Our Journey Forward Together

Our Journey Forward Together

There are a lot of highway miles across our North District. Beautiful vistas and wonderful communities to cruise through. Because I have driven down the same roads; taking the same route time after time, I can easily cruise by a spectacular site or not even see the people who make their lives and homes in small and unassuming places. Getting from point A to point B is all too often the point of the travel.

Through this 2019 season of local church conferences, there have been glimpses of Emmanuel.  Phyllis Murray, our District Lay Leader, and I have made the circuit, visiting each of our churches.

Called Anew to Follow — the Light in Darkness

On the Christmas Eve of 1966, when New York TV station WPIX first aired the 17-second loop of 2-hours of crackling logs in a fireplace, it was considered to be a ridiculous idea, a waste of airtime, and of interest to no one. However, so many people tuned in that the station continued the Christmas Eve fireplace scene for 23 consecutive years. The fireplace scene then became a VHS tape classic and there are now hundreds of virtual fireplaces on the web.
