Luke 4:22-30 (click to display NIV text)
Feb. 3, 2013
Pastor Dwight A. Nelson

“All spoke well of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his lips. ‘Isn’t this Joseph’s son?’ they asked.”

Luke tells us that Jesus began his ministry by teaching in the synagogues of Galilee and everyone praised him. We then learn in verse 23 that the people in Nazareth heard of what he did in Capernaum and wanted him to do those things in Nazareth as well. That probably meant teaching along with healing miracles, a ministry of word and deed.

People have always loved a good teacher. News gets around fast when a well respected teacher comes to a university or to a high school or to a church. People are eager to take a class. Whether it is moms registering their children for kindergarten or college students registering for classes, it does not take long to find out who the good teachers are and which ones to avoid. That news travels about as fast as any. We value a good teacher.

A Congregational Meeting will be held on March 17, at 12:30 p.m. at which time we will be electing people to serve on our Pastoral Search Committee. If you would like to submit your name or to nominate someone to consider serving, forms will be available in the Sunday bulletins or you can do so online.  If you have any questions about this process please contact Trevor James at tjames@northpark.edu.

The Council hopes to have a good cross section of our Congregation from which we can select the 9 person committee. All nominations must be received by Sunday, March 3rd. Our process is going to adhere to our church By-Laws.
