A note from Pastor John
Recently I was reading the latest of the Mitford books by Jan Karon, and came across a passage that really grabbed at me: the main character is a pastor who is now retired and finds that he still pastors even though he is no longer the minister of a local church. In this little quote we find an older man reflecting on what he has heard.
“Father Tim told him th’ other day that everybody needed three things.
Somebody to love...Something to do...An’ something to look forward to.”
And I thought: Wow, that’s really profound. It’s like he was able to preach a three point sermon in just a few words. Sometimes God speaks to me through all kinds of means. Have you noticed that the really deep things come to you often when you are least looking for them? I hope that you do have somebody to love, I hope you do have something to do, and I hope you do have something to look forward to. Here at John Knox we try to answer these questions with you.
Hope to see you soon. In the love of Christ,
Often when you think you’re at the end of something, you’re at the beginning of something else.
