WORDS FROM PASTOR ROBIN
August 10 2020
This past weekend, did you take a break from your cares? It’s kind of difficult to do if you don’t drink coffee. More and more I’m realizing that we need to take a few moments each day to just sit and do nothing.
Most people do this with a coffee in hand and a comfortable chair.
There are two things I think each of us should do. First, we need to stop thinking of the eminent. Most of us know what that is due to this major change in our world. It has distracted us from what is important to each one of us. And that means each one of us has different things in life that we have always seemed to fit somewhere at the top of our list of agenda and priorities.
To get back to them I want you to set aside a few minutes each day to reconnect with these items. But we need to do this for our own well-being. You know what these things are. They can be people, hobbies, writing, art, decorating or even learning more about what makes you tick. Start small, then expand, get yourself back and increase the time you spend on these activities. And even though we have difficulties in life at this time, God didn’t go somewhere else, He is always right there with us. With His peace, we can still be the person we have always been.
How are you? It would be wonderful to know all of you are doing well. Email me to let me know. Send the email to: [email protected].
Online Worship Services – Pastor Robin’s video messages will still be coming to you each Sunday morning on both YouTube and through the MBC website
Worship Service @ Milton Baptist Church, Sunday Aug.16th 11am – Tim Brown will be with us again this coming week. As you feel comfortable with returning to church join those who are already coming. The building is clean and ready for our return.
The Ontario Government has set down guidelines for a return of the children back to school. As a guideline, you need to do what you think is good for your children and your family. The same is true for coming to church with our Children’s Sunday Ministry. As of right now, there is no Sunday children’s program. We will be working on it for this coming school year and will keep you up to date on what we will be doing.
Scripture of the Year
Pray for one another. I would encourage everyone to take out your directory and go through each name and pray for them individually. As we are a family, we need to support each other in prayer. Do your part. Then give someone a call.
