THE PATHFINDER
Little Valley United Methodist Church109 Court Street, PO Box 221Little Valley, NY 14755(716) 938-6150 Joseph Pascoe, PastorOffice Hours: Monday – Friday 9:00-12:00Monthly NewsletterSeptember 2011
Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ:I am writing this letter to you from the nicely air conditioned living room of my brother, David’shome in Dallas Texas. The temperature outside today was only 112
º
at 5pm! I have a tendency attimes to think about the grass on the other side of the fence. While home I was really wishing it were alittle bit warmer and drier…..then when we got here, well that’s right just a little bit cooler and somerain would have been great. That is all probably in part due to the fact that I am always going. I have ahard time stopping all movement for any extended period of time.Is our relationship with Jesus at all like this scenario? Do we have a tendency to continually be askinghim for something more, wishing things were a little different in our very busy lives? Does it matter if it is better health or more wealth, or maybe we aren’t really happy with the way something is going atwork or even at church. It doesn’t matter who we are, it seems we all go through seasons where we areseeking something different. We all can be so busy we can’t even see what it is that God isdoing with us and for us right where we are.Early in scripture God gives us ten simple rules to follow. As I recallit is in Exodus chapter 20 verse 8 where He says to remember the Sabbath day andkeep it holy. God knows that we are in great need of a time of renewal. Thatrenewal needs to happen weekly, but also for extended periods of time throughoutthe year. At times we can become so busy and distracted by all that we are doing, wecan forget all that God has given to each of us.Renewal is a time when you can remove the distractions of life and be……renewed. AllowingGod to transform you and bring you back to the beautiful creation that He has called and designed youto be. It is so important that we stop moving at times and just listen.Over the next month take a little time out of your busy schedules and find time for Jesus. Hewon’t disappoint you, in fact He might even be able to give you the very important break that you needso that you can come back renewed and energized!Until next month, lighten up and live.Your soon to be renewed pastor,Pastor Joe

So when He had washed their feet, taken His garments, and sat down again, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me Teacher and Lord, and  you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. John 13:12-17 NKJV
