News from St. Andrew By
Sea United Methodist Church
Psalms By The Sea
“Love one another, as I have loved you.”
Jesus said that. Jesus
expects us to do that
to love one another. The truth is that it's easier
said than done.
There is probably no other more familiar and
simultaneously more difficult passage to live out than this one. This
commandment is challenging because human beings can be “onery”
I spotted an “onery” one this morning when I was shaving! It is
simply difficult to love each other the way Jesus loves us.
So it’s encouraging to me to see examples that prove that this kind of love is possible.
When I hear of the
sacrificial acts of firefighters in West, Texas, when I see images in Boston, of people running toward the
danger zone to aid the wounded during the recent violence, I realize it is possible to live out Jesus’
Locally, I watch as people in our community give in quiet, sacrificial, understated ways to
children and older adults in need.
At St. Andrew, I see missioners reaching out in the name of Jesus to aid
the underprivileged here and in other lands, I watch as the hungry are fed, families are encouraged, and
faith is cultivated through the loving acts of quiet service that so define the Christian life.
The wonderful
thing is that these acts are done for those who are pleasant or “onery,” for the poor and the rich, haves and

Jesus' love is shown through our actions.
Love is not about feeling good, it’s about doing
So, love one another!
Tuesdays, May 7

Coligny Beach
Connie Borgianini
Enjoy God’s creation as you start your day with us at the beach on Tuesday mornings in May. We’ll focus
our time together on the Book of Psalms and our edge
water surroundings. As we survey this time-
less collection of prayers, hymns and poems, we’ll reflect on our own faith journey and consider how read-
ing and praying the Psalms can deepen our spirituality.
Bring along your favorite beach chair and Bible (and maybe a cup of coffee and some bug spray). We’ll
gather near the end of the boardwalk and take in God’s Word as we soak in our surroundings. In case of
rain, we’ll gather in the pavilion on the left side of the entrance to Coligny Beach Park.
Please email Connie (
) to let her know of your interest in being part of this
small group study.
