Being Christians of Influence

  Tower Chimes – May 2024 I’d like to ask two related questions: I have a non-Methodist clergy colleague, someone I consider a friend and an effective pastor, who sincerely believes that the United States should not be a democracy but a theocracy.

Maundy Thursday Musical Devotion

  Miserere Mei Deus Around 1638, Gregorio Allegri composed Miserere Mei Deus (“Have Mercy On Me, God”) specifically for the Maundy Thursday Tenebrae service. The Tenebrae takes place after dark.

  May 5: 6th Sunday of Easter This is the second sermon of a 2-part series entitled “How Shall We Love?” The night before his death, Jesus gave his Disciples a “new” commandment: to love one another. This naturally begs the question, What does this love look like? This short series will only begin to unpack what active love looks like. Today’s worship theme is Loving as the key to joy. The main point is that joy comes from abiding…
