Music Monday

Published November 11, 2013

How about a couple of tunes to start off your week: First up are Rich Mullins & Mitch McVicker performing an acoustic version of the title track from Rich’s 1995 album, “Brother’s Keeper”. This performance is from Rich Mullins’ guest appearance on the Wheaton College television program, “The Exchange”, on April 11, 1997. Followed by Braden Eary’s suggestion: Brandon Heath’s radio single, “Jesus In Disguise,” from his new album, Blue Mountain. Have a great week!

Published November 8, 2013

If you can’t make fun of yourself . . . well, you’re missing out. Maybe you like contemporary Christian music, maybe you hate it; but you should get at least a chuckle out of this: I don’t care who you are — that’s funny, right there! (source: First Baptist Church of Orlando)

Family Fun Day

Join the NewLife class of DeLeon First Methodist Church for fun and hotdogs on the church lawn Saturday, Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Made up of young adults, the NewLife Sunday school class is sponsoring friendly competitions in volleyball, horseshoes and washers, along with a bouncehouse for the youngsters and a hotdog lunch for everyone. There’s no cost to come and hang out, or to come and go as you please. Even if you don’t make plans to come out, if you’re driving down the road and see us on the lawn, come join in.

Light ’em Up

Published November 4, 2013

My nearest neighbor lives a mile away, down a dirt road. His nearest neighbor lives a half mile from him. You might say we live out in the country — and DeLeon, itself, is sort of out in the country, too. I know it’s November, now, but my neighbor started putting up his Christmas decorations last month. Ordinarily, I’m (if not an actual Grinch), not much of a Christmas decorator. And, since the likelihood of anyone being impressed by my decorations ranks somewhere in the neighborhood of a triceratops walking through my front yard, I don’t figure the world is […]

Visioning the Future

Published November 2, 2013

“What would be worse than being born blind? “Having sight without a vision.”  — Helen Keller Vision is: The faculty of sight Unusual foresight A mental image produced by the imagination The experience of the super-natural as if with the eyes. I have heard it said that having vision is more than just looking on the bright side. It is looking on God’s side. Finding the vision God has for us individually and as a Church takes time and prayer. I read an article that had this analogy: “Both the hummingbird and the vulture fly over our nation’s deserts. All vultures see is rotting meat, […]

Paul Thorn — Good in Everyone

Published October 28, 2013

The Tupelo, Mississippi native worked in a furniture factory, jumped out of airplanes, and was a professional boxer before sharing his experiences with the world as a singer-songwriter. His father is a Church of God Pentecostal Minister, and while Paul’s theological views may not exactly match his father’s, Paul is not shy about telling folks at his shows and in his songs what he believes about the Gospel of Christ. In this YouTube clip, Paul talks about the inspiration (“. . . to me, that’s what […]

This is the Body of Christ

Published October 25, 2013

Maybe you saw the posting on our Facebook page where Tracy Coan had become aware of a need for some help for a 3-year-old and her mother. “There is a three year old little girl in the community who needs winter clothes and shoes . . .,” Tracy said, going on to add that Mom “wasn’t worried about her needs, just her daughter’s.” “Mom is working but her hours have been drastically cut lately, making it very difficult to make ends meet,” Tracy said. “She has other assistance in place to help with food and utilities at the moment. Please […]

The Pluralism Question

Published October 23, 2013

The Discipleship Class at FUMC has been working our way through Brian McLaren’s book A New Kind of Christianity, dealing with questions it raises. The current question is titled the Pluralism Question, ie., “How do followers of Jesus relate to people of other faiths?” Other questions raised by this include: Why do you feel the question of religious pluralism is so important, and how do you rank the dangers of the two common responses (“It’s either us or them” and “Whatever you believe is fine”) described by the author? The author reviews several passages of Scripture that could be brought to […]
