MUSINGS FROM MIKE
‘A Community – Don’t Live Life Without One’
In the last month I have seen first-hand the power of a community – most especially the community of Butler UMC.
I saw the power of 10 people who had been strangers or acquaintances become companions and friends through sharing a week of home rebuilding in North Carolina.
I have watched a hospitality team prepare for and care for families facing the death of a loved one through funeral and memorial service luncheons.
I have seen and received from this church community the many moments of kindness and care-taking to people at all sorts of moments in life and when they needed it.
I have been privileged to read and reflect on your thoughtful responses to the ‘Start with Why?’ preaching series.
People continued to be served by Gleaners Thrift Shop, Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, Noah’s Ark Preschool, Bible Study, and several other groups that call this church home.
It helps me to know that the mission we are in to ‘Feed People – Body & Soul’ is working and makes a difference.
I hope you keep working together to make this an authentic, people and God-centered community. It is one of the big things that make life’s journey better and worth it.
