It’s that time of year… time for vacations and trips to the beach. I love the ocean and walking the beach collecting seashells. As I have grown in my walk with Christ, the seashell has become an important symbol in my life because it is the symbol of baptism. In our baptism, we are marked as God’s child and given the Holy Spirit, who is our Helper, our Guide, our own personal life Coach. Through the water of baptism, we become part of God’s family, the Church, we are part of something greater than ourselves. In order for God’s Church to grow and thrive, God gives each person at least one spiritual gift, not for personal gain but for the benefit of the church. What is your gift? Why has God brought you here to Trinity “for such a time as this”? (See the story of Esther)
Do you control your emotions or do they control you? Are anger, fear, and sadness good or evil? How does being a Christian affect your emotions? We are starting a new sermon series that will take a biblical/ theological view AND psychological view of our emotions.
Trinity UMC is blessed to have three gifted counselors in our congregation and they, along with Rev. Rhonda, will provide teaching and tools to help us grow as mature followers of Jesus, by better understanding our God---given emotions. Please mark your calendars and plan to be in worship. Be sure to invite your friends!
The weekly messages will be posted here if you miss a week.
