Sunday, 5-26 was a busy day for the Lunsfords. Rev. Ken Lunsford did his usual preaching at Laurel St. United Methodist and then First United Methodist Church in Dublin. Judy Lunsford preached at Greens Creek United Methodist, she filled in for Pastor Mike Hannah who was out of town.
This past Sunday was Trinity Sunday and Peace and Justice Sunday for United Methodist all over the United States.
Lisa Leatherwood served as Worship Leader she read a thank you card from the Sage family. Lisa also read the scripture from Matthew 5: 14-26.
The congregation was shown a Memorial slide program at the start of the service honoring those who have served in the military. Photos of members, deceased members, and relatives of members who served our country were part of the program. Pat Beaty softly played “America” during the program.
Prayer were requested for graduates as they face the end of their school year.
Rev. Ken Lunsford has started a new series of “Go Light Your World” sermons. The sermon for last Sunday was “Let My Light Shine.”
On the first day of Creation, God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. God saw that that the light was good and He separated the light from darkness.
In a heated discussion with the religious authorities, Jesus declares, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” We are not self-ignited; we do not shine on our own.
The Church through the centuries has had a love affair with light. We light candles even when it is not dark. The United Methodist logo is the cross and the flame.
Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. Let your light shine before people that they may see your good works and praise your Father in heaven.” You are called by Christ to “go light your world.” Will you let the Holy Spirit light your fire?
Remember Annual Conference for Central Texas United Methodists will be held in Fort Worth 6- 9 through 6-12. Pastor Ken will be attending this important gathering.
