Be inspired by this quote, which highlights one of our everyday problems that need solving. On Sunday, August 8, 2021, the Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost, Pastora Ashley Gonzales, Kingston United Methodist Church pastor, was our guest preacher and preached on the theme, “Food In A Famine,” based on Scripture from 1 Kings 19:4-8. Elijah, feeling overwhelmed, told God he had had enough. Pastora Gonzales admonished us, saying, “sometimes, when you feel like you’re going to die, all you need is a snack and a nap.”
We’re delighted to have had Pastora Ashley Gonzales here with us. Thanks to the new partnership that PUMC has with KUMC, she is now part of our clergy team. On behalf of PUMC, we welcome her on board! It was an enjoyable service, with many of our Kingston UMC siblings worshipping with us in person.
We invite you to come worship with us on Sunday. “When you’re isolated and lonely and have nothing more to give, God listens and responds to your cries,” says Pastora Gonzales. “Elijah was not alone, after all, and neither are you,” she also noted.
