Pastoral Remarks

"How is it with your soul?” I have found myself asking that question in a lot of different settings over the last few days. I ask you to take a moment to pause right now and reflect on that question for yourself. "How are you doing? What are you feeling?"

We are all aware of the spectrum of emotions that have welled up inside of us since Sunday night. The Columbus FUMC family held a Church Conference Sunday evening to vote on its relationship to The United Methodist Church. The decision to disaffiliate from the UMC passed with a majority vote of 223 to 107. There are some who are happy with the outcome and eager to move forward in a church that is separate from the UMC. I am hopeful for your future and pray the Holy Spirit empowers you in this new season. I know there are others that are disappointed and even possibly heartbroken at the outcome. My heart breaks for you, and I am praying for the Lord to comfort you and bring about something new. We are all filled with a level of sadness that things will be different for everyone.

Where do we go from here? What will change and what will not change? Where is God in all of this? I hope to see you Sunday as we begin to reflect on the journey going forward. Let us be in prayer for one another in this season of grief and opportunity.
