Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, May 26, 2019 – Reminder One Service 9am

Reminder: One Service Sunday – 9am for Memorial Day Weekend Only

Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for worship.
sab·bath 
/ˈsabəTH/
a day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jews from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday.
 

Friends, as your pastor I want to encourage us to take a regular sabbath.  I believe the practices of sabbath is important to us being good neighbors, and to staying in love with God.  
 
Sabbath is different from a vacation.  Sabbath is about intentional time you take each week to abstain or fast from work. Sabbath is a time for us to do activities that allow us to reflect on our aliveness, the joy of being a living creature.  As a Christian, I find sabbath to be a spiritual practice to remind me God has the ability to shape the world, even without me.  
 
One of the things I find in our church work is that we are all reluctant to take on the spiritual practice of sabbath.  We fear we might miss a key moment to be in ministry, we pressure ministries to continue when they burn people out, and we do ourselves a disservice in our practice of faith that asks us to trust God to be active when we cannot be.  
 
Taking spiritual breaks is something Jesus did, Moses did, something other leaders of the Bible like the prophets did, and in the origin story of the creation, God did it too!  We need to take this practice more seriously when we see key spiritual leaders in our tradition pointing out the necessity of it. 
 
Prayers as you seek sabbath each week.
 
Enthusiastic Peace,

This Spring we will be entering a time of learning about our neighbors. How to be a good neighbor, and how Christ calls us to this.  We hope you will join us for this sermon series of walking with the disciples as they learn to neighbor and call people to be neighbors in return. 

“Every human being has value. This is the basis of all healthy relationships. Through living each day as it is given to me, I’ve learned that. It cannot be “taught,” but it can be “caught” from those who live their lives right along with us. What a privilege to be able to look for the good in our neighbor!”– Fred Rogers 
 

Special thanks to all who contribute to our noisy offering on third Sundays.  This donation continues to fund our children and youth ministry.  In just this month alone impacted over 40 people in the two ministry events we did.  Thank you!
The community garden is prepared and ready for planting.  Please contact Buddy Kastrop if you are interested in helping with the community garden this summer.  buddy@kastrops.com 

If you want to reserve your own garden box, contact the office.  Cost is $50 a box.

Sheds are for storage.  This may be true, but our shed is being built for more.  It will also store United Methodist Committee On Relief kits that are used to support disaster relief worldwide.  Thanks to our trustees for working on this project.  To date over $3,000 has come from outside our church to support this project.  If you want to learn more about how to support this work talk to one of our Trustees: Ed Heidrich, Buddy Kastrop, Kent Thompsons, Chris Munson, or Toby Stapleton.  To date we have the foundation poured and the walls will start going up soon.

Special thanks to the concrete team led by Mark Sullivan.

Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, May 19, 2019

Shiloh 101– Sunday, May 19, 11:30-12: 30 pm – Are you new to Shiloh or want to ask questions about how you can connect more deeply to God, our faith community and take the next step in your faith.  join us for Shiloh 101, held in Padget-Goodman Hall after church this Sunday.  
Click here to watch a video to prepare your heart and mind for worship.
Did you know the Gospel of Luke has a second volume?  The book of Acts is written by the same author, we know this based on the writing style and also the way the book is addressed in the beginning to someone named, Theophilus.  Right now as we study Acts in worship, taking some time to study is prequel is timely.
 
This year I am challenging our congregation to read the Gospel of Luke. In future years I will challenge us to read the other gospels together.  Reading the entirety of the books, helps us to know who Jesus can be in our lives and to know better the stories we are called to live by.  To help us do this. I would encourage you to read the chapters of Luke in the following progression.  
 
February  1-3
March  4-6
April 7-9
May 10-11
June-July 12-16
August 17-19
September 20-21
October 22-23
November 24
December (Read something else in scripture)
 
As Pentecost approaches, I always feel a reconnection to the gospel stories as we consider our call to neighbor others.  Chapters 10-11 share a message of Jesus’ sending out 72 disciples to share the message of Christ, to heal, and to bring hope to others.  It also holds in it the Lord’s prayer, how to pray, and how to lift others up.  The Good Samaritan story is the principle parable in these chapters, and a reminder of our duty as Christians to cross boundaries and help others.  We are called in these chapters to live the Jesus’ following life with courage.  Courage is wholehearted living, and I believe that is what we see in these chapters of Luke.  
 
I encourage you to pick up your Bible and begin reading Luke this month, let’s see how reading together draws us closer to each other and to God.
 
 
Enthusiastic Peace,
Pastor Tyler #loveBillings
