‘Building a community together that
explores faith & experiences God’

St. Andrew’s Online

April 27, 2016

[Jesus said] Whoever accepts my commandments
and obeys them is the one who loves me
.” – John 14:21

Saint Augustine introduces a beautiful passage in his writings by asking, “What does love look like?” He could have answered with metaphors that compare love to a child’s eyes or to daisies dancing in the sunlight.

He answers in a more practical way: ‘Love has hands to help other. It has feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of others. That’s what love looks like.”

Saint Augustine echoes and spells out what Jesus says about love in his instruction to his disciples. When I apply the words of Jesus and Saint Augustine to my everyday life, joy and love expand in the world.

In Christ,
Pastor Melissa

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
