Today is UMW Ministry sharing Sunday. “I do not mean that there should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balance between your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. As it is written, “The one who had much did not have too much, and the one who had little did not have too little.” 2 Corinthians 8:13-15.

October 31st marks the 503rd anniversary of Martin Luther's nailing of his 95 theses to the Wittenberg door to "spark" the Reformation. The United Methodist Church roots are deep in the Anglican Tradition however the themes of the Reformation remain the great themes and principles of our own faith today. Today, we fix our attention on that love - Jesus' greatest commandment, loving God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength; and, you shall love your neighbor as yourself.

In Genesis 1:24-31, God saw everything that God had made and IT WAS GOOD! God birthed unique relationships between God and creation; heavenly beings and human beings; and humanity and nature. Today we thank God for the gifts of relationship extended to us and pray for the strength and grace to respond with love to all God's creation.

"...the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey...". This week's service is all about loving God with your whole heart, mind, strength, and soul, and loving one another as we love ourselves. Please light a candle for your worship service and prepare for communion. Whatever you choose for your "bread & cup" will be blessed by God.

Season of Creation - The universal nature of God's covenant with Noah reveals God's intent to include all creation. We do a lot of damage when we compete with nature for control of our shared earth rather than to love and work with our partners in creation.

We continue to fan the love for the Creator as we share the Bishop’s end of summer message.
