Dear Friends...

 

 

            I recently saw a sign that read “One person can only do so much”. Intentionally the

word “only” was crossed out. Now the sign read “One person can do so much”.

            Stone UMC offers living proof of that statement. Flood buckets, health kits and school kits were assembled because each “one” of you did your part. Children’s ministry happens each week because “one” of you says yes to the opportunity. Worship happens each Sunday because “one” of you shows up. The building is cared for and staff is supported because “one” of you fulfills your financial pledge. What happens when we put all the “ones” together?  We become a community of faith, the living body of Christ.

            Helen Keller, both blind and deaf, wrote, “I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.”

            Thank you for doing the something you can do. Together we make a difference in Christ’s name.

            In the Name of the ONE who Gives Us All Life …   Pastor Sarah
