Particularization

I cannot believe it has taken me so long to write this post. I started writing in on the one year anniversary of Cahaba Park's first worship service. I am finishing a few days later. So, you can imagine all the emotions, memories and thoughts that are swarming in my head.

This past Sunday night was a very big night for Cahaba Park Church. Just two days shy of our one year anniversary, the church had its Particularization Service. Because Cahaba Park Church was a daughter church of Covenant Presbyterian, Cahaba Park has been under the authority and leadership of Covenant. When a church "particularizes", the church becomes its own self-governing body. It is amazing that in one year the Lord has brought together and congregation (where there was none before), raised up leaders and established the church in such a way that we are able to become our own. It is amazing to look back and see what all the Lord has done in just one year! I am leading a Bible Study on Deuteronomy starting in a few weeks and I have been doing some preparations these past few weeks. In Deuteronomy we see that one of the main reasons the Israelites fell into sin over and over again is because they failed to remember all the Lord had done for them. They did not remember that he always went before them and made their way possible. May September 7, 2008 be a day that Cahaba Park Church never forgets! I pray that we will always remember how faithful God has been in the past and know that he will always be faithful in the future!
