October was a busy month. Writing and recording spots for the radio plus keeping up with the facebook page! It has been wonderful to be in contact with so many people from so many places. John Wesley, father of Methodism, once said that the world was his parish. Think what he could have accomplished with social media. In his day, he rode a horse around the circuit preaching wherever he could, outdoors or indoors, it made no difference. He was unafraid to spread the good news wherever he was even while he was being taunted and heckled. We have it good these days when we can spread the Word from the comfort of our own homes, or do we? The question is, are we too comfortable where we are and are we ready to meet the challenge of going beyond the walls and out into the world to meet people where they are face to face? Then again, think of all the people we meet face to face on the fan page. We cover parts of the east and the west and the north and the south every day. That is amazing! I wonder what John Wesley would think of that?
Jesus commissioned the disciples and us to spread the Good News of the Gospel with these words; “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
Jesus has blessed us with the tools to tell others about him and the promise to be with us even when the going gets tough. What more do we need?
God bless you!
