From the Pastor's Desk 

Over the last several months or maybe even years, I feel like we all have been carrying a heavy burden. First was the pandemic, and the all the disaffiliation talks added to an already heavy load. In Matthew 11:28 NLT Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”

Something I am curious to know is exactly how many people we cross paths with a day who are burdened?  I would almost say we cross paths with someone every day who is hurting in one way or another.  In other words, we pass someone on the street or in a store who is carrying a burden.  How can we help bear one another’s burdens?

Briefly I want to share with you a few suggestions of how we can bear one another’s burdens:

1. Be there. Just be present with them.

2. Listen. Don't try to supply answers just listen.

3. Share. Your times of struggle and how God helped you overcome.

4. Pray. Let the person know you will be praying for them and pray with them.

5. Give. Give a handshake, pat on the back, hug, financial gift.

Remember that there are hurting people everywhere, take the time to reach out in kindness to help ease the pain of someone’s burden.  Oh yeah, don’t forget to pray for them too.

In His Love,

Bro. Greg
