Pause for Thought

 

“From the old we travel to the new”

Well happy new Methodist year on 1st September! New Year is traditionally a time to reflect on what has happened during the last twelve months.

In our Church life and in your personal journey of faith how has it been? I have found that a difficult question to answer for myself as your Minister and as a Christian in this place. There has been much change, big decisions made and a time of unsettling. I wonder if that’s God’s way and the journey of faith is an uncertain and at times precarious journey. Sometimes we sing the hymn “God who sets us on a journey” it contains these lines, “should we stumble, lose our bearings, find it hard to know what’s right, we regain our true direction focused on the Jesus light.” Perhaps we have needed to stumble and lose our bearings to make us fix our eyes on Jesus again.

The other thing we do at New Year is thinking about what is hoped for in the next 12 months. As we go into a new multi-site church joined together with a new way of working what do we hope for on the journey? The same hymn has these lines, “keep us travelling in the knowledge you are always at our side; give us courage for the journey, Christ our goal and Christ our guide.”

My hope is that we are Christ centred and Christ guided on a journey into new waters and new ways of working open for new mission opportunities. May our confidence not be in the map but in the one we journey with. An exciting year awaits us! 

Rev Neville
