“Two thousand years, and still we wait.” Hope. Hope, this mysterious, often difficult to describe ‘thing’ is what gives us a reason to continue in life, whether just working through a difficult time, or seeking meaning in life. Christmas brings hope in the form of a baby, but it is really in the resurrection, the rebirth, and in our salvation, because of Christ, that we have tangible hope.

Jesus the King of Kings

Guest Pastor Derrick Johnson 1 Timothy 6:10-16 Strength in God’s Grace 10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little.” Edmund Burke Make your donation today!

Digging Our Own Wells

We try to dig our own salvation, earning it by doing good deeds and living a “good” life. Isaiah and Jesus both teach us that is impossible. Only God can provide lasting salvation, freedom, and a guilt-free life.

Finance Report for December 2019

Finance Report As you can see from the Financial Report Summary below, Lakeview UMC had some disappointing results in October, as the monthly income was a little over $11,000 below what the Church needed to operate for the month and this caused the Year-to-Date to slip further negative a little less than $45,600. Before anyone gets too excited about the negative numbers, let me break them down into some pieces that will help everyone understand where we are having difficulty…

Choose Your Rut Carefully

by Clayton ShanklandIn Isaiah 42:16 we read these words: “I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight.” A sign on a certain road in Australia reads, “Choose your rut well. You’ll be in it for the next twenty miles.” It’s a funny thing about ruts. They don’t have to be miles long. They can be months long – maybe even years long. And ruts don’t have to…

Financial Report for November 2019

Finance Report As you can see from the Financial Report Summary below, our church IS slightly better Year-to-Date by $2,000, since the deficit is now only a little over $34,000.  Good job everyone for moving in the other direction.  In fact, September was almost $2,000 positive for the month and that has not happened in quiet awhile.  After consulting with Tami, the Comptroller, the giving by Lakeview People should be at 75% of our budget since we are now 75%…

This Week’s Inspiration


Slow Down

Isaiah 35:3-10 By Lesley Powell Cooper I woke up crabby this morning. A restless night, troubled by worries about today’s responsibilities, has left me feeling grouchy. I turn on the Christmas lights and try to read today’s Advent meditation, but I worry about getting everything done. I have to set up tables at the nursing home for my handbell choir. The Christmas cards need to be mailed. Did I remember to pay the power bill? Tonight is the last rehearsal…
Isaiah 11 1

The Way and Practice of Peace

Isaiah 11:1-5 By Pamela D Couture Read this passage again aloud. Breathe in and out with each phrase. Pray its cadence. Then focus on the meaning of the words – the beauty of the royal image. Jesse’s royal lineage is remembered for its reach toward goodness; a new king will grow from its stock. This king will embody the most important virtues for leadership – wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and the fear of the Lord. His personal qualities will…

Places of Holy Mystery

Psalm 122:1-9 By Benoni Silva-Netto Many childhood memories fill the cloistered spaces of my consciousness with genuine joy and great thanksgiving. Growing up as a preacher’s kid, the ritual of early Sunday mornings included my father’s compelling voice saying, “It’s time to go to church.” For a long time I thought that my father got carried away in his religious practices. But in retrospect I realize that those invitations to “go to the house of the Lord” have directed my…

The Kitchen Table

The Kitchen Table The kitchen table is covered well to protect its top from harm, the family, friends and food around are happy, safe and warm. Mom creates the odors there that draw us from our coves, to harbor in that happy place where laughter comes in droves. My children come, my brothers too, as noises reach a crest, and Dad repeats a blessing known to all who love it best. My hands and arms caress each one and pass…
