Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David

Next time you read Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David it will be August!
Here we are on the cusp of a new month as we say goodbye to July.

How do you say, “Goodbye?”

Are you good at saying, “goodbye?”
Some people are…
Some people aren’t…

Sometimes we have to say goodbye long before we wish.

Who is God?

God is

I hope your Thursday morning is off to an incredible start.

The thought of the day is more of a question to get your thoughts…

Who is God?

As you might be able to imagine, as a Pastor, I have had the privilege of running into all sorts of answers to this question over the years in my ministry.

I would love to know your “Thursday’s Thoughts” on this topic…

Who is God?

Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David

The Chain

When was the last time you went to the circus?
Was it a three ringer?
Barnum and Bailey?
Clowns?
Lions, tigers and bears? Oh my!
Tent with a center pole?Have you ever noticed the elephants?
These beautiful creatures stand so tall, with such pride as their ears flap and their trunks trumpet!

Weighing anywhere from 6,000 to 13,000 pounds, their mere presence dwarfs all those who dare to draw near.

What are you preaching?

Preaching

What are you preaching?

(Let the mental percolation begin…Tune of Jeopardy now playing in the background)

I am not talking about preaching from the standpoint of speaking before a congregation in a church setting.
I am not even talking about publicly proclaiming or teaching a religious or spiritual belief.

What I am talking about is:
What truths…
What practices…
What beliefs…
What traditions…
What type of culture..
Do you proclaim each and every day
through word,
through deed,
through action,
and through practice?

There’s a famous quote wrongly attributed to St. Francis of Assisi which says this…

Preach the Gospel, use words if necessary.

It’s a great quote and certainly something for us to take to heart.

I don’t know about you.
I barely know about me…
But…
I have to use words “a lot!”

I use words to share the “why” and the “who” behind my:
words…
practices…
beliefs…
traditions…
and culture.

My ultimate hope is to make my words and my practices align perfectly together as I preach
Love…
Mercy…
Grace…
Service…
Humility…
Jesus…
Forgiveness…
Care…
And the list could go on and on…

All this brings me back to the original question…

What are you preaching these days?

Have a great day and weekend ahead…

Preach on!

Laugh often and Fear not!
David!
