Hello Methodists of Park County and beyond,
This Sunday I am preaching on one of my favorite passages, Philippians 4:4-7. In The Message verses 6-7 read, “Do not fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers. Before you know it a sense of God’s wholeness (peace) will come and settle you down.” This season is fraught with worries and frets alongside the joys and celebrations. There is so much wisdom packed into that little phrase, turn your worries into prayers. As we do, we hold onto the promise that God’s peace will settle us down. “Silent Night, Holy Night, all is calm, all is bright.” I don’t think there was much about that night long ago that was silent or calm, but I suspect Mary and Joseph found peace amidst the chaos in the presence of God. May God’s peace, that passes all understanding, calm your heart and settle your worries down this advent season.
Dec. 12th and 19th our worship schedule is 8:00 at Grace, 9:30 at Pine Creek, 11:00 at Holbrook. Zoom is at 9:30. Pick the time and place that best meets your needs. Each week we will explore the wisdom the ancient prophets have for us today. Their words are remarkably relevant to our contemporary life.
