Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” 

Pastor Karin’s recent sermon evoked a thought-provoking challenge: What are you addicted to? What can you “fast” from for Lent that will enlarge, at the least, your compassion for those who face addiction in a life disrupting way? As 2019 Americans, perhaps something we are all addicted to is our self-sufficiency. We resist the idea, though may intuit, that God often reaches us at a deeper, more meaningful level IN our “neediness”. We were never meant to go this life alone. Through our shared “wrestling”, could our faith and belief find an anchoring strength? Fallston UMC has trained laypeople who can come alongside you in a one to one, confidential setting… not as those with all the answers but as those whose hearts and minds are ready to fully listen and witness to the real struggles of this life.
