Losing It for Jesus| Rev. Baxter Chism.
"For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it" - Mark 8:35
Nobody likes to lose. If you are a competitive person, I'm guessing that if you feel like you have lost, whatever it is, it eats at you for a while. Competition is definitely not a bad thing because it challenges a person. I know it has helped me over the years.
But as Christians, what are we competing for as followers of Christ?
Jesus definitely has a way with words. Easily He used a story of using words and concepts from life to make people think and challenge what they believed. Lots of people in different places in life listened to what He said. I wonder if those who had it pretty good in life, who heard Him then, didn't like to hear, "lose your life." If it is going well, let's keep that going.
I think of our Racism Discussion Series and how it would challenge us. Over the years, I've heard story after story of people realizing the evils of racism. I've also heard countless stories of those whot deny the severity of it. I guess you could say many over the years have "lost" old views while others weren't ready to lose. The battle continues today.
Jesus, to me, when teaching the good news, was talking about a practice we call today altruism. Altruism is unselfishness. We become more concerned for the well-being of others. Most people who are altruistic respond to help others when they see how challenging circumstances cause empathy and a desire to help.
This is just my perception, but a lot of people today act on ethical egoism. This is different from being altruistic. People who practice this act out of their own self-interest. Sometimes they don't even know it. Maybe they want to look good to others or feel good about themselves. Case in point, you may know friends who get upset when others do not acknowledge what they have done. Their feelings might get hurt.
Fact is, we may be a mixture of altruism and ethical egoism. It’s a hard line to toe.
I think of the Book of Mark and how Jesus wanted people to focus on the good news...not the miracles. Jesus wanted people to hear the good news and respond out of love and justice for each other. He taught a different type of kin-dom than those who surround the people. It was not one built on class and understandings of prosperity and how people got it. Jesus was including and affirming people and challenging those who did the opposite.
Mark 12:35-40 talks, somewhat, about ethical egoism. He critiqued those who loved to be seen in the marketplaces with their fine clothes and always getting the good seat. Jesus also criticized their long-winded prayers "for the sake of appearance." How odd that doing something good can turn into something bad.
The context of how we practice our faith is very important. It is even more important to our neighbors.
Jesus woke a lot of people up. He used the words they knew to bring new light and to see them in different ways. He called out customs that were hurting people that were socially acceptable by many. He became a mirror to many and how they looked at life.
I often refer to the Apostle Paul. His life drastically changed when Jesus met him on the road to Damascus. Paul had education when very few did. He had backing from people and was a Roman citizen. He could have continued harassing Christians and living the "good" life in darkness. But he did not. He "died" to himself.
The Old Testament, in Genesis, shares the story of Abraham and Sarah. There was nothing wrong with their life. Abraham had stature and wealth. He also had respect. Then God called and he and Sarah would find themselves in places they had never been before. Their old life died and something new began.
The fact is, we are dying to ourselves every day. It has been my experience that dying to old ideas and putting others first can be extremely challenging. I remember the day that I started to wake up to the racism that surrounded me. What was normalized began to be unveiled. I began to ask my black and brown friends about their lives and challenges. Prayer and soul-searching is what I did. I guess you could say I put my Jesus glasses on. Many days I have to clean'em so I can see better still.
What are you losing for Jesus today? Is something dying that needs to?
I hope you have picked up your cross and are following Jesus this Lenten Season. We continue through these 40 days to reflect and seek to be more like Jesus. So, with that, I hope you lose on your journey. This loss does not bring about defeat. It is one of victory.
Lose it for Jesus. Find yourself.

In-Person Worship Services return in March| Board of Deacons.
The Board of Deacons are happy to announce that we will open up our sanctuary for socially distanced in-person worship beginning in March. In order to continue to adhere to the guidelines of the Commonwealth, those attending are asked to register for the services ahead of time on Sign-Up Genius (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f49a8a92da0f94-march) through our website or by calling the church office.

Please know how appreciated the outpouring of sympathy has been for the sudden loss of my brother.
Grief is painful but it helps to know so many people care. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
A Tareila Grant Recipient Thanks TCC!| Tareila Missions Committee.
GROW (Gardening Resources of Wellness), a program launched in June 2019 on the grounds of Tewksbury Hospital by Bob Baden and Emily Sherman, is the grateful recipient of a Tareila Missions Grant, and this program is helping many overcome adversity through the therapeutic benefits of gardening and a natural vocational training opportunity.
Mr. Baden reached out to the Tareila Missions Grant Committee to express his appreciation for the grant, which has been used to follow the 1950s-era planting guide of Tewksbury Hospital gardener Stuart Cogswell. Cogswell’s hand written seed chart, bound in an old leather book, has mesmerized the program participants. “They really have an appreciation for the care and detail that Cogswell took in documenting the plantings,” said Baden.
Here is a part of Mr. Baden's thank you note:
I hope all is well with you. Please find attached my Progress Report. I wanted to attach a copy of the thank you card that gets sent along with our flower deliveries as it mentions the grant-I am waiting for my Dir of Ops to send it to me so I can forward that as well.
There are several videos of the Stuart Cogswell project being added to our website. In that many of the videos are short. I have been editing some into slightly longer, more informational packages. That is what is currently being swapped out on our page.
There is so much footage and so much we want share.
Enjoy! Thanks again for everything.

The Racism Discussion Series is Here!| Rev. Baxter Chism.
Hi Church Family!
I wanted to share a reminder about our upcoming Racism Discussion. As you know, there has been much strife around our country because of racism. The Lenten Season is a good time to reflect and discuss this topic. Please be in prayer for our discussion and I hope you participate.
We will have two guest speakers. I'll also lead a bible discussion. Each session will be on Wednesdays beginning at 7 pm and lasting 60 to 90 minutes.
Here is the schedule:
Our speaker will be Rev. R.G. Lyons. R.G. is a friend and fellow pastor from Alabama. He has experience in the social just realm working with black and brown people. One of the ways he has served is by beginning a home church in a very impoverished suburb in Birmingham, Alabama. He will be able to share with us the obstacles created by racism. Also, he will be able to share about racism in the Deep South region of our country and how it has affected the culture there.
I will lead a bible discussion and point out how the bible addresses racism. Next week I will send out notes to guide you in preparation for the discussion. Even if you do not participate, please take time and read through the notes.
We will be joined by Rev. Darrell Goodwin. Rev. Goodwin, as he likes to be called, is a black person and part of the LGTBQ community. He is also the new Executive Pastor in the Southern New England Conference of the UCC. He will share with us about his life and also inform us of ways we can make a difference in our conference and the Wider Church around the country. Rev. Goodwin will also share the impact of not only racism in his life, but also the discrimination he has faced being a LGTBQ person.
If you would like, please submit questions for our speakers and myself. This will help us learn as much as possible during our time together. You can send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any type of question is welcomed.
Many have registered and you still have time! Also, if you prefer to participate by dialing in using your mobile phone or Land line, a phone number will be provided too. Please contact Mercy at 978-851-9411 or at email@example.com if you plan to participate.

CE Youth Lesson - Love Your Enemies - 2/28| Sue Panilaitis.
Jesus brought His followers to a mountain to explain to them what it means to live as part of God’s kingdom. During that message, He said something surprising about love. In Matthew 5:43-47 Jesus said, You’ve heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor. Hate your enemy.’ But here is what I tell you. Love your enemies. Pray for those who hurt you, (NIrV). Jesus wanted to be sure that love is bigger than we think, and everyone deserves love. Video, lesson and activity can be found here.
Bottom Line: Love others because they matter to God. We tend to make judgement calls on who deserves to receive love. But that’s not the way God works. All people are created in God’s image, and regardless of how much we get along or not, we should work to be nice and show God’s love to them. We’ll help kids understand how they can do this for the people in their life.
CE Youth Lesson - Mary and Martha - 2/21| Sue Panilaitis.
This week, we find Jesus at the home of His friends, Mary and Martha. In Luke 10:38-42, we find how these two sisters had different things in mind when it came to having Jesus in their home. Mary sat at Jesus’ feet while He talked. Martha was busy doing all the things that she felt needed to get done. She complained to Jesus, but He answered that what Mary was doing was better in this moment. Video, lesson and activity can be found here.
Bottom Line: Love others with your time. We often think that the only way we can show love for others is by being busy doing stuff for them. But people don’t need us to busy, they just need us to be there for them. The time we spend with others can speak volumes to show them how much we love them.
Missions Committee Needs Your Ideas!| Missions Committee.
The Missions Committee, on behalf of TCC, continues to support various non-profit agencies to help with their needs (Lowell Transitional Living Center, Tewksbury Food Pantry, The Wish Project, House of Hope, to name a few).

Dusting Time| Rev. Baxter Chism.
"By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return." - Genesis 3:19
Dusting the house is not one of my favorite past times. In the past, I have purchased air purifiers to do the job. Late last year, Christina purchased for us a new purifier and it excited me because of the potential of less dusting. After a few weeks I shared with Christina that it was working great! You are my friend, air purifier!
At the same time as I shared my glee, she asked me to check it to see how much dust was on the filter inside. So, I opened it to check and found the filter was still wrapped in plastic. You see, I took it out of the box and plugged it in without considering this needed to be done. It is no secret that I'm a periodic idiot living in the grace of God.
There is a saying that I use, if I can remember it, when imposing ashes on all your foreheads on Ash Wednesday. It goes, "You are dust, and to dust you shall return." You can find this saying or variants of it in the Old Testament. It is a reminder of things like repentance and that we will not live forever. Seeing these are things we do not like to talk about, why would we put dust enhanced with olive or vegetable oil on our foreheads?
Lent is here and it is time to pick up the cross and follow Jesus to Jerusalem. Whenever Jesus talked about this, the Disciples were like, "What the heck is the Lord talking about?" Jesus is the Messiah and the Messiah doesn't go to no cross!
It would have been easier for Jesus to stay in miracle-mode and build upon His rock star status. It would have been easier to teach the Disciples and live on. It would have been easier to go around preaching and preaching and not go to the cross. It would have been easier just to live a long life and return to dust like every other person. It would have been easier to lean upon His divine-side and just rule over Israel like King David.
Jesus didn't take the easy route. It was time to take the plastic off the filter.
You see, we are more than dust. Yeah, after our life is finished here, our bodies will return to dust. Our souls will not, however. Following Jesus is sanctifying grace. It purifies the soul. And sometimes the soul gets a little dusty. It needs a little cleaning.
Last night I did some dusting upstairs in the parsonage. Although it wasn't a complete disaster, it was nice for everything to be very clean and in order. As you all know, unless I keep it tidy it could become a complete mess. A little dusting now prevents a lot of dusting later.
1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” The writer also says in 1 John 3:3, "And all who have this hope in him purify themselves even as he is pure." James 4:8 reminds us that we are to draw near to God because it will “purify your hearts.”
Matthew 16:24-25 says, “All who want to come after me must say no to themselves, take up their cross, and follow me. All who want to save their lives will lose them. But all who lose their lives because of me will find them.”
Let us journey with Jesus this Lenten Season. Let the dusting begin. Turn the air purifier on. Time to clean up the soul. To do so, pick up the cross and follow.
