“For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
What hope and joy do we find in these words. A small innocent baby is coming to save us all. If God can do all of this through Jesus, this baby, imagine what God can do through and in you!
We worship the God of love and grace who we can leave all our cares and fears with and know God will bear them for us. After almost two years of fear and isolation for many we are comforted once again by our Lord and Savior.
God is showing us at Vincentown United Methodist church that we are not done serving and loving those around us. We are continually opening with new groups, ideas, and missions because God can do all of that and more for those who are willing to serve.
I invite you to join us this Advent season including the birth of our Savior and on to be a part of what God is doing here. There is love and grace abounding. We want to continue with our journey in doing all we can for whomever we can which includes you!
I pray we can reflect on this season the great love bestowed on us. Put aside the hustle and bustle if you can and reflect on all the ways God has enabled us to get through the past two years. If you are reading this, consider that to be a sign God is not finished with you yet either.
Share with me or those around you what God has been able to get you through this year. If you have any ideas for ministries or groups, you would like to lead contact me and we will work through it together.
I see a very bright future ahead for us all. I hope you will be a part of it whatever “it” may be. There are no gifts of God less or more important and whatever gifts you have God needs you to use them. There is something for everyone in God’s kingdom.
As you go through this over commercialized season never forget the truly Good News from God:
“I am bringing you good news of great joy for all the people: 11 to you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is the Messiah, the Lord.” (Luke 2:10b-11)
Peace and Blessings, Pastor Connie
