In the Scripture readings for this upcoming Sunday, we read a portion of the story of Jonah, and a story that Jesus tells about God's Kingdom. And in so many of the Scriptures, we are reading the stories of God and His people.
One of the joys of being a pastor is to be able to sit down with people and hear their stories of faith, of life in a congregation, and the challenges and joys they experience as people of God.
I am trying to get around to all of you at Resurrection, to sit down with you and at least have a brief one on one conversation. I want to get to know you. I want to be a pastor to you. And one of the important things I want to hear is your story, the story of how God has been at work in you, the story of your faith and the ups and downs and struggles you have experienced. But also the joys and the ways that God has made Himself known to you. How He has blessed you with His love and grace and mercy.
And in your stories, I hear God at work! I am renewed in faith. I am encouraged and uplifted by being able to hear you share with me the good news of God! That is what the community of faith is all about: hearing from one another, loving one another, encouraging one another, and finding joy in our relationship as people whom God so dearly loves.
I so look forward to sitting down with each of you. Send me an email, text, or call me, and let's plan a time and place where we can share our stories of faith!
