Now Preaching!

New Sermon Series (4 Weeks) Begins January 22nd

"Our Firm Foundation" -- The Constant Epiphany

By Rev. Mario Bolivar

Generally speaking, people desire growth or improvement in one area or another; however, about half of those who want growth or improvement are unwilling to make preparations or take action that leads to their goals. Articles and available studies say that people who set New Year's goals don't meet them (Big Surprise, Right?!) In fact, of the 41% of Americans who make New Year's resolutions, only 9% were successful in keeping them.

Now, this might be elusive to some, but even some Research can predict which day you will quit your New Year's goals. Strava documented over 800 million user-logged activities in 2019 and found that most people toss in the towel on January 19, which Strava succinctly dubs "Quitter's Day."

Let's consider that it is wrong to worry about the outcome of New Year Resolutions. In the same way, let us also think it is wrong to believe that Resolutions don't matter. Extremes are dangerous. Do we need to produce a laundry list of things we need to fix or enhance at some random moment in the time-measuring system we've developed? Not really... In the same way, should we avoid having resolutions or goals? No, I think not.

So what are we proposing? We are proposing to look beyond ourselves. After all, we are not at the center of the universe; we are part of it. Let us center ourselves on the idea that God sits at the center of everything. Let us begin with the assertion of the constant epiphany that comes from God! Epiphany is a time of revelation! Jesus revealed himself to the Israelites and the Gentiles, and God still does it to this day! Let us explore four ways that God reveals Godself to us... So that we can be centered in God's presence. In these "four ways," we will find the balance that we seek and dwell in the presence of God by God's grace forever.
