Two “Top Ten” Lists for 2019
Part 2 – Top Ten Blogs of 2019
#10) “Fear” (February 21)
Writing before the Special General Conference on issues of sexuality in the United Methodist Church I shared a few words for those who were worried about the outcome and the future of our church. Although that conference is over and the future is slightly more in focus, my opinion hasn’t changed.
After our team returned from our latest trip to The Joy Center and Red Bird Mission in Kentucky, I explained a little about what happens there.
A few words on my first anniversary at Christ Church
My summary of our year written for our official Charge Conference report.
Here I share my contribution to a Protestant worship service at the World Scout Jamboree in the event that that others might it useful for future scouting events.
One of my friends asked this question online and I shared it here because I know others have asked the same question.
Regardless of its apparent necessity, I don’t think that dividing the United Methodist Church will end well for anyone any more than Solomon’s proposal to cut a baby in half.
I explained to my congregation, and to anyone who cares, that regardless of how our denomination may, or may not, divide, I have no plans to leave this local church.
While I doubt that anyone cares what I think, this is my proposal for how our denomination might stay together.
While I was at the World Scout Jamboree, I met a young couple who were so passionate about scouting that they were spending their honeymoon sleeping in separate tents and working as staff so that scouts from all over the world could have the experience of a lifetime. This post was read almost eight times more than #2 and ten times more frequently than #3 because it got picked up by both our Annual Conference and our denominational web pages.
While this is officially my least read blog of 2019 (and probably the shortest), it’s still has an important message and is one of my favorites.
