A Message from Pastor Fred Mast

Greetings to our Sedona UMC Family & Friends,

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faith-fulness continues through all generations. ~ Psalms 100 ~

As I sit here in my office today penning a few thoughts on my first official day back in the office, I feel so grateful and thankful to so many—including our great and amazing God. I am so blessed to have this new opportunity to care for my body as the temple God created it to be. I have felt so overwhelmed at the outpouring of love we have received I don’t know where to begin giving thanks. The words of the Psalmist seem to ring so true for me on this special day.

What is usually a slower time (if there is such a thing) around the church caught us all by surprise with the news of by-pass surgery. Praise God for gifted, caring, diligent doctors and medical professionals, for loving brothers and sisters who have prayed fervently, and praise God that I am now on this side of the news and the surgery.

I the spirit of thanksgiving I have so many to Thank—I truly don’t know where to start or have adequate words. I owe my life and well-being to my primary care physician, and to all the doctors and care givers who cared for me during these past two months.

To our remarkable family. I owe so much to my family who all stepped up in so many ways during and especially after my surgery. Families are so truly special and important to all of us, and mine is truly incredible. I love you all dearly and praise God for each of you! To all of you—our church family, Thank You for all the prayers, support, generosity, cards, and for loving us through this difficult time. We have been involved and part of a number of churches over the years, and there are none better than Sedona UMC. You are an incredible bunch of dear friends and words can’t express the level of care, comfort, and love you all have provided to us.

And to our church leadership and staff, you have amazed us at the way in which you have stepped up in my absence. I dare not mention names because invariably I would miss someone (but you know who you are). SUMC is what the definition of church is and should be. A dedicated group of people who love each other dearly and work together for the furthering of God’s kingdom here on earth.

Thank you also to our tremendous Sedona community which we now call home and are so blessed to be a part of, so many have offered prayers and support and they have truly been felt. To our colleagues and members of the Desert Southwest Conference who have held us up in prayer, visit-ed me while I was in the hospital and during my recovery—Thank You! To the members of many of our sister churches who have sent cards, called, and visited—you’re the greatest!

God has truly blessed our family and continues to amaze us with His good and great works. It is easy to give thanks in the good times—but let me tell you—this experience has once again shown me just how incredible, remarkable, and amazing our great God is. God is truly good—all the time!

Grace & Peace,
Pastor Fred
