What a friend we have in Jesus
By Joseph Scriven

What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
      Oh what peace we often forfeit
      Oh what needless pain we bear
      All because we do not carry
      Everything to God in prayer

Have we trials and temptations
Is there trouble anywhere
We should not become discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer
      Can we find a friend so faithful
      Who will all our sorrows share?
      Jesus knows our every weakness
      Take it to the Lord in prayer

Are we weak and heavy laden
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious saviour still our refuge
Take it to the Lord in prayer
      Do your friends despise, forsake you?
      Take it to the Lord in prayer
      In His arms He'll take and shield you
      You will find a solace there.

Do you need a friend today?

I find this such a comforting hymn. It's so powerful to me to be able to empty myself of my worries and my cares, giving them all to the Master. It's easy to get caught up in the worries of life isn't it? My plans and timetables all seem so important. I get wrapped up in their details and forget that true life is not found in chasing after concerns and the accomplishments we are surrounded by. Instead it's found in a relationship with the One who gives true comfort and meaning regardless of accomplishment. Accomplishment is good - and I feel good about myself when I reflect on my accomplishments. And terrible when I consider my failures and failings! When do I need a friend? When I'm faced with my failures - to comfort me. And when I'm faced with my accomplishments - to ground me. And when I'm faced with my fears - to empower me

Do you need the comfort of a friend who sticks closer than a brother, or the power of the Almighty in your life today? Take it to the Lord in prayer. His peace and his goodness and his strength is waiting for you. What a friend we have in Jesus!

Your 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.
