Fleetwood Mac and First UMC

I heard the song “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac a few days ago. The refrain goes:

Don’t stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here,
It’ll be here, better than before,
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone.

I think this pretty well sums up our task at Coffeyville First UMC. We can learn from our past, we can honor and remember it, but we cannot bring back the way things used to be, we can only move forward into what could be. Our task is not to dwell on what has happened to us, but to focus on what God would have us do next.
