Tis the season to reflect on Emmanuel — the indwelling of Holy Mystery.

Tis the season to reflect on Emmanuel — the indwelling of Holy Mystery.

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. We engaged in conversations about what is truly at the heart of the ministry of each church. One of the questions we have asked is — Where and how have you recently experienced the Spirit of God?

Friday Night Lights, St. John’s Style

What United Methodist Church wouldn’t like to have their fellowship hall filled with enthusiastic teenagers every Friday night?  St. John’s UMC in Kingman has a great ministry doing just that!  Several months ago, one of the members whose son plays on the local high school football team mentioned to another member that she was aware some of the student-athletes did not have a Pre-game meal on Fridays.  Was there anything the church could help with?
