Woke up this morning still smiling from yesterday. July 1st marked the beginning of my 3rd year at Metropolitan UMC in Severn and yesterday they showed me why they are the “best UMC on Queenstown Road.”
Of course, the church is not open yet because of COVID-19, however, this did not stop them from presenting gifts to me while we did our FB Live worship service. I was so thankful for that.
So, now service is over, I’m definitely ready to go, but one of our members asked me to wait around for a cake delivery. I’m trying to watch my calories, but sure, I’ll take a cake home.
Well, what the Pastor did not know was, as we stepped outside to look at our marquee, my wonderful members came down Queenstown Road, pulled into our parking lot to do a drive-by welcome back celebration.
I had no idea and was totally humbled by the outpouring of love which they poured on me! Metropolitan, you “sho nuff” got me. I thank every member and committee who thought it not robbery to pour your love into me on yesterday.
As I begin my 13th year as a pastor under appointment in the UMC, I am truly excited to see what God has in store for us as we continue on this journey!!
Grace & Peace,
