Tim BrusterSalvation is Light in the Darkness

Dr. Tim Bruster

John 1:1-14, 8:12

Dear Friends,

This Sunday, the fifth Sunday of Lent, we’ll continue our “Saving Grace” Lenten Sermon series with “Salvation is Light in the Darkness.”

The images of darkness and light, blindness and vision, figure prominently throughout scripture. Darkness can be ignorance.  It can be blindness to what’s going on around us. (Jesus says in Mark 8:17-18, “Are your hearts so resistant to what God is doing? Don’t you have eyes? Why can’t you see?”) It can mean being in the dark about who we really are and what our needs are (The book of Revelation addresses the lukewarm Christians of Laodicea, “you say, ‘I’m rich, and I’ve grown wealthy, and I don’t need a thing.’ You don’t realize that you are miserable, pathetic, poor, blind, and naked. My advice is that you buy gold from me that has been purified by fire so that you may be rich, and white clothing to wear so that your nakedness won’t be shamefully exposed, and ointment to put on your eyes so that you may see.”) Darkness can mean threat, fear, uncertainty, hopelessness: it is, to use Isaiah’s words, walking in darkness.

Light is the opposite of what the darkness represents. The imagery of going from darkness to light is about transformation. Darkness is scary and threatening and uncertain, but the hope in God is captured in Isaiah’s words: “The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light.” Salvation in this context, then, is light overcoming darkness, truth overcoming ignorance, goodness overcoming evil, caring overcoming apathy, and vision overcoming the failure to see.

John’s Gospel says that Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh and that everything came into being through the Word. The gospel writer says, “What came into being through the Word was life, and the life was the light for all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness doesn’t extinguish the light.” A few chapters later, Jesus says, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me won’t walk in darkness but will have the light of life.

In our worship, we’ll center our thoughts on these inspiring words from the gospel of John then listen to Choral Union sing a beautiful setting of these verses.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday as we explore all the ways in which the light of Christ can overcome the darkness in our own lives and what it means for how we live.

Grace and Peace,

Tim_Signature

Senior Pastor

staff_Roger Partridge_150Faith in Action: Our Easter Offering

Roger Partridge

You’ll be receiving a letter soon with information about this year’s Easter Offering. The Easter celebration of our risen Christ gives us the opportunity to share a gift with others less fortunate than ourselves. The gifts for this offering are not for church budgeted items and are considered second mile gifts. Beneficiaries include: First Street Methodist Mission, Methodist Justice Ministry, our international mission trips to Kenya and Costa Rica Ministry, Camperships for children to attend United Community Center’s summer camp, funding for a Lydia Patterson Institute student intern, and my topic from last week’s blog, the Women & Children’s Interim Housing at Presbyterian Night Shelter. Click here to continue reading.

Lisa HelmGet the Whole Story

Lisa Helm

Would you skip reading a book and just read the last page? When you buy tickets to a concert or a play, do you just show up for the end? Would you just go to the last fifteen minutes of a movie? If your answer is no, then I have to ask “Why would you just go to church on Easter Sunday instead of experiencing all of Holy Week?”

This is the question Rev. Linda McDermott asked a couple of years ago at a staff planning meeting for Lent and it has forever changed the way I look at Easter. Don’t get me wrong, celebrating the rise of Jesus from the dead on Easter Sunday and the forgiveness, rebirth, and God’s saving grace that it represents is pretty amazing and incredibly meaningful.

Len Delony1Transforming Darkness

Dr. Len Delony

Often when people contrast light and dark, it is thought of as two opposing camps, such as forces of good vs. forces of evil, our better angels vs. that fallen angel, Harry Potter vs. Voldemort. And sometimes it is very important to draw strong, distinct lines between what reflects God’s truth and shining light vs. what only seems to cruelly break down, deceive, and violate in darkness.

But too often when we draw sharp lines, we slip into reactive, dualistic thinking that ramps up more suspicion, fear, and rage, causing us to interpret everything we see through the “fight or flight,” primitive part of our brain. Click here to continue reading.

Larry GrubbCFI — Church Family Informant

Rev. Larry Grubb

This is such a rewarding ministry. Sometimes people are facing scary illnesses, sometimes they have had a family member or close friend pass away, sometimes there are confusion and memory issues, sometimes they are just lonely and feel forgotten. Often they just want an encouraging word, someone to listen to their stories, someone to hold their hand, have a scripture read or a prayer offered, to be able to know that they still matter.

You can become a part of this vital ministry — be a Church Family Informant!

If you become aware that one of our members moves from their home or a facility to a new and different place to call home, please call or email Rev. Phyllis Barren (pbarren@myfumc.org) at 817/339-5802, and let her know. Click here to continue reading.

Charme RobartsSalvation is Light But You Have to Learn to Walk in the Darkness

Charme Robarts

If you are a fan of the 1987 movie, The Princess Bride, you will remember the line spoken by Inigo Montoya to the comic criminal mastermind, Vizzini, “You keep using that word, I do not think it means what you think it means!” Vizzini was driving everyone crazy by always exclaiming “inconceivable!” even if what he claimed was “inconceivable” was plainly not only conceivable, but happening before his eyes.

We probably use a lot of words that might not mean what we think they mean. Even though Jesus said that people who follow him will never walk in darkness, does that really mean that we shouldn’t figure out how to walk in the dark? Click here to continue reading.

Staff_McDermott, Tom

Why Aren’t You More You? Let’s Get Saved!

Rev. Tom McDermott

Years ago, I participated in a substance abuse prevention conference in Washington, D.C. One of the speakers was a Jewish woman who’d wrestled with addiction for years. She shared her journey to recovery highlighting her struggles with self-esteem, religious shame, and running from her faith. But she also spoke of the surprising places of support and love from friends and strangers that continued to invite her back to herself, to see herself authentically, honestly. And then, in mid-sentence, as if she’d not heard her own words before, she added inquisitively, “My . . . True . . . Self.” She paused a moment, smiled as she raised an apologetic hand and choked back some tears before continuing. Click here to continue reading.

Saving Grace: Seven Facets of Salvation

Lent is a time of preparing ourselves for the coming of Easter. For the past few years, First United Methodist Church has focused on a particular theme intended to help our congregation center on a particular avenue for reflection and self-examination. This year’s theme is “Saving Grace,” a seven-week exploration of some of the many facets that compose our understanding of the concept of salvation. It is a fundamental component in the Christian faith, yet many have a limited way of understanding and experiencing it.

Each week, we will explore one facet of a way of understanding and experiencing salvation. We will do this in sermons, blog posts, prayer stations, lessons, and a weekly online devotional guide. The facets on which we will focus are: Salvation is 1) this-worldly, 2) being set free, 3) a banquet, 4) returning home, 5) light in the darkness, 6) being saved from sin, and 7) life. The series will conclude on Easter Sunday.


Holy Week 2016

Palm Sunday

Sunday, March 20
“Salvation is Being Saved from Sin”
9:30 & 11:00 am | Sanctuary | Dr. Tim Bruster

Our understanding of sin so often limits our experience of grace. What is the relationship between our understanding of salvation and our calling to (in the words of John Wesley) “go on to perfection in this life”? This service will include music from our children’s choir, Cornerstone Youth Choir, and Chorale Union.

Maundy Thursday Service

Thursday, March 24
7:00 pm | Sanctuary | Rev. Linda McDermott

This service of worship will move us through remembering the evening on which Jesus gathered with his disciples for their final meal together. We will begin with a beautiful service of worship in the Sanctuary, proceed to a beautiful and moving experiential service of Holy Communion in Wesley Hall, and conclude with an inspirational gathering in the Garden. Special music featuring soprano Rainelle Krause will complement this meaningful service.

Children’s Maundy Thursday Dinner & Service

Thursday, March 24
“What Does Maundy Mean?”
5:30 pm | Dinner | Room 350
6:15 pm | Worship | Leonard Memorial Chapel

In this unique Maundy Thursday service for children, kids will experience a foot washing ritual, receive Communion, and hear the Bible story as they walk with Jesus on his final night. Donations for dinner accepted but not required.

Good Friday Services

Friday, March 25
Noon | Chapel | Rev. Linda McDermott
7:00 pm | Sanctuary | A meditative service of word and music

At noon, the Chapel sets the tone for this beautiful and meditative time of worship. Hymns, prayers, and a brief meditation will guide us through experiencing this deeply moving day in the Christian year.

At 7:00 pm, renew your spirit as you prepare for the glory of Easter through this beautiful and moving Good Friday service in the Sanctuary. The elite Adoramus Choral Ensemble will present “Mary Speaks,” a service of Lenten Lessons and Choral Music including choral repertoire from jazz, spiritual, late romantic, and contemporary genres, featuring works by Gawthrop, Lauridsen, Nix, Pieper, and Dubois under the direction of Robert Stovall.

Children’s Good Friday Dinner & Service

Friday, March 25
“Why Do We Call It Good?”
5:30 pm | Dinner | Justin Building, Asbury Room
6:15 pm | Worship | Wesley Hall

In this very thoughtful Good Friday children’s service, we encourage families to experience together one of the most important, yet challenging, stories of our faith. Offering this story in child-appropriate ways, through scripture and shadow theatre, this service presents the story of Jesus’ final day. Children will receive prayer cords, and families will sing and pray together in this powerful yet peaceful evening service. Donations for dinner accepted but not required.

Easter Sunday

Sunday, March 27
“Salvation is Life”
8:00, 9:30, & 11:00 am | Sanctuary | Dr. Tim Bruster

On this glorious Sunday morning Dr. Bruster will culminate his”Saving Grace” sermon series with a perhaps different twist on our understanding of eternal life that begins now and extends beyond death. Just as Jesus breathed life into his disciples following resurrection, on this Easter Sunday we will be invited to experience new life breathed into us. Resurrection is about salvation right now, your present grand possibility of new life.

This will be an exuberant worship experience with special choral and instrumental presentations by Fifth Street Brass and Choral Union including “O Clap Your Hands” composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Rene Clausen’s “At the Name of Jesus,” and “Glory” composed by Rimsky-Korsakov and arranged by Terry Price.

Lent16_Acts of Grace_HSRandom Acts of Grace

This season of Lent, we invite you to participate in a project we’re calling “Random Acts of Grace,” sponsored by FUMCFW Compassion & Justice Ministries. Here’s how it works: Each day of Lent (February 10 – March 26), we will post a Random Act of Grace on Facebook and Twitter. (Be sure to “like” our page and “follow” us on Twitter so you’ll get these posts daily!) Our challenge to you (and please share with your friends!) is to look around and see if you can find an example of someone doing a Random Act of Grace, anywhere in the world. You may want to do some of these acts yourself, or you may be content to merely notice them in the world around us. Once you have located an example, either take a picture or short video with your phone, find an image that portrays it online, or simply describe it in your own words. All examples count! Post your examples to our Facebook or Twitter, or email them to us at communications@myfumc.org.

foot-washing-childrenFUMCFW Children’s Holy Week Services
Featured in United Methodist Communications News!

This past week a major story about a rising trend toward offering Children’s Holy Week services appeared in United Methodist Communications online news, and guess who was featured prominently, including a very sweet picture of our Holman family in the Maundy Thursday foot washing portion of this special service tuned especially to children?

“Not a lot of churches are doing Children’s Holy Week services, but a lot of them are exploring it,” says Mark Burrows, Director of Children’s Ministries. Last November when Mark presented his Holy Week Children’s Services model and especially the Good Friday Service to the National Children’s Ministries Forum in Little Rock Arkansas, he offered his scripts to every participant in attendance. Since then, he says that each and every one of them has requested a script for one or all of these services, and as word has spread, he still gets about one request a week from someone who has heard about his presentation and offer. “I am excited about this response,” he adds, “because I think it means that more people are realizing the importance of creating an environment where it’s safe for children and families to explore some of the more challenging parts of the Great Story.”

To view this story in the UMC News, click here. And be sure to high-five our Mister Mark next time you see him for putting FUMCFW Children’s Ministries in this national limelight!
