February 17, 2019 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

Life today can get complicated. There are so many ways to get caught up in a variety of concerns every day. We all have people to see, places to go, commitments to keep and things to do. It is easy to lose sight of the meaning of it all. What is it all about? The readings the church gives us today provides the answer, it is all about the choices we make that give meaning to our days. We have received the gift of life from our loving God. Let me use a question that was presented to many of us while learning our religion from the Baltimore Catechism.
Why did God Create us? Answer: God created us to know love and serve God in this life and to be happy with God forever in the next life, this is our life goal!
What a blessing to serve and love God as we simply look around our faith community who gathers weekly together. We may see young and old, those who are single and families, women and men of all sizes who are diverse, yet, we are all here together. May we who come together in our Mid Mon Valley community find ways to be inspired through each others presence to be willing to worship and rededicate ourselves to the gospel. May we continue to try to serve God by serving and helping one another as one parish so that we can keep our Faith Alive!
