Church briefs

First Baptist Church of Rushville

Vermont is a pretty state. I had the privilege of living there for eight years, and experienced its green mountains, rolling hills, active wildlife and striking, autumn leaves. The winters can be harsh, though. Sub-zero temperatures, wind chills and several feet of snow were not uncommon. Driving was precarious, at times, to say the least.

I think back to times I got stuck while driving. It was not always easy to discern where the ditch was, buried alongside those backwoods, country roads. More than once, I heard the sound of my tires spinning, but the car was going nowhere! No matter how much I stepped on the gas pedal or tired to give it just the right touch, I was still in the same place.

Maybe you can relate to my getting stuck, except your getting stuck is not in the snow. It is in your life. Somehow, you find yourself stuck in a “ditch” and no matter how much effort you exert to get out of it, it seems like you are going nowhere. You don’t know how you got there, but it doesn’t matter now. You just want to get out and get on your way.

This week at First Baptist Church, we are going to talk what to do when it seems that you are expending a lot of energy, but getting nowhere and accomplishing little. There is a way out. We hope to see you at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
