Mark’s Musings – Family

In just a couple of weeks my wife and I will be flying to Michigan to see family and friends. It has been over three years since the last time we were in Michigan. Even though I don’t make it back up north very often, these relationships are very important to me. I love being part of my family! The distance, and time, does not take away my feelings for these people. My family is a big part of my identity.

Are You An Encourager?

On Sunday I finished one of the goals that I adopted when I became the South District Superintendent. In my first year I wanted to worship with every church in my District. This is not an uncommon goal. I expect that most Superintendents have a similar goal each year, and especially their first year. I have the advantage that I have a small district, which makes it much more doable. When I started the position last August (I started a month late due to a pre-planned leave), I thought that this would be an easy goal to achieve. I was wrong! It is amazing how many called-charge conferences and celebrations happen! Occasionally, like Easter, Mother’s Day, and Christmas, I also wanted to go to church with my wife. Then there are the occasional conferences and retreats to attend. There are so many things that look easy—until we are in the position! 

Spiritual Well-Being

I was a little surprised when the doctor asked why I wanted an annual physical. I told him that it is covered by my insurance, and that it is recommended. The truth is that I was about eight months over-due for my “annual” physical. I was due for the physical about the time that we were moving from Sierra Vista to Sahuarita. I was too busy to be very concerned at the time, and it made sense to me to wait until we were re-established in Sahuarita (we lived here once before). It made sense, but I was very slow in finding a doctor and getting an appointment. My previous Sahuarita doctor moved years ago, which is what finally forced me to move to a doctor in Sierra Vista.

Thoughts from Annual Conference

Thoughts from Annual Conference

The 34th session of our Annual Conference has ended and now is the time for us to look forward – to find ways to live into all that we discussed and planned and committed to do. As Annual Conference began Bishop Bob told us that three streams would flow together to lead us into a mighty rushing river.

“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us.”
