October 2020 Pastor's Pen

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water everyone expected they would be asked the “half empty or half full question" Instead with a smile on her face she inquired" How heavy is this glass of water"? Answers were called out 8oz-20oz. She replied," the absolute weight doesn't matter". It depends on how long I hold it. If l hold it a minute no problem, if l hold it an hour I’ll have an ache in my arm. If l hold it for a day my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case the weight of the glass doesn't change, but the longer l hold it the heavier it becomes.



She continued" the stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing much happens. Think about them for a bit longer and they begin to hurt. If you think about them all day long you become paralyzed, incapable of doing anything.





                                                       Yours in Christ,


                                                       Rev. Walter Coy
