Pastor WalterCross Talk

So far this season of Lent, we have been talking about our journey to the Cross. We know that we have to prepare for it, to spend time in the wilderness, to deny ourselves, and seek God. I don’t know about you, but I really wish that I could skip the time of preparation and the pain of Good Friday and go straight to the joy of Easter. Our faith journey would be so much easier if we could just skip the difficult parts. How many of us look forward to the chal-lenges of the wilderness, the cost of discipleship, or the journey to the cross? Much is asked of us, are we willing to give it?

In Mark 8, we read about a conversation between Jesus and the disciples asking, “who do you say that I am?” Friends, during this season of Lent, we have the opportunity to answer that very question for ourselves. Who is Je-sus in your life? Is he your savior? Your Lord? What does it mean to make those claims? I find comfort in saying that Jesus is my savior because that puts it all on him. The cross is his to bear for me, but do I have that same bur-den. But to say that Jesus is Lord means so much more. When we proclaim with our lives that Jesus is Lord, it means that we submit to his teachings and authority in our lives. We want to emulate him in thought, word, and deed. We are called to a different kind of life, and which means that we are willing to carry our cross, to die to the world, and to be raised into a new life. To say that Jesus is Lord means that’s it's not just about what Jesus did, but how we respond.

It’s in light of this that I find comfort in the wilderness. I love this time to prepare, to seek, and to grow in my rela-tionship with God. I don’t see Lent as a time to give up something frivolous but as a time of transformation and growth. We have to learn to submit to God and to prepare ourselves for the journey ahead. It's through this sub-mission that we find our freedom, and we can be prepared to take up our cross and follow.

Friends, I hope that this season of Lent remains Holy and that you are stretched and grow in your relationship with God. May God’s grace be ever present, and you experience the transformation and growth to prepare you to be Easter people.

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.
