Pastor’s Corner – September 30, 2018

Children don’t forget to bring stuffed animals for our stuffed animal retreat.  Animals will stay at the church for a week, do spiritual practices and send pictures home.  Kiddos can pick up their stuffed animals Sunday October 7 or any day after that.

This Sunday we will wrap up our Prayer Matterssermon series.  It has been an honor to explore prayer with this community, we encourage you to go catch up on the messages in our podcast or read them on our website.  So many thanks are needed for this, including the 16 people who attended the planning and Becky Davis for sharing one of the messages.
 
In October we are inviting our congregation to participate in our “Season of Generosity.”  Our sermon series and congregational study focus will be on being a “Generous Church.”  The book study will use Defying Gravity: Break Fee of the Culture of More by Tom Berlin. This season becomes a time for members and friends of Shiloh to seek how to use their resources to support God’s work in the world.  We encourage everyone to take time to find spiritual practices that help you to recognize where God has given you blessings in your life and how you might share those blessings. 
 
This year’s focus will invite us to consider what practices with our things hold us down, how we clean out the clutter, tie our lifeline to God, and grow in generous Christian living.  We will do this through a prayer and book study on Tuesdays, hearing from members of our church about their call to generosity, and through cleaning out things and trying something new.
 
Let me share what I hope for you this season.  1.  That you find at least one skill that supports you in knowing what abundance is for you, and how you can share that abundance in the world.  2.  That you will find one new way to connect to God as you practice generosity.  
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler

Pastor’s Corner – September 23, 2018

 
Watch Our Invitation to Worship – Click to watch the video
“During Paul’s lifetime, the Christian church was not yet an institution or a centrally organized set of common practices and beliefs. It was a living organism that communicated the Gospel primarily through relationships. This fits with Paul’s understanding of Christ as what we might call an energy field, a set of relationships inside of which we can live with integrity. Today’s support or recovery groups are good examples of these relationships.”
-Richard Rohr
 
 This past week I went on retreat to work on worship planning, to be connected to God in prayer and to center my being in the teachings of Jesus. Over the weekend I am attending a meeting in Bozeman of leaders from our United Methodist Churches in the Mountain Sky Conference consisting of Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado and a tiny part of Idaho.  Many of these conversations will be about the “right” structure for us to organize under, or the ideal way to do things.  
 
I have learned one thing in particular as I have served here at Shiloh, relationships are how the gospel moves with the fire of the Holy Spirit.  In my time as a Methodist, I have learned that difference bridged in relationship is one of the sweetest gifts of God.  As I sit in these meetings, I wonder if you might pray for us, and also ask yourself, “What it would mean for Shiloh to share God through relationships in our community?”  Please email me or call me with some responses, trust me I might need them in some of these meetings.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler
