Good Afternoon to All!

Well, it is nice to see the sun shine today and dry up some of the puddles of rain. Not complaining, but the sun is nice to see. The only update on the sick / hospitalize is
Jack Hallum had a good report on Monday. He went to the oncology and no growth in the tumor. Next CT scan will be in February. If you have any updates on folks, please let me know by email. Thanks!

Here are a couple of diddies for the day!
An ad for St. Joseph's Episcopal Church has a picture of two hands holding stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments are inscribed and a headline that reads, "For fast, fast, fast relief, take two tablets."
When the restaurant next to the Lutheran Church put out a big sign with red letters that said, "Open Sundays," the church reciprocated with its own message: "We are open on Sundays, too."

Pastor WalterCross Talk

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. Psalm 68:19

School started this week here in Leakey, and I am blessed to be able to see the school children arriving at the campus each day. I often times pray for the students, staff, and parents as I watch them filter into the school to start their day.

As the children unload from the cars and the buses with backpacks full of supplies and books, it's fun to watch them hustle into school with excitement and enthusiasm. I see some children with backpacks that are almost as big as they are! Sometimes their backpacks are so loaded with all those heavy books that it is just about more than they can carry! It reminds me of my own time in school, when I carried a backpack that often weighed more than 50lbs.

Life is a lot like that too. Sometimes we have some pretty heavy burdens that we try to carry around with us. We tend to want to drag around all of the pain, grief, and brokenness in our lives. We love to carry those burdens!

Well, I have some good news for you! You don't have to carry all those worries around with you! The Bible tells us that God will carry those burdens for us. So, if you started school this week with a load of worries and problems, you can give them to Jesus. He will carry them for you. Lord, we are thankful that we do not have to carry the heavy bur-dens of life around on our backs.

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.
