I just love it when God shows up and does what only God can do…The old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” is a little dated in terms of the joy we experienced today! It is always wonderful and fun to be in fellowship with God and each other here at First United Methodist Church. Paul in his letter to the churches in southern Galatia first said, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.’ (Galatians 6:9-10, NKJ)
“Supposing today were your last day on earth, The last mile of the journey you’ve trod, After all your struggles, how much are you worth? How much could you take home to God? Don’t count as possessions your silver and gold ,For tomorrow you leave them behind. And all that is yours to have and to hold are the blessings you’ve given to mankind. Just what have you done as you’ve journeyed along, That was really and truly worth while? Do you feel you’ve done good and returned it for wrong? Could you look o’re your life with a smile?” (Author Unknown)
Next Wednesday, (and every Wednesday thereafter until God directs us otherwise) we will continue with food box distribution at 12:00pm in the Family Life Center parking area while supplies last.AND…during the Lent we are “kicking it up a notch or two” (Emeril Lagasse) because we, the people of First United Methodist Church realize physical nourishment is only part of the famine. Next Wednesday we will offer Drive Thru Prayer for any and all who stand in the need of prayer.
