Stand Firm – Hold Fast

In Paul’s letter to the Thessalonians, he speaks of being “shaken” – like an earthquake, a series of unexpected, disorienting events divided his congregation. But Paul also encourages them that “there is a way beyond being shaken”. We have suffered our own earthquake in recent days. None of us expected it, none of us were prepared for it. But as in Paul’s day, healing and hope don’t grow out of dwelling and examining the past. Paul reminds us of the central truth – we are not the church of the rector, the bishop, the wardens or the vestry – we are the church of God, called to glorify Christ. So now, how are we going to go forward and fulfill that call?
