Pastor's Perspective

June 2016

Posted by Ricky Sanderford on

Lloyd C. Douglas tells the story of Thomas Hearne, who, "in his journey to the mouth of the Coppermine River, wrote that a few days after they had started on their expedition, a party of Indians stole most of their supplies. His comment on the apparent misfortune was: 'The weight of our baggage being so much lightened, our next day's journey was more swift and pleasant.'”

Douglas went on to write, “Hearne was in route to something very interesting and important; and the loss of a few sides of bacon and a couple of bags of flour meant nothing more than an easing of the load. Had Hearne been holed in somewhere, in a cabin, resolved to spend his last days eking out an existence, and living on capital previously collected, the loss of some of his stores by plunder would probably have worried him almost to death."

How we respond to "losing" some of our resources for God's work depends upon whether we are on the move or waiting for our last stand. God is always calling us to move forward. To go forward into God’s future. When we stop and build up fortifications around us for comfort and security we began to view the resources around us as limited and eventually scarce.

I pray we will continue to participate in the Methodist movement of spreading scriptural holiness throughout the land. It’s only by our willingness to move that God is able to keep lying us down in green pastures rich with grass and blessings. Come, go with me.

Grace and peace,
