Pray for Unity


Psalm 133:1 tells us,

"How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity!"

The events that occurred across our nation over the last year are not about unity but about my rights over your rights.

Unity doesn

We are Gods


t mean we always agree or we just agree so as not to cause a problem; unity means we come together to agree to make things better by listening and truly hearing each others side of a debate. Unity, to me, means we try really hard to come to an un-derstanding with each other in love and care. Unity to worship and praise the one who has created us, shown us grace and has forgiven us. children, all wonderfully made—can we agree in unity to worship and praise God? There will be times of disagreement but let us not settle disagreements with violence, but rather with love and care. Let us live in a place of hospitality and in the anointing from God to do the will of the creator, redeemer and sustainer.

Your Servant in Christ,



We will begin looking at long-range plans for FUMC Tallassee as our first project for the coming year. I am also looking at the shepherding committee—to get it back into action. I am getting really excited about what the education committee is going to do this coming year. I am also thankful for our music program, youth and children’s programs.

I believe it is going to be a great year. We have an amazing staff at FUMC Tallassee who do great minis-try and we also have some of the best volunteers from the congregation. Thanks for all that all of you do for the Church.

We still need volunteers to help this coming year. Some of you may still be wondering how you can help? Or what your gift may be? I have two websites I would like for you to look at that can help you answer those questions. They are:

Please come and talk to me about your results. I would love to help you use your gifts for the Kingdom. This is going to be a great year!
