Weekly Message from the Pastor - Jan. 19, 2018

January 19, 2018

Dear Friends,

Think about a time when you were on a long road trip. The miles fly by, time passes, and eventually someone calls out, “I’m hungry.”   You learn that you don’t want to be caught on a long stretch of highway, far between food sources, particularly with hungry (or bored) children in the backseat.   The situation can deteriorate rather quickly. So having ready food for the journey is more than helpful, it is necessary.

This week, we continue the series, “Unknown Territory.” The premise of this series is that a new year is like traveling through unknown territory. Like early explorers venturing into unchartered territory, this year of 2018 is unchartered territory for us. We don’t know what to expect or what we will encounter.

And, like any journey we need provisions.   No journey will go well if we aren’t feeding ourselves regularly. We are blessed that as we travel through this year, God provides us with nourishment for our journey – food for the soul. Sometimes, however, we seek to feed our souls with things other than what God offers. How can this effect our journey?

I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. In worship we will be commissioning Buckhall’s servant leaders for the work they will do for various committees in the church. Please join in celebrating their commitment.

Yours in Christ,

Linda
