After Sunday: Walking in the Way of Jesus

Rachel challenged us to consider what it means to have “faith”.  How does faith manifest itself?  We heard again the call of Jesus to his first disciples (Matthew 4:18-22).  We sang “The Summons“.

The second phrase in our Mission at First UMC Burlington is “Walking in the Way of Jesus”.  Dangerous Walk

What awaits us as we step out in faith on this journey?  What makes it worth our while?  We are “A Worshiping Community”.  We aim to “Walk in the Way of Jesus”.  What are you willing to risk along the way?


Here is an article about a path that might give us something to ponder …The World’s Most Dangerous Trail.

Want to talk about sex, politics, spirituality? So do I. I grew up in a religious home in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Our country was reeling from assassinations and the devastation of the Viet Nam War. Looking for something beautiful, I got a degree in music, married the love of my life and had children. Looking for God, I then went to seminary. Looking for something that might transform the world, I became a local church pastor. Now, I’m always looking for people who want to talk about important things. I cherish conversations with emerging leaders, people who are antsy to try an idea they believe would change the world for the better. I’d would love to hear from you.
