If you’re interested in helping with the Community Breakfast (hosted by the men of the church) on Easter morning, see R. D. Robinson or call him at 396-6112

From Beth’s Desk

Lent – giving up? Giving to? Giving in?

This year, I’m thinking giving in is what Lent may be all about – giving in to God.

Giving in, surrendering to all that God has in mind for me, for all of us.

To give in, especially to God, may well require a whole host of giving up – especially giving up my own ideas of how things should be, how I should be. But giving in – especially to God, is so much more, simply because to give in to God is so much more than me.

Giving in to God is the Jesus-blessed Holy Spirit in me coming into its own fullness within this house named Beth.

That seems a blessing worth sitting in a desert for.

We’ll see where the Spirit-wind blows, shall we?

Blessed Lent,

Pastor Beth
