Daily Lectionary Readings for Year B
When reading the lessons this morning, I couldn't help but think about all the people I have known whose faith has carried them. Through good times and bad, through suffering and gladness, through uncertainties and the mundane faith in God's love and grace has been the constant. Faith in Christ has been the light that shines through the darkness.
Marilyn Knapp is on my mind this morning. Marilyn shared her faith experiences in worship a few weeks ago. Perhaps you are still reflecting on the wisdom of the little push to do the things that are difficult and scary. On November 8, 2019, Marilyn was in a terrible accident. It was the morning after she returned from an overseas mission trip. Her car skidded on the ice and she hit a pole. Marilyn was badly injured. The Wesley Park Chancel Choir and friends surprised her just after Christmas. Here is that video. Now, Marilyn is living at Clark Retirement Community, a United Methodist Senior Living facility. Attached is her picture of Marilyn from last week. :)
Give someone a call today. Talk about how your faith has helped you through thick and thin over the years, and pray for those who have modeled what it is like to live with faith in Christ.
