Turbulence -GC 16 in Portland!

Seven years ago a plane went through a flock of geese, ditching in the Hudson River-with all 157 safe aboard, known as the “Miracle on the Hudson”. Oh brothers and sisters we all have like those on that plane been rescued. In our case rescued by the cross of Jesus Christ-praise God!images

Latest today: at the Good News 6:30 am breakfast, it was announced that last night the Council of Bishops met to talk about a separation within the United Methodist Church. Behind the scenes Good News has been meeting with Bishops and Progressive reps, to see if something could be done to prevent schism. Someone on the progressive side chose to break the confidentiality agreement about these meetings, and here we are: with Jesus’ words:

imagesMy prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. Sanctify them by the truth; your WORD is truth (John 17:15-17).

Stay tuned. The plane known as The United Methodist Church, yes is in turbulence, but it has not ditched.   Your Servant for Christ-John
