Light of Day

Phelps acknowledges photo showing Olympic swimming star smoking from marijuana pipe – ESPN.

I am not about to judge Michael Phelps (although I wish for his sake and ours as well that he would have made a better choice), but this is a classic case for us all to think about.  Sure we would stop something…when caught.  In the dark, things tend to grow moldy and nasty.  The light of day is at times the greatest antiseptic for our lives.  The question for me (and now you because you are reading it) is “why wait?”  Find a friend you can trust and share your struggles.  Get help before it is too late.  Maybe even try the church?

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.
