word from the pastor 2 
             Hello Main Street, UMC family, it seems as though we missed spring and walked right into summer. Indiana isn't know for its consistency when it comes to weather is it?

This Spring or lack thereof, reminded me of our Christian walk from time to time. First, we expect our walk to be easy or at least consistent, and it rarely is. Secondly, when our relationship with Jesus or even with fellow believers starts to  wane, we can easily get frustrated and then we can begin to fall away. Jesus said "Come to me, all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for you souls. For my yoke is easy,, and my burden is light". (Matthew 11:28-30 NRSV)

I believe the lack of consistency in my walk from time to time and my frustrations come about, because I forget to walk with God. Yes, even Pastors can fall short. We are called to be "yoked" with Jesus. Through that amazing gift of the Holy Spirit, we no longer must walk alone, or wonder where Jesus is, because He lives within us, IF we only believe.

               If I have described your spirtual walk, I pray that you will turn back to Jesus, and the inconsistencies of this world behind. Yoke yourself with the "Good Shepherd" and allow Him to lead and to Love you right where you are. If you're not sure where this kind of Love can be found, come, and join us on Sunday at 10:45, I'm confident, when you meet my Church family, you will see the Love and the Light of Jesus.

 

Blessing Pastor Doug
