Our prayers and heartfelt sympathies go out to the Hughes Family - Bill will be missed but certainly not forgotten.

[11/24/14]   Our prayers go out to Bishop Hutchinson --

Bishop William Hutchinson suffered a cerebral aneurysm while preaching in Atlanta yesterday morning, Sunday, November 23, 2014. Prayerfully the doctor was able to repair it through a cerebral angiogram yesterday and hopefully the bishop will need no further surgery. To aid in the healing, he is heavily sedated as he recovers. There appears to be NO physical damage at this time. Both Hutchinson sons, John and Mark, are with Kay in Atlanta. The plans at this time are for Bishop Hutchinson to be in the hospital for the next two weeks. Please keep praying for Bishop Hutchinson, Kay and their family. They feel your prayers.

Cards can be sent to their son, John, for Bishop Hutchinson at:

[09/29/14]   The New Mexico Methodist Foundation mourns the passing of Rev. Leonard Gillingham who passed away on Friday September 26. Rev. Sanford C**n offered the following words: "I so respected Leonard and all the time I was ED/Pres I was grateful for his years of service in the Conference and on the Foundation Board, his tenure as the interim ED between Bill Hutchinson and me, and his generous care as I was considering and applying for the position. I do feel a real sadness in his loss from our midst!"

Rev Gillingham was a long-time pastor in the New Mexico Annual Conference, having served various churches since 1960. He was also the district superintendent for the Clovis District from 1982-1986. He began as a part-time local pastor in 1950 with the Oklahoma Conference.

Services will be held Tuesday Sept. 30 at 4pm CT at First UMC in Weatherford, OK.

St. John's in Albuquerque will have a very informal Gathering of Remembrance at 3pm MT coinciding with the service in Weatherford. Everyone is welcome and invited to bring something for the alter, a story, poem, etc. to share.

Please be in prayer for Leonard's wife, Martha, and all their family and friends.


Thank God it's friday!


For all the working people out there, and let the weekend begin! Peace. BB B

[06/30/14]   "Even now," declares the Lord, "return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning." Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the Lord your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love, and he relents from sending calamity. Joel 2:12-13


Our prayers and sympathies go out to Randy Gleason and his family today as they mourn the loss of his dear wife of 22 years, Debbie.

Big news today! After extensive discussions and a year of preparation, the foundation lead by John Rivas, President, is joining forces with the Texas Methodist Foundation to become one foundation.

I will open myself to the light of God’s love today.

[02/10/14]   Nothing in all the world can be hidden from God. Everything is clear and lies open before him, and to him we must explain the way we have lived. Hebrews 4:13

[02/05/14]   My God will use his wonderful riches in Christ Jesus to give you everything you need. Philippians 4:19


God has created the thread of each life for the purpose of being woven together in community.
