Pastor Patricia’s Pauses


A New Year is here! Welcome 2020! I was just thinking this week about the fact that our twin daughters, Morgan and Taylor, will be graduating high school in 2020. When they were born, in 2002, I was that geeky, nerdy mom who figured out what year they would graduate high school. 2020. It sounded so very far away and futuristic. Yet, here we are.


Most parents know that a child’s life seems like it flies by from being born to age 5. Then, before you know it, they are graduating high school in a blink of an eye! That causes me to wonder about how God senses time. God created time itself. God is Lord of all, including time. The average lifespan for men and women in the United States is 78.87 years according to the Internet. And if it is on the internet, it must be true, right?

So, if the average lifespan is 79 years (just to round it up), that is probably like a half of a blink of one of God’s eyes!


As we enter the New Year, we may be thinking of our futures, our resolutions and marking of time in general. I’ve been thinking about our future at First United Methodist of Douglas. My first 6 months as your pastor has certainly flown by! I have learned so much about you, the congregation, as well as about myself as a new pastor. I pray that I have been able to be the pastor that you wanted when you hired me. I have learned that even though we are a small church (based on worship attendance weekly), we are mighty!


And so, thinking about our future as a church family, I pray that we continue to bless each other and be a blessing to the community of Douglas in 2020!
