The year has only just begun and already there has been a large amount of news and events that have rocked our world. From the continued discussions around the future of our denomination to the fires and flooding in Australia and the earthquakes in Puerto Rico, it has been something of a roller coaster ride so far in 2020. So, with all of the drama and whatnot, what if we try to start February out with a little fun and whimsy?
For the month of February, we will be using a sermon series focused on the stories and lessons of Dr. Seuss, tied together with relevant Scripture. Now it is true that Dr. Seuss Day, a holiday celebrating the birthday of Theodor Seuss Geisel is held annually on March 2, there is much more to the celebration of this man and his creations. The United Way is holding its annual Dr. Seuss Reading Day on February 28th and often many schools celebrate the work of Dr. Seuss during February. It also works out better for us as February ends with Ash Wednesday and March is our Lenten season. So for the month of February, we will be engaging with some of Seuss’ all-time classic stories and the lessons they offer to us, as well as some important pieces of Scripture that connect with these same ideas and lessons.
So, I look forward to seeing you on Sunday mornings, at either 8:30 A.M. or 11:00 A.M. for our time with Dr. Seuss this month and a fun and engaging adventure into the creative world of rhymes and life lessons for all people, all ages, and more. May God continue to bless you this new year and may you continue to listen for and act on God’s calling in your life.
