Join Me in Prayer for the South Korea Losses PDF Print E-mail

Soul Food Monthly Newsletter Wisconsin Conference UMCI know you are joining me in prayer for the families and friends in my native country of South Korea as we mourn the loss of so many lives following the terrible ferry accident this past week. I know you share tears and grief over the terrible loss, and all our hearts are heavy with sadness.

In this Easter season as we celebrate God's love in Jesus Christ and the hope of Easter, we are reminded again of the power of love and life over death and loss. And when we gather for worship and prayer in the days ahead, remember those who are so deep in grief and sadness. We pray all those who are sad and overwhelmed with grief will find God's comfort, strength, and hope in the presence and support of others.

What Are We Searching For? PDF Print E-mail

Soul Food Monthly Newsletter Wisconsin Conference UMCOur Lenten journey is nearing an end for us this year, and once again we will be focused on Holy Week and Easter. What are you searching for this Easter?

If you ask some children, they may tell you, "colored eggs and chocolate!" But I think most of us are searching for things that are more lasting and permanent and satisfying. I believe that most of us are looking for relationships in which we can give of ourselves, and receive love and acceptance from others. Many are looking for ways to share their talents and blessings in ways that will make the world a better place. We are also looking to see the joy and delight in others who receive the blessings that we share gladly. And, sometimes we seek forgiveness from others and a new beginning; and, sometimes we seek those we need to forgive, offering a new start.

Join Me on a Lenten Journey PDF Print E-mail

Often the Christian season of Lent is described as a spiritual journey. The starting point for our journey is Ash Wednesday and the destination is the cross and the empty tomb. I invite you to join with me and our sisters and brothers in faith as we take our annual Lenten journey.

Along the way, we will share the experiences again of God's love expressed so completely in the life and witness of the Christ. We will hear first-hand the stories of the acts of God's love poured out for all people. We will experience again the redeeming love that reminds us that we, and all who we journey with in life, are seen by God as beautiful, precious, and worthy of love. We will learn again (or maybe for the first time for some) that God in Jesus Christ wants a loving relationship with us, which is only possible when we are in relationship with Jesus, our neighborhoods, and the strangers we meet along the way.
