Pastor's Letter

 
December 11, 2015
 
Dear Friends,
The Beatles sang it well: All you need is love.....love is all you need. What other songs about love come to mind? (Love) more than a feeling - all I need is the air that I breathe and to love you - Love makes the world go round - Love is a many splendored thing. If you think about it long enough, all sorts of songs come to mind (and some stick in your mind - like an ear worm - and you're thanking me for that right now!)
We were created for love by a God who is, love. We need this gift of love like we need food, air, and water. Love moves us, changes us, and empowers us. Love makes us do extraordinary things. Out of love, God does extraordinary things in our lives - it is what we celebrate at Christmas. What extraordinary things has God done out of love, in your life?
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please be in prayer for the ways we can be a blessing to the neighbors around Buckhall UMC. Please pray for how God is calling you to be a blessing.
Yours in Christ,
Linda
