“The Birthright Shuffle”

Genesis 25:19-34

 

 

Dear Friends,

Our “birthrights” are those privileges, possessions and values that we inherit. Life without birthrights would be awful… as Esau found out in Genesis. When I think about contemporary stories of birthrights, I think of the late, great Tim Russert, who died unexpectedly in 2008.

Foundation 50th Save the Date

Every day, each one of us builds something. A family. A career. A reputation. A life. Built upon our hopes and dreams, reflecting our values and ideals, shaped by our words and deeds. A hundred years from now, will the things that mattered to us still matter? Will the causes that stirred our hearts still incite passion? Will the purposes we lived for live on in others? When all is said and done, what do we leave behind? Through First Methodist Church of Fort Worth Foundation, you can make certain your gifts not only benefit others today, but countless generations in the future. The Foundation can help you build a legacy of compassion, service and devotion. To learn more go to www.fmcfoundation.org.
