Cowan and the Season of Lent and Easter Sunday

The season of Lent in the Christian tradition is a time when the followers of Christ enter into prayer and reflection on what it means to be a disciple - specifically, what it means to be a disciple of the one who embraced the world with such love that he gave his life.  On the one hand, we use these 40 days prior to Easter as a time to give glory to Christ who would make such a sacrifice for the people whom he loved.  People everywhere.  But we are called by our Lord not just to say nice things about Jesus.  We are cal

Having trouble hearing worship? We've got something for you!

We've got a good audio system in the sanctuary, and we're finally getting the hang of using the wireless mics, but for some of us, even the best audio transmission over house sound isn't enough.  To address this issue, we have installed an FM radio transmitter - set to the frequency of FM 87.9 on the dial - to broadcast on a short range signal everything coming through the sound b

Christ the King Sunday and Thanksgiving Day

Although the original Thanksgiving Day is remembered as a harvest festival celebrated by the Pilgrims in 1621 in which, according to to the traditional account, they owed no small debt to the native Americans who helped them, it was declared an official national holiday by President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War over 200 years later.  He set it for the last Thursday in November.  For Christians who celebrate the special days of the Christian year,  Thanksgiving Day coincides, within the week, with the last Sunday of the Christian year.  We call this Sunday "Christ the King" or "Reign

Fitting the Pastor to the Mission

We have a thing called a Pastor Parish Relations Committee.  This is a standing committee in United Methodist churches that functions to deal with matters concerning the relationship of pastor and staff with congregations, what in United Methodist parlance are called "charges".  Bishops and District Superintendents depend on these committees to monitor the health of the relationship between appointed ministers and the congregations they are serving.  In a healthy congregation this group serves as a forum for

Every Church is a New Church

In the 21st Century there is no such thing as a church that is so established, so rock solid, that it can rest on its traditions as old ways of doing things and remain alive.  Jesus expects us to go into the world and make disciples, which puts the ball into our court to trust that God will both provide and bless in changing times.
