**************************

Greetings,                                                                     

Recently while reading a devotional put out by the United Methodist Church, I was once again reminded of the importance of finding healthy ways to nourish ourselves. In this regard, my family’s move to Lacey has made it hard to eat regularly and find time to rest. If we maintain our current pace it would eventually be detrimental to our health. Yet the call from God is to find rest for our souls, not to maintain a feverish pace. (Hence, the giving of the Sabbath.) As psalm 46:10 states, “be still and know I am God.” It is easy in our world to stay so busy that we do not find time to be still and to allow God to re-create in us inner wholeness.  My prayer for you this summer is that you will truly find time to allow God to re-create in you! So what steps are you willing to take to make that happen?  You might begin by taking the time to read a devotion each day. If you don’t already do so, the Upper Room is a devotional that the church provides for everyone; you can find it in the entry area.  Another way of deepening your experience is to share your stories about how God is moving in your life.  If you would like to share a story with me, please write it up and either give it to Kathy or myself.

– Grace and Peace, Pastor Dan

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.
