Interconnectedness Through Itineracy

Interconnectedness Through Itineracy

Even though we have just passed through the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, these can feel like dark times. Inflation in the cost of living from eggs to the fuel pump; mid-term political rivals painting one another as evil; the distress of the action of the SCOTUS on the retraction of Roe vs Wade; the roller-coaster of the Stock Market — each continues to cause us to spin and rock back on our heels.

Hope UMC 75th anniversary

Hope UMC 75th anniversary

An anniversary is a great time to connect — as it brings out those who have been long-time active members, new people who seek to be a part of the community, and those who have not been seen in a long time, but still consider Hope UMC to be a part of their lives.

Getting ready for Summer Camp at Potosi Pines

Every spring for more than 20 years Potosi Pines has welcomed a team of amazing volunteers from the Nomad ministry to help us keep the camp in top shape. There are few surfaces that have not been cleaned, painted, hammered, or re-imagined by the Nomads. With financial support from the Southern Nevada Foundation we have been able to fund many of the Nomad projects. These amazing volunteers spend 3 weeks in camp staying in their RV’s and help get us ready for the summer season.

I think of intriguing, ingenious, and innovative. I think of the dynamic duo of pastor and layperson — Rev. Judy Stallons and Phyllis Murray — in ministry together at Pahrump Valley UMC.

When bad news comes in multiples, life feels and looks bleak and dark. The future and way ahead does not look promising but rather troubling, perplexing, and at its best, uncertain.

Working the Great Connection – one step at a time

Working the Great Connection – one step at a time

I was frustrated, disappointed, and sad that our North District Leadership Conference was not to be in-person, but rather online — on zoom. I was ready to enjoy conversation in the same room with leaders across the district. I was looking forward to those one-to-one conversations that don’t happen quite so well on the phone, email, or even web video. I wasn’t thinking so clearly. I needed to get out for my evening walk to move, reflect on the day, and plan for the next.

The Great Connection

The Great Connection

Since John Wesley began a movement which came to be known as the Methodist Church, connecting has been a value, a practice, and a part of the fabric of the organization. Through the years, The United Methodist Church has created a structure to keep the connection strong.
