Question: 30% of Americans say they try a new one of these about twice a month. What is it?
Answer: Recipes! 

I'm sure that's true for many of us, especially since the start of the pandemic. We've been eating at home a lot and probably getting tired of eating the same types of meals every week. We need change in our lives and sometimes even fresh starts. The Lord offers us that fresh start daily with His grace and guidance. We need to commit ourselves to His call on our lives and trust that He has us.

This morning, we have the opportunity to re-commit ourselves and our church to Him as we make a fresh start and begin a new chapter together. It's an eventful morning, with our new senior pastor, Jill Jones, being commissioned to servant leadership by Joan Bell-Haynes, our Regional Minister with Disciples of Christ Christian Church.
