Seattle Presbytery

by Rev Eliana Maxim, Associate EP

“I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?”  Isaiah 43:19
 
I’m driving across the bridge and am blinded by a vaguely familiar resplendent orb in the sky. How can this be? It’s the middle of winter-the dreaded February Funk - and I’m wearing short sleeves, sandals and rummaging for sunglasses.
Once again, God has thrown a curveball.
 
Or perhaps, as our recent Presbyfest Keynote speaker, Rev. Bruce Reyes-Chow, emphasized in a sermon, “God is birthing something new.” After it’s all said and done, we can’t help many times thinking that… well… it’s done. But it’s not. God continues to move and act in remarkable and surprising ways.
 
From my seat at the presbytery office I can see the movements. We have a new ministry team forming to discern how to serve immigrants being held at detention centers, another seeking ways to minister to new refugees. Several of our established churches are beginning discernment processes on new church mission initiatives. One of our long-time immigrant fellowships has made the decision to become a New Church Development in the PCUSA. Indeed, God is birthing all sorts of new and exciting things among us!
 
Take a look around your church. Where do you see God breathing new life? Where do you see the stirrings of a new mission? Where is God calling you to bear witness to the Gospel? And how can the presbytery support you in this endeavor?
 
Share your good news with us. And watch closely how God continues the wonder of creation among us.
