NOTES FROM PASTOR STEVE:
It is often said that Hawaii is a great melting pot. In a melting pot, everything is thrown in together. Heat is applied. All the individual ingredients melt and mix together forming a new and distinct substance. The individual characteristics are lost. Distinct shapes, colors, flavors all meld together into this new manufactured substance.
This is not at all what I see when I look around the room on any given Sunday. What I see is beautiful and distinct individuals, all coming here from their own unique background with their own style and flavor. What unifies us is that we are all created in the image of eternal God and committed to growing in our faith in Jesus Christ. When I step back, I see the group, all forming one beautiful picture of God's design, but still maintaining our individual flair.
In a mosaic, each individual tile has its own beauty with a unique color and texture. When all the pieces are carefully put together, a new image is formed. That is exactly what God has done with us! This mosaic picture has a wonderful beauty that could never be created out of a mileting pot!
On March 16th, we will worship as a family and celebrate our cultural diversity. Many will wear clothing from and share aspects of their own cultural heritage. After worship, we will share in some tastes from around the world.
I thank God for bringing us all together from literally around the world to serve Him here at First Baptist Church of Wahiawa!
