: N.J. Governor to Resign Amid Lawsuit : N.J. Governor to Resign Amid Lawsuit

Let me begin by paraphrasing Matthew 7:3,”get the telephone pole out of your own eye before you look for the sawdust in your neighbors.” I do not want to cast any stones here, actually I think Gov. McGreevey did something today that we can all learn from. Regardless of the circumstances that led up to this confession, Gov McGreevey did an unbelievable stand up thing today. He faced the world, took all of the responsibilty for his actions and there consequences, and asked for forgiveness from everyone involved. May we all remember this example when we are faced with a similar situation in our own life. Hiding under a rock and hoping it will go away only makes the situation worse. Let God help you through any situation and he promises in James 1 that we will become stronger.

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
