What are we waiting for?

What is God doing while we wait?  For children, last week it was difficult to wait for Christmas!  For moms and dads, it may be difficult to wait for school to begin again due to the our overwhelming desire to be back on a familiar schedule.  In Psalms 70:1, the psalmist David prayed, “Make haste to help me, O Lord!”   Like David, many of us don’t like to wait for anything…red lights, doctor’s appointments, or the New Year!  God uses the times when we are waiting to help us grow into stronger Christians.  Through our times of waiting, we may develop patience, kindness, or gentleness. 

At this time of year when Lansing Christian School is working on our Annual Fund Campaign, we wait and pray.  It takes all of us contributing our time, talents, and treasures to enable Lansing Christian to continue to raise up our children to become the next generation of Christian leaders in the Lansing area.  Please partner with us as we pray, and consider a tax-deductible donation to our Annual Fund Campaign to help support our wonderful teachers, our beautiful school, and our terrific programs.  You may click here to donate online, drop off your donation to our office – we are open from 8 am to 4 pm today, Thursday and Friday, or mail it with a postmark no later than Saturday, December 31st. 

By partnering together we are able to continue “Growing Minds, Nurturing Faith, and Preparing Lives” for Christ’s service!

Keys!

Keys, keys, keys!  I pick up my key ring and wow, what are all the keys for? Some of the keys are shiny, some are old and worn, some are silver, and some are multi-colored, but they all have some significance in my life.  Sometimes It is that way in our Christian life; we are so busy searching through the keys to our life that we miss the most significant key, the Key to Eternal Life, Christ our Lord.  In Luke 2:11-12 we read: 11 ”For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.  12And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”  As we cruise through this season with all of the lights, tinsel, and shiny “stuff” it is easy to take our eyes off of the significant Key, our Savior, and get  lost in the busyness of all of the other keys in our lives.  Please join me praying for our community as we carry the good news of the birth of Christ to the Lansing area.

Enjoy the ELetter!  There is a great picture of some of our freshmen young ladies singing at the Secondary Christmas Concert.

Best wishes for a blessed Christmas!
