I started this article some time ago when our world was in a different place We have all been glued to our televisions. watching the news about the Novel Coronavirus Most of us fall into the category of higher risk adults. My college basketball games have been canceled my sister in law and her husband are reconsidering their visit and. schools universities and yes even Disneyland is closing. Churches are closing for the duration and that hurts my heart If we change when and how we worship I now feel that this. is a life changing event Basketball games are inconsequential to our lives but corporate worship defines us as Christians If you. find yourself unable to attend church or even your United Methodist Women meeting or event I urge your group to keep in contact. with each other Have buddies or a phone tree send out emails or use Skype Alexa or Facebook Live among others to visually. see each other, Check out the information available on the website for http UnitedMethodistWomen org An article available there says. we feel tired drained fearful we feel anxious The world has become a scary place for many of us it has become a place of. injustice of hate of loneliness During a time such as this how can we know for sure that God continues to be among us Is the. Lord with us or not The article continues And in a time such as this God meets us where we are in the midst of our anxiety. and God takes us to the sacred place where we can experience God s presence and grace once again Yes indeed the Lord is. with us in this journey, We depend on God s love every day on his everlasting presence in our lives If you had attended the South District. Retreat at Troy United Methodist Church you would have felt his presence as Rev Robbins spoke to us We were blessed by his. outstanding message, I am hoping that we will continue to have Mission u this year It is scheduled for July 31st through August 2nd This year we. will be having a study in Anxiety using the book Finding Peace in an Anxious World The other study uses the book Pushout. and is about the criminalization of people of color In the South District I will be leading the Anxiety Study on August 4th I. encourage you to get the book in advance and sign up for the study when registration becomes open.

By Sharon Gibson, It was November of 1983 I was in my young 30s when R E and I had returned from a four year. tour with the Corps of Engineers in Saudi Arabia R E had a new job at WSMR NM and I became a stay at. I had missed going to the Methodist church those years overseas where we could not have any. church service In December a friend of my husband s from work invited us to attend St Paul s UMC. Christmas Program in Las Cruces I knew the moment I walked in this was going to be my church home It. looked so much like the Methodist church in Hyattsville MD where I was an active youth and everyone. was so friendly, When we attended our first Sunday service that January I met a lady who invited me to join the. Elizabeth Circle and come to the UMW General Meeting that month At that meeting they announced that. the New Mexico UMW Conference was going to have a Spiritual Growth Retreat in March up in the Lincoln. National Forest at the Sacramento Methodist Assembly site I knew He was calling me. I had never been up to the camp so R E and I took a test run to see if I could find it on my own It. was a beautiful drive and you could see God s work everywhere I was so excited to go on this retreat even. more after the drive, The day finally came and I went all by myself didn t know anyone but felt so at home when I.
arrived and after meeting all my new UMW sisters at the retreat We sang that weekend the theme song. many times Here I Am Lord I had never heard it before I cried each time we sang it I was ready for. Him to use me It was a wonderful and inspiring retreat I knew I had missed Him and the fellowship of. Christian sisters I was hooked and it s been 36 years of spiritual growth mission work learning. participating organizing volunteering fellowshipping and so much more Thank you God for that nudge. and for the United Methodist Women,Whom shall I send. Here I am Lord Is it I Lord,I have heard you calling in the night. I will go Lord if you lead me,I will hold your people in my heart.
