Season of Creation Worship Series
 
For the month of September, the “Season of Creation” worship series will focus thematically on the Lectionary readings from Jeremiah. In the life of the local church, September can be a hectic month: many of us are squeezing in their last vacation around Labor Day; while at the same time, many church choirs are resuming their standard schedule, and Christian Education usually has some kind of kick-off (i.e. “Rally Day”). This collection of readings from the book of Jeremiah will be certain to challenge us as we to re-assimilate to the rhythm of a more robust church activity life.

    JOY: The Flip Side of Justice
    We continue our three-week series on “Joy: The Flip Side of Justice.”
     
    Jeremiah has been called a “prophet of doom” because he announces strong words of judgment to the people of God and gives reason why judgment and devastation come to the nation of Israel. Jeremiah, as God’s spokesman, calls for repentance, for the people have been unfaithful to God’s teaching. Expressions that describe the people’s unfaithfulness include: lying, inability to correct bad behavior, and apostasy, a particularly strong word depicting total abandonment of following the rule of God.

    JOY:The Flip Side of Justice
    August is often seen as the month of greatest transition in the liturgical calendar. Families begin to settle back into a predictable routine in preparation for back-to-school activities, fall festivals, and a time of harvest. Summer travels and vacations have presented opportunities for respite from regular, hectic routines. At the same time, the change of pace often has an impact on the spiritual and ecclesiological rhythms of our lives. For that reason, August can be a tremendous season to reignite faith communities.
    Our primary theme provides myriad images depicting ways that justice and joy can and must coexist. One writer, Rev. Doug Ruffle, says it this way, “Joy is found when we, as the people of God, put our faith into action by pursuing justice and championing the oppressed” as demonstrated in this month’s lectionary texts. While the lectionary calendar refers to this last portion of the liturgical season as Ordinary (ordered) Time—the longest season of the liturgical year (33 to 34 Sundays)—this time of refreshing might be more akin to “extra”-ordinary time. Ordinary time accounts for Christ’s life, miracles, and teachings, all illumined by his Resurrection. It is in this season that Christian people move and mature through ordinary time (tempus per annum), the complete Mystery of Christ! You will note how our biblical texts continue to hold this mystery before us. Our hope is that families will intentionally focus on these readings by not only reading them, but also by living into them with an expectation of a harvest of hope, faith, and grace.

    True Liberty
    In Leviticus, God instructs the Israelites to proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. as Christians today, we have the responsibility to also proclaim liberty throughout our land. But the liberty we proclaim is the one and only liberty given by our God to all humanity through love.

    Elisha is dedicated to Elijah’s prophetic ministry and does not want to see Elijah go away. So he clings to him. He clings to Elijah on the journey to Bethel, even though Elijah advises him to “stay here.” Elisha again clings to Elijah—this time more boldly—as they journey to the Jordan, despite Elijah’s command to “stay here.”
