As I write this article for the month, I can’t help but look out the window of my office at the beautiful rain that is falling. Most of us are celebrating this wonderful blessing; this is much needed. If you think about it, rain is pretty amazing. Just enough rain gives life; nourishing the plants, watering the animals, and filling our beautiful Frio River. However, too much rain can be a destructive force that can uproot trees and wash away homes. As with most things in nature, there is a need for balance.

The same can be said for our lives; there is a need for balance. What happens if we live to work, rather than work to live? Well, our lives become out of balance, and we are tired and stressed all the time. The same can be said if we allow anything in our lives to take up too much of our time, energy, and resources. Simply put, we can allow almost anything to become an idol: work, school, social media, the news, or money. What is it in our own lives that seems to demand all of our time and energy? What is it that we find ourselves bowing down to instead of what’s truly important?

Fall is an incredibly busy time of year, both at church and in the community. At church, we have a ton of programs running throughout the week and are preparing for our Church Conference. In our community seems like there is something different happening every week begging for our attention. We live in a world that never sleeps, and the temptation is there to be a part of everything happening. I know that pull, and the feeling of being stretched too thin both financially and physically. When we look to scripture, we see an invitation for balance. Christ invites us to come to him and find rest. We are called to be a Sabbath people, to take time to rest and rejuvenate in God’s loving embrace.

Friends, in the midst of our busyness, make time to rest and to seek God through prayer and scripture, to find peace and rest in the midst of the chaos of our lives, and most importantly to be receptive to God’s renewal and blessings that fall down like the very rain that nourishes the ground.

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.
