Letter from Dr. Joseph Tkach - Oct. 2017

Date: 

September 29, 2017 (All day)

Dear Brothers and Sisters, it’s October again, and if your neighborhood looks anything like mine, Halloween decorations have sprouted up on every corner. Some are more frightening than others, but there’s plenty of skeletons and cobwebs to go around. Halloween is a holiday that, for most people, focuses on fear. People buy tickets for haunted houses and amusement parks that promise thrills and chills. Many watch movies that make them jump, or dress up in scary costumes. But of course, feelings of fear are not restricted to October 31.

I want to tell you about a concert Johnny Cash gave in 1969. It was like any other he’d participated in except for one major difference – this time he wasn’t playing in an auditorium filled with kids from the suburbs.

One of the greatest moments in Olympic history belongs to a British sprinter named Derek Redmond. Despite smashing national records and winning gold medals in the World Championships and Commonwealth Games, Derek faced setback after setback due to injury. In the 1988 Olympics, he was even forced to withdraw just ten minutes before his race due to an injured Achilles tendon. So when he stepped onto the track for the 400 meters in Barcelona in 1992, he did so with one goal: he had to win a medal. At first, it seemed like that’s exactly what was going to happen.

Have you ever felt like you woke up on the wrong day? Maybe it was a day where everything around you seemed to be going wrong, and you wished you could just press fast-forward until the sun went down. It can be easy to feel this way. We all have bad days sometimes. But the next time you do, I want you to pause and ask yourself something. Whatever day that day is, ask yourself: “Will there ever be another one like this?” The answer, of course, is no. Time moves on, and we move on with it. The sun sets, and the page is turned. We don’t get any do-overs.

We’ve all seen the famous poster that says “Keep Calm and Carry On.” It was released by the British government in 1939 to encourage the city of London during the Nazis' terrifying bombings. Since then it has been repurposed countless times to fit any variety of messages, everything from “Keep Calm and Have A Cookie” to “Keep Calm and Use The Force.” Why is this idea so universally resonant? Because human beings are always afraid of something! In fact, the fear centers in our brains are a big reason our earliest ancestors survived on a tough and inhospitable planet.

Have you ever had to describe someone you know, and struggled to find the right words? I certainly have, and I know I’m not alone. We all have those friends or acquaintances who defy easy description. But Jesus wasn’t like that. He was always clear and bold in his answers to the question, “Who are you?” One of my favorites is this answer he gives in John – “Jesus told him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6 NLT).

“Love means never having to say you’re sorry,” is a very famous line from the film LOVE STORY, but it’s also dead wrong. I think the opposite is true: that love means actually being able to say that you’re sorry. As Christians, we all have an awareness that while we’re assured of our eternal salvation in Christ, we continue to live in a fallen world and we don’t yet fully partake in the perfection of the Trinity. A sinful nature still has a pull on us, and we will definitely hurt and offend those closest to us.

During Jesus’s earthly ministry, he attracted a lot of attention from important people. One of the most memorable was Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin, the same group of men who, in alliance with the Romans, eventually had Jesus crucified. But Nicodemus had a very different relationship with our savior – one which totally transformed him. When he first met with Jesus, Nicodemus insisted they do so at night. Why? Because he had a lot to lose by being seen with this man whose teaching stood so strongly at odds with the teachings of his peers. He was ashamed to be seen with him.

In 1995, Lena Paahlsson lost her wedding ring while doing some cooking in her kitchen. After months of searching, it appeared the ring was lost forever. But 16 years later, as Lena was working in her garden, she made an incredible discovery: her wedding ring hooked around a small carrot that she just pulled up from the ground! This truly incredible story reminds me that in relationship to God, hope is never truly lost. Why? Because there are no expiration dates on his promises.
