Pastor WalterCross Talk

Can you believe how fast this last year went? I blinked and felt like I missed a lot, and yet this has been an incredible journey here at Leakey UMC. To say that we have been busy this last year, would be an understatement. We have said good bye to far too many of our brothers and sisters in Christ and yet have welcomed new families into the life of the church. We had an incredible time at VBS, Youth, and have seen the fruit of our love as we celebrated the Baptisms of several of our young disciples. We have overcome challenges, launched the second service, witnessed grace in action and the outpouring of love, and grown together as a congregation. We have done a lot!

We have every right to be proud of what we have accomplished this year. I hope that you have all had an opportunity to catch your breath this summer because things are about to pick back up. This month is looking to be busy as we offer blessings for our teachers on the 13th, our students on the 27th, and hold our first annual back-to-school picnic during our regular fourth Sunday potluck. Then in September, choir, Bible Studies, Youth, and new Sunday School classes will be kicking off. Then we have Charge Conference on October 29th. So, get ready for a wild ride.

During all of this, I will be putting together my exam packet for Ordination. Which means a lot of reading and writing over the next three months, followed by prepping for my final interviews with the Board of Ordained Ministry in February. My goal is that all of this work will be invisible to the congregation. However, there is a good chance you might see me a little stressed out. So I ask that you give me grace, and pray for us as we go through this last bit of the journey towards Ordination.

I am grateful for my time here at Leakey UMC, and I am excited for what the future has in store. Let’s go boldly into this new school year with enthusiasm for what God has in store for us.

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.
