Good Afternoon everyone! Hope you are staying healthy and safe.

The Pastor had a few meetings these past few days to see what we can do for you. He wants to ensure that each of you know that we are here to help you when needed and we care about you. We have a few people in place to make this happen.

1.      Our first concern was those who needed prayer, please feel free to call Theresa Auld at (home) 232-5955, (cell) 512-426-2797 or email the church. I have picked up the church’s computer so I can respond faster.
2.      Then we thought about those who couldn’t leave to pick up prescriptions or groceries. Please send us your needs or call and we will try to respond to those needs. Also, if you are a person going to Uvalde, Kerrville or San Antonio and can help when a request is made, please let us know. See a Need – Meet a Need.
3.      Another thought was those who need well checkup calls just to make sure you are ok. We will be glad to do that as well.
4.      Then we thought about those who wanted to have communion. Right now, there is a basket in the foyer and sanitize gel. You are welcome to pick up a container(s) of juice and wafer for communion. The Pastor is working on a couple of other ideas to make this easier for people in our community. Maybe, a drive by during certain hours. He will let you know more.
5.      Don’t forget that HEB has curb service. Download the app, it could be very helpful. Sam’s will deliver most items to your front door.

Please keep in mind, your neighbors and friends that may not be part of our church. We would like to include those folks as well. This is not just a Methodist “thang” – it’s a community thang! If you want to help out, please let us know. If you need something, please let us know. Please forward this email to others in the community.

Contact Pastor Richard, Theresa, Pam or Helen. We will do our best to help serve you.

As I write this I can see out of my window in the study and I'm admiring our work from the Work Day. Thank you for contributing in so many different ways to maintaining and improving our property and our congregation. It's so impressive what we can do when we work together with set goals, one vision and some organization.

The church of Jesus Christ isn't a human organization, though. Leakey United Methodist Church is an organization, but it's also more than an organization. We are part of the universal church of Christ and are the visible part of Jesus for our community and each other.

Towards that end I'm introducing two spiritual disciplines for you take part in as the Spirit leads this month. First, I've mentioned a few times that reading through the Bible over the past 12 months has made a significant change for me in my view of God's work and purposes here on earth. So I thought I'd invite you to read along with me this year as I do it again.

Each week in the bulletin we'll be posting the readings for the week and you'll notice that we read 3-4 chapters from one book at a time with one "bonus" chapter mostly from the Psalms or the various books of Wisdom literature or the prophets.

Second is an opportunity to meditate on and memorize the scriptures together. Meditating on scripture is an internal spiritual discipline that opens our hearts and minds to the Spirit to renew us, His way. I'll pick one verse each week to focus on and we'll put it in the bulletin, in the newsletter and post on Face-book.

There are no tests and there should be no embarrassment with this exercise. Memorizing the scripture is just a very handy way to have the scripture ready in your mind for the Spirit to use for your benefit. He will use it to remind you of himself and to continue his conversation with you.

Take the scripture and read the context before and after it and try to put the verse in your mind one phrase at a time. If you do this daily, and especially if you do this a few times a day - maybe at mealtimes, for instance - you may be surprised at how much of the verse you retain and how much it begins to enter into your mind as you go through the week. Having scripture in your mind makes it so much easier for God to speak His words directly to you.

We had a lot of fun working together on our property this week and we accomplished quite a bit. We were focused on set goals with one vision and applied some organization to our effort. Can you imagine what the impact will be in our congregation and in our community if we approached these spiritual activities together?

Your curious pastor,
Richard Zander

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.
