This morning while out on my usual run, I made my way across the small wood bridge that goes over a creek in our neighborhood. I decided to pause and stretch a moment and stood, staring at the water flowing below me. In the early morning light the water was very dark and almost silently moving at a moderate pace, swirling around tree limbs and who knows what else beneath the water's surface. At times during the summer, when the rains are especially heavy, the current is stronger and you can hear the water's movement. At other times, some of the small fingers of the creek almost dry up completely. Today, thanks to many rains, there were many small and large trails of waters making their way under the bridge where they continue through the neighborhood and eventually find their home in the Tomoka River.

As I sat and watched the water silently moving along seeking its home, I thought about how the water in this creek is always moving, whether fast or slow, and that the water's movement is forever making changes in the creek bed. Whether it's a fast rushing current or a slow moving trickle, some kind of change is always occurring among the trees, branches and leaves that make up the creek bed. I've lived in this neighborhood for 10 years now and the creek is always changing.

Which is of course the same way our lives work. If we are living, we are changing. Sometimes those changes are small, slow and steady, almost imperceptible. But still, change is occurring. Sometimes, we live through seasons of big transitions and upheaval like I've experienced in the last year, where the changes are obvious and impossible to miss. But to live is to experience change, whether the changes are obvious or subtle. As I watched the water and pondered this reality, two passages of scripture came to mind. The first verse comes from Ecclesiastes 3, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven..." As we I write these words, we are standing on the cusp of a new year and we are reminded that time is always moving and with the passing of time comes the passing of seasons in our lives and the changes that come with that passage. We say good bye to 2014 and we welcome a new year, a new season in our lives. We never know what a new year will bring, only that it will bring some kind of change into our lives, as every season does.

The other scripture that came to mind is from II Corinthians 5:17, "So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see everything has become new." The reality is that sometimes change can be scary and even intimidating. Saying goodbye to the old and the familiar and embracing an unknown future can be hard, at least it is sometimes hard for me. But this promise of scripture has always kept me grounded in the reality of God's work in me and in the world in which I live. The fact is that because of the life of Jesus Christ at work in me, I am always changing because God is always at work in recreating and transforming my life and the life of this world. In and through Jesus Christ, I can trust the process of letting go of the past and embracing the future, the new, because that is his plan and purpose for me. Through Jesus Christ, I am being remade, day by day, after his image and likeness. The same is true for you and the same is true for the life of this world that God loves so much. With that promise in our hearts, we can trust that whatever the New Year brings, whether the currents of change run slow and steady or rapid and rough, that God's grace will be in it all and will use it all to bless us, to renew us, to carry us through and to use us to bless others. With that promise in our hearts, we can joyfully and expectantly welcome in the New Year with all the changes it may bring. So Happy New Year to you and may you know the gift of renewed life in Jesus Christ in the days and months of 2015!

Grace and peace,
Annette

East Central Clergy Meeting - May 14th
Florida UM Children's Home -  9am - 1pm
We are looking forward to seeing all of our Clergy on Thursday, May 14th at The Florida United Methodist Children's Home for our spring Clergy Meeting. Our schedule is 9:00am - 1:00 pm with fellowship and morning refreshments beginning at 9am. Mark your calendars and plan to attend.
In The District
Derbyshire Place
A Christian community takes shape at Derbyshire Place in Holly Hill.
When Christ UMC closed its doors in 2013, it seemed to signal the end of a 50-year era of service to the community.

A core group of about 20 church members had kept the campus alive for a short while with a thrift shop that sold discounted clothes and household items. Even that became a struggle, and finally the shop and all church activities shut down.

First UMC, Port Orange, acquired the church property in July 2013.  Now lay leaders from Port Orange are more than a year into a mission to preserve the legacy of Christ UMC by creating Derbyshire Place, an active Christian community center.

Church and Pastor Annual Profiles
UMC Logo Church Profile and Pastor Profile forms are now available.  The final submission date for profiles is January 31, 2015.

Church Profile and Pastor Profile forms should be reviewed and updated annualy by all church SPRC Committees and all Clergy in the Florida Conference.  Though a move may not be anticipated, it is important that both the Pastor Profile and Church Profile be current at the appointment-making session of the cabinet.  Profiles should be an honest reflection of the pastoral ministry and the profile of the church.

If a change in pastoral leadership is being considered for July 1, 2015 - the pastor and SPRC Chair should be in contact with the DS or Janet Kelley no later than January 15th to schedule a consultation appointment with Rev. Pendergrass.  If a pastoral consulation is scheduled with the DS, both the Church Profile and Pastor Profile should be completed online no later than one week prior to the consultation appointment. 

The Church Profile and Pastor Profile will be accessible by clicking the Profiles Link under Forms and Reports in the bottom grey section of the Home Page of the Florida Conference website.  This link will open to detailed instructions for accessing both profiles.  Follow the step by step instructions to access the appropriate profile.
Florida Conference has a new Treasurer

The Florida Conference has a new treasurer, Tony Prestipino. Prestipino, treasurer at the South Carolina Conference for nearly five years, was a search committee's top choice among candidates for the job being vacated by the upcoming retirement of Mickey Wilson.  Prestipino expects to step into his new role by late spring of 2015.

A Message from Alice Williams, District Lay Leader 
Well, if you are like me, the Christmas decorations are packed and stored, the New
 Year's resolutions have been made, the party favors are gone, and whether we are ready or not 2015 is here! May this note find you and yours well and off to a great start of the New Year! And while we've put much of the holidays behind us, I hope that each of us will carry at least a little of the promise of Christmas with us as we move into the new year. That's one thing I will say about Santa in "Miracle on 34th Street", he really had it right that Christmas isn't about a single day - it's about the way we live every day. As Christians we are called to bring the love of the Christ child not just during the holiday but to all we meet each and every day. Not sure about you, but more than ever I'm aware of the enormity of this calling and the fact that it isn't something we should take lightly.

As you start this new year, I also hope that you'll take advantage of some of the great events and trainings that are scheduled over the next couple of months that can help prepare you to live into Christ's calling. The Mission Impact weekend on 1/16/15 and 1/17/15 at Bethune Cookman promises to be a great opportunity to explore what it means to be in mission and on February 7th, I hope you will join me at the EC District Training Event! I've come to cherish this event as it seems to get better and better each year!

May 2015 be a time of growth and challenge for us all as we look to live into the calling of Christ!
 
Blessings,
Alice

Disaster Preparedness Coordinator - Jeff Campbell
Here I am again with my back up against yet another deadline. (Ten points if you know the most probable origin of the term deadline, or dead line, or dead-line. I will include it at the bottom of this article). It seems like I, as many of you I am sure, don't get anything done until a product or service has to be presented or is due. This lack of prior thinking and preparation is, very probably, nothing more than human procrastination. It doesn't have to get done today so I don't have to think about it. There are a lot of times when I get hit with a "surprise" deadline and begin to panic if I don't think I can get the task done entrusted to me in the space of time given. This is the one instance where a deadline causes me to rush. Why the interest in deadlines? This is a precursor to what I am suggesting in this article.
