Prayer for Conference Positions 2014 (Shoeheel)

paryerBy now most if not all Conference church's has held their semi-annual "Revivals" what is really meant when this declaration is made is that "revival services" have been held. For true revival is more than a few meetings accompanied with singing and preaching. True revival brings forth change in the individual which leads to positive change for the church which is easily evidenced within the community. With deep concerns for all our Conference membered and affiliated congregations Shoeheel church has buckled itself with the privilege of praying for our Conference as a whole and for the next two Sunday evenings extends an invitation to all of those who are concerned to come and join us at 6 pm to seek the face of the Lord on behalf of His Church. October 26, 2014 and November 2, 2014 is your opportunity to express your hopes and vision for the future work of the Lord from within your local church and our Conference as a whole. These two dates are prior to our Annual Conference Session to be held at Riverside Memorial Holiness Methodist church on November 7th, 8th, and 9th, 2014.

Conference wide there are around 20 positions that are filled either through election or appointment. The purpose of these scheduled intercessory prayer meetings is to pray for the position not the person(s) in said position. For example pastors- while it most needful for prayers to be lifted on their behalf before Almighty God, the sole purpose of these special prayer opportunities is to focus in on the position not the person. The logic is simple the person serving in the capacity of pastor is every changing, the role and responsibilities of a pastor is never changing. If you cannot come in person take out your Book of Discipline look up these positions and often as you can pray for them, seek that God will place who He wishes in these positions and that He helps us to keep politics, personal feelings and emotional attachments out of the way.

Hey! Give Me a Minute or in this case Two.

A blank piece of paper is God's way of telling us how hard it is to be God.
- Sidney Sheldon-

If one takes the time to read the history of the Lumber River Conference of the Holiness Methodist Church (LRCHMC and for the purpose of this writing the Conference) there is a wealth of knowledge to garnered from its simple pages. From its inception care was taken to ensure that a recorded history of the Conference was maintained. The actions that have been carried out over a 115 year period have been kept first by putting pen to paper then by the wonderful mechanics of the typewriter and word processors then to the computer and now through the marvels of the internet the entire world has access to that storied history, one can examine its dedicated years of service to God and Country, the long held Doctrines and Discipline of the conference can be freely accessed by one and all, but what one will not find is a Vision or a message about the future of the Conference.

The past of the Conference is indeed remarkable having been established in 1900 as the only free standing Native American Methodist Conference it succeeded in leading the members of its congregations through World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq (twice) and Afghanistan plus other skirmishes along the way. It has helped its members to survive the "Great Depression" and been a solace for those suffering from depression. It has often given Hope to the "hopeless", it has always been counted on to provide Help for the "helpless". It has been the place where some of the great joys of life have been celebrated, our soldiers returning home from battle, marriage, birth of children and the worship of Jesus. It has been the place where some of the greatest tragedies of life have been overcome addictions, death and disease.

The churches of the Conference have assisted its members through the advent of flight by the Wright brothers through the space modules, the landing of man on the moon to the space shuttle to the modern day era of unmanned drones. In its history the Conference has witnessed its membership go from mule and wagons of necessity to having them for nostalgia's sake. It has seen many fads come and go the hoolla-hoop, marbles, the Frisbee and the Rubics cube. Hair styles have come and gone the rat tail, the mullet and mohawk to name a few. Can anyone recall bell-bottoms, hip-huggers or the mini-skirt? Many kings have come and gone the king of rock (Elvis), the king of pop (Michael Jackson) and a few dukes (John Wayne and Ellington), as well as, a few princesses (Diana and Grace Kelly). All of this and more is easy for the average writer to pen. But what is not so easy is to pen down by faith what the great work of the Conference will be tomorrow. Not just simply the day after today but the tomorrow of a year from now, perhaps three, five or even ten years from now. What will some great student and admirer of history one-hundred years from now to be able to say about this present day Conference? Be certain they will say something if it is only nothing.

Time's up.

Hey! Give me a Minute 0008

It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to emplore His protection and favor.
-President George Washington-

With the ability of secular government to subpoena the sermons, notes and communications of the church and pastors, while federal court rooms are casting aside the desires and Legal votes of the State- be reminded that not all votes cast in support of the marriage amendments were all Christian. But nonetheless the will of the majority is being rejected. It is amazing that in the mist of the social ills there seems to be no voice from the church. Perhaps the void is due in part to the death of preachers like Dr. D. James Kennedy, Dr. Adrian Rogers and Dr. Jerry Falwell at least this could explain the silence on a national platform but what about in the local church in the rural communities across the country.

It may be that the pastors in these areas are not exposed in any substantive manner to the issues of the day. Perhaps it is that some of our aging clergy are out of touch when there is the internet, facebook, twitter and other social media outlets that they are uncomfortable using. It could be due to the strategies of the left and the homosexual community to threaten and intimidate anyone who disagrees with their policies or lifestyle choices. It could be the fear of being seen as a bigot or narrow-minded which is ironic because those pushing these policies are so intolerant themselves of anyone opposed to their strategies. Whatever the reasoning it is obvious that the churches silence only helps to further the oppositions agenda.

Time's up.
