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…

July / August Thank You’s

 I wish to thank everyone for the support shown me during my recent illness.  I am grateful for the prayers, cards, phone calls,      and the prayer shawl.  I am especially grateful for the homemade grapefruit juice when I was unable to eat.  I still have treatments to undergo but know all will be well because of the love continuing to be shown to me. Know you are all in my prayers.         May God continue to bless you…

Heifer Update for July 2019

Heifer International The “Buzz” is over, even though I can still hear it.  Lakeview and Friends donated 44 Gifts of Honey Bees.  Now we need to direct our prayers to the recipients of these honey bees, that they may produce product for their new owners.  Product and profits so they may feed their families, educate their children and live a new life out of hunger and poverty.  May God richly bless them all. Now,  the  new program,  “Gift Ark”, which…

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…

Pastor John’s View for July/August 2019

Tales from the Mountain When our son, Richard, was  in  Boy  Scouts,  his troop had several trips that were their ‘signature’ trips. One of them was the Rainbow Bridge hike. This one was for the older boys and those deemed in the best shape. If you don’t know, Rainbow Bridge is in Southern Utah along the shore of Lake Powell. It’s an amazing sandstone bridge, 234’ high, it truly looks like a rainbow frozen in stone. Today, just about anyone…

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…

It’s Not about Us

2 Kings 5:1-14 by Carolyn M. Anderson Just as it often is for us today, God’s instructions come to Naaman from a most unlikely source. He responds just as we sometimes do, allowing his pride to get the best of him and therefore not doing exactly what the young Israelite girl has said. Rather than following the guidance God is sending, Naaman decides to go to the authority figures, hoping to get what only God can give. Since the letter…
