Grape Wine in a Mason Jar

Many challenges come our way in the course of our lives, but we are not defeated when we exercise the power of God’s Holy Spirit that lives within every Christian.

Making the Most of Our Regrets

Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18 Regrets can be an instrument of God’s grace and learning that God’s presence never leaves us can bring us strength to empathize with others, forgive sooner, and live more fully. We all have regrets, both for the things we missed doing but should have done and those things we know we shouldn’t have done and now we have regrets for doing. Sometimes our actions have hurt others. “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing…

What Do You Labor For?

Our labor isn’t just the work we do to make a living when we dedicate everything we do to God’s glory. Brother Lawrence, a lay brother serving in the Discalced Carmelite Priory in Paris where he served in the kitchen and he said, “I forgot myself and was willing to lose himself for God.” Consider what motivates you in work, in service, in washing dishes.

Judicial Council Meeting

As I write this note, the United Methodist Judicial Council is meeting to review the work of the February Special General Conference. As their  decisions  are  made available, we’ll be arranging some opportunities to discuss the outcome and impact on Lakeview. I have seen some news reports that I believe are misleading and I want to ask you to be cautious and slow to react as you may hear misleading and even inaccurate information. One headline I saw reported, “United…

A Stephen Minister Story

A Stephen Minister Story Steve Feith, a retired naval officer married with two children and four grandchildren, loves to ride his motorcycle, smoke cigars, and play golf. He learned about Stephen Ministry at church, but thought it wasn’t for him. He just wasn’t into “emotional” stuff. Yet, as a naval officer, it had been his job to fix problems sailors brought to him. In training for Stephen Ministry, Steve, a fix-it person, learned that Christ, not himself, would fix people…

Stephen Ministry

The risen Christ told his followers to teach, heal and give hope to people wherever they  meet  them. As Christ’s disciples, we are directed to do likewise.  St. Paul  said  we  should  bear one another’s burdens.  These directives from the early Christian church shape and mold the ministry of offering care and comfort in today’s world just as they did so long ago. Stephen Ministry Stephen Ministry was begun in St. Louis, Missouri, in 1975, to ensure that lay ministers…

This Week’s Inspiration

A Passion for God

Psalm 79:1-9 By Harry C. Kiely The heartache of tragic loss is an experience common to most of us. A severe family crisis related to job loss, the sudden death of a loved one, the revelation of infidelity, a devastating flood­ these kinds of trials push us to the wall and make us cry out. In those circumstances, how shall we pray? Dare we come to God and bare our true feelings, even feelings that God has in some way…

Surpassingly, Overabounding!

Jeremiah 4:11-12, 22-28 By Rebekah Miles and Len Delony This week’s reading from Jeremiah describes the people of Judah as they await imminent destruction by an invading army. The prophet’s vision of the near future is grim. The coming destruction seems to undo the very act of creation itself – making the earth “waste and void” and robbing the heavens of their light. “The whole land shall be a desolation.” “The earth mourns.” The coming destruction signals God’s judgment on…

Being a Disciple

Psalm 139:1-6 By R. Charles Perry Most people are familiar with examinations. They take various forms: physical, mental-even spiritual. Many churches offer worshipers an opportunity during the Holy Communion service to examine themselves inwardly and spiritually. The psalmist reminds us of God’s examination of us: “Lord, you have examined me and you know me” (REB). The Lord knows where we go and what we say. The psalmist is aware of the omniscience of God, the infinite knowledge that God has…

Pearline’s Story

Pearline’s Story We have all heard stories from agencies about their good works but how often can we put a face that has been helped with a particular agency.  This is Pearline’s story.  Pearline is now 91 and a valued member of Lakeview United Methodist Church in Sun City, Arizona. Back in 1956, Pearline was a single mother with a boy (4) and a girl (5) and was living in Oakland, California.  She was offered a promotion but this position…
