Pastor Patricia’s Pauses

Here we are in October! This is perhaps one of my favorite seasons! I love football, pumpkin spice, the leaves changing and sweater weather! This Fall is even more special to me because we are finally moving to Douglas!

Our twins are not so sure about the move. I think they want to have the same house to come home to for breaks from college. But the important lesson here is that home is where the heart is. The building isn’t as important as the people who are there. Given time, I’m sure they will adjust and come to love and appreciate Douglas as their new home.

My semester has started up in Seminary. So, if you see my car in the parking lot at late hours I’m probably Zooming for a class. This semester I’m taking three classes: New Testament 1, Trauma and Preaching and The Church Renewal for Mission. I am finding them all remarkably interesting. My favorite so far is Trauma and Preaching.

We all have gone through trauma in our lives. As God heals us, it becomes a part of the tapestry that makes us up as human beings. With God’s grace, we are not overcome by the trauma. Instead we can heal and grow. It is my belief that God doesn’t intentionally cause pain in our lives, but rather it is because of the sinful nature we all have naturally that causes pain. In our Spiritual journey in this life, I hope and pray we may all become people of peace in a chaotic world.

Election time is coming up. I hope we all make sure we get to the polls as it is an important privilege we have in this country. And I have to say that I’ll be glad when I don’t see the campaign ads anymore!

Have a blessed October. Keep warm and stay safe.
