Messages from the secretary...

Good Afternoon to All –

We received a little rain here at the church and it is sorely needed. Out at the ranch, we are starting to get “the cracks” in the ground. I was looking out our kitchen window the other day and there was a couple of bunnies in and among the cattle, turkeys talking in the background, the birds were singing so lovely, the hummingbirds were in battle over sugar water; all was existing peacefully with each other. As the sun started to rise, transformation started to take place… the animals started to drift off to the pasture or wherever they go… and as the drops of dew dripped from the fence, it was like looking through a kaleidoscope at all beautiful colors…. God Is Amazing! I pray we could all get along like the animals and look at color through the drops of dew.

P.S. I just have to tell you about what I discovered! I was in our wash room where we do all the linens for the cabins and notice what looked like a rubber gasket sticking out around the top of the washing machine. I thought, I better push that back in place… I gave it a push and out popped the head of a non-poison snake and it stuck its tongue out at me! I thought about putting the machine in a spin cycle until the little bugger was cross eyed, but just left the lid open so it could escape. Oddly enough, we had a couple and their daughter staying in the cabins and he lectures all over Texas about Texas snakes. I call him the snake man. One thing he taught me, and my husband agrees, there are “good snakes” and to let those live. They actually do control rodents and such. I still have doubts about “good snakes” since I just about wet my pants! Life in the country!

Diddy for the Day!

Pastor WalterCross Talk

I don’t know about you, but I love Spring! Spring is my favorite time of year, the beautiful days, the vibrant colors of the wildflowers, and its warm enough to plant a garden. Every day, I go out and check for new blossoms and fruit, and am continually amazed at how much a plant can grow overnight. I am not alone in my passion for gardening, many of you will understand from where I am coming. This year, our garden is a little different. We started most of our plants from seed, rather than purchasing ready to plant seedlings from the store. The planting of a seed and watching it germinate, and grow into something new is appropriate for this Easter Season.

Throughout the New Testament, seeds are used as metaphors for resurrection. In his first letter to the church at Corinth, Paul writes:

35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?” 36 Fool! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 And as for what you sow, you do not sow the body that is to be, but a bare seed, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. 38 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body.”

In this passage, which often read at funerals, Paul is telling us that death is a natural part of life. It isn’t the end, but a beginning. New life comes from death; this is an easy way to look at the message of Easter. Jesus died for us, was buried for us, so that we might have new life in him. The joy of Easter is that we have an opportunity to experience new life, not just in the coming kingdom, but here and now. Through the grace afforded at the cross, seeds were planted. Christ calls us to die to ourselves and be resurrected with him into a new life, and through this takes the ugliness of our sin and makes something beautiful out of it. Friends, as we continue through this season of Easter, I invite you to continue to spend time in study, prayer, and through your growing relationship with Christ to daily die and be reborn into new life.

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.
