Probably More Than You Wanted to Know, But

February 9, 2018

From something appearing on our church’s site soon —

Joe Scheets was raised in our church, and heard God’s call on his life during the ministries of our own Dr. E. M. Leckrone and Rev. Wm. J. Causer.

He comes to us after retiring from forty years of parish ministry in our Conference to serve as our Part Time Assistant Pastor. With a smile, he describes his work among us as Homebound Visitation and Other Good Stuff.

He and Patty have a son, Joseph, who lives in a group home in Cincinnati, and a puppy named Martin who lets them live with him.

“My top two favorite Bible verses,” says Dr. Scheets, “are John 10:10, where Christ Jesus offers us life in all its fullness, and 1st Thessalonians 5:11, where St. Paul tells us to encourage each other.”

From a song Patty sang recently as I accompanied her on guitar when her sister Beth married Charley —

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you
— Rascal Flatts’ Bless The Broken Road

From a Bible Study in 1985, when a saint I pastored named Miriam pointed me to this verse —

The lines of my life have fallen in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.  Psalm 16:6
