You and I live in a wonderful region of the State of Ohio because of its people and scenery. In fact, the Seal of Ohio depicts the Scioto River flowing between cultivated fields and Mount Logan in Chillicothe. I love the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “ Each moment of the year has its own beauty…a picture which was never before and shall never be seen again” and the blessing is that we know the author of each of those moments. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says it best, “God has made everything beautiful in its time”.

For 4th year, church sees record giving

If The United Methodist Church had a “Paid-in-Full” stamp, it would be getting good use around the world.

A record 28 of the 56 U.S. United Methodist conferences paid 100 percent of requested general-church giving in 2017, the denomination’s General Council on Finance and Administration reports.

That’s the highest number in the 18 years that the church has digital records and marks the fourth consecutive year that a record number of conferences reached the milestone — up from 25 in 2014, 26 in 2015 and 27 in 2016.
