W,
I would be interested in hearing more about Tree of Life.

Cindi and Husband,
e-mail one of the coaches and request to be added as leaders. I looked at both spark pages for our current leaders and they have not posted for 6 months. Granted I was gone for three months (due to faulty modem, but I would have been grateful for someone to add themselves as team leaders to my teams.

Cathy,
I've been thinking about it myself. I've just asked my husband Norman (a wanderer) if he would help. We would co-lead together.

I would love to know more about the strategies you heard about at your workshop. I work with a lot of kids that might be a good technique to use.

I'm not certain Cindi should take it on, she is leading other groups. I've told her I'd do it if she will assist.

The question is how do we make a change, assuming we are unable to find the current leaders?

Hi Cindi,
Would you be willing to be our leader? You don't really have to do anything other than clean up the stickies and greet new members. Neither one of our leaders have posted since summer.

I made a promise I would not lead any more teams until I was able to get out from under a couple of other small teams. Every time I think New Grands is going to disappear, someone joins. Same thing with Fashion Fit. I don't just want to abandon them.

Thank you for considering my request. It would be wonderful to have a pastor leading this team.

PS: I went to a really good inservice on social communication today. I haven't checked out your ADHD team, but have you been following Emily Rubin's strategies? It ties in with the Positive Behavior Supports that is sweeping the nation.

Here in Nebraska I was pastor of some blended congregations/parishes with the Presbyterian Church. One was a blended congregation and the other one was separate churches but different churches in the parish. My husband is pastor of a blended parish with the United Church of Christ.

Welcome. Where are you in the Dakotas? I'm in Nebraska. Currently about 40 miles from Yankton, SD. I lived and worked at Pine Ridge and spent a lot of time in Rapid City when I was teaching when I was first out of college.

Yeah, I don't know how blended congregations do it really. We have several blended congregations here in the Dakotas. I think some Sundays they are UMC and other Sundays they are the other, UCC, presbyterian, depending on who they blended with.

We have a couple churches in Oregon that are both Methodist and Presbyterian. They share a building, minister and service. Just some people have joined the Methodists and others the Presbyterians. I am assuming they have separate collection plates. It is kind of nice to see that kind of cooperation.

I'd love to hear your story sometime. Mine too is long and complicated, but that's what happens when one gets older, lots more history!

My dad was Presbyterian minister and after two years of college, I changed to the UMC.

Have a GREAT da and many blessings to you!

When Mom and Dad started slowing down, they switched to the UMC near their house. Dad had grown up Methodist and the switch from the Presbyterian Church they attended for years was not too much of a stretch. When I moved back to town I started going to Church with them. The people are incredible and I love the whole open hearts, open minds, open doors philosophy.

God did not so much call me, as shout at me. It is very peaceful knowing what I should do.

It is a fairly long story too, so it will wait for another post.

How big is your church?

Hi Cathy! Nice to meet you :-) I don't have much on my Spark page yet, kinda waiting to see how and what kinds of things people put on theirs. I've been a United Methodist for 40 some years and have been discerning where God is calling me. How about you?

Hello,
Welcome to the United Methodists. This team has always been small and there are several wonderful people who post here. It has been rather quiet for awhile, so I am hoping you will lure a few of our members back. I think I will pop over and check out your spark page.

I am hoping this Team may be small enough to get to know others, to share insights and to help me stay motivated. I have finally come to the conclusion that numbers do not lie, and even though I don't feel obese, the numbers say I am. I am glad to find you all.
