Jesus Transforms Lives

Fourth in the series: “Tales of the Sea”

Mark 5:1-20

Dr. Tim Bruster

Dear Friends,

This week’s tale by the sea is . . . well . . . a little bit creepy, to be honest. In a way it’s something akin to a horror movie.

Imagine that you are living in Gergesa, a little town on the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee. It’s 2:00 am and it’s dark, really dark, outside. There are no streetlights. You and your family and the animals that are part of your household have been in bed for several hours now.

And you hear it again.

It’s a sound you’ve heard for years. It begins as a low moan and builds to a wail — and then to a howl. And it’s coming from the cemetery. You know what it is, of course. Everyone knows about the strange, scary man who lives among the tombs. Read more.

Robert Stovall gives a quick preview of the music offering for this Sunday.

Nancy Fisher75Celebrating Janitors, Rocket Scientists and You

Nancy Fisher

One of my favorite anecdotes about President John F. Kennedy supposedly took place in 1962 when he visited the NASA Space Center. As he was touring the facility, he interrupted his tour to visit with one of the janitors. The President approached the man with a friendly hello followed by typical questions with the last one being, “What are you doing?” The janitor responded confidently, “Well, Mr. President, I’m helping put a man on the moon.” Read more.

kat-bair75Clearly Chaos: The Story of Joseph

Kat Bair

As we finish up the summer, and prep for the fall, I’ve been thinking a lot about order and chaos. I am, by nature, rather orderly. I like to do one thing at a time, I like check-lists with all the boxes checked and have no less than 3 calendars in my office. Read more.

Linda McDermott7516I’d Rather Die!!

Rev. Linda McDermott

What right do we have to tell God who God can find worthy of love and healing? Let God love, and all we have to do is love one another. Simple. Oh, how simplistic is that! Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? But the truth is, there are those who, for most of us, it seems impossible that God would love them so. Read more.

Lisa HelmA New Level of Hospitality

Lisa Helm

It’s no secret I am passionate about hospitality at FUMCFW. There is truly nothing I want more than for people to come back to our church because they felt comfortable and cared for here. Recently, I spent an evening at Hurley House, a purveyor of hospitality owned by Tim and Katherine Sasser, for dinner and an interactive presentation by Katherine on the art of hosting and engaging in the art of hospitality.
