WORDS FROM THE PASTOR
One week blends into the next and we start to forget how many weeks it’s been. It started off as an experiment in living confined. I didn’t seem all that bad at first. But then we started missing, how should I put this, living normal. We couldn’t help ourselves, we wanted to break out. Now, at least for me, our new normal is rubbing off on us and we accept much of this is the new normal.
It’s not so bad when we realize that we seem to have more time to do the things we have been putting off for so long. I talked to a company that produces hand made doors and windows. They told me they are busier now than ever before. They love working with wood, as that is their passion in life and they are ‘living the dream’.
Maybe we need to start living our dream. What is it? How can you embrace it right now. And then, let it drift you off into the future. I want to challenge you to live the dream, but also to live the dream of getting closer and closer to God. We talk about connecting with all our friends, even from a distance. How about connecting with God. After all haven’t we sung for generations, “What a friend we have in Jesus“.
Think about, open your bible and live your spiritual dream.
