OUT-OF-TOWN VARIATIONS YOUTH CHOIR ALUMNI! To those of you out of town, hello from FUMC Dallas! Believe it or not, my son Adler is (I believe?) in the first class of third-generation Variations this year! And in his first year, they're taking their first overseas tour in June (not first international trip, I know some of you most senior variations took a roadtrip to Mexico City back in the day!). This year's group will fly to England for their tour in June, and we are reaching out to see if you'd consider donating to this amazing group! As you can imagine, this is a huge financial undertaking. The singers will host their annual fundraiser show in the spring, but for those of you who can't make it... would you consider donating at the link below? No donation is too big or small! Please consider supporting this amazing group of Variations, and if you prefer to pay via check, you can contact me at [email protected] and we'll arrange for that so that you can avoid the online payment transaction fee. Thanks in advance for your support!!! Lastly, please forward this link to any other Variations alumni you may be connected with, or invite them to like this page. If everyone donated just $25 - $50 each, and invited three of your alumni friends to do it as well, we'd reach out goal before the holidays. Merry Christmas and happy early New Year! -Kevin Wortley, Variations '89 - '95
37 seats still available for tonight! For same-day tickets, please purchase at the door (not online).

There are many lost souls and people eager to read the gospel tracts that they receive. Please buy me a vehicle to enable the gospel tracts reach families living in the rural communities far from my house. God bless you as you help me take the Good News to lost souls.

Dr. Andy Stoker: Violence of Love

Last Sunday, Dr. Andy Stoker talked about Sixes on the Enneagram through the story of the life and faith of Oscar Romero.

"I am convinced that each one of us hold within us sainthood. St. Romero was just like you and me. He was afraid to break out of the ways he’d always done it, to trust the world, others, himself and God to meet his needs. Once timid about social and political changes around him, he discovered an inner knowing where he needed not to rely on others for guidance but only Christ. Rather than just fight off monsters, he took on the monstrous. Rather than complain, he engaged great courage to take action to stand for what was good, just and loving, even for “the least of these.” He was secure within himself, knowing that the Holy Spirit was an ever-present guide for security and peace."

So glad to have Wilkinson Center as one of our partners!

Thank you First United Methodist Church, Dallas for inviting us to participate in FirstGifts Market again this year! We had a great time and appreciate your support!

Be sure to add these conferences in your prayer time this week!

Dr. Andy Stoker: Through the Window

Last Sunday, Dr. Andy Stoker used 1 Corinthians 1 and the work of Jane Goodall to tell our Enneagram 5s that "they can be comfortable in the world", and remind all of us that we decide what kind of impact we want to make on the world.
"In all of what we do here as a church, we represent the wisdom of the cross which is sacrifice in the face of suffering, which is hope in light of helplessness, which is love overcoming the myth of lovelessness. In all that we do as disciples of Jesus Christ, in every waking moment, we have the choice to represent the wisdom and power of the cross instead of the world’s foolishness. This is what ultimately will save us time and time again."
