Journey To The Falls
Ecclesiastes 11:7-10


Our family took some time over fall break to enjoy the outdoors in Tennessee. One of the great memories was a hike up the mountain to see a waterfall. When we drove up to the park it was partly sunny and there was no rain in the forecast. As we hiked up the mountain, it became clear that we were hiking into a cloud. The further we hiked the more clear it became that we were hiking into a rain cloud! Moments later we heard the rain, but the forest was so thick, we didn't feel the rain. I thought in my mind; "Yeah, but it won't be long until we do feel the rain falling through the trees". My hiking experience was telling me something that I felt I knew well. Instead, I was wrong, we kept hearing the rain hitting the leaves, but it never made it through the tree cover. By the time we made it through the waterfalls it had stopped raining, and we simply enjoyed the sound of the water running over the rocks. 

When we hike as a family I have moments where I am anxious about something not going right. I have a check list in my head that goes something like: water, directions, weather, first aid, backpacks, snacks. This list is in no particular order, but these things keep popping in my brain at the beginning of the hike. I want everyone to have a good experience, and like life there are times where we have forgotten something while preparing.  
Also, where did that rain come from? It wasn't in the forecast! The further that we get into the journey I begin letting go of the list of things that make me anxious. I begin to live into the moment and see the adventure ahead. Some days are better than others, but at some point the hike becomes less about the list of items and more about the experience on the way. 

This Sunday, we begin a new sermon series as we journey in our faith. The series is titled: Be Not Anxious For Anything. This phrase is found in Philippians 4:6, and each week we will build towards this statement of faith from Paul. The phrases, "Be Not Afraid, and "Be Not Anxious" are found over 365 times in the Bible. There is a theme as God's people lived out their lives of faith that we need to take to heart. The Bible is being very honest in addressing our humanity. By the number of times this topic is mentioned in the Bible, God has made it a priority to send us a message of peace! I hope that you are able to join us this Sunday, if not at the 11:00 time, you can catch the service later on YouTube!

Lucille Raines Residence- A Gift Has Been Given by BRUMC.

Owned and operated by United Methodist Women of Indiana, many of the men and women, who are residents, are actively engaged in rebuilding their lives from substance abuse. They all share in learning to function independently and as whole people in life. Many are finding Christ to be the source of successful recovery.

Though our weather has turned a bit cooler, the air conditioner at Lucille Raines Residence has failed. The equipment was about 50 years old and could no longer be repaired. God's Grace provided them with a new unit without having the full amount of $88,000 and they are in need of help in raising those funds. If you are able to donate toward those funds go to Lucille Raines Residence

All gifts are welcome.

Rev Paula Mayberry

President, LRR Executive Board of Directors
