From the Pastor's Desk
Hebrews 12:2 We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.
WOW, what a month it has been!!! The last time I sat down to write out “From the Pastor’s Desk” I had no idea how much our world would have changed in a month. No in person worship for over a month now, no gatherings of any kind, and we are still not sure what is next.
It’s almost like something you read out of a scary book or a book about the end times. But it’s not just a book, it is our new reality for who knows how long. I am so thankful for the people of the Hardinsburg UMC. You all have been so gracious and generous during this time.
As I am writing this, I don’t know what life will be like next month when I sit down at the computer to write another article for the June newsletter. But there are a couple of things I do know.
Come June I will still have the privilege and honor of being the pastor of the Hardinsburg and Talbert Chapel United Methodist Churches. I am so grateful and thankful I get to come back for year thirteen in this wonderful community. Okay, I’m going to ask it, “How have you all put up with me so long?”
The second thing I’m sure of is I’m going to keep on fixing my eyes on Jesus and not the virus. As the scripture says, “We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus.” We keep on keeping on as long as we fix our eyes on Jesus and not on what is happening all around us.
We will get through this together by keeping our eyes on Jesus.
In God’s Great Love,
