Reflections on Faith and Community
On this page, you will find weekly reflections on life and faith. My hope is that, in some way, they will prove helpful to you in your daily living. You can also find them on the church's YouTube Channel in the "Weekly Word" playlist. May God bless you on the spiritual journey.
Andrew S. Odom
Jesus could have simply ignored the crowds, something he had done on occasion before, but he didn’t. As Mark puts it, “he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.” It is an insight into how we can approach life. Even our best laid plans may not happen the way we would like them to. We can throw our hands up in frustration, or we can be open to the possibilities and look for God’s interrupting hand at work. Sometimes, it’s the interruptions in our lives that can become filled with divine purpose.
