It's Not a Coincidence

Alyssa Robinson served on No Selfie Saturday and made connections that have nothing to do with her and everything to do with God. Do you have a story from No Selfie Saturday? Share it at TMUMC.ORG/mystory . This past Saturday, three people from my small group served with Dallas Ramp Project . We traveled to South Dallas near Fair Park and built a wheelchair ramp at the home of an elderly woman. She didn't want us there. We showed up with a trailer of tools, supplies, countless...

My Miscarriage Journey

Catherine and Daniel McNealy recently baptized Benjamin Leslie McNealy in worship. The joy of this occasion was unmatched because of the struggles leading up to this day. Read Catherine's story, and remember God always makes way for hope.  It was five years ago this month, at 4 am on a weekday before work, I first saw those two pink lines. I couldn't believe it. We'd only been trying for two months but here they were. I immediately pulled out my phone to calculate my... Read More

Towards the end of 2013, knowing I would be retiring in a few weeks, I began to think about what I would do.

Small Gestures Matter

Linda Norman received a thank you note from No Selfie Saturday last year, and now she's helped organize the event! Read her story and sign up to serve on October 21 at TMUMC.ORG/no-selfie . One card. One minute. One person.

Click here to join her group or browse other open Life Groups.

Feeling Troubled

Rev. Daniel Humbert reflects on the devastating events of the day: As I got into the car early this morning to workout at 5 am, I turned on my car radio as usual. The first thing I heard was the request for prayers for the victims of a mass shooting in Las Vegas. My heart hurts. I was both deeply sad and angry all at the same time. Another shooting. Another loss of life. Another senseless act of violence. Another time to mourn what should not be. I immediately reflect on Orlando,... Read More
