Hey there, Prince of Peace! Do you love abstract, theological terms? I sure do. But I know they aren’t for everyone.
If only there was a term that meant something to our daily lives.
If only we had an easily accessible shared experience to help explain it.
Well guess what: There is. We do.
Proleptic - endeavours for a convergence of theology and modern science by proclaiming that the world we discover is a world where creation is still going on.
That’s a big idea and we could spend hours breaking it down, but here’s one way to think about it. We are living now in the beginnings of Covid vaccine distribution in our country. And because of that we are all - whether we have the shot ourselves or not - getting glimpses of a future where everyone is vaccinated and we are free from any fear of this terrible disease.
God’s creation is still happening, and in our presence.
And now that we have learned the word proleptic, let’s make some proleptic announcements about how your loving staff is making plans, based on the glimpses we’ve had so far, for future plans at Prince of Peace.
RSCP is going to be growing in the near future and expanding into more community creation activities, which may also help us stake a claim as a larger community gathering place as new residences are developed nearby.
Indoor worship is scheduled to begin Sunday, July 4th; this will depend entirely upon county opening protocols and worship safety.
Even when indoor worship starts, we will continue to be an online worship community also. So, for those of you who have been joining us from across the country, you will still have access to our services - and so will anyone using our sanctuary for their sacred event. If you are interested in helping that team of volunteers, please contact Pastor Sara.
