Welcome Back...

Well, here we go again. I originally launched this blog to provide transitional connections during our move from Wilmore, Kentucky to Colorado Springs, Colorado. That transition is still unfolding but it is essentially complete. Therefore, it is time to get back into action.

I want to celebrate the Wilson United Methodist Church. Located in the north-west corner of Colorado Springs, it is near the Air Force Academy, ten minutes (or less) from the Garden of the Gods, and right in the heart of Flying W Ranch country. In short, we are blessed with a beautiful location.

But congregations are not really about location...they are about people. Some of the people are already a part of the church body while many others still need to connect to the Good News of Jesus Christ. Loud speakers will never do the trick! We can't blast our way into the lives of people. God doesn't work that way. We can only love our way into their journey and invite them to respond. Fortunately, God does most of the work. We just establish the relationship, God's prevenient Grace has already been working, ultimately transformation and joy are the result.

That is the world-wide task of the church and the Wilson community is geared up to get it done!

Blessed are those who serve the world by putting their faith in action.
Blessed are those who put their hearts on the line for the sake of others.
Blessed are those who consider the needs of others before seeking their own pleasure.
Blessed are those who seek God and respond to the faithfulness of God's Word.

Bottom line...we could sum up the Wilson community with one word...servant!
