“The Dog Days of August”

Being pastor of Arlington’s First United Methodist Church brings me such joy. As I watched our students lead our worship this past weekend I could not help but feel the pride well up. The adult leaders who work with our youth and students do a remarkable job and we are fortunate to have them. Make sure and give them a pat on the back.

In fact just last week we also had a wonderful Vacation Bible School for our youngsters and what a marvelous time they had learning about Jesus and the historic faith in fun ways—crafts, snacks, the Bible—what could be better. This is yet another example of the good work our church staff does with spiritual formation at every age-level in this church and we should be so proud of our folks who lead and sacrifice for the Kingdom. The adult volunteers were outstanding in their ability to put their own needs and wants aside for the sake of our children. This is what agape love is all about.

I hope you will join me in encouraging the many amazing ministries that take place thanks to our staff and dedicated lay folks. Offer someone a good word today. Tell them you appreciate their efforts. It is a good thing to stand close to these folks and soak up their spirit!
