Scott's Weekly Greeting ...

Several weeks ago, I introduced Flat Pastor to the congregation one Sunday morning. Flat Pastor stood beside me at the communion table as I shared the morning message.

As you can see, Flat Pastor is a caricature of me. He was created by one of the members of my previous church. I/He greeted people as they arrived for the farewell celebration on Saturday evening. You can also see that Flat Pastor is a two dimensional representation of me. He has broad shoulders and is quite tall ... almost seven feet! But he is lacking in depth. He is fun to look at but really cannot carry on much of a conversation. He does not take up much room in my office but I could barely fit him in my car.

Flat Pastor made for a good laugh that night and continues to amuse those who meet him, but nobody desires to be "flat" in their lives. We want to live full, deep lives ... multi-dimensional lives. Our depth is our uniqueness, our personality, our passions and interests. Our depth displays and reflects the many facets of the image of God.

Flat Pastor does not reflect any semblance of my character. No one can really learn much about me by looking at "him."

In this week's message, based upon Haggai 1:15b-2:9, we will explore what it means to be a multi-dimensional church. No church wants to a "Flat" Church. A congregational should also reflect the many facets of God. Join us Sunday morning at 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM for worship. All are welcome!
