Welcome !

 
Let us consider how to stir up one another …. Hebrews 10:24

Before we degenerate into a “so’s your mother” shouting match, let’s look a bit deeper.  These seemingly taunting words found in scripture, are not actually as inflammatory as they seem.  The completed passage goes on to say, “Let us consider how to stir up one another in love and good works.”  I especially like how Eugene Peterson expounds on this verse in his paraphrase, The Message, saying: “Let’s see how inventive we can be in encouraging love and helping out ….”

Jeffersontown UMC is seeking to grow into this vision.  A gathering of fellow sojourners, committed to one another as we strive to grow closer to our Lord Jesus Christ.  To this aim, we would invite you to consider joining us as our guest in worship (8:30am chapel service or 10:50am blended service), or a fellowship event (absolutely free dinners on Wednesday nights at 5:30 – 6:30pm).

JUMC is a mid-sized congregation comprised of people of all ages, from all walks of life.  You will find younger families as well as individuals who have experienced many years of life!  We experience all the same joys and frustrations as anyone else, and we grow stronger from being in community with others.

As the new pastor of this fascinating church family, having been here for less than a year, I am learning what a blessing these people and this ministry is to J-town and surrounding areas.  My strengths as a pastor come in a simple feeling of comfort with people, an encouraging spirit and a flair for creativity. 

It is now my thirtieth year as a pastor (in just now my 5th church appointment), and I can look back and see how blessed I have been.  What do you see when you look back at your journey so far?  I enthusiastically recommend your coming to check us out sometime.  And, oh yeah, I am Bob Howell, and I approve of this message!

***   THIS SUNDAY     December 15, 2019   ***

 
Rose Aspinall, author of the narrations in this work, when asked what the title Love Made a Way meant to her, replied:
 
 
Love made a way!  We don't know why - not really.  Who could understand love like that?   We do know it was God's decision - not man's.  We could not - nor would we have, made a way back to Him.  It was God himself Who said, no cost is too high.  From the foundation of the earth, He decided, I will come for them.  
 

This rescue was beyond reason - beyond human reason, that is.  But thankfully for us, God does not reason like men.  Jesus came and when He did, the word says, He was a fragrant offering.  So, just breathe.  Breathe Him in.  Accept that you are loved so much by your creator - that Love made a way!
 
May the Christmas holidays this year leave you reflective of all your blessings, first and foremost being the gift of Christ to all who believe.
