Rev. Jim’s sermon title “A Child Will Lead Them”
Link to today's Sermon: "A Child Will Lead Them"
I want to share a quote with you from one of our members this week. We were sharing during of my “Getting to Know You” sessions when I asked this person, “What do you love about Trinity MCC?” The response I received was powerful; “It’s a warm and loving place to be.” I loved that so much I asked for permission to share it with you. Read it again, “I love Trinity MCC because it’s a warm and loving place to be.” That’s music to a pastor’s ears and I hope it rings in your ears, too. I hope you’ll continue to make Trinity a warm and loving place to be as others come back and come for the first time. I’d be happy for that to be our reputation all around the community…a warm and loving place to be. To the person who said it and gave me permission to use it, thank you. You made my day. For those who have not yet had a time with me, please keep signing up in the Narthex. We’re having a good time getting to know each other.
This week we have some important business to do. On Sunday shortly after the 10:15 service we will have a Congregational Meeting. There is a limited agenda for this meeting which includes presentation of the revised budget for the remainder of this year, the election of two members to the nominating committee, and a report from the recent MCC Region 7 Cluster Gathering in Pensacola, Florida. In order to accomplish these outcomes, we need you to make sure we have a quorum present. Please plan to join us for this important meeting in the ongoing life of our church.
I want to say a personal word of thanks to all of you who have been visiting one of our couples in the hospital. I so appreciate the way you’ve put feet under your words of love by showing in meaningful ways how much you care for each other.
This weekend we will be thinking about the story of Jesus feeding the multitude with five loaves and two fishes given by a little boy. Think about this with me; when did someone give you what looked like a small gift that made a huge impact on you. If you’re willing, I’d love for you to share some of those stories with me at Revjim@thecommunityactivist.
com. And be prepared on Sunday to think with me about the impact of a little child’s gift.
I pray for you blessings in the second half of your week and I look forward to being with you on Sunday as we continue building this household of faith for all people.
