When I was a teen one of the top shows on TV was a sitcom called “Cheers.” Maybe you remember it?
Centered around a neighbourhood pub in Boston, the show’s song that played during the opening credits quickly became an iconic TV theme song.
“Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
Wouldn’t you like to get away?
Sometimes you want to go
Where everybody knows your name,
and they’re always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see,
our troubles are all the same
You wanna be where everybody knows your name.
You wanna go where people know,
people are all the same,
You wanna go where everybody knows your name.”
The “Cheers” song became so iconic because it expresses a need that all of us share, a place to belong. We deeply desire a place where we fit in, where we are known, where we can love and be loved. We all need a place where at least one person knows our name; the problem is that often we encounter barriers to belonging.
This weekend we are continuing our series, “The Real You” and we will be asking the question “Where do you belong?”. We all encounter barriers to belonging but there is a place where the barriers have been removed. I hope you are planning to join us as together we explore Ephesians 2:11-21 and discover where you truly belong.
See you Sunday,
