Are We Missing Something?

Occasionally a new perspective breaks into our awareness and changes everything. I had one of those “God moments” a few days ago. In the midst of frustration and disappointment over waiting for things to change, the Lord spoke into my spirit. “Do you really believe my word?” Of course I said yes, rushing to answer before realizing he was setting me up.

He proceeded to remind me of Romans 8:28, “God causes ALL THINGS to work together for GOOD to those who love him.” Then He gave me an example from parenting. As much as we want to see all people healthy and growing, our first priority is to ensure that our own children are blessed. That is also true of God. Could this mean that the season we’re walking through is to benefit us first of all…to do the pruning in us so we can carry more of His glory going forward?

Isaiah 45:3 is an intriguing verse: “I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden wealth of secret places, so that you may know it is I, the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.”

God has treasure for us to discover…let’s look beyond the darkness and go find some gold!

A Simple Solution

Be sure to read this important item from the Rev. Carolyn Moore. The bishops still can lead, applying Christian love to bring a quick end to this struggle within Methodism.

There Is a Simple Solution

He Is Risen!

We at the Holston chapter of the Wesleyan Covenant Association wish all of you a blessed and happy Easter! Wherever we go, let’s declare the truth that we worship the risen Savior!

A Call to Roar

We have much to rejoice over as we enter this Passover/Easter season! The Lord is continuing to work out His plan and promise in us. Although General Conference of the UMC has been delayed another year, we can trust God has us right on time. In this waiting period, let’s increase our hearts’ desire to seek Him and His refining process. Please join us on Sunday evening for a time of rejoicing, prayer, prophetic perspective, and information on the emerging Global Methodist Church.

Thank you for your continued faithfulness to lift up the WCA leadership and process.

The Global Methodist Church

The name and look for a new traditional Methodist denomination has been announced. Read the press release here.

Please note, the Global Methodist Church is not active until such time as the so-called “Protocol” legislation passes at a United Methodist General Conference, or it becomes clear that this carefully crafted agreement no longer has the support it needs to pass.

The Global Methodist Church is separate from the Wesleyan Covenant Association, not a change to the WCA, which is organized as an advocacy group. The WCA is taking a leadership role among traditional Methodists working to establish the Global Methodist Church.

Please also take note of an online event this evening where it’s likely this new development will be discussed. It’s now recommended that if at all possible, people viewing it should use the Facebook site listed on the flyer below.
