Tim75Jesus Takes What We Offer and Multiplies It

Second in the series: “Tales of the Sea”

Matthew 14:13-21

Dr. Tim Bruster

Dear Friends,

This Sunday we continue our “Tales of the Sea” worship series with a story that is in all four Gospels. The story of the Loaves and Fishes, often called the Miracle of the Loaves and Fishes, or the Miracle of Multiplication, is a story of multiplication through generous sharing.

Jesus and the Disciples were in an isolated place by the Sea of Galilee. It was getting late. The crowds were getting restless — and hungry.

FEATURES

Chapel Communion17_SQTake a Deep Breath and Prayerful Pause

FUMCFW Chapel Communion offers up both an oasis in time and an anchor for listening deeply in each moment.

Holy Communion — or the Lord’s Supper — is a special time in the church as it is one of the two sacraments (or “means of grace”) that are celebrated in the United Methodist Church. In addition to the sacrament as a part of the various worship opportunities here, we also offer a simple, more contemplative full service of Holy Communion every Sunday in our beautiful Leonard Memorial Chapel.

Nancy Fisher

I was challenged recently to take a close look at the priorities of my life. It was suggested that my monthly spending could serve as a barometer – perusing my credit card statements, my bank statement, my monthly expenses excel spreadsheet – to get a reflection of what I valued. Read more.

Tom75He Called Her a WHAT!?

Rev. Tom McDermott

Marshall McCluhan, the famous Canadian educator, philosopher, and media critic, coined this phrase more than 50 years ago. He added, “We shape the tools that ultimately shape us.” He was speaking of our use (and perhaps abuse) of media in the 20th century. Read more.
