Welcome to Trinity United Methodist Church

Dear Friends,

One of the most vivid memories I have as a child was our vacation or holiday time. What was yours like? We would go to the beach and my brothers and sister would spend hours swimming in the near freezing British coastal waters. We would paddle around in inflatable boats and build sandcastle after sandcastle with our buckets and spades. There is a game we played as well. We would construct giant moats around the castles with extended trenches, all for one purpose- to keep the tide out. The tide would come up the beach 20 or 30 feet and we would just keep digging deeper and wider moats, all to no avail, because we never could stop the tide. It happens and there is nothing we could do about it. I’m sure my parents loved us playing that game because it occupied us for a long time.
That childhood memory reminds me of the wonderful passage from Ecclesiastes 3 verse 1: There is a season and a time for every matter under heaven. Verses 6 through 7 read like this: 

 

A time to seek, and a time to lose,                                                                                                          

A time to keep, and a time to throw away;                                                                                    

A time to tear, and a time to sew;                                                                                    

A time to keep silence, and a time to speak.

 

The fall is a new season for all of us and in November we will look at being blessed! From the time of remembrance on All Saints Sunday to Thanksgiving, we will be encouraged to give thanks for all the blessings in our lives. It’s easy to be discouraged when the tide of life sweeps over us, but we can choose our response. So be encouraged during November to thank God for all of the many blessings in your life, and start NOW!

 

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;                                                                              

A time to mourn, and a time to dance;                                                                            

A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together.

Eccl 3: 4, 5

 

Peace,

Pastor David
