[06/06/20]   Read a Note from Pastor Jim about our NEW Neighborhood Groups:

"A New Thing!" (Isaiah 43:19)
Emails have gone out to our active members about Neighborhood Groups (NGs) - "a new thing" for Leesburg United Methodist Church. Our "Point Persons" are receiving their NG contact information and beginning to reach out. The first thing? Reach out and offer to pray.
So, my phone rang this morning. A seven-year old wanted to call and ask me a question. When she heard that her grandmother, one of our Point Persons, would be praying for people because I asked her to, the seven-year old asked? Who is praying for Pastor Jim? Can I? Her grandmother said, "Why don't you ask him?" Hence, the call. Can you imagine the blessing of hearing a seven-year old ask me, "Can I pray for you, Pastor Jim?"

A grandmother responds to an invitation to be part of "a new thing" at LUMC. Who would have dreamed that her response would have such an impact?

It is amazing to see what God can do when we open our eyes and our hearts to the possibilities!

Ephesians 3:14-21
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

Thank you, God, for doing a new thing in our church, in my life, in the heart of a seven-year old.

Join us tomorrow for worship at 10:00 am. We can't wait to worship with you and proclaim God's presence and work in the world.

Let's play a game! Can you guess who this individual is based on the three facts provided?
1. This person was born in Arizona.
2. They are obsessed with animals (cats, dogs, snakes...basically everything). They will ask to pet your furry friends.
3. They very much enjoy playing video games.

Grace Before Dinner

Well, this was supposed to be "Grace Before Dinner". An hour late in recording, but upload problems have made this even later.

Can you guess the song? No, Googling. Put your guess in the comments and we'll let you know how you did tomorrow!

"We have come over a way that with tears has been watered; we have come, treading our path thru the blood of the slaughtered, out from the gloomy past, til now we stand at last where the white gleam of our bright star is cast."

A prayer by theologian Howard Thurman as we come out of our time being muted. Let us pray.

A MUST READ from our Bishop Sharma Lewis - "A Call to Action on Systemic Racism".

To Bishop Lewis' three actions, I would add: Pray. Then get to know your community. Build a bridge of understanding, collaboration, and accountability. We must find ways to work together. Instead of assuming we know what is needed, let's assume the posture of a learner and ask, "How can I help? What do you need from me?" I, and many, have posted opinions; but we have done too little for too long. Change begins where I am, where you are.

Be an agent of grace.

Grace and peace,.

Rev. Jim Wishmyer



Join us for worship tomorrow at 10:00 am here on Facebook Live or on our website at www.leesburgumc.org. See you then!

A Little Macon Music: Dre McLaughlin '09

During this time of social distancing all organizations have created meaningful ways to stay connected.
