A Word the Pastor (9-2-2014)

Blessings of Grace and Peace,

     Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us." Jesus answered: "Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? - John 14:8-9

     There is no wrong answer. If you have seen Jesus, you have seen the Father. Where have you seen the Father? George Strait, a popular Country artist sings a song titled "I saw God". The words of the song have inspired me to share the following. Have you ever needed a sign of hope? Have you ever needed a sign that God cares or is listening to you? When a loved one is so intensely ill that you have to take a break and in the midst of the concrete you find not a weed but a beautiful dandelion in full yellow splendor. "The Book" says He is here. "The Book" says he cares. But do I take the time to look? The sunset was so beautiful, the colors arrayed in all the hues of reds and yellows. "The Book" says He is here. "The Book" says he cares. But do I take the time to look? They described the noise like a train, it is true, it does sound like a train and after the tornado left leaving survivors thankful for their lives the thought became... "The Book" says He is here. "The Book" says he cares. But do I take the time to look?

     Imagine how the 1 out of 10 healed lepers who returned to praise Jesus would tell the story of his encounter. How would any of the other 9 tell their story? What went through the mind of the rich man who asked Jesus, "What must I do to be saved?" after Jesus responded with the impossible, what did he finally do or become? We can only guess, but "the Book" says he will never leave us nor forsake us; he will always be here.

     We have a bulletin board in the lobby of the Second Street entrance. One of the things we can do as a church is to collect our God stories to share with one another. As United Methodists we made the pledge in membership of offering prayers, presence, gifts, service and testimony. Sharing your God story is one way to talk about testimony. Think about the ways God has touched your life during the last week. From Sunday to Sunday take a moment each day to consider the times when you can think of God being so close to you and you so in the presence of the Holy One that you just could not help but notice. Once we get a few more cards on the board, I will make a slide for the church service to share your sightings. Take a moment, share where you saw God, I would love to hear your story. May you have eyes to see. - Grace and Peace, Keith

UMC Council of Bishops "Call to Action" Due to the decline in the United Methodist Church in North America, the Council of Bishops have declared a "Call to Action" to all United Methodist congregations. This 10 year plan, beginning 2012, will renew and change our denomination across the country by transforming dying congregations into vital ones.  The overall mission of the United Methodist Church is to "make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world."  Additionally information and resources can be found at www.memphis-umc.net (click "Call to Action") and also www.umvitalcongregations.org.
