May 14, 2021 - Main Street United Methodist Church 2.0

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the stage being set for God to do a new thing here at Main Street. As the situation with the virus continues to improve, we are moving closer to the time when we will be able to engage in activities that we have refrained from over the past year. This is also the time when we should be looking at what new things we could start to do. I would like to suggest some questions that we could use to get us thinking about what that new thing might look like.

How do we decide what to keep and what to change?

Where is God leading us to go?

Who can we serve that we are not serving now?

How do we remove the blinders that keep us from seeing all the world around us?

John 3:16 tells us that Jesus came that all who believe will have eternal life. What needs to change in our church so that our ministry reflects this truth for all people?

These are hard questions. But I think that if we spend some time searching for some answers, we will be opening ourselves to God’s leadership. God has a vision for us here at Main Street. We just need to connect with it. One thing that I do know; simply going back to where we were is not a move forward for the kingdom of God.

Will you join me in struggling with these questions and any others that come to mind?

Holy God, shine the light of Christ before us that we would see the path you have for us. Amen.

Always, to God be the glory!

Paul
