Good Afternoon to All!

Thank you God for the Rain! We, so needed every drop. I laughed at a little boy the other day. He said, all this rain is going to ruin my tubing! I will be stuck in that cabin. Grumble Grumble! I looked at him and said do you hear any thunder? Do you see any lightening? He replied, no. Then what difference does it make? You are going to get wet anyway… go tubing! He said, yea – I didn’t think about it that way.

I asked him if he knew the meaning of baptism. He said, sure do! Sister got dunk a few Sunday’s ago. I said, that is wonderful! Then I told him to think of the rain this way…. When you are in the river…. Think about the meaning of being baptized and the drops of rain is God baptizing you from his home in heaven. He smiled at me and told me I was cool! I said, Thanks!

Cool is good. Rain is good. Children are good. God is good.

Pastor WalterCross Talk

It looks like this summer is going to be a hot one, and we can definitely use some rain! I have no doubt we are all praying for rain to pour down from the sky, and soak the earth, so what do we do when its seems that our prayers aren’t being answered? Do we stop praying? It’s easy to give up when things are tough, but we are called to persevere.

In the 12th chapter of the letter to the Roman’s, Paul writes about the marks of a true Christian:
“9 Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; 10 love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. 11 Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. 12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.”

We are called to persevere when things get tough, to turn our hearts, minds, and spirit to God. Sometimes our prayers aren’t answered right away, and sometimes God just says “no”, but we are called to pray without ceasing, to hold to hope, and do good.

Friends, this is a difficult time, there is so much hurt and brokenness in the world. We are called to respond with love and prayer, and to seek to do good in living out our 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.
