I Am The Dream

Did you miss West Ohio's Remembrance Service for the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.? The service, titled "I Am The Dream," was held at Maize Manor United Methodist Church on April 4. It acknowledged the life and legacy of Dr. King, and also recognized all those who lost their lives in the Civil Rights movement. It was also a time of encouraging and celebrating the God-Dreams we have for our own lives, as well as those for the beloved community of Christ.

New West Ohio UMCs reflect cultural changes

Would anyone have heard about Jesus if a rabbi named Saul hadn’t sailed all over the known world, telling every person he met about Jesus and planting churches almost everywhere he went?

Brad Aycock, Director of New Church Development for The West Ohio Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church (UMC), asks that question and believes the American church will look very different in the future, better reflecting what he calls Saint Paul’s spiritual entrepreneurship.

Pray for the Church on April 23rd

Greetings in Christ Jesus:

Earlier this year I spoke to you about 1968 being a watershed year in many ways. That is probably true of every year, depending on your social location and/or your reading of  history. That said, 1968 stands out in my mind as BIG. The assassinations, presidential politics, where we were in Viet Nam and on and on. We who lived through it could regale one another with our recollections.
