Newsletter – January 2020

This January we will be exploring what true forgiveness looks like. Jesus teaches us great ways to understand forgiveness, and it is not as easy as the old line, “Forgive and forget.”
Forgiveness takes practice, and we invite you to join us in learning forgiveness this January.

Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, December 29, 2019

One service this Sunday, Dec 29 at 10:15am

People of Shiloh, 

On Christmas Eve we heard the words below read in our services as you read them again I invite you to remember who we are as a people of God.

The prophetic leader of Central America, Archbishop Oscar Romero,  wrote about Christmas, not long before he was killed in front of the altar of his church, assassinated because he dared work for justice for the poor.  In a work titled God With Us, he said:

No one can celebrate a genuine Christmas without being truly poor 
The self-sufficient, the proud 
those who, because they have everything, look down on others, 
those who have no need even of God – 
for them there will be no Christmas.    

Only the poor, the hungry,
those who need someone to come on their behalf,    
will have that someone.     
That someone is God,       
Emmanuel, God-with-us.   

Without poverty of spirit, there can be no abundance of God  

As we leave Christmas, and we remember that Christ is born in us each day I invite us to wonder:  What do these words mean to us this coming year?  How do they invite us as Christians to live out our call to follow Christ?  How do we know the poverty that allows God to come be with us?  

Blessings in your ponderings,
Pastor Tyler

VISTATION MINISTRY – In the past, one of the Visitation Volunteers visited both hospitals every Monday- Friday.  The goal was to provide spiritual support for anyone from Shiloh who happened to be in the hospital.  Many options were available to the patient and/or the family: prayers, anointing, communion and support in general.  These same options continue to be available but a call must be made to the church to notify a member of the Visitation Team to go to the hospital (656-0050).  The Visitation Team has lost several members and currently the team is very small.  PLEASE call.  This is a very important ministry for all involved.
