  • Abide in God's Grace like the Seeds Abide in the Earth during Summer

    As summer's warm rays stretch out across the landscape, we can't help but notice the quiet, yet profound, way that seeds abide in the earth. While the world around us is bustling with activity, these tiny seeds remain still, soaking up the nourishment they need to grow and thrive. As United Methodists, we can learn a valuable lesson from these seeds about what it means to abide in God's grace. Just as the seeds rely on the underground water and sunlight to sustain them, we can learn to rely on God's presence and guidance to sustain us through life's challenges. In John 15:4-5, Jesus says, "Remain in my love. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me." This passage is often referred to as the "vine and branch" passage, and it's a powerful reminder of the importance of abiding in God's love. By abiding in God's love, we can experience the peace, joy, and fulfillment that comes from being deeply connected to Him. But what does it mean to abide in God's love? It's not just about attending church services or following a set of rules. It's about cultivating a deep sense of trust and connection with God, just like those seeds trust in the earth to provide for them. So how can we abide in God's love like the seeds abide in the earth? Spend time in prayer: Take a few moments each day to slow down and talk to God. Share your thoughts, feelings, and concerns with Him. Learn More Read scripture: Spend time reading and reflecting on God's word. Let His promises and teachings guide you. Explore Ways Today! Connect with others: Build relationships with fellow believers who can support and encourage you on your journey. Explore Small Groups Listen for God's guidance: Pay attention to that still, small voice within you. Ask God to guide you and show you His will. Explore Ways Today! By abiding in God's love, we can experience the peace, joy, and fulfillment that comes from being deeply connected to Him. Just as the seeds produce fruit because they are nourished by the earth, we can produce fruit that honors God because we are nourished by His presence. But what does it mean to abide in God's love? It's not just about attending church services or following a set of rules. It's about cultivating a deep sense of trust and connection with God, just like those seeds trust in the earth to provide for them. So let us take a cue from those seeds and learn to abide in God's grace. Let us trust that He is always with us, guiding and sustaining us, even when life gets tough. What are some ways you've learned to abide in God's love? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  • Creating Safe Havens: How St. Paul’s Upholds a Safe Place of Respect and Protection

    April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. In recognition of this important topic, we wanted to remind you of the ways we at St. Paul’s strive to create a safe environment free of any form of abuse, harassment, discrimination, and assault. We follow the denomination-wide policy called Safe Sanctuaries which seeks to do the following: Protect our children, youth, and vulnerable adults Protect those who minister to and work with children, youth, and vulnerable adults Protect those in our care from physical, emotional, and spiritual harm Honor those God entrusts to our care The General Conference of The United Methodist Church, in April 1996, adopted a resolution aimed at reducing the risk of child sexual abuse in the church. The following is a reflection on the adopted resolution. (Book of Resolutions, 2016 #3084) The Social Principles also state, “...all persons are individuals of sacred worth, created in the image of God.” A central tenet of the Christian faith is the inherent value and worth of all children, youth, and adults. Children, youth, and other vulnerable people are least able to protect themselves in our society and are particularly vulnerable to abuse and neglect. The United Methodist Church is eager to do all it can to protect the youth, children, and other vulnerable people who participate in the life of this congregation. We believe implementing a policy and adopting procedures to protect our children, youth, and other vulnerable people recognizes that: Our Christian faith calls us to offer both hospitality and protection to our children, youth, and other vulnerable people. The Social Principles of the United Methodist Church state, “...children must be protected from economic, physical and sexual exploitation and abuse.” The Social Principles also state, “...all persons are individuals of sacred worth, created in the image of God.” Tragically, churches have not always been safe places for children, youth, and other vulnerable people. Neglect, sexual abuse, and exploitation occur in churches, both large and small, urban and rural. The problem cuts across all economic, cultural, racial, and ethnic lines. God calls us to make our churches safe places, protecting children, youth, and other vulnerable people from abuse. Abuse prevention and ministry protection policies and procedures are essential for congregations, not only for the protection and safety of our children, youth, and other vulnerable persons, but also for our volunteers and staff working with them. The Gospel calls us to be engaged in ministry with children, youth, and other vulnerable persons (Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Abuse in the Church for Children and Youth, page 10). Jesus taught, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me” (Mark 9:37 NRSV) and “If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones...it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6 NRSV). Our Christian faith calls us to offer both hospitality and protection to our children, youth, and other vulnerable people. We should not allow possible risks to undermine or stop our ministry. Rather, we must: Acknowledge the risks and develop a practical plan to address these issues; Take steps to prevent harm to our children, youth, and other vulnerable persons; an Continue to answer the Gospel’s imperative to be in ministry with children, youth, and other vulnerable persons, thus making a difference in their lives. (adapted from Safe Sanctuaries: Reducing the Risk of Abuse in the Church for Children and Youth, page 10). Safe Sanctuaries policies and implementation of practices that reflect those policies seek to fulfill this call for our church. If you are interested in reading our Safe Sanctuaries policy at St. Paul’s, copies are available in the office.

  • Embracing Easter: A time of reflection, renewal, and rejoicing!

    Hey there, friends and family of St. Paul's! So tell us, what does Easter mean to you as a United Methodist? In this Blog Post, we're going to speak about how Easter is not just about colorful eggs and chocolate bunnies, but a time of deep meaning for us as United Methodists. Get ready to uncover the beauty of renewal, reflection, and rejoicing during this special season! History of Easter for United Methodists Easter celebrations in the Methodist tradition go way back, with a rich history filled with meaning and significance. For us as United Methodists, Easter holds a special place in our faith, signifying renewal and rebirth. It's a time when we reflect on the ultimate sacrifice made for us and the hope that comes with the resurrection. Renewal and Revival Now let's talk about renewal and revival. Easter isn't just another holiday; it's a time of spiritual rejuvenation. It's like hitting the reset button and starting fresh. Easter reminds us that we have the chance to begin again, to renew our faith, and to grow closer to our Creator. Reflection and Contemplation During Easter, it's important to take a moment for reflection and contemplation. It's a time for looking inward, for connecting with our spiritual selves. Through prayer and meditation, we can deepen our relationship with God and gain new insights into our faith journey. Rejoicing and Celebration And of course, Easter is a time for joy and celebration! The Easter season is filled with hope and happiness, and as United Methodists, we embrace that joy wholeheartedly. From special services to festive gatherings, Easter is a time to spread the message of love and renewal. We hope you can join us for our Good Friday evening service and of course, Easter Sunday! Experiencing Easter: United Methodist Perspectives We love hearing personal stories and experiences of Easter from fellow United Methodists. It's incredible to see how this season impacts each of us uniquely. By sharing our insights and journeys, we can learn from one another and grow in our faith together. Easter Traditions in United Methodist Churches Let's take a peek at some Easter traditions in United Methodist churches. From beautiful worship services to community events, there's something special about coming together during Easter. It's a time to connect, to share, and to celebrate as a family of believers. Conclusion As we wrap up, remember that Easter is more than just a holiday—it's a time of deep significance for us as United Methodists. So, let's embrace the themes of renewal, reflection, and rejoicing as we journey through this Easter season together. May the spirit of Easter fill your hearts with joy and hope. Remember to spread kindness and love wherever you go! Some reflection questions: How can we embody the spirit of resurrection in our daily lives? How can we extend grace and love to others as Christ has shown us? How can we live out our faith with compassion and humility, following the example set by Jesus? As we celebrate Easter, let us remember the power of Christ's resurrection and strive to live more fully in his Light.
