Good Afternoon and Praise God for the Rain!

As you might have heard… the Auld’s have a baby calf to raise. The little calf was named Orphan Annie, but our granddaughter said the name might hurt her feelings. So, Sophie and I renamed the calf Miss Anne. Miss Anne is not doing well. Her mom was dry and by the time David and his brothers found the little calf it was barely able to walk. His brother, picked up the calf and put her in the truck and now we have her in the front yard. We have been faithfully feeding Miss Anne milk, bought supplement pellets, electrolytes, and other medicine. I say she is a little better, but not near where she should be. We even call the vet for advice. We really don’t know what else to do…. Then I remembered…. You can’t always FIX things that are wrong… so I have asked for God to heal her and above all His Will be Done. I don’t feel so bad for Miss Anne, because I have turned Miss Anne over to God. We will do our part and He will do His Will.

Now, the diddy for the day!

Pastor WalterCross Talk

This month we celebrate the feast of Pentecost. Fifty days after the resurrection, while the disciples were gathered, in Jerusalem, they received the Holy Spirit. Acts reminds us, that as the disciples were gathered, the Spirit of God descended like tongues of fire and landed on each of them. After receiving the Spirit, the disciples went forth with boldness proclaiming the gospel which was the catalyst for revival and the spark that gave birth to the early church.

As we think about Pentecost, one of the hymns we often sing is Spirit of the Living God, number 393, in our own United Methodist Hymnal. The words to this traditional hymn ask for the Spirit of the living God to fall afresh on me and concludes with melt me, mold me, fill me, use me. Asking for our own transformation through the power of the Holy Spirit and to be put to service.

During our Easter season, we have focused a lot of our attention on our need to die to the old to be resurrected in Christ in order to have new life both individually and corporately. As we move into the season of Pentecost, let us pray to receive the Holy Spirit anew, to be as bold as the disciples were preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ who died for our sake and rose again, who gives life and gives it abundantly.

Friends, I know some of you have been praying for revival in our community. What we need is a revival in ourselves first. We need the fire of Pentecost in our hearts. We need to be open to receiving the gift of grace, and the power of the Holy Spirit that we may be transformed and equipped to go forth boldly in Christ's name to preach the Good news through our thoughts, words, and deeds. My prayer for each of you is that the Holy Spirit fall afresh on you and that you catch fire with a renewed passion for living out your faith!

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.
