Today’s Reading: John 17:4-5 (NIV)
4 [Jesus said,] “I glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do. 5 So now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world existed.”
How do we give glory to the Lord we love?
Most weekends are busy, but this weekend was crazy busy. Our grandchildren dressed up in colorful costumes and came to visit Granny Deb and Pa on Thursday evening. Two year old
The fun didn’t stop there. On Saturday morning,
Sunday was a morning filled with Worship and Word. We celebrated Holy Communion together; it is my favorite part of worship each week. I enjoy greeting my Faith family in the receiving line after worship. I met some new folks who worshipped with us, and had the opportunity to greet friends whom I have known for many years. Our family gathered together for Sunday lunch; all four generations enjoying time together around the table and out in our back yard. We held our first Spaulding Soccer camp for the grandbabies, a brand new tradition! It was one amazing afternoon!
Christ-like love is best expressed in the way we choose to lend our time and talents for each other. I saw the risen Christ living large in so many beautiful hearts this weekend. Thank you, for giving glory and honor to the Lord by the way you choose to share His love with the world around you.
Grace and peace,
Faith UMC -
