Alaska Moravian Youth Newsletter Fall 09

Guiding Thoughts:  The Lord is truly is blessing His work through the Alaska Moravian Church, as evidenced by the work He has been doing through the variety of individuals and committees that He has raised up to continue His work.  Even with the struggle of keeping a Christian Education Director, His work continues to thrive and prosper.  The youth leaders throughout the province are stepping up to continue meeting weekly and organizing and sponsoring youth gatherings, organizing gospel teams, to name a few.  The Lord's word is truly "alive and active and sharper than any two-edged sword...." (Heb. 4:12) and "will not return to 'Him' void, but will accomplish 'exactly' what it set out to do..." (Is. 55:10,11).

We can only priase Him for putting a burden on people's hearts for our youth.  Thanks for the youth leaders that responded to His call.  Throughout our lives we have heard pastors read words like, "...Go, then, and make disciples..." (Matt. 28:19,20) or "...do the work of an evangelist"...(II Tim. 4:5), which is just what the youth leaders are doing in your struggle to figure out how to reach and minister to youth.  He is indeed "...our strength in our weakness..." (II Cor. 12:9,10) when we cannot do anything but to depend entirely upon Him.  So, whether we 'plant seeds or water' that which was already planted, the most important thing is "....God gives the increase" (I Cor. 3:6), which means He blesses our efforts and does the rest, by making it grow and much more.

I am back on this job.  God only knows for our long.  I was flying for a local carrier for about three years.  No matter where we are as followers of Christ, we just don't put Him aside and act as though we don't belong to Him.  Even though life's circumstances may put us in different places, the Lord is still the center of our lives.  Even though you might run away like Jonah, He will send a big fish to eat you up or "break your legs to put you where He wants you" as someone once said.  So, I will be "flying low" for a while but hope to do a little of it once in a while.  The Lord did say "....Lo(w), I am with you always...":-)

Kristussaam Naklekutiin Nayurliten, AMEN!

(The Grace of Christ be with you)

Key-note Address Synod 2008

Is the Alaska Moravian Church Relevant? 

The need for unity in the church

Note:  The keynote address was given by The Rev. William H. Nicholson

 

Is the Moravian Church in Alaska relevant to its society?  Are we proactive in speaking to the problems of our people living in the villages.  Do we as a Church have a grasp of the issues that are hurting our people?   Do we have pastors speaking on the issues?  What is the Churches stance on suicide? Sexual abuse of minors? Domestic abuse? Incest?  Alcohol and Drugs? What do we feel officially when it comes to abortion, same sex marriages, or gay clergy?  When we see what is happening around us, are we being responsive as a Christian Church?
