You are okay.
I think persons on all sides of the issue are feeling similar. It's time to pray and seek God's leading for our denomination.
I would love to say more but I have to get to work.
Have a great day!

My heart is heavy today.. I belong to the United Methodist Church. I have since I was 12.. I to left for awhile when I married and went to the churches my husband was brought up in.. I believe God can be found in many churches as long as Christ is preached.and His Salvation through faith I have now come back to the United Methodist Church..Here is my dilemma ..right now the United Methodist are discussing the issue of Homosexuality ..I don't know what I think of this..I believe yes anyone can come to Christ and be accepted and then when the person comes to Christ..He turns from sin and strives to be like Christ like..I know what I am called to love others and live a life of forgiveness..I am sorry this is so heavy and I hope I have not said anything wrong...If you would like to send me a private message if you don'f feel comfortable replying here ...as I said my heart is heavy..I just want to do what is right in the sight of the Lord and live right..than you for reading

The pain passes ~ only the beauty remains...

The book sounds interesting.

My husband and I read the Upper Room at night before we go to sleep. I use a book called The Upper Room Disciplines for my devotional time. It's based on the lectionary and is a year of devotions from many different writers. I've used it since 1998.

There are so many different guides out there.

I get a Upper Room daily devotion each morning in my e-mail. I read this each morning with my coffee. Also reading Gifts of the Dark Wood which our what our minister is basing her sermons on this Lenten season. Interesting and thought provoking.

Our pastor is also a woman, which is new to me, and a blessing.

God grant me the courage to change the things I can.

Welcome to the United Methodist Church. I grew up in the United Methodist Church, then left and joined a American Bapitst Church. I went to seminary and was ordained in the Baptist Church. Then I was a pastor in the United Methodist Church. I have to admit that I wonder why I left the UMC. I think it had something to do with teenage rebellion.
You are in my thoughts and prayers as you make your transition.

Mine is still kind of numb from leaving a church of many years, but feeling so accepted and supported in my new church, which is Methodist.

God grant me the courage to change the things I can.

Not sure how my soul is doing today. I had a huge disappointment today. Something I was really hoping for didn't happen. Still a little numb.

Every Wed morning there is a prayer service at church but since I walk, walking at 6 am is not high on my list of things to do so I told the leader that I'll pray at home

Been reading Paul Tournier. He talks about spending an hour alone with God in silence. I am thinking about that hour and the many ways we can spend it. Even a walk in nature can be that hour. I am excited to see how God speaks to me in my hour today.

My new copy of The Disciplines arrived. Enjoying using it. I had it on Kindle last year and while it was good, I still like holding a book in my hand.

My husband and I use the bi-monthly devotion for our prayer time before bed every night. My husband is a chaplain and does a couple of days a week at a large hospital. The chaplains there use the Upper Room Bi-monthly devotion magazine for the morning devotions read over the speaker system for the staff. It's a good magazine.

Our spiritual growth as Christians is very important. John Wesley began as a student gathering with others to study the Bible and pray. Lets join here to talk about our study, our prayers, and anything else we want to talk about.

To start with what do you use for your devotions or personal Bible study? I use a Upper Room book that is published yearly called, Upper Room Disciplines. I have used this book since 1999 and still love it. It's based on the Lectionary that many of our churches use on Sunday mornings. The writers write for a week and come from all backgrounds. There have been some known persons that have written devotions. Check it out.

I am looking forward to hear about what you use.
