CONVERSATION FROM THE FARMERS MARKET
As a woman walked by with a pep in her step and a smile on her face, I commented, “Love the basket, where did you get it.” And the story unfolded. The woman grew up at Fifth Ave. United Methodist Church. Her parents were involved in Sunday School, Choir, and much more. The families name is Carr. Her parents have since passed. The basket was her mom’s. It was a french farmers market basket intricately woven and on wheels. She told me, “When I bring the basket, I bring mom along with me.” God’s love is intricately woven into our lives. This basket is intricately woven, and a connection to a relationship that passes on Christian beliefs. Look for your basket today! Take God’s love out into the world. Peace My Friends, Rev. Amy.
“Such love has no fear because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of judgment, and this shows that his love has not been perfected in us. We love each other as a result of his loving us first.” 1 John 5: 18-19

What do you call God? Elohim, Yahweh, El Roi, Adonai. These are all names that describe God. They hold various meanings. Elohim, references God’s power and might. Elohim the only supreme and true God. Yahweh is the proper name of the divine person. The LORD. El Roi – God Who Sees – and oversees all creation and the affairs of people. Adonai as written in Deuteronomy 6:4 names God who alone is the head over all. But is it right or righteous for us to place God in our box and give him or her a name? Something to think about today and the upcoming week. Whatever you call God: Have you called God today? Speak with God and find Joy.
PEACE MY FRIENDS
Rev. Amy Anderson
