The noise, of course, last night was the hustle and bustle of kids running around with three different groups to get to, pizza to eat, and friends to see. When you take the tables and chairs out of our fellowship hall, even on a rather hot and sticky night… you can run around for a long way in there. On Sunday the “noise” was the choir was back, Sunday School was back, a lot of you were back. With respect to the choir (who may be offended by the word “noise” to describe their beautiful anthems), we all made a lot of good noise together.
On days like Sunday and Wednesday, far from being distracting or even irritating, the noise was encouraging and inspiring. On days like these the noise is a sign of health and vitality and if you listen closely, hope. There are a lot of great things happening here; sometimes you have to look and listen closely to hear the sound they create, sometimes… thankfully… like Sunday and Wednesday they are so noisy we can’t help but hear them. It’s important in these days and times in our lives and in the life of EPUMC for us to listen for hope.
Keep the Faith,
