When in Doubt, Love Each Other

Dart West wrote the below devotion in response to the Special Session of General Conference. Thank you, Dart, for reminding us that we must keep moving toward love.  My heart is heavy. My denomination has voted to continue its opposition to same sex marriage. Many in the church, including myself had hoped that the time had come for us to be more accepting of our LGBTQ members and clergy. It makes me sad that our denomination will not be seen by the general public as loving... Read More

We live, worship, pray and serve God in a Church that is not of one mind on several issues, including the disagreement among the people called Methodist about ordination of gays and lesbians and the marriage of same-gendered persons.

Skills and Gifts are Different

Dart West shares a devotion about discovering his spiritual gifts. CLICK HERE to take the Gifted to Serve Discovery to learn your gifts and ministry style! I was a people manager most of my working career. Because of that experience some people in the church thought I should be a part of lay leadership. I was on the board of trustees and then on the leadership board. Being a part of leadership, being "in the know" appealed to my easily inflated ego. I served in those capacities... Read More
