January 8th 2021 KVAC Newsletter and Devotional
I recognize the need for a revamped newsletter to try to stay connected as a church. I am toying with the idea of only going once a month, as many ideas don’t change and it just looks the same every week. I realize that it was basically the same thing except the dates changing, so here is the first of several changes I am going to make, in the hopes of making it more worth your time. Your feedback is greatly appreciated in what could be more helpful for you as a reader. - Pastor Jake
While we all are concerned about what is going on in our country, I am still amazed at how peaceful and wonderful it can be within our community. It is important to keep an eye on what is going on, but I fear many people are being consumed and overwhelmed by the intensity of what is going on. Yesterday, as I was on my prayer walk with my dogs, someone driving by went really far around me seemly just for my assurance that they saw me and they were looking out for me. I smiled and waved, and the driver did the same. Three more cars past, I decided to smile and wave. Every single one smiled and waved back. I actually felt myself becoming a bit emotional when a couple, seeing me a long way off switched to the other side of the road without a sidewalk, giving me the obviously easier path, seeing I had two squirrely pups on the leash. As they were passing on the other side I thanked them and told them that it was kind of them to do so, they both smiled and the man even turned around to tell me that he hopes that I have a good day. I did.
Each small act of kindness by nature has goodness in it, which gives us hope, which has the opportunity to override the sense of doom. I believe this is a fingerprint that God often leaves us. It is how He has always worked and how He still works. He has always used the weak to shame the strong, the small to conquer the mighty, the simple to confound the wise and strange ways of changing the world. This is how we fight evil. This is how we resist.
"Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God."
– 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 NLT
