CLD’s Message for April 2019

This season of Lent is a time when each of us is journeying with God toward Easter in a personal way. This year I dedicated myself to reading a daily scripture from both Old and New Testaments. Just a few weeks ago, my friend and I began studying parts of the Old Testament together. This is sometimes a challenge for me because of the history, geography, and timelines that I have always found challenging to remember and, sometimes, to understand. Discussing it with a friend has made a big difference for me. There is something in the sharing and discussion that helps me understand and see the impact on my life today and I am grateful.

How is your journey this Lent? Is God opening your eyes in a new and different way? Share with someone close to you how you are journeying with God this Lent.

Welcome to our new Community members of Richmond Walks 130 and 131! We look forward to meeting you this Saturday, April 13th at our Monthly Gathering! Making new friends is a treasure, and we welcome you! Our Gathering is held at Bethia UMC, on Winterpock Rd in Chesterfield. We begin at 6 PM with a covered-dish fellowship meal, followed by music and worship at 6:30 PM. Childcare is provided by Bethia’s Safe Sanctuaries-certified staff.

I pray that each of our journeys on the Walk to Emmaus — whether it began for you last month, last year, or a decade ago — continue to help us see God in a new and beautiful way.

Gratefully and with Love,
Susie Stough
