MICHAEL'S MUSINGS

 

“We know love by this, that Christ laid down his life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for one another.” James 3:16


"Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail."
K Freidman


Follow JesusThe signs are here; the days are getting shorter, the chill is in the air and the leaves are beginning to fall. Another season is upon us, and it is time to look toward a season of God’s ministry at work! Our last four months have found us being present in ways that transcend familiarity, proximity, and immediate contact. In other words, we have been living in faith! Serving people we don’t know, helping people we will never meet! Your willingness to minister is obvious in St. George—the Food Bank, Soup Kitchen, and Switchpoint are glad that Shepherd of the Hills UMC exists! But we have been so much more than what our eyes can see. We are reaching across the mountains and seas to help ministries in Russia, the Bahamas, Africa, and South America. We have supported our own as they travel to serve in disaster areas, to make new believers, and stand as a source of hope in the face of some of life’s greatest trials. We are ministering in God’s name, we are living God’s hope and bringing God’s love to others.


And that makes others glad that SHUMC not only exists, but is vital! Vital because this wonderful place educates us in the ways of the Lord; we worship here in song, scripture, and prayer while uncovering the very gift the world is searching to find. The call for each of us is to recognize that our support for this place of life is fed by our offerings of time, talent and treasure. I hope you are more than just thankful that SHUMC exists, and are excited to be a part of what God is doing and will do with us!

 

It is such a privilege to serve with you. I pray that as our time of Financial Commitment approaches, you will have the same faith that sees us not only providing love to the community of St. George, but that also finds us taking the good news to all the world.


Thank you for your continued support and the light we bear in the name of Christ!


See you in worship,
Rev. Michael
