Revolution: Uprising of Love
Christianity was born of a revolution started by Jesus to bring hope and love to all the world. Methodism was  born from a revolution started by John Wesley to awaken within Christians a love inspired fervor to bring to the streets! It is time to start another Revolution!!
 
OUR WORLD NEEDS LOVE...OUR FAITH AWAKENS LOVE...OUR MISSION IS LOVE
 
Faith necessitates love to be activated in order for the faithful to be called God's people. Love is not to be a commodity we store up for ourselves but rather a nutrient that nourishes all of creation.
 
Starting September 10th, we are going to bring a revolution within our church so we can bring an uprising of love in our community. How are we going to do this?
We are going to use the UMC Social Principles to guide our awareness, conversations and action.
September 10   Starting a Revolution: Wesley's hopes of revitalization
September 17   The Natural World
September 24   The Nurturing Community
October 1          The Social Community
October 8          The Economic Community
October 15        The Political Community
October 22        The World Community
Let's have the courage to deal with the tough questions of faith and society so we can create an uprising of love that leads to a revolution!
 
Blessings,
Pastor Carol
