We Are Connected

Our theme this term is ‘We Are Connected’.
Throughout scripture, we learn that we are designed to connect.  God did not create us to be alone.  God created everything and said it is good, but He then looked at Adam and said it is not good for man to be alone.  The Trinity shows us that we are designed for connection.  It has always been God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.  This does not mean that there are three Gods, but one God.  Three distinct persons so united and connected that they are one.  Jesus said that the greatest command is to love God and love your neighbour.  You cannot do one of these commands without doing the other.  Flowing out of your love for God is this command to love others.  God’s # 1 commandment in the new covenant is all about connecting.

1.     Connect to God.
2.     Connect to others.

We hope to develop these connections in our classes this term as we learn about the Church and the Communion of Saints.
