Had a wonderful time with a member of the congregation as he shared about life experiences and updated me on how things are right now. It reminded me how powerful our stories are. We ALL have them and while to us they may seem of no consequence, these life stories can speak volumes to others. But how often do we slow down enough to listen? I am the chief among guilty people for being on the move and on the run and do not take the time to simply listen. When I do, I am ushered into a brand new world of possibilities, encouragement, and affirmation. Take some time this week to share. Take some time this week…to listen.

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.
