“When It Is Time to Re…” I must admit that sometimes I am guilty of starting a “rabbit trail” and other times I need to step in to reel the group back in due to someone else’s rabbit trail. And sometimes I find myself both creating and having to end the rabbit trail! It is not unusual in meetings or in life to get off track, and hopefully in those cases we recognize a need to refocus. Some of my favorite Bible stories come from the period after the Babylonian Exile, in which the Jewish people returned to Jerusalem to rebuild after seventy years. Ezra rebuilt the altar and reintroduced the Torah, Nehemiah rebuilt the city wall, and Haggai rebuilt the temple. Each of these individuals had a burden for their homeland, their faith, and their worship to be restored. Each of these individuals also challenged the people to refocus on God and on the important tasks at hand. When I arrived at this church four months ago, I sensed a burden amongst many in this congregation for various parts of the church to be rebuilt. Many wanted to see a renewed sense of growth within the worship services; others wanted to see our children and youth programs rebuilt. Regardless of the specific burden, I have sensed an overall desire for God to do something new in our midst…and I share that desire as well! I believe that out of these burdens, we have an opportunity to “refocus” together. Each week of our next series, the sermon title will begin with the letters re: revive, respond, remember, and reinvest. For each one there will be an opportunity to refocus on both the personal level and on the church level. Overall, I believe it will be a tremendous opportunity for us to begin to the lay the foundation for whatever incredible things God desires to do in our midst. At the end of the series, we will have an opportunity to respond to the call to refocus by making commitments with our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness (the UMC vows of membership) for the upcoming year. Whether you feel off track personally or you simply have a burden for God to do something new through our church, I hope that you will come refocus with us starting this Sunday!  Anthony
