One evening last week I was asked by Janet Earls to lead an opening devotion for the first session of the EC District "Great Beginnings" workshop.  Most of the churches who are experiencing transitions in pastoral leadership here in EC had leaders present to learn together about how they can best prepare their churches for a smooth transition of pastoral leadership.

As I thought about what I might share I was taken back to a passage of scripture that often serves as an inspiration for me, Romans, 4:13-25.  In this passage, the Apostle Paul is recounting the story of Abraham and the faith that Abraham had in God's power to make good on God's promise that he would become "the father of many nations".  Paul describes how Abraham was willing to believe in God's promise against all the odds, in the face of obvious physical barriers, "He did not weaken in faith when he considered his own body, which was already as good as dead".  (You have to love the honest humor here!)  Instead, Paul writes, "No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God but he grew strong in his faith...being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.  Therefore his faith was reckoned to his as righteousness".

I realized as I read Paul's account of Abraham's faith once again that this is exactly the kind of faith and hope and trust that we need, as pastors and churches, as we move into seasons of transition regarding pastoral leadership.  I'm clear as I think about my own transition this summer and as I look at all the logistics involved in such a transition, that these changes are not just about the external realities involved, which can be daunting and overwhelming.  But in the end, the good news about all of these transitions and changes is that God is at the center of all of this.  The good news is that God is more than able to prepare us and our churches for these transitions and God has been at work, is at work and will be at work through the Holy Spirit to make our way clear and our ministries thrive even in the midst of changing circumstances.

Honestly, if navigating these changes were all up to us, we could understandably be anxious and wonder if we were up to the task.  But as we look to God as the source of our hope and the author of our future, we like Abraham can "hope against hope" knowing that the power at work in us and in our churches is nothing less than the awesome power of the Risen Christ.  What a gift and blessing to know the God who brings life to the dead and who calls into existence things that don't exist, is working in us at every step in our journeys!

So if, like me, you are living into a season of transition, please join with me in putting all of your faith, hope and trust in our God who is more than able to work in and through us in this season.  And if you are not experiencing such as transition, then please join with me in praying for all of those pastors and churches that are in the midst of such a change and in thanking God for a continued season of fruitful ministry.  In the end, that is the goal:  churches and pastors bearing fruit for the Kingdom and making a difference in the hearts and lives of people and communities.  We are so blessed to be a part of that work!

With grace and peace in the midst of the journey,
Annette

Bishop Carter's Annual Conference Offering
Imagine No Marlaria - This will complete the Florida Conference's emphasis on this life-saving ministry, which is transforming the continent of Africa, where so much of the church's growth is taking place.  This is a profound ministry of healing in the name of Jesus.

Ordinand Pilgrimage to the Holy Land - We are beginning a tradition that once every four years the Bishop will take those who have been ordained to the Holy Land (Israel and Palestine).  Educational Opportunities has made a commitment to partner with us on this at cost.  (Note:  Once every four years the Bishop also leads a pilgrimage to the Holy Land that includes laity and local pastors).  This experience will add immeasureably to the teaching and preaching of clergy in their early years.

A Message from Alice Williams, District Lay Leader 
Was reading John 5 recently where Jesus was on a trip to Jerusalem, goes to the pool called Bethesda where the waters were said to have healing properties, and finds an invalid man laying near the pool.  The story goes on to talk about the miracle Jesus performed in healing the man by telling him to "Get up, pick up your mat and walk" (John 5:8).  There's a lot more to the story including Jesus being persecuted by the Jewish leaders for healing the man on the Sabbath.  But what strikes me most is the simple question Jesus asks tha man when he first encounters him, "Do you want to get well?".  It's so easy to overlook that one question in the midst of the story, but I think its implications are very profound and very relevant to us as the body of Christ.  Think about it in its most literal sense, how often will we get a physical ailment, go to a Dr. and then not really follow what is prescribed or recommended?

Often I hear comments from members of various churches about things they perceive to be broken or wish were different in their congregations, in the district or with the UMC.  And I wonder how they would respond to the question Jesus posed to the invalid man?  It's one thing to feel something is not right or the way we think it should be.  It's another to be willing to engage in dialogue and discernment that can enable healing to the things we perceive as broken.  And it's worth being reminded that just as physical healing may not come in the form we want or with the outcome we want, the healing of the things we perceive to be broken in our church may not come in the way we'd like or think.  But that doesn't mean that God is not at work through us in the process.

We head to Annual Conference soon, and I hope that in preparation we are praying for discernment, wisdom, and grace in order that we can engage in holy conferencing on the things that will enable us to fulfill our mission, "To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world".  For it's not enough to wish we were well, just as the man at the Bethesda pool, we have to want it and act on it.

Here's to a heaping does of grace and peace!

Second Annual Florida Conference 5K
June 11, 2015  at 6:30am - Breakers Oceanfront Park and Daytona Beach Pier 
The FLAC5K Team invites you to join us for the Second Annual Florida Conference 5K.  We will gather on picturesque Daytona Beach to run and walk as a community committed to improving personal health and raising support to end malaria.  The FLAC5K raised $5K for 5K last year and kicked off the Annual Conference's support of the Imagine No Malaria Campaign.  Our hope is that this Annual Conference we can match - and hopefully surpass - $5K for 5K as our Conference works towards the Florida Conference goal of raising $2.5 million dollars to help end malaria.

Now is the time to begin training for the 5K.  Consider using a Couch-2-5K program (like c25k.com) or simply adding a little extra physical activity to your life every day.  Take a walk.  Take the stairs.  Stand instead of sit.  Get outside with your family and your pets.  Every step is a step towards greater health and wholeness!

Click HERE to register.  If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Sarah Miller at sarah.miller@flumc.org.
2016 General Conference Session Elections

Nominees from the Florida Annual Conference for Election to
2016 General Conference Session

During the 2015 Annual Conference Session, we will be electing Lay and Clergy members who will serve as our representatives to the General Conference and Jurisdictional Conference Sessions. We will begin by electing nine Lay and nine Clergy members to serve as our delegates to the General Conference Session. We will then elect an additional nine Lay and nine Clergy members to serve as our delegates to the Jurisdictional Conference Session. Finally, members will elect seven Lay and seven Clergy members to be on stand-by as "Reserve" delegates in the event one of those elected above is unable to serve. With all of the ballots to be cast, it will be a busy Annual Conference Session indeed.

At this time we have 38 Lay members and 40 Clergy members of the Florida Annual Conference that have completed the on-line self-nomination process for election to the 2016 General and Jurisdictional Conference Sessions. Below are links that will automatically direct you to the lists of Lay and Clergy nominees. There you will find a picture, a summary of their basic biographical information, their local and connectional Church involvement, and their vision of/for The United Methodist Church in the future.

Eligible members of the Annual Conference will have a second opportunity to nominate themselves for consideration as a delegate to the General and Jurisdictional Sessions. Representatives from the Elections Procedures Committee will be available from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at the locations established for the meetings of the Clergy Session and the Lay Session. Eligible members may complete the registration form at that time. Once verified, those names will be provided to the members of the Annual Conference for consideration of election during the balloting process. No additional names may be added after the 11:00 a.m. deadline.

A Message from Jeff Campbell, District Disaster Coordinator
This month I would like to look at the process of a developing hurricane.  Hurricanes   can often take as much as three weeks to make landfall on our coast.  I'm not a meteorologist, so I can only base my conclusions on my own personal observations.

The first stirrings of a potential hurricane are barely noticeable.  We hear the weather forecasters give this usual announcement:  "There is a tropical depression we're keeping our eye on off the Cape Verde Islands".  The coast of Africa is a long way off and most of us don't even bother to heed the first signs of possible destruction because it is so far off and we have plenty of time to prepare.  As the days go on and the storm makes its way to the west and starts to pick up steam, we turn on our TV's to see how it's doing, more out of curiosity I believe than actually seeing it as a possible threat.  Once this storm makes its way into the Caribbean and shows no signs of dissipating, computer models begin to predict the path of the storm, and possibly now hurricane.  We take more notice and think about what we would do if it stays on a course to make landfall within our borders.  At this point most of us are still at the wait-and-see stage.  Then, landfall becomes imminent and decisions have to be made as to stay and weather the storm or put disaster plans into effect.
  
I will stop my narrative at this point.  I want to focus attention on your thoughts as you read this.  In the above scenario there has been anywhere from two to three weeks' notice of a potential danger that has actually come to be.  Were you apathetic and not seeing the real possibility that your life could be in danger?  Are you one who will wait until the last minute to realize your life is in jeopardy and possibly put others' lives at risk as you ask for assistance?  Or were you thinking about a very real threat to your safety and making ready your response?

In the same way, are you preparing for eternal life with Christ?  We are told that we will not know the date of Christ's return but there will be signs.  Are you watching for signs or will you wait until the last minute?  Even though you don't sense any real danger are you aware that you still need to be prepared?  If your life ended now, are you where you want to be?  Of all the disasters we face in this life, the biggest disaster is missing out on being with God.
