The Music of Our Lips and Bodies

The Music of Our Lips and Bodies – a Gift to God

Hymn Sing Sunday – Psalm 96 1-4a, 11-13 Worship, including worship through music pleases God. The closer we get to the truth of God’s grace and salvation, the beauty of God is revealed and more worship will well up within you. It begins with a conscious act of will and sacrifice to serve God and in this sense, worship is a verb. Word, music, service, humility – all lead us closer to God and into more worship. Throughout the Bible…

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…

Financial Report for July/August 2019

Finance Report As you can see  from  the  Financial Report Summary below for May, our church went into a hole for May Year-to-Date by almost $8,500.  While this is a lot of money, the people of Lakeview are continuing to give generously but by a little less than what is needed.  The actual expenses for May Year-to-Date were $15,000 under budget, which is very helpful.  Summer seems to be a difficult time for giving but I believe the people of…

Christ in You, the Hope of Glory

Amos 8:1-12 by Robert Charles Leibold On New Year’s Eve dear friend s suddenly found themselves in a life-and-death crisis when their SUV went into an uncontrol­lable spin on black ice. With a full load of groceries and two chil­dren buckled in the rear seat, the SUV flipped over and slammed into a telephone pole, snapping it in  two     – a totally unexpected and frightening moment for this family of four. Sam, father of the two boys, was driving. He…

A New Standard

Luke 10:25-37 by Bill Lizor The religious leaders of Jesus’ day were famous for questioning and challenging Jesus and his ministry. In this story a scholar approaches Jesus wanting to know the way to eternal life. The scholar knows the intellectual answer, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.” The scholar could have left well enough alone at…

It’s Not About Us

Luke 10:1-11 by Carolyn M. Anderson Jesus selects workers to go where he intends to go. He has commissioned twelve and now commissions seventy more! Then as now, there is more to be done than there are workers to do it. And the sense of urgency is great. We live in a time of enormous opportunity. We pray because the need is enormous and the laborers are few. But in praying for more workers we then make ourselves available because…

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…

Friends

Friends A Friend is one, who “know us” – our guilt and our shame – Regardless of our many sins Friends love us just the same. Years ago, I wrote those lines trying to describe “Friends.” Tell me:  what is your version? – “Your wisdom, never ends.” “A Friend in need, is a friend, indeed” – as the old “saying” goes – Friendship is much more than that – as anybody knows. – We have all kinds, so many Friends…
