Good Afternoon and hope every one of you is safe and ok!

Just to let everyone know… Pastor Walter is ok. I have only spoken with him by text. His car hydroplaned and well he is in Boerne getting a new vehicle. But, he is OK!
Please pray for the victims of hurricane Michael.

Now for the diddy of the day!
Temples are free to enter but still empty. Pubs charge to enter, but are full. People ignore inner peace & choose to pay for self-destruction.
Don't put a question mark where God put a period.
Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Pastor WalterCross Talk

With all the rain recently, I have been thinking about the story of Noah. While our much-needed rain hasn’t hit those epic proportions, it has caused the river to rise and left many stuck on one side of the river or the other. I for one am thankful for the rain we have received, and the renewal of creation all around us. It reminds me of the promise at the end of the Noah story in Genesis 9.

8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him, 9 “As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark.[a] 11 I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” 12 God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: 13 I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”

Not only have we seen the beauty of creation coming back to fruitfulness after a long hot summer, but the skies have also been full of rainbows. Now we know scientifically, why we have rainbows in the sky, but isn’t it amazing to think that every time there is one, God remembers his promise to all of creation. No longer is God going to destroy all flesh with a great flood, but he promises to reconcile all of creation in the fullness of time. I hope that every time you see a rainbow in the sky you not only get a child like sense of wonder, but that you remember the grace of God and his promise to us all.

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.
