Pastor WalterCross Talk

This summer has been busy, even with the lack of rain and the low water levels in the Frio River, its been a busy time. I am happy to say that as I write this I am listening to the beautiful sound of rain. Something we have been praying for daily for most of the year, and we are always so joyful when we receive it. Which reminds me of a modern-day parable, no this one you won’t find in the Bible, but you will find it in the Christian movie “Facing the Giants.”

“There were two farmers who desperately needed rain, and both of them prayed for rain. But only one of them went out and prepared his fields to receive it. Which one do you think trusted God to send the rain; the answer the one who prepared his fields for it?”

We often talk about rain as God’s blessings poured out on creation. And it’s easy to see why. Rain nourishes the ground, greens up our grass and trees, restores the river. Rain is significant. In the modern-day secular vernacular, the term “make it rain” refers to money in abundance falling from the sky. So in light of seeing rain as God’s blessing, how do we prepare to receive the rain for which we ask?

This month, there is a city-wide revival being hosted by five churches. From what we gather, this is the first one like it in at least 20 years. I know many of you have been praying for it, and the impact that it will have on the community. But like our parable, we are called to do more than just pray for the rain to come; we have work to be done to prepare the fields. How are we as a congregation preparing our hearts to receive the rain? I invite you to attend as many nights of the revival as you can, invite your friends to the revival, come with an open heart and mind, and meet new people, be welcoming and model Christ. Pray for those who do not have a church home, who are going to show up and that God will speak to their hearts. And let's prepare for the rain that is coming.

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.
