We are now entering the last quarter of 2018. We feel the fascination and atmosphere of autumn in October. Already, the autumnal colors have begun to stain the leaves. I pass by and see the stained foliage on the roads, I realize the beauty of God's creation that decorates and adorns according to seasons. There is an english sentence that's been instilled in my head. "God made a new world." In December of 2001, that was the first sentence written on that cold day by a blond haired and blue eyed professor on my first day of seminary in the United States.  That sentence is still deeply impressed in my heart.


The professor, who was from Grand Rapids, Michigan, said that his mother used to sing to him the song "God made a new world" and it made him think about God's love and grace toward humans. Since then, at every change of seasons, especially during the winter season when  branches and streets are covered with white snow, I cannot but praise God’s providential creations. And when it’s autumn season in Michigan, I feel the eloquent providence of God looking at the autumnal colors and rich seasonal fruits everywhere.


What is in your heart as you enter this beautiful and fruitful season? Some of you may be like me and some of you may already be getting ready for the year's end and planning for next year. Everyone probably has different circumstances and thoughts in mind as we start October, but I think we probably have one thing in common. After this season passes, winter will come.I could not physically feel the change of the seasons when my family and I lived in Florida but since moving here to Michigan, one distinct realization is the change of seasons. How do we realize the change of seasons? As we know that summer is approaching when spring buds grow on the branches of trees and green is added, We see through the changes of God's creation world.


The Lord said to the disciples, "I will come again!" So we need to keep a watchful eye on the times. Only those who are watchful will see the Lord come not as a thief. We must always have watchful faith. And we must pray to be a worshiper who is always awake. Dear friends! Please pray for many important October events at our church.  Pray for the new pastor, pray for church events in October (7th Walk to Emmaus Global, seminary Sunday, etc.), pray that we finish the race of faith well this year. The weather these days is perfect for early morning prayers. May we together awake in the early morning to pray in October.
