This Sunday I gave my congregation two questions to chew on this week. So for those of you who were away or in another place of worship here goes:
One: Are there places we are resisting God's activity in our lives?
Two: Is there some opportunity we feel God might be inviting us to, or some challenge God may be setting for us that we find difficult to embrace or entertain?
These questions were on the Working Preacher's Blog post.
I am inviting us to look at our responses and discern how God may be working in your life this week.
For me, as I begin this new year as the pastor of the Walnut United Methodist Church, I am looking for places that God is calling me to. This means I making changes to how I spend time, where I go to meet new people, and how to care for the present needs of the congregation. I am committed to being fully present to the Spirit as it guides me, and I confess the fear I feel about stepping out into the week determined to change what is keeping me from God's mission.
How about with you? What questions are you asking, and what answers come to you? Let's continue to dialogue.Pastor STeve
