What do you wrestle with in life? What “inner demons” plague you most?
This Sunday we’ll hear about a time Jesus went out of his way– and I mean WAY out of his way– to chase after a man who was in terrible shape. This man was rejected by society and couldn’t even handle his own self. But Jesus pursued him, and at Jesus’ word, the man returned to wholeness. It’s proof positive that Jesus pursues you, too, and also a reminder that we should never dismiss someone just because they’re hard to be around. We all fight battles in our souls, and Jesus is here to win those battles for us all!
Welcome Back Dinner
In the United Methodist Church, pastors are always appointed one year at a time. Part of the tradition at FUMC is to throw a Welcome Back dinner every year to thank Pastor Jeff and his family and to say we’re glad to have them with us for another year! This year’s Welcome Back Dinner will be Sunday, July 22 at noon. Bring something for the potluck and sample everyone else’s favorites, too!
