The Pastor’s Desk – July 2018

This month is our National Independence Day. For almost 250 years this grand experiment in individual liberty and the pursuit of personal happiness has been celebrated as Our American Story. It was here, in Pennsylvania, where our Founding Fathers placed pen to parchment, pledging their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to the Dream of a better tomorrow. At that moment, they were of one accord, of one mind and passion moving with unabatable determination towards the goal of a more perfect union.

The Pastor’s Desk – May 2018

As I attended the 2018 EMC General conference in April, I was reminded that as Christians we are members of God’s Household, a family with innumerable brothers and sisters. Some have gone to ahead of us in death, and some have yet even to know the beauty of a life lived fully in Christ, but all of us are one in the Holy Spirit. This is seen beautifully in the Connectional relationship of the Global Evangelical Methodist Church.
