Coudn't think of a title that wasn't lame...

Two months in and I think I know where I am. I don’t know about you but I still feel really new to Fieldstone. I’m still learning names, trying to understand the rhythm of the New River Valley and I still have two boxes in my office to unpack!
I don’t have to tell you that September is full of newness, with back to school meetings, finding a new routine, and new opportunities. Our son is going to preschool today and he’s fired up for his new adventure. He’s already picked out his dinosaur t-shirt and can’t wait to get out on the playground! (I just hope he actually does some work!)
Things are changing. We do know that the only thing constant is change and as that change will open up new opportunities for our community to love God and love people. God says through the Prophet Isaiah, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” God was talking about doing a new thing, creating a new way, a way that spoke mercy, justice, hope and love. This is our God and this is an exciting time to share in ministry.
Look for the ways that God is doing a “new thing” in you this week. Consider taking a step in faith as you consider joining one of our new small group bible studies or finding a new way to serve and share in the community.
With God all things are possible and all things can be made new!
Speak On IT!
