Easter Blessings!

Dear Friends,

Deep Blessings to you on this Easter Sunday!

Attached please find the link for the sermon for today it is on YouTube at the following link:

Sermon Easter 2020
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHrezrYQF6w

I am also including a link to an editorial published today for your consideration. I think it will fit well with the overall tenor of the sermon so perhaps read it after you have listened to the sermon.

Article

I hold you folks in prayer today as we all enter the Easter Season of 2020.. We will be called upon to build a new community and in a way a new church for the transformed world we will face together in 2020 and beyond. Please consider today's sermon, the article, and your prayerful meditations on the Easter encounter in 2020 as prelude for our gathering next week for worship.

Grace and Peace
Pastor Mark

Rev. Mark C Cordes Easter Message 2020

03/03/2020

General Commission on Religion and Race

In April 1968, a newly formed United Methodist Church changed its practice of sanctioned discrimination and institutionalized segregation by ending the Central Jurisdiction which separated blacks and whites in the Methodist Episcopal Church. This action was taken in part, due to the insistence of the Evangelical United Brethren Church, which proclaimed that it would not merge with Methodists if we held firm in our practice of systemic racism.

Fifty years later, the action of the Special Called Session of General Conference to support the Traditional Plan serves as proof that our comfort with sanctioned discrimination and exclusion has never left. The sin of white supremacy which has plagued the Methodist movement from its inception continues to reveal its dominance within both conservative and progressive camps of the Church.

My heart grieves for my Le***an, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Q***r, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) siblings who experienced the harm of continued rejection, insensitive and bigoted rhetoric, and emotional and spiritual disregard. I acknowledge your dedication to the church in spite of the oppression you face and respect any feelings of anger or betrayal that may lead some of you to walk away.

I also grieve for those traditionalists whose willingness to be in authentic dialogue and relationship was overshadowed by forces that corrupted the work of the General Conference.

Here’s what I know as a woman of color. Despite the changes of law in 1968, which intended to end the exclusion of blacks and other people of color in the life and witness of the church, systemic racism still plagues us. There are churches in the connection that still resist the appointment of pastors of color and actively reject their leadership. There are still Boards of Ordained Ministry and Cabinets who execute racial double standards in the credentialing of candidates for ordination and appointment. There is still a lack of focused attention in the denomination to reach growing communities of color in the United States and by extension to speak consistently and relevantly to the racial injustices that confront our world. Women are still seeking a change in The United Methodist Constitution to “guarantee” their inclusion. Simply put, changes in United Methodist law, while an essential first step, have not resulted in full inclusion for people of color and will not result in full inclusion for LGBTQIA+ people either.

There were Pharisees in Matthew 22 who sought to build a trap for Jesus using the law. To them, he replied that loving God and loving neighbor were the two greatest commandments on which all other laws and prophets hinged. Using the law as a weapon is an age-old tactic and Jesus reminds us even now that Love IS the law!

The struggle to end oppression in all of its forms and to realize the vision of full inclusion must continue. AND…at the end of the day, changing the law is simply a means to an end. Our true mission is to make love real in a church and world that needs it now more than ever. The love that I am talking about is…

A love that actively honors freedom and won’t allow the Book of Discipline to hold us back from calling justice to roll down like a river and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.

A love that actively honors humility and calls us to repent for how we decry some forms of oppression while remaining silent about or participating in others.

A love that actively honors community and binds us together as the true church — the fellowship of all believers — where we hold one another accountable and no one is alienated, excluded, or left behind.

A love that actively honors humanity and challenges us to realize that our focus on what happens in the church is not an excuse to ignore what is happening outside of the church. If we cannot be a church present in the world, then we are not the church.

A love that actively honors self and invites each of us to “do our work.” It is time for all people who experience oppression and those who support them, to confront our own biases (implicit and explicit) and get the support we need to heal our traumas, unhealthy need for external validation and addictions to mental, physical, and emotional pain that prevent us from living our best God-ordained lives right now. Our greatest hope for liberation lies in our own unfettered joy, courageous vulnerability, purposeful self-expression, and sacred action.

And most importantly a love of God who calls us to move past our superficial interpretations of love to a depth of generosity, unconditional acceptance, and passionate pursuit of wholeness that can only come from abiding in the eternal truth of love that is God.

I am committed to doing all that I can as a leader in this church to continue challenging the laws that oppress. In my heart, however, I know that I am called to more. I must make the aim of my living and leadership to make real, in every way possible, a liberating love that transforms the world and every human being in it.

The contraction, resistance, and breaking open that is taking place in the denomination right now is so much bigger than The United Methodist Church. What we are experiencing is, in a small way, the messy but inevitable awakening of the human family.

Let the birthing continue…

[05/30/19]   A letter was read on Sunday. There will be an upcoming change of leadership at Park Presidio United Methodist Church.

Dear Sisters & Brothers of Park Presidio United
Methodist Church,



Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am writing to let you know that after prayerful discernment with the Cabinet, it is Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño’s intent to appoint your pastor, the Reverend Caiti Hamilton, to serve as the pastor of Open Door United Methodist Church in Richmond, California effective July 1, 2018. This decision came after prayerful consideration around the cabinet table of the needs all the churches in the Annual Conference as well as the needs and gifts of Pastor Caiti.

It can be a difficult time for a local church and for a pastor when there is a change of appointments. This is especially true when it comes after the long and loving relationship you have had with Pastor Caiti. The Apostle Paul offered a final message to the church in Corinth when it was in a similar heart-rending transition. He said this to the grieving members:
“Keep alert, stand firm in your faith, be courageous, be strong. Let all that you do
 be done in love.” -1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Every parting pastor wishes their congregation to be so bold and compassionate.

Pastor Caiti has served your congregation well. Over her years of service she has cared deeply for the members through her pastoral responsibilities and preaching. She has led you in living your faith in tangible ways in your community. Pastor Caiti will be sorely missed. In turn, she has been spiritually impacted by your faith and love and she will strive to bestow that compassion upon the members of her new congregation. In coming weeks, please keep Pastor Caiti in your prayers during this time of transition. You are also encouraged to celebrate the ministry you have shared together and look forward with great expectation of what God will do in the next season through our collaborative and prayerful efforts. The Spirit of God shall guide us along the way.

As your District Superintendent, I have been in contact with your SPRC Chair, and will continue to be in consultation with your whole Staff-Parish Relations Committee as well as the Cabinet in order to share in what is best for your ministry and community. Such consultation and prayerful discernment will be essential as Bishop Carcaño discerns who she will appoint as your next pastor. I humbly ask that we pray together that Lord will guide us as we discern the next servant leader of this faithful community.



In faith and hope,

Rev. Staci Current
District Superintendent
