God’s up to something good today through the people who are The United Methodist Church.

  2. A long ago Children’s exercise came to mind as I read this. I am sure you know the one where you clasp your fingers together inside the palms of your hands. Then, altogether “This is the church,’ bringing your index fingers up and pointing toward then, again, in unison, “this is the steeple”. Finally, we turn our hands upside down, opening your palms, “Open the doors, and see all the people.” It is only recently that I have realized the expansive reach of bodies of people. I have always thought “globally”, where starving, non-potable water, and all the problems in other places, it is only recently that I have begun to see myself in the group and not on the outside looking in…sometimes.
