Good afternoon!
Here is the diddy for the day!
A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables; and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Joshua is watching you." He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Joshua is watching you." Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot. "Yep," the parrot confessed, and then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you." The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?" "Moses," replied the bird.
"Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of people would name a bird Moses?"   "The kind of people that would name a Rottweiler Joshua."

Pastor WalterCross Talk

The divisiveness of our country is an area that I have really struggled with lately. It seems that as a nation we have sought out ways to divide ourselves and see each other as adversaries rather than friends. Our divisiveness is apparent in our Government, in our interactions on social media, and what’s most disturbing is in our denomination. We have lost our ability to find common ground and have respectful conversations over difficult topics.

In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians, he talks about how we are all different, but we are one body. Some might have the gift of sight and be an eye, others an ear and have a gift to listen, and yet others the gift of being hands and feet in service. While Paul recognizes that we are all different, he urges us not to discredit one another. He tells us that we cannot say to another member of the body, “I have no need of you.” Each of us brings something unique and beautiful to the table, and we need all those gifts to function as the Body of Christ.

Right now, we face a challenge in our country and our church. We have too many voices saying, I do not need you, or you are wrong for what you believe. We would instead focus on how we are different, and why the other needs to be just like us. Then we wonder why we are so angry, frustrated, and divided over ideologies. What would the world look like, if we chose to see our commonalities first, and used that as a means to engage in conversation about our diversity? We need all the gifts, graces, and ideas that are brought to the table. Friends, let us be more like Paul encourages us, to celebrate our diversity and to sit down at a meal together to talk about how our differences make us stronger.

I invite you all this month to be in prayer about how divided and broken we are as a country and a church. I ask that you take time each day to pray for our Government at all levels, and for each of those that were elected to serve, whether you agree with their position or not. I ask that you pray for all of the delegates to the called session of General Conference, especially as they meet the 23-26 February in St Luis Missouri. Let us all pray that we can see past that which divides us, past our ideologies, and that God’s will be done in our lives, church, and our country.

Grace and peace,
Pastor Walter

History of the United Methodist Church

On April 23, 1968, The United Methodist Church was created when Bishop Reuben H. Mueller, representing The Evangelical United Brethren Church, and Bishop Lloyd C. Wicke of The Methodist Church joined hands at the constituting General Conference in Dallas, Texas. With the words, "Lord of the Church, we are united in Thee, in Thy Church and now in The United Methodist Church," the new denomination was given birth by two churches that had distinguished histories and influential ministries in various parts of the world.

Theological traditions steeped in the Protestant Reformation and Wesleyanism, similar ecclesiastical structures, and relationships that dated back almost two hundred years facilitated the union. In the Evangelical United Brethren heritage, for example, Philip William Otterbein, the principal founder of the United Brethren in Christ, assisted in the ordination of Francis Asbury to the superintendency of American Methodist work. Jacob Albright, through whose religious experience and leadership the Evangelical Association was begun, was nurtured in a Methodist class meeting following his conversion.
