"This Week" with Pastor Frank... January 24, 2020

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  This past week our own awesome Youth Director Ken Burns brought a tremendous message called "Check Your Heart".  That's something for us all to regularly do -- check your heart.  One of the ancient practices of the Church is called "examen", which means at the end of the day we go over the day's events.  Where have I seen God today?  Where might I have wronged someone today?  Is there someone I need to thank, or someone I need to ask forgiveness?  

When Jesus calls us, we are called to begin a great adventure.  This week we will look at the calling of the first disciples in Matthew's Gospel, Matthew 4:12-23.  These young men were being called out of the ordinary life into something life-changing, just as we are when we hear the call of Jesus.  And how easy it is for us to forget the adventure of the call while we are on the journey!  

We are beginning a new adventure here at Lake Houston UMC.  The construction site is a holy mess, as we watch our new Sanctuary begin.  We can look on the beautiful cross in our CFC that Derek Thibodeaux spoke so lovingly about in last week's second service and imagine it atop our new worship center, calling out to all who will come in for hope, for joy, for peace and comfort.  We'll have an update on the construction progress this week in each of our services.  

On Sunday afternoon we have the annual District Leadership Training Event at Klein UMC in Spring, from 2:30 to 5:30.  There will be workshops on Alternative Faith Communities, Loving All God's Children, Finance, SPR and more.  At 4:30 our District Superintendent, Rev. Kip Gilts, will have a session called "Piloting through the Present Protocol" for clergy and lay delegates to Annual Conference.  There is no youth or JAM this Sunday so that all can participate in some aspect of this training if you choose.  Come and see!

Those who want to carpool can meet at the church at 1:30 and prepare to leave by 1:40.  

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
