[04/19/20]   A little “old time” humor ...


We make fun of Methodists for their blandness, their excessive calm, their fear of giving offense, their lack of speed, and also for their secret fondness for macaroni and cheese.

But nobody sings like them. If you were to ask an audience in New York City, a relatively Methodist-less place, to sing along on the chorus of "Michael Row the Boat Ashore," they will look daggers at you as if you had asked them to strip to their underwear. But if you do this among Methodists, they'd smile and row that boat ashore and up on the beach! And down the road!

Many Methodists are bred from childhood to sing in four-part harmony, a talent that comes from sitting on the lap of someone singing alto or tenor or bass and hearing the harmonic intervals by putting your little head against that person's rib cage.

It's natural for Methodists to sing in harmony. They are too modest to be soloists, too worldly to sing in unison. When you're singing in the key of C and you slide into the A7th and D7th chords, all two hundred of you, it's an emotionally fulfilling moment. By joining in harmony, they somehow promise that they will not forsake each other.

I do believe this: People, these Methodists, who love to sing in four-part harmony are the sort of people you can call up when you're in deep distress.

*If you're dying, they will comfort you.

*If you are lonely, they'll talk to you.

*And if you are hungry, they'll give you tuna salad.

*Methodists believe in prayer, but would practically die if asked to pray out loud.

*Methodists like to sing, except when confronted with a new hymn or a hymn with more than four stanzas.

*Methodists believe their pastors will visit them in the hospital, even if they don't notify them that they are there.

*Methodists usually follow the official liturgy and will feel it is their way of suffering for their sins.

*Methodists believe in miracles and even expect miracles, especially during their stewardship visitation programs or when passing the plate.

Methodists think that the Bible forbids them from crossing the aisle while passing the peace.

*Methodists drink coffee as if it were the Third Sacrament.

*Methodists feel guilty for not staying to clean up after their own wedding reception in the Fellowship Hall.

*Methodists are willing to pay up to one dollar for a meal at the church.

*Methodists still serve Jell-O in the proper liturgical color of the season and think that peas in a tuna casserole adds too much color.

*Methodists believe that it is OK to poke fun at themselves and never take themselves too seriously.

And finally, You know you are a Methodist when:
It's 100 degrees, with 90% humidity, and you still have coffee after the service.

You hear something funny during the sermon and smile as loudly as you can.

Donuts are a line item in the church budget, just like coffee.

When you watch a Star Wars movie and they say, "May the Force be with you," you respond, "and also with you."

And lastly, it takes ten minutes to say good - bye !

He has risen, just as He said!
Happy Easter Everyone!

[04/09/20]   We are 98 years old today!

When He came to the place where the road goes down to the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:

"Blessed is the king who comes
in the name of the Lord"

"Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"

Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, "Teacher, rebuke your disciples!"

"I tell you," he replied. "if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out."

We are planning to have a modified worship service on Palm Sunday, April 5th, but communion will not be served. We will sing two or three hymns, take prayer requests and concerns, and a short sermon. The choir will not be singing because they will not have had the opportunity to practice. There will be no offering, but an offering plate will be available near the main entrance to the sanctuary where you can leave your contribution, if you desire to do so. There will be no bulletin. Al has been asked to have the hymn numbers and announcements on the overhead. Please practice “Social Distancing” (6 ft rule) between you and the other people on the pews. There will be no social hour, and if you are feeling ill please do not attend.

Obituary for Roberta Flanagan Walker | Carey Hand Colonial Funeral Home

"She was known for the special quality of her voice and was a soloist with the Pfeiffer College Choir. Robbi made her life and raised her family in Winter Park, Florida. The Methodist Church anchored the life she, Bill and their three children shared." She and her husband Bill, of 53 years were very active with Broadway UMC in Orlando as newlyweds. Robbi Walker as Music Director and Christian Education leader. Robbi and Bill as Youth Directors in those volatile late 60s. They are still "in relationship" with many of the now seniors who were in high school then. They were very "avant-garde" and inspired many to remain with their faith who were at risk of losing their faith in the social controversies of the times ie. the Veit Nam war, Racial discrimination, Sexual discrimination, etc.. The couple currently members of Winter Park UMC since 1974, are continued friends of Broadway UMC. Robbi became a Methodist pastor, serving at St. Andrews UMC and was a Rotarian. "On an interim basis she preached and led the choir at Lyndonville United Methodist Church in Vermont. Robbi was a pioneering spiritual leader of exceptional depth. Through her many endeavors in life, she explored, encouraged and taught Christian Spiritual Formation, Spiritual Dance and music. In addition to being an accomplished singer, she played the piano, bells and the ukulele." We will miss her!

General information

We are a group of Christ followers who are trying to grow together in discipleship while we reach out to people in need right here in Orlando and around the world. We believe that out of a love that’s beyond anything we can imagine, God came into our human world in the form of Jesus. We believe Jesus offers us relationship with God that will last forever and that gradually transforms us from the inside out. We feel God’s presence continuing with us day by day in the Holy Spirit, offering us guidance, comfort and peace. We’re not very complicated or very big, we’re not even particularly wealthy or well-connected—we are just linking arms and spirits in our common goal of living the way Jesus taught.
