For the past several months, Iíve been deeply involved in the formation of the context for how and why we are in ministry as United Methodists in Wisconsin. Wherever I go, I seek to discover what God is doing in and through our congregations and Circuits to fulfill the biblical mandate to reach out to people with Godís love in Jesusí name. Since returning home to Wisconsin, I have been seeking to imagine Wisconsin anew!
What does that mean? It means seeking to see what God is placing before us as possibilities. It means learning what has changed and continues to change in the communities that make up Wisconsin. What new populations or people are living in our communities and how are we going to reach out to them in Godís love? How are we preparing ourselves to offer leadership in the United Methodist congregations in Wisconsin to reach out beyond ourselves and our buildings?
How are we as United Methodists going to prepare the soil of our lives and our faith communities so we are equipped to produce the Fruit of the Spirit?
He shall judge between the nations,
and shall arbitrate for many peoples; they shall beat their swords into ploughshares,
and their spears into pruning-hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
The situation on the Korean Peninsula is of increasing concern throughout the world. Many people greet me with words of compassion and spiritual communities across The United Methodist Church and around the world. They are all praying in light of the rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
Current threats and military activities in Korea inspire me to pray to God for peaceful resolution. It is a painful reality that North and South Korea have remained at war for over 60 years. No resolution has ever been achieved in the conflict and even greater tension and alarm exist today. Hundreds of thousands of families are divided by the demilitarized zone and experience the violation of the basic human right to live in peace as family. Military confrontation stirs up the culture of mistrust and hatred between people.
