ideals into practice. On the one hand he could see with clarity the injustice his people faced. On the other hand, he struggled to reconcile how his own people treated each other, and in the end was forced to flee to a foreign land. These experiences illustrate well the dichotomy of the teenage years: a growing sense of right and wrong, tempered by growing awareness of the complexity of life.
