Jan 14, 2018 Can We See Our Own Sin?
There are so many good things happening this month at Verona UMC. We just started a Sunday morning confirmation class for our youth and a new Sunday evening Bible study for adults. Through January from 5 to 6 p.m. I've invited anyone who wished to come and discuss that day's sermon to meet with me in the sanctuary. And on January 27th Bishop Lewis will be with us from 8:30 am to 2 pm for discussions around a way forward for The United Methodist Church.
There is also, of course, the return to a more regular routine after an event-filled Advent and Christmas season. B.L.A.S.T. for our children began again on Sunday evening and choir practices are back to their regular schedule.
I hope and pray you'll take advantage of any of these classes and events that will help you in your walk with Christ!
I also hope you will continue to pray for our congregation and United Methodist churches throughout the world as we move toward a specially-called General Conference in February 2019 to determine God's will for The United Methodist in the future.
During the month of January we'll focus on the issues that The United Methodist denomination has been struggling with for decades and whether there is a clear road forward toward reconciliation and unity. This sermon series is as important and difficult as any I've ever preached - let's all be in prayer together as we hear God's Word and will. While the issue of homosexuality has taken center stage as the heart of our division, I believe there are other deeper issues that must be addressed, including biblical authority and the place of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Lord and Savior. I hope you'll come and listen and then join me throughout January on Sunday evenings from 5 to 6 p.m.. in the sanctuary for a time of questions and discussion.
In Christ's Grace and Peace, Pastor Bob
