Giving as an Expression of Joy-filled Gratitude
- Harvey Yoder
Iit's easy to see a contrast between the celebrative way God's people were to financially support their new nation (a kingdom governed by priests rather than by monarchs), and the way we tend to fulfill our financial obligations to our congregations, community and governments today.
     The annual offering of fresh produce from their newly gifted land involved a liturgy in which each Israelite household prepared a basket of the best and first of their harvest. Upon bringing this cornucopia of plenty to the priest, they were to announce the following (paraphrased):
"I hereby acknowledge that I have inherited the gracious and undeserved gift of a land that God promised our ancestors."
     The priest then received the basket of fresh produce and placed it on the altar, after which grateful and blessed Israelites were to recite:  
Our ancestor Jacob was a wandering and landless Aramean
who went down to Egypt and lived there,
he and his small family,
but there they multiplied and we became many.
The Egyptians abused us and subjected us to cruel slavery.
We cried out to the God of our ancestors
who listened to our desperate prayers,
who took pity on us in our terrible plight,
and brought us out of Egypt
by great and miraculous means,
and brought us to this grace-filled place,
a land of abundant milk and honey.
So here we are with the best of the firstfruits 
of what the land God has given us has produced.
(paraphrase of Deuteronomy 26:5-10)

Family of Hope—Who Are We?

We are followers of Jesus. We believe in one God as revealed most fully in the life, teaching,  death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We base our faith on the Bible. We do not claim to understand or to live it perfectly, but we embrace the Bible as the trustworthy and inspired Word of God.
     We are members of God's worldwide family. Our spiritual roots, like those of all Christians, go back to the story of God's people in the Old Testament. Likewise, we are a part of the universal Christian church, the story of which begins in the New Testament.
      In our faith, we affirm the ancient creeds of the early Christian church. We are also spiritual heirs of the sixteenth century Reformation, which emphasizes salvation by faith, and of the Anabaptist wing of that Reformation, which stresses voluntary adult baptism as a pledge of covenant with Christ and the church.
      We are a part of the Mennonite Church. While we see ourselves first of all as members of God's worldwide family, we are linked with the Mennonite family of churches in our concern for Christ's example of a life of simplicity and peace, and in our support of that denomination's mission, relief, education and publishing efforts.
      We are a living, growing and serving local family of faith:
LIVING: Our desire is to be a community of people who love God above every other love or loyalty and who love our neighbors and even our enemies as Christ taught us.
GROWING: In order to experience more and more of the spirit of Jesus in our lives, we urge the practice of spiritual disciplines of prayer and the study of scripture, accountable relationships with others, and regular attendance at house church meetings for worship, study and fellowship.
SERVING: Together we want to continue the kinds of ministries Jesus began when he was here on earth. We urge the giving of at least a tithe (10%) of our working hours and of their incomes for direct service to others through the church.

Imagination Can Fuel Either Faith Or Fear

In light of the many uncertainties we face in our future, our imaginations inevitably fill in gaps with details we have no way of knowing, thus either adding to our fear or enhancing our faith. 

     In times like these, it's not hard to imagine a lot of things in our world or in our personal lives coming to some unfortunate end. And it’s not hard to see that we naturally become far more anxious when we spend the majority of our time ruminating on that fear end of the spectrum, imagining all manner of worst case scenarios. In accordance with  'Murphy's Law' we assume that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, most likely terribly wrong. 

     On the other hand, when we are operating within the faith end of the spectrum, we are visualizing better than expected outcomes. This doesn't mean we don't recognize the possibility of things turning out badly, but we don't see those outcomes as being inevitable. By faith, we see bad things as less likely to happen than good, and trust that as a people of God, the odds are truly in our favor. 

      So what if we made a practice of  occasionally spending some time prayerfully preparing for the worst, but devoting the majority of our time picturing things turning out reasonably well--and ultimately very well. 

     And to believe that even if bad things happen, we will never have to face them alone, and that God, and God's people, will help us through whatever comes. 

     Until the very, very best finally comes.

Some Things I Learned From Major Surgery  

1. Never take life or health for granted. I was assured that the survival rate for heart bypass patients was near 99%, yet I'll never forget the good feeling I had when I first became awake after a five hour surgery. Life is precious indeed.
2. Having strong family support is priceless, a blessing beyond belief.
3. I’m equally grateful to God for the countless friends, neighbors and members of our church family who have showered us with prayers, cards, visits, food and other favors too numerous to count.
4. Health care professionals are worth their weight in gold. Before, during and after my hospital stay, scores of care providers invaluable help through the healing process.
5. I gained a new appreciation of a loving God who designed the human body in an amazing way, then gifted myriads of people who have helped perfect medical treatment to help us when we need it. 
6. Healing takes time and patience, You can expect some really encouraging progress followed by days and nights that seem endless and with fewer signs of healing.
7. The healing of mind and body go hand in hand. I expected to catch up on a lot of reading in my recovery, but for the first couple of weeks I found that my mind was unlike its usually motivated self, and that my brain, like my newly repaired heart, also needed some recovery time.
8. The world can get along quite well without my having to be in constant control of the kind of full schedule I've become used to.
9. Just as there are an amazing number of ways of helping people experience wellness and healing, I’m newly aware of just as many unbelievable ways in which people are capable of creating destruction, suffering and misery on vulnerable, pain-prone human beings.
10. In summary, I've gained bucketsful of gratitude to God for all my blessings, and want to use every opportunity possible to preserve life and to promote healing.

When Heaven Comes Roaring Down To Earth      

"That day about three thousand took him at his word, were baptized and were signed up. They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers. Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person’s need was met. They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God."
                                                                        Acts 2:41-47 (the Message)

I've usually read these words with a sense of reservation. They seem far too idealistic, way beyond anything any of us believers would ever be able to experience today. 
    What? Sell everything and share with everyone? Daily prayers, praises and celebrative meals with fellow believers? That would require an unbelievable miracle, far beyond the most amazing of "signs and wonders".
    It would be like heaven.
    Then it dawned on me. Pentecost Day is exactly that, God's heaven breaking into earth, a true foretaste of things to come.
    Will not our eternal life with God be all about praise, all about sharing an abundance of everything with everyone? Isn't it all about harmony and shalom and a life of joy beyond compare?
    For me, that sheds a new light on Pentecost. On this day nearly 2000 years ago, newly baptized believers from all over the world experienced a gale force wind of change that revolutionized their lives forever, one that was about to set the whole world on fire.
    Should this not be happening today? Do we really want to wait until the next life to celebrate this wonder?                             - Harvey Yoder

Notes, Prayers and Praises

by Minor Junior Smith, a blind poet and author at Deerfield Correctional Center who is still waiting for his well-deserved parole release.

An awl is a tool for piercing holes, particularly in leather. It is a simple metal shaft, with a knob of wood for a handle, polished by its fit in the sinewy cradle of a leather worker's palm.
   It is likely the tool with which Louis Braille blinded himself as a three-year-old child in France, in an accident in his father's saddle making shop in the early nineteenth century. (1) Braille later invented a system of raised dots as a means of reading and writing for the blind. 
   We don't know whether he was in the shop with his father or alone, whether it was a damp and rainy day, or whether the sun shone and brought to life the floating dust that always hung in the workshop air.
   Maybe it was just a little poke in the eye with this small tool, a small slip of the hand, a small injury, a little fumble that resulted in his blindness.
   This was decades before general anesthesia or antiseptics. Perhaps the doctor they rushed him to believed n the value of "laudable pus" in a wound. I don't want to picture it.
   And as a child in his father's saddle-making shop, did Louis Braille already know the names of the parts of a saddle: pummel, stirrup, tree? Did he know the smell and feel of each grade of leather? 
   Of all the tools, punch and pincers, gauge and groover, chisel and awl, he chose awl. 
   Was it an accident that the tool I used at the blind school in Staunton, Virginia, for pressing hand-punched Braille dots was like a blunt, very small awl?      

(1) Braille’s injured eye developed an infection that spread to his other eye, eventually causing totally blindness. At first he didn't realize he had lost his sight, and kept asking why it was always so dark.
