Trivia: Which Presidential Couple Has Been Married the Longest?

"All right, let's try to win you a prize here. We're looking for the presidential couple that's been married the longest. Who do you think it is? Jimmy and Rosalind Carter. Yeah, Laura, that's right, Laura. You're the winner. By the way, today is the 76th wedding anniversary of Jimmy and Rosalind Carter they were married on this day back in 1946. Can you imagine that Laura? Wow, no, my husband and I will be celebrating 40 years in about three weeks. We thought that was a long time. Well, congratulations. You know, it's interesting. The carters, after the first date, Jimmy Carter went home and told his mother, you remember miss Lillian, told her that Rosalind Carter was going to be the girl he married, and then they were married on July 7th, 1946 at the Methodist Church, their implants, and then became Baptists later on, but there you go. They saved the secret is to marry the right person while I guess yeah, that's really no secret.

Bart Herbison Tells Us About the Nashville Songwriters Association

"When I talk about the Nashville songwriter association, they asked, well, what is that? So let's start off here, but just won't tell a little bit about how you got into this and also about the national songwriters as well. Well, me first a little hoity toity. My father was a painter in Paris. A house painter in Paris Tennessee. And look, we grew up in a rural area, somewhat poor, and music was the thing. Music, my grandma played piano in our little Methodist Church, and everybody was musical in my family. Three brothers played Trump at I blew mine, the other two played theirs. And I guess it's 16 years old. I got a job as a dish jockey at the local radio station, which was an NBC affiliate, and ended up doing some work on a national show they had. But a guy that grew up with me became a very famous songwriter named Jimmy Stewart, he wrote brotherly love, the last number one for Keith. Whitley, a little less talk for Toby, and I just was always drawn to that. I always drawn to they just make this up out of thin air and I said as a child some day somehow I'll work with American songwriters, and I did. For us, the origin story, I don't sing, but remember please release me let me go. The waste our lives would be a sin, release me and let me love again. That was written by Eddie Miller. Yeah, singing was not part of that too at bar. It takes a while to pass the bill. And he was a real southern gentleman, and he thought we can orgas the songwriters. There were only 80 songwriters total 80 in the entire town of Nashville in 1967. And he reached out to all of them and a lot didn't want to risk their career because even our friends within the music industry didn't necessarily want to see the songwriters quote unquote organize. But Eddie got married John wilkin Chris Christopherson fully and boulevard Bryant Liz and Casey Anderson, a bunch of really important songwriters and 42 risk their careers to become an advocate advocacy group for American

"Word. Jesus sat down opposite the treasury and watch the crowd putting money into the treasury. Many rich people put in large sums. A poor widow came and put in two small copper coins which are worth a penny then. He called his disciples and said to them. Truly i tell you this. Poor widow has put in more than those who are contributing to the treasury for all of them have contributed out of their abundance. But she out of her. Poverty has put in everything. She had all she had to live on. Very few people have the opportunity to be part of starting a new congregation. Being a charter. Member of a church is a rare blessing. A rare challenge as many churches. As i've been a part of over the years i've never done it myself. Christ united astounded forty. Eight years ago. And i've had the chance to talk with some of the families who are part of founding this congregation as well as the charter members of the first church i served arapahoe united methodist church. Just down the road in richardson. That was founded a few years before christ united. And it's fascinating. Talking charter members of congregations. They tend to speak with rightfully so with tremendous pride and gratitude about their experience. And what you hear when you talk with. Founding members of a church is that it requires an extremely high level of commitment by all those involved in those early building years. There's a clear connection between the stewardship of money time and talents and the ultimate success of the church and it's not just the case with planting a new church. It's the same with major building projects like when we moved to this campus twenty five years ago which which i know. Many of you helped accomplish and then when we built this sanctuary ten years ago along with the north side of the campus. Which even more of you participated in the chance to be part of building. Something new is both incredibly demanding. An incredibly rewarding. It can be very stressful. It's also very energizing for those who are blessed to be part of that and it requires just a tremendous amount of commitment by the community of faith to make it work as jesus sat teaching in the temple just days before his earthly ministry came to an end. I think it's telling that he took the opportunity to teach about financial stewardship..

"All of this is due to the appeal of the gospel. In every human context through the power of the holy spirit as the message of christ is carried throughout the world. There's tremendous beauty and power unearned diversity as global movement on world communion sunday in particular. We have the chance to celebrate the diversity of our movement. so why is it. Important to celebrate our diversity. There's a lot there so there's a lot of ways we can take that part of the conversation. But i would say one way that it's important to remember the diversity of the church i think is to keep ourselves from being self centered Frankly you know. We're as americans. We're used to be in the center. Power economic power military power in the world certainly in this generation and really for most of the twentieth century. And so it's easy to think that the world revolves around us but we're the story christianity. Were kind of latecomers to it. So it's good to remember that we are part of a whole that we're as part of a palm has the great metaphor the body of christ and every every part has its role to play in that kind of thing. Which was paul's way of saying that. No one part of the church is more important than any other no matter what your role as a matter who you are and so i think that's important. It also helps us be more sensitive to the needs of the rest of the world and when it comes to mission on national activity it keeps us. It helps us. Remember the the kind of like missions. I'm i'm using there as a like mercy ministries kind of term and then there's the mission of the church which is to preach the gospel everywhere and so i think that is important and i mean obviously i mentioned in the sermon that we preach about sixty percent of the time and then about forty percent of the time. We're doing other things that are made more particularly focused on our context and our our needs here which is a really important at least one sunday of the year. It's good to remember that. We're as part of the whole. Yeah yeah. I think it's important to celebrate. I think people will think okay either diverse or reunited. And i'm like well you could can be both a learning to live and celebrate your differences and also kind of ended today which world communication lifted up. Okay what's our foundational thing that we are that brings us altogether. So yeah every methodist church. I've been in has solberg work. Means there are actually well. I think the disciplines been updated. I think six special sundays with offering in the united methodist church. Very few methodists could name all six. In fact i'm sure i could name all six up top my head. The one that everybody recognizes overstated the one that the most number of churches recognized i think would-be world communion sunday. And when you do this. Special offering for communion sunday that's for global students It's like seminary students from other countries which is interesting because as as part of our connection Breezy flavor but not very many churches do special even if they they recognize special sunday very few. Do this special offer. Was i supposed to say that often because sure we haven't we haven't done that here. Well it's not just did not been our practice. Here is not been our practice here on this particular sunday anywhere. I've ever been..

"I want to start today by telling you about one of the most rewarding things that i've done in ministry to this point. It was at the church that we served just before we moved here to christ united which was first united methodist church of sherman. Texas just up the up seventy five the night. My wife whitney and i were introduced to the pastor parish relations committee which was several months before we moved to sherman. Several key leaders of the congregation asked us about the possibility of offering modern worship. Now we've offered modern worship here for gosh going on twenty years but as of two thousand thirteen sherman did not for sherman has a beautiful sanctuary. A beautiful chapel. Both of which are perfect for wonderfully traditional worship but church leaders understood that we were not reaching people who needed our methodist theology but who did not connect through traditional worship and so shortly after we got there we put together a task force that met over the course of more than a year researching and praying and discussing and debating and discerning and then ultimately planning we came to believe that the holy spirit was leading us to start a modern worshiping community off campus. And we actually found a vacant building just a couple of blocks from the church. That seemed perfect. It had been Half medical supplies store and half oil change shop now. Admittedly seem like an unlikely place for a church. The medical supply half smelled like cat litter for reasons. I didn't fully understand. The garage was a garage with oil change pans and the whole nine but i got really excited about the possibilities that it presented had florida ceiling windows that looked out over the steeple of the church which was again just a couple of blocks away. We were there and i took pictures and i texted them to my wife whitney. And she responded. I think you've lost your mind but we entered into a wonderful partnership with the owner who thoroughly renovated it for our use. We raised some money for the furnishings. And on alder. It's not a great picture. I know but it kind of gives you a sense of the worship space on aldgate day which is may twenty fourth twenty fourteen. We launched what we called mosaic. From that point on every sunday morning i would preach in the chapel. At eight thirty. I would walk across the street to mosaic to preach at nine forty five and then walked back to the sanctuary to preach at eleven. And whitney and i absolutely loved it. She and i had the chance to worship together. Every sunday. the stage was small. And so i'd sat next to her which doesn't happen very often and mosaic became a thriving community with some long term members who just preferred modern worship as well as lots of folks who never would have darkened the doors of our very traditional main campus. It grew into an eclectic community of disciples from diverse theological backgrounds in some cases. No theological background from just about every stage and walk of life. Our informal theme song at mosaic was a song called. Come as you are. Now my gen-x friends probably hear that title and immediately think of this band gen-x thank you. I know somebody all do down. That's obviously not the song that i mean. That's a great song to anthem for my generation. But i'm actually talking about the modern worship song by this guy this guy. Yes david crowder. It's a it's a powerful moving worship song begins with these words. Come out of sadness from wherever. You've been come brokenhearted. Let rescue begin. Come as you are became the informal theme song of mosaic. Because it's a beautiful summary of christ's invitation to the world no matter who you are no matter what you've done or not done no matter where your spiritual journey has taken you to this point. You are welcome here in household and of course the kingdom of god. And if you've heard that song you know how powerful the chorus is so lay down your burdens. Lay down your shame. All who are broken. Lift up your face a wander. Come home you're not too far so late on your hurt laid out of your heart. Come as you are the good news. The gospel of jesus christ begins with that simple but life-changing affirmation and as the body of christ in the world every congregation of christ. Church is called to extend that same invitation. We know this. The invitation is for everyone because we believe that it is in the fellowship of the community of faith that we find our spiritual home so this is the fourth and find a week of our sermon series. Why church we've been exploring throughout the month of september the question of just why it is we believe that everyone needs and i would actually go for further and argue that everyone deserves a family of faith to call home back in week one. We talked about the power of prayer when we pray together as a community of faith that prayer has the power to comfort us inform us and challenge us and change us. Then we too. We talked about how we grow in our faith together which often happens in sunday school bible studies and small groups in week three. We talked about how we serve others. Which has the power to transform ourselves our community and our world and all of sermons on the website. If you missed any of them like to get caught up now i also mentioned in the announcements that this is the eight. The final of our eight week back to school season throughout august and september we've been highlighting a different ministry of our car gatien. Each week we're wrapping it up with today is an emphasis on the connection on the community on the fellowship that we find here hence the big fair after the eleven o'clock service and we're reading today from luke's gospel. What you need to know. Before i read is that this is a passage in which jesus is having dinner at the house of a leader of the pharisees. So i'm gonna read about half the passage. I will come back and read the rest later. Wasn't friends with the word of god is and is proclaimed by god's servant the evangelist luke when jesus noticed how the guests chose the places of honor. He told the parable when you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet do not sit down at the place of honor in case someone more distinguished than you has been invited by your host and the host. Who invited you both of you may come and say you give this person your place and then in disgrace you would start to take the lowest place but when you are invited go and sit down at the lowest place so that when your host comes he may say to you friend move up higher than you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you for all who exalt themselves will be humbled and those who humble themselves will be exalted. He said also to the one who had invited him. When you give a luncheon or dinner do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors. In case they may invite you in return and you would be repaid but when you give a banquet and bite the poor the cripple the lame and the blind and you will be blessed because they cannot repay you for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous says. The word gone for the people who have gone. Thanks be to god. Our passage today includes two different parables. The first of which we just read the other..

"I invite you to join me in prayer this morning. God made the words of my mouth and the meditations of each of hearts be pleasing to you our rock and our redeemer ahmen i. I stepped onto the campus of christ united. In the summer of twenty fourteen. I had just graduated seminary and i was looking for a full-time church position as i began the ordination process in the united methodist church now typically methodist pastors. Don't submit resumes and go looking for jobs. But i wasn't ordained yet. I wasn't even commissioned. And i had just completed six consecutive years of doing that whole higher education thing. I felt a deep call to ministry. I had the diploma to prove it. And i also really needed some financial security in my life when i drove onto this campus for my interview. I remember noticing a house being built on the north parking lot. And i remember that every person i met kept talking about how important serving was to this congregation. I was sold. Luckily the staff who interviewed me reciprocated. The feeling that. I was called to be here in this community with all of you this morning. We continue our sermon series called. Why church chris. And i have preached the past few weeks on why we believe being a part of the local church is important to our faith development and how we go about being christians in the world. We've covered prayer and discipleship so far. I've especially enjoyed this particular series. Because with each sermon we get to highlight one of our awesome ministries here at christ united when we preached about prayer. We highlighted our care ministry program last week when we talked about discipleship. Of course we talked about the adult ministries program. This morning we get to cover one of the most foundational pieces of christ united serving and are serving others ministry. serving others. ministry is already the beating hearts of our community and today we get to gather together and talk about why service is such an instrumental part of our faith and of this community and before we get too far into talking about service. Let's address the fact that you can be a great person and volunteer and serve the world and not belong to a local church. You can actually be a great person and serve the world and not even really be a part of any type of faith but for us. Our faith is often the what the why the how we go about. Demonstrating our faith in the world as christians when we serve. We're sharing the love of christ with others. Service is innate to the whole church thing the universal church and this church it something we prioritize. And it's something we deliver on time and time again.

"From AOL. The leader of the far right Proud Boys pleaded guilty money to burning a black lives matter. Banner. Taken from a historic black church during a demonstration in December. In league Theriot 37 in Miami. I understand He's a Cuban Americano, Mr Producer. Hardly white. I allowed to say that I think I will. It was arrested on January three in Washington on a warrant stemming from a December 12 incident. The proud boys and other groups marched in a raucous pro trump rally through downtown Washington. The banner was stolen from the Asbury United Methodist Church, one of the oldest black churches in the area. On top of the destruction of property charge. He also pleaded guilty to attempting to possess a high capacity gun magazine which is illegal in the city. Alright, let's stop. He burned a black lives matter. Flag, Mr Producer. Have you ever heard of anybody being charged with burning a flag? Private property or no private property. Did we see entire blocks burned during the riots of this past summer? People had their hats pulled off their heads. People have their cars damaged people, all kinds of stuff. Does it not strike anybody as weird? And beyond weird. That this guy is charged with burning a black lives matter. Banner.

"So wanted to begin this morning by telling you a story that happened in january of twenty fifteen. I was going up for my really big interview as part of methodists ordination pin q. Interview preparations qualifications. And to get to this point you've gone through a series of other interviews and meetings and you've written a lot of paper work you've written about thirty to thirty five pages answering theological questions. You've submitted a couple sermons for them to review used to mit a bible study. You have references. You submit transcripts. You're right to call story. There's a lot that comes to this point and then on top of that to complete your work you have to send it to other clergy to look over so they can give edits and suggestions and whatnot and then if you really want to prepare for your interview you have a series of mock interviews and you try to get other clergy and maybe some lay people to help test run questioned by guess and so you get to this point. And it's very very nerve wracking and other interviews take place usually at pro throw up in pots. Borough texas where the methodist church has a camp and there are three different rooms at the board of ordained ministry or they're into three different rooms and there's about ten to fifteen people in each room mix of clergy and delay and they've rhetoric paperwork. They've reviewed your sermons. They've read and watched everything. And there's usually three candidates that go at the same time so you rotate through the three different rooms and you've spent about twenty to thirty minutes in each room and then after you're done you go back to the main lodge you and the other two candidates and you sit and you wait and you wait as they discuss and deliberate if you are going to pass. I remember there sitting there with one candidate and the other candidate was actually my husband. Scott who is actually going up for his interview as well and through the glass doors. I could see a few of the board members coming and they take my husband scott and other candidate it one direction and then i follow people. Take a hard left. Go to this different room. And i know that if you go to that room means i didn't pass more on that a little bit. The story of david and goliath is one. I can say is probably pretty. Well known. we've all read it move slightly at one time or another or no the gist of it. I mean the term goliath has become a pop culture. Referencing of this person is my goliath of this. Project is my goliath more. We know the story right. It's a little shepherd. Boy that defeats this giant. Huge warrior named goliath with a slingshot right. That's what we know probably didn't look like this even not even a little bit actually but we love it because right yeah the little guy takes down the big warrior but as i was going through this story again preparing for this message there was something else that i got out of it and a lot of people have kind of gone into the story. Malcolm glad will. The author has a book on david and goliath and he talks about how goliath maybe wasn't that big and scary. I encourage you to read that or watch this ted talk. There's a lot in there. But i was struck by something else. And this story we're gonna be looking at. I samuel chapter seventeen and we're going to be jumping around a little bit there. Some versus in your bulletin bribe. I cut them down because my first run through the sermon was thirty minutes long. I thought oh. I should probably cut a little bit. So we're going to start in verse four and we'll just follow along so i samuel seventeen starting in verse sport there. It came out from the camp filthy filthy champion named goliath of gap whose height six cubits span. He had a helmet of bronze on his head and he was armed with a coat of mail. The weight of his coach was five. Thousand shekels lebron's he agrees lebron's on his legs. A- javelin bronze son between his shoulders neck shaft of his spiritual like a weaver's being and his spears headway six hundred shekels of iron and his shield bearer went before him so pretty good introduction of goliath. We get a picture of probably what looked like now skipped down to verse twelve now. David was the son of the effort. Site of bethlehem and jenin. Name jesse who had eight sons and the days of solve. The man was already old and advanced in years so not a lot about david then talks about his brother's a little bit for seventeen. We find out that. David david didn't come to fight glide. He actually came to bring ten loaves and cheese. So david invented ditch occurred or you board apparently right here and i see y'all also very exciting and then goliath and that joke also did not work at eight forty five. But i tried it again. So we're going to try it again at eleven. So we go on in goliath is shouting and smacktalk. And then there's you know back and forth like who's gonna find me. He's been there for forty days waiting for someone to be bold enough to fight him and then let's see and then david like well. I mean all give it a shot so then this is where we're going to jump back in store verse thirty four. So this is david. Tell him saul why he should be able to do it. But david said the sawyer. Servant used to keep sheep for his father and whenever a lion or bear came and took a lamb from the flock. I went after struck. It down rescuing the land from its mouth and turn it gets me. I would catch it by the jaw. Strike it down and kill it. Your servant has killed both lions bears and this uncircumcised philistine shelby. Like one of them since he has defied the armies of the living. God david said the lord who saved me from the paul of the line from the pov. The bear will save me from the hand of this vilson so solve set. David go and may the lord be with you. David clothed david with his armor. You put a bronze helmet on his head.

"Sometimes it's one to turn to at all times to be sure but never more so men in bad times in challenging times in times of unexpected change and stress and has paul makes clear throughout the entire letter to the philippians his point is that both our faith in christ and the fellowship of the church. It's both give us the resilience to bounce back for whatever life throws at us and god knows thrown lot at us over the past sixteen months. Think back to all that we've endured as a community of faith. We have uplifted one another. We've gotten through this thing together. Christ has seen us through it as christ always does. Because that's kind of christ's thing and today especially we celebrate. How through your membership. Douse the membership bows that we all take when we joined a congregation to support and uphold this foundation of the united methodist church with our prayers are presents gifts our service and our witness. Those vows have enabled these young people to grow in their music to grow in their faith to grow in their fellowship which has been. That's never a small thing. It's a specially not a small over the past year morning right early on our behalf on your behalf. They're leaving on tour to bear witness to the love of christ which is the love that they have learned here at christ. United and. Brian mentioned some of the details that they're going to be singing edit nursing home in little rock. They're gonna be singing. A senior living center and memphis for folks who themselves are trying to bounce back from extended isolation during the pandemic. they're going to be singing at the union mission. Women shelter and memphis for women in their children who have survived domestic abuse. Who absolutely need the resilience. That christ offers us. That'd be singing the national anthem at a minor league baseball game at the home of the memphis redbirds. I'm assuming we're gonna do that for the rough riders at some point to okay all right rangers even better. Yes that is even better. Yes love that and they're going to be participating in choral clinic at the university of memphis and all along the way for the first time in two years. They're going to be taking their faith on the road sharing the love of christ through their passion for music. And they're able to do that. Paul would say because of their faith in christ and their friendships with each other. And i would add because of the love and support of their church family all the which has given them the resilience to do what they love and to bless others in the doing man i was going to say there's not a whole lot that i believe more than that's true more than the fact truth. Theological truth that. Paul tells us that we can do all things through him. Who strengthens us. And as paul makes clear that strength is best lived out in the context of a community of believers. I i don't know about you..

"So children's time is going to resume in august but if don's video was an indication of his creative potential. I think we should have gone to a video once. we do. Awesome if you if you were not in the sanctuary option. We'll put it on my. It was really funny. I believe that we've been at that at t's okay. As i mentioned this is the second week of our little mini series on one of my favorite scriptures which is paul's letter to the philippians. All four of the chapters of this brief letter are terrific. They're extremely quotable. If you've never sat down and read the entire letter slash book at one sitting. i've highly recommended. It and i mentioned last sunday that there are a bunch of verses from philippians that have been and remain important in my own spiritual journey. There are actually two in last week's passage from the first chapter. Even though i only focused on one of them in the very opening verses of philippians paul writes i am confident of this that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of jesus christ. I love that sense of optimism. That sense of hope. That's not always the way. Paul shows up in his letters and so for him to open a letter. Like that is awesome. But that's actually not the verse that i focused on last week. We spent a little bit more time with a phrase from the twenty seventh verse. Live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of christ ever talked about last last week we talked about what that looks like responding to god's graced by loving others especially within the context of the community of day now the second chapter of philippians which actually skipping today is also chock full of awesome stuff it opens with a very famous passage called the christ him. The christ hymn is such an important piece of scripture in our north texas annual conference. Everyone who is seeking to be ordained as a deacon or elder in the united methodist church is required to preach a sermon on it record it and submit it for evaluation before they can enter residency because pulse. The allergy in these verses is just central to our approach to the christian life. That's a passage that talks about having the mind of christ which is a mind of humility of selflessness and then right after those awesome verses that that section called the christ another famous crucially important verse. One that's another one of my favorites work out your own. Salvation with fear and trembling for it is god. Who is it working you enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure. Paul is encouraging us in that verse or those to actually to think through our faith and make it our own and he's promising that god is with us in that intellectual and spiritual journey. I mean that's awesome and that's like in. I don't know about thirty some odd verses. There's so much terrific theology. The runs the entire letter to the philippians. Well today. we're turning our attention to the second half of philippians. We're going to focus on just a few verses from the third and fourth chapters and the inspiration for this sermon. The inspiration for me in choosing these verses actually comes from our christ united youth choir latter music at the.

"Deeds of power there because of their belief says the word of god for the people of god. Thanks be gone. We know absolutely nothing about jesus childhood. We have only one story from his early teenage years. But other than that we have no details about. What kind of kid he was. What kind of mischief he got into. What do you like to do for fun that sort of thing. But we're talking about. Jesus now so i imagine he was a pretty good kid. I imagine he was not one to skip class or beat up on his brothers or back talk his parents or other adults. I'm sure you're with me on this and yet even jesus has the experience that's common to many of. Sometimes it's hard to do serious things as a grownup in your hometown because everyone still thinks of you as a little kid and if you were a wild kid or a misbehaving kid or a kid who struggled in school. It's just hard to live that down among all the folks who knew you when you were growing up our family served. First united methodist church of henrietta texas for three years. Henrietta is a town of three thousand about twenty miles. Outside of wichita falls in the first year we were there. A gatien member recommended that we go see a play called tuna christmas at the theater in wichita falls and so a group of us from the church got together and we went. This is a comedy about the joys and perils of growing up and living in a small town and as they told me. It's pretty accurate. One the storylines is about how in a small town like tuna texas. No matter how old you are there are some things about your past that people never ever ever forget about you because part of the joy of living in a small town is that you have history with everybody else you know that counts for something that that matters but the challenge of having history with everybody else is that people tend to remember your childhood quirks and your shortcomings and your mistakes forever and our text. This morning tells us that. Even jesus himself has to deal with this. He's teaching in the synagogue as a grown man and people are really impressed with what he has to say but then they realize wait a minute..

"Of them they all filled with the holy spirit and began to speak in other languages as the spirit enabled them to speak. There were pious jews from every nation under heaven living in jerusalem when they heard this sounds a crowd gathered. they were mystified because everyone heard them. Speaking in their native languages they were surprised and amazed saying look arts all the people who were speaking galilea liens every one of them. How then can each of us hear them. Speaking in our native languages it goes on to name all of their languages. So i may be taken an easy way out by not having read all of the cultures. They are from and the typical move win reading. The pentecost story is to focus on the unity of all of these first believers coming together and being compelled by the holy spirit to understand one another and all of that is true of this scripture. It's all imperative to this story and yet they're still something more to pentecost. The holy spirit helps. The disciples. Share this message of christ a message of christ ministry of christ a legacy of christ salvation. That is offered to each of us. But let's look closer at who the audiences that the disciples are speaking to that fifth. Verse gives us some insights pious jews from every nation under heaven living in jerusalem while they all live in jerusalem. These people who are listening to the disciples are all from different nations. They're all jewish but they all have different backgrounds. They have different stories. They have different cultural context and the holy spirit doesn't descend and make everyone speak the same language instead. Luke writes that they heard the disciples message in their own native language. He actually recounts that fact two separate times here. He says it in verse six. He says it again in verse. Eight luke wants his readers to understand this to understand that the holy spirit is reaching the people exactly where they are in their native language in their own individual cultural context the holy spirit meets them where they are we to have different voices. We have different experiences. These differences should not divide us or make any of us better or less than anyone else. How do we celebrate the ways that we're different. How do we allow the holy spirit to speak to us where we are at without disparaging anyone else. I've spent a lot of time. The past few years being intentional. About the voices i exposed myself to. I've read books. Watch movies heard stories and still. I am not an expert on racism in the manifestations of racism around us. I am a white woman from a middle class family who has had a lot of opportunities in my life. And as i read stories of people of colors experiences in the past and present i've found myself a little shocked at some things i've heard and learned shocked at some of the histories that surround us preparing for our last sermon series. Chris doubt and i both read. James cones the cross in the lynching tree we talked about james cone featured him as one of our theologians and as i read his book i found myself unsettled to read about these historical accounts of lynchings in america. That happened less than one hundred years ago. I wasn't taught about them in high school or college or seminary. I know of lynchings. But i didn't know the extent and the mass spectacle they were in our nation in the early nineteen hundreds and as i began to read and immersed myself in the historical manifestations of racism i was enraged. I was moved deeply. And at the same time i felt overwhelmed. How do i listen better to my neighbor. When they say they experienced instances of oppression on tuesday. It will mark one year since the murder of george. Floyd and as i listened to the stories of people in america recount how things have changed and not changed since his death. I began to think back to my time at perkins. I remember hearing from two separate professors people of color. Who told me they had been pulled over regularly while going to smu and regularly meeting a few times every single year during their five to ten years serving at perkins each time they were pulled over. They never received a ticket. They never received an apology. They both believe they were being profiled because they were people of color in an affluent area. As i heard these stories as a seminary student i remember reacting surprised. I remember commenting that. I had never been pulled over and i probably deserved a ticket. A few of those times too. And then in both instances. I went about my day. I have to ask myself now. How do i live in such a way that i am compelled by scripture scripture. That reminds us in corinthians that have one member is suffering. We're all suffering. How do i live my life in a way where i am so deeply to the humans around me that i don't just go about my day. My first step in recognizing racism in the world was to familiarize myself with the histories of our nation's from perspectives of people of color people. Who don't look the same as me. And my next step was to recount back to moments where i witnessed acts of racism around me or was told a story from someone who was deeply affected by racism themselves. And i encourage you. If you feel moved at any point during the series i invite you to journey on a history lesson of the oppression of people of color throughout our nation's history and to think back to your own experiences of racism when we have a posture of openness we begin to notice the real world around us when we have a posture of openness. We don't stay siloed in our own echo chambers when we have a posture of openness. We can't ignore the systems that surround us when we have a posture of openness. We assume the best of one another and we listen deeply to each others perspectives and experiences. One of my colleagues. Dr reverend dr edgar is the senior pastor at new world united methodist church in dallas. He wrote an article about a year ago. Four our conference titled zm bias. We all suffer in the article. He recounts his experiences as racist of racism as a mexican american and even while he was a pastor leading a congregation. He.

"And purpose should be about. So we don't and can't just gather for what feels like a great time together. This means that so little in the scope of the big things right. This is just an hour of her week of our time. Instead right we have to remind ourselves and francis and clare remind us. We gather as the church as christians because of god calls us to do when we leave this place. We say right is our. Our church is our methodist church in this church here that our mission is to make disciples of jesus christ for the transformation of the world. And we take this seriously here. We have a whole entire program of our church that we call serving others. In many of you of course are are already so involved in these ministries some of these ministries take place here on campus like our project. Hope which is a life. Coaching and mentoring program helps families transform life. Through practical life skills like budgeting we have school partnerships with duly elementary and a new one that started with frankfurt middle school that begins next school your new partnerships that we support teachers and students. In a variety of ways we work in our local community ministries like the rebuilding faith team in the men's service group that help homeowners repair various maintenance projects and stuff for their homes in. We're in ministry right with homeless in the collin county community through projects like the plano overnight warming. Station sides showers sandwich. Blessing snack packs and we go out of state and even out of the country with the vision of light team which provides prescription eyewear to those in need services so much a part of identity here at christ united we believe that it's so important to our faith formation right. We're concluding this whole series about why faith matters with a focus on it so you could probably see this challenge coming. This is before. I even say but onto push us today. How do we take our faith. The faith we celebrate together each week as we worship out into the world. I just listened this whole laundry. List of programs are available for us to jump into here but the great thing about this is is. there's so many ways we can serve. Serve those around us. I also just get excited when we think about the ways of serving that haven't been invented by our church community yet right. What idea or need is out there just waiting for us to step faithfully towards digging again back to our scripture. In that early church community we read about an axe. I can't help. But get that sense of boldness and passion that they had they sought to share with those around them. They saw out those that needed healing needed help. I think what holds us back at times from this kind of to is twofold right we. We get complacent right. We get used to what we're used to. Its stand all right. We get bogged down with life with the day today. Today's day in as great as it is to be an worship together. We often just get used to sitting in our seats right whether whether the seats are here. Where the seats at home. But i think the other part of the equation is conquering both the fears. We have right. The small fears is the large fears. Sometimes they're logical they. Give us this hesitancy for good reason. Maybe this is also why. I like that story. Right just like francis. Sometimes it is wild untamed wolf. That we're approaching. We don't know what happened right. We're coming vulnerably to serve. There's always risk we don't serve because we expect everyone to instantly become a christian right just great people and change their behaviors and the better but we we serve because of the world god calls us to help transform right god will be with us as we get outside ourselves and we knew that god works through our faithful offerings. Right after all we ever remember god is in the business of turnarounds. In transformation prayed that is true in our lives as well as in the lives of all we encounter in the name of the father son.

Violence Erupts Between Trump Supporters, Counter Protesters

"In the nation's capital are accusing the city of failing to protect black residents after a weekend of violence during a pro Trump rally. The president's supporters gathered in Washington, D. C on Saturday that repeated baseless claims that the election was quote stolen and some of them vandalize churches and attacked counter demonstrators. Hannah Shuster from our member station W A. M U has the story. Thousands of mostly mass place trump supporters from all over the country March through downtown D. C that included members of the extremist group, the proud boys. They gathered at Washington landmarks like the Washington Monument and the Supreme Court and listen to speeches from figures like conspiracy theorists Alex Jones and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. And the president's supporters erupted and cheers as he flew overhead on Marine One. Police tried to keep these crowds separate from other DC protesters, some who have been holding racial justice demonstrations for months. But as the night went on, violence broke out and dozens of people were arrested, including a 29 year old, who allegedly stabbed four people. This weekend was the second time since the election that Trump supporters rallied in DC leading to violence, although the crowd was smaller than when they gathered in mid November. At this weekend's protest Trump supporters toward down black lives matter Science from two historic black churches.

"methodist church" Discussed on Discover Lafayette

"The first service on June Fifth Nineteen fifty-five had sixty five adults and children in attendance very soon thereafter the seventy five member congregation. That point decided to build a church with forty seven thousand dollars borrowed and ten thousand dollars from the one thousand club. Groundbreaking was held on August fourteenth and on December eleventh the same year nineteen fifty five. They held services in the new building. And I don't think the congregations ever look back so I wanted to share this moment of Discovery Lafayette's passed so. Let's get back to you. I want to hear some more about what's going on in the Methodist Church. Some people that listened to this podcast probably keep up with national and international news about the latest developments with the United Methodist Church. And I think this may there's going to be a vote on whether churches want to be traditional Or Open for inclusion describing this right. That's okay so the United Methodist Church is a is a global domination Not just limited with the United States but to really sprawls the whole whole world and One of the things that That's been an issue that Churches are not just United Methodist Churches. But all over the world had been grappling with is about how to include lgbtq plus folks and and so Like many churches the United Methodist Church has wrestled with that And like many churches. There have been great differences of opinion on that and so in. May the United Methodist Church meets for. Its every four years. We meet as a global denomination Representatives from each of the areas of the United Methodist Church to vote on different matters and one of the votes is on whether will allow for a significant number of people who wished to to break off from the United Methodist Church. Denomination informed their own denomination Because over the years The the Turk in the United States has become more and more open to full inclusion of lgbtq folks and allow merits allow for allow clergy perform same gender marriages. And and. So that's caused a great deal of Of Anxiety among a lot of folks who for whom that's not a good choice So there have been a There've been a number of people who said you know we? We would rather have our own more traditional denomination And kind of break away from the United Methodist Church itself. And so that's what that vote in May is all about on whether we'll As a denomination will allow for that right now. A United Methodist Church. Just can't stop. Being the United Methodist Church is part of our denominational agreement and to follow the rules. And all the rules and you have to You have to stay United Methodist but But we're going to vote on whether to allow Churches to break away and to form perhaps a new denomination that is more traditionalist in its nature and perhaps will retain some of those older Rules that prohibit any kind of same gender marriages so even within our community. Let's say the Katy on a district could do various. Churches do their thing that they should become traditional. They can't It's a it's a Kinda complicated Process What would probably happen? is that This there are several proposals. That are before the This meeting that will be held at this This year will be held in Minneapolis. Minnesota But there several proposals for how that can happen in one of the one of the proposals is that that searches Who WANT TO Want to break away and join the more traditional nomination would be able to do so so if that passes then some churches would be able to do that if they feel strongly about that The United Methodist Church That would remain. Would Hopefully still continue to be searched it really embraces a lot of different viewpoints One of the hallmarks of methodism Especially in the United Methodist denomination has been. It's a big. It's been a big tent. It's been It's been a wonderful Group of People. Who are maybe don't always believe the same things about every particular social issue and to some extent we've liked that we've liked it that we could be a church where very different people could worship together and seat to follow the love of Christ With one another even Sharing differences of opinion So Some folks may be aren't as happy about that and would prefer to be an denomination where where some of those Hot Button social issues or sort of decided for them or one one particular way but the United Methodist Church will It's at least my hope. that It will continue to be a place that that gathers people have a lot of different perspectives Who can find commonality in the grace and the love of Jesus Christ rather than feeling like they have to split off and just be with people who think the same way changes tough. You know it is. It is to me when I look at the declining numbers over the years not just attendance at Church but civic engagement and different things. There's more and more of a disconnect and having a church family you know for things way beyond marriages and oh absolutely enrolls is is really a way to stay connected to feel part of a bigger family and one of the things I think so. Wonderful blessing about Asbury Particularly is that as really does draw a lot of different people who have you know from different backgrounds and different In different places different parts of the city different economic abilities in different Social places and also a lot of lgbtq folks I love coming as part of the ministries and find that it's enriching place to be right and to worship God with one another and and not to feel like you have to fight the same old battles that you would anywhere else and so so it's been a wonderful place that's gathered people of great variety in one fellowship. And that's a special thing so I think in a way we model Asbury I hope anyway. We model at Asbury. What it means for people who may not necessarily see eye to eye on everything but who can be in one family together. 'cause really that's what we're trying to be. Even a large church like Asbury is to be a family together and know that. Not Everybody at the Thanksgiving table always sees to. They never did but at the end of the day. We're we're GONNA love one another and we're going to support one another and we're gonNA have each other's backs and and the same goes for our LGBTQ members and their families who are find. Asbury to be a place to be at home. Well speaking of families we joined the Church back in two thousand two. We switched because we had moved to town. You know this was. We were country people and we moved to town. But the youth group was such an appealing the children's ministries and in the youth group was such an important aspect of what we wanted for our own. Two daughters you've got four children and they are very involved in the choir and everything but you WanNa touch maybe on our our youth group maybe in particular. I know they trip coming up to Atlanta this summer. So the youth in the children's ministries continue. They have been for years. Been the just the premier ministries of Asbury that have gathered Gathered people and help people belong and help people get connected to the love of Christ. Some really special ways and the group does that as well. The youth group is a very diverse group of people and diverse group of kids who Who simply come together. One to have a great time and they do but to really put their faith into action and so one of the things they do every year that you just mentioned is year they go and do a big mission trip and that mission trip usually consists as it does this year of serving particularly serving the poor in some place of special needs so this year they're going to Atlanta to serve in inner city Atlanta in in ministries and with nonprofit organizations all over the city simply to help people in need so not only is it Is it a great group of about eighty people who are going to go on this trip and just serve in Atlanta but it's also hopefully teaching these kids what it means to live a life of service and love for people and to really put their faith into action? It's always a special thing and the kids come back with great stories having a really grown in their faith a lot. I know I'm not gonNA name names but some kids have probably been tell you have to do this? You know maybe some we know. And they've ended up going on the mission trip. And just the bonding lifelong. My older daughter and Kelly to my youngest. I remember Taylor you know. She bonded so closely with her youth group when she started I think it was starting in ninth grade. When they took the the first trip she going on and they're still best friends. Cassie that we had on the podcast. That's now in you know she's out of New York. Cassie doyle probably know the doyle's big time now screenwriter but they became best friends through the youth group. And there's so many wonderful ties that we have friends from church so not only do they bond but this that's an experience that people care into the rest of their lives Those kinds of experiences of of fellowship in Bonding and community and the fellowship Experienced in an atmosphere of serving people it really creates lasting memories that really that really are formative for lifetime well speaking of Lasting Memories. I want to segue into this I had to use your my memory. I told you that I wanted you to speak about some of the anecdotes that you will start off your sermons with and for people. That don't know John Cannon each sermon I have to tell you I just enjoy each one. They stand on their own but one week in particular you were talking about Kevin Baugh or bow that has his own micro nation the Republic of Malaysia Malaysia and he actually lives in Nevada but he has his own militia zone space station. Space Program used. He's got his own postal service and he's self sufficient right. He's a dictator or benevolent dictator. Netherland dictator yeah. But would you kind of where? Where do you get your ideas for your stories? And for people that don't know about this. You can google micro nations or Mo L. A. Ssi Creek Story. I first of all. I think I've found that the I enjoy telling stories and I think I found that people enjoy hearing sermons that are essentially a story and so I try to always begin or at least somewhere in the in. The sermon is some story. What was his currency that he used that was. Remember cookie dough ally of Milosevic which was a freezer. We all we all like that kind of cockney. That's great I wouldn't maybe that's the solution. Our economic right. Yeah cookie dough I would. I think I would eat all mine though. I always try to tell a story and I think people remember stories. I am a collector stories in the old school collector stories. I have a Manila folder. And when I find when I come across his story Follow a few things on twitter. Where you know new sites on twitter and in fund Little little those little odd stories that pop up every now and then and and what I do is I sit in the morning. Coming in reading the news or coming across stories Email myself the story I get to the office and a printed out and put it in a folder and And then as I'm thinking about a sermon as I'm thinking about a particular scripture that I'm preaching on I'll flip through that folder and see what you know. See what comes up in? The folder has stories that go back. You know that I collected maybe a few years ago and Timeless time hopefully. They're a little humorous. Because I think it helps to to touch on a little humor in a story kind of helps us relax and helps us Open up our heart to something but ultimately the stories are meant to to to sort of convey lesson and I hope. I hope it's a little like what Jesus did. Jesus rarely just came out and said here's what I'm trying to teach. He told stories and I think it was the case that sometimes people remembered the stories more than the teaching but the the stories kind of carry the teaching and I think that For me telling a story is a way of saying Saying here's a message in here and the message is Is something that is going to relate to this particular passage of scripture and hopefully it will be a message that you're remember as you go through your next week and through your life something that really touches and sometimes people will say to me. Remember the store you tell him not certain. I remember exactly what you said about well. It's probably OK that you remember the story and that you think I hope so and I think ultimately I'm not standing up there trying to tell people now believe this and here's the message and and take that home. I really hope I'm trying to help. People think and help people really pray about About what's going on in their life and in their spirit where they might bring the the love of Christ to bear in some way and ultimately stories. Carry that message better than than some kind of die tactic too you. Can you make that argument for dive? Yeah so I think so. And and you know Steven to circle back to the lawyer thing. I think of also realized now what I didn't realize as a young lawyer is that probably the best lawyers are storytellers..
