Dear Members and Friends of First UMC, Copperhill,
Spring is in the air and on the Bradford Pear trees but it is not on the calendar yet! I could mow my yard now, if it were dry. What’s the old saying? If March comes in like a lamb, it goes out like a lion–or something like that. At the other end of March, both spring and Easter will be here.
In the remainder of Lent, consider God’s promises. Creation itself is a promise. We witness God’s faithfulness in the four seasons. Within creation, life is God’s promise. We live in God’s presence. Jesus is the fulfillment of God’s promises with eternal life, constant presence, and unending creativity.
Let us give thanks and praise to God as we remember the sick and lonely. Let us pray and work for God’s justice in all life’s situations.
I am thankful for each of you. Be healthy and strong. Keep the faith.
Love & prayers,
