A Message from Pastor Cody
Thank you for participating in what Christ is doing in and through the people of First Presbyterian Church of Littleton!
I have a bucket list of things I want to see and do during my life, and one of those items was “See a tree big enough to drive a car through.” Luckily I was able to check off that bucket when I went to see the Redwood forests in California. These huge trees seem invincible in their towering majesty. Yet I noticed that there were ropes around a few of the trees that were isolated from the rest of the forest. The sign said to keep away from the tree. After inquiring, I found out that, while Redwoods stretch almost interminably toward the sky, they have very shallow roots. The roots are so shallow, in fact, that if enough people walk around the base of one it can fall over. A Redwood on its own can be felled with footsteps. But a forest of Redwoods is a different story. The shallow roots of these trees become interwoven to provide strength to one another, and if you want to yell “timber!” at one of those trees, you better have a gargantuan saw because it’s not falling over.
In the same way, when we find ourselves trying to “do faith” alone, we may look strong on the outside but we are vulnerable on the inside. It is only when we join together that our roots can strengthen one another. This is how the earliest Christians learned how to follow Jesus with their lives:
42They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. 43Awe came upon everyone, because many wonders and signs were being done by the apostles. 44All who believed were together and had all things in common; 45they would sell their possessions and goods and distribute the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, 47praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. – Acts 2:42-47 (NRSV)
Together, we can become a forest of spiritual Redwoods, strengthening each other and blessing our community!
