It is pouring rain.

Here I sit in hope not felt

Yet I still believe.

I have not placed my fingers

In the holes . . . yet He filled mine.

Do Not Split the UMC: Stay & Fight with Me

March 29, 2019

Bless you, Becky, for facing challenges and serving the Lord as He seeked! My denomination and others have and do face these painful situations. Love-listen-pray!

Rev. Rebecca Writes

Why one visually impaired, brown, clergywoman is staying- and why you should as well.

Sometimes, it takes low vision to help the church have new vision.

Right now, there is a lot of talk about splitting the United Methodist Church. A significant number of people on either side of the theological divide are talking about leaving and making new forms of Methodism.

REFRESHED AND BLESSED

March 25, 2019
