Pastor's Letter, January 23, 2015

Dear Friends,
There is a saying:  Perception defines reality.   What we perceive as true, shapes what we believe to be true.   But our perceptions can be influenced by more that “just the facts.”  Our personal experiences,  our beliefs, our (limited) knowledge can all help to shape our perception.  We see only one facet of a situation, but having a second set of eyes looking at a situation, may give us a fuller picture.    Someone else’s perception can help us to see, more clearly,   what truly “is.”   
This week we will “see” what happens when we look at things through God’s eyes and find that God sees things differently.  How can looking through the “God lenses”   in our own lives help us to see and understand more clearly, the reality in our lives.   
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday.  Please continue to pray for the mission of Buckhall UMC:  to make disciples of Jesus Christ. 
Yours in Christ,
