Missionaries of Charity

2 Timothy 2:8-15 God is reaching out with a crazy notion of love and all he wants is for us to say “yes.” And then he asks that we share that love so others might know him. Mother Theresa received the Nobel Peace Prize 40 years ago this week. Her legacy lives on in continuing mission and ministry that she began in such humble ways. One of her key teaching is that we, too, are called to share in that…

The Center Piece ~ Holy Communion

Through the simple act of sharing bread and juice, we connect – commune with Christians around the world and across time. Often through the time of sharing we experience God’s presence because of the holiness, the quiet, the fellowship, or simply because God is there.

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…

Giving

“It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving.”

Financial Report for October 2019

Finance Report As  you  can  see  from  the Financial Report Summary below, our church went into a deeper hole for August Year-to-Date by a little over $36,000.  After consulting with Tami, the Comptroller, I have discovered two areas where we are coming up short.  While Lakeview people are doing a really great job of giving, we are currently running about $13,000 less than the church’s needs but the giving is still about $2,600 more than last year at this time,…

This Week’s Inspiration

rain

In God’s Own Time

Psalm 65 By James C. Van Der Walt Psalm 65 expresses thanks for rain, which in the dry climate of the Middle East is seen as a blessing from God. People pray for rain so they can irrigate their crops, so that the harvest will be abundant, so that the community can be fed, so that neighbors can enjoy a comfortable existence side-by-side with one another. It is easier to live peacefully when the community experiences abundance rather than scarcity.…

Hearts, Minds, Love

Psalm 119:97-104 By Sudarshana Devadhar Much earlier than Jeremiah’s prophecy, the psalmist’s words attest to his love for the law, the law called by many names. According to the translation in the New International Version, the laws are also called “commands,” “statutes,” “precepts,” and “word.” The psalmist clearly loves all of them. The psalmist offers several reasons for loving the law of God. One is because laws are sweet and powerful. In expressing the nature of its sweetness, the psalmist…

Abject Weakness and Unquenchable Power

Luke 17:11-19 By Brian W. Grant Jesus has set off on his journey to Jerusalem and Golgotha and stumbled upon the most stigmatized people of his time. In this borderland, where Jews and Samaritans live across invisible boundaries on the same streets, he meets ten lepers. Any of today’s healers would find it challenging to redeem the lives of a handful of undocumented HIV-positive immigrants with the wrong religion. It’s a daily dilemma to parcel out our finite healing power…
