Good Afternoon and hope all is well at your house!

Here is the diddy for the day!
A man was brought to Mercy Hospital, and went in for coronary surgery.
The operation went well, and as the groggy man regained consciousness, he was reassured by a Sister of Mercy waiting by his bed.
"Mr. Smith, you're going to be just fine," the nun said while patting his hand.
"We do have to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?"
"No, I'm not," the man whispered hoarsely.
"Can you pay in cash?"
"I'm afraid I can't, Sister." "Do you have any close relatives, then?"
"Just my sister in New Mexico," replied, "but she's a spinster nun."
"Nuns are not spinsters, Mr. Smith," the nun replied. "They are married to God."
"That's right..." the man said with a smile, "So bill my Brother-in-law."

Happy New Year, Church!

One word I'm thinking of at the beginning of this year, and this year in particular, is "constraints". Here's why.
It's a new year and a year that we tend to think of as beginning a new decade. That might sound particularly significant. But the number we assign to any particular year or name we give any decade is of far less importance than what we do with that year or sets of years.

Natural beginnings like the start of a new year or new month or new decade provide a natural opportunity for us to make a course correction to reset the desired destination for our lives. Well, where do we want to "go"? What do we want to see our family lives look like? What impact do we want our church to have in Leakey and Real County? What do we want our church body and our church space to look like in the next year and decade? What does it mean for me personally to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus the Christ this year?

To go somewhere we haven't been requires doing things we haven't done before. If we are happy with where we are right now, then we should continue to do the things we have done. But if we want something different for our lives and our church, we need to try doing some different things.

New activities are uncomfortable at first. They are unknown and full of uncertainty, so we often constrain ourselves to maintaining the status quo rather than trying the new. We find a comfort zone and live in it.
Exploring, however, provides an unparalleled opportunity for us to grow together as a church community. There's nothing like trying new experiences together with new people to create new bonds within a community.

God bids us "Go and make disciples". "Going" is, by definition, uncomfortable. It means removing the comfortable constraints we've opted to live within and experience newness. This year, let's commit to being uncomfortable. To removing those constraints from the Holy Spirit's guidance of our church. Let's commit ourselves to being open to the new this new year. To being God's body together in a new and unprecedented way in our community starting this year.

Your still new (& unprecedented) pastor, Pastor Richard January 2020

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.
