Good Afternoon –

It has really been a beautiful day! Here is the diddy for the day!

A minister's son had just got his driving permit.
He asked his father if they could discuss the use of the car.
His father took him to his study and said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we'll talk about it."
About a month later the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss use of the car.
They again went to the father's study where his father said, "Son, I've been real proud of you. You have brought your grades up, you've studied your Bible diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut!"
The young man waited a moment and replied, "You know Dad, I've been thinking about that. You know, Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair...."
To which his father replied, "Yes, and they walked everywhere they went!"

Answer:
C. 14     Of the 27 books in the New Testament, 14 have been attributed to Paul; 7 of these are widely considered authentic and Paul’s own, while the authorship of the other 7 is disputed.

Pastor WalterCross Talk

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

any of you already know that effective July 1, 2019, I will be the pastor of St Mark UMC, in McAllen. This is a bittersweet bit of news. I have loved my three years here at Leakey UMC, and I am thankful for the ways that you have loved me and helped me grow as a pastor. We have been through a tremendous amount together, and I leave all the better because of our time together. At the same time, I am excited about the opportunities that await me at St Mark UMC. I go trusting in the working of the Holy Spirit and the grace of God.

In the coming days, the Hill Country District Superintendent will be in contact with the leadership of the church to discuss what you would like in your next pastor. I invite you to be in prayer for that conversation as well as the work of the cabinet as they meet.

As of this posting, we have about three months of ministry time left together. I look forward to finishing that out strong with you all. There is still much work to be done.

Blessings,
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.
