It Ain't Bragging If . . .

Well, you certainly will have trouble selling any product if you don't believe it is better and convey that message. Didn't Paul say to take pride only in Christ? We serve the Mighty King and Prince of Peace! You are right to be concerned about bragging, but as Dizzy Dean the baseball player said, "It ain't bragging if you can do it." In this case, "Christ can do all things," even redeem sinners. He can do it! Listen, the stones under our feet are singing out! All nature sings! Thanks.

Oh, my Dad, a United Methodist Minister and bible professor, was the nicest, kindest, most considerate driver I have ever seen. It's an example to follow.

Notable Quotes

“The period of Lent is given us to focus on what can be changed by listening carefully to the word of God. The word of God brings the clarity about injustices, but also how we are given a new opportunity to change injustices to justice. God has given that we in the death of Jesus Christ have been liberated from our trespasses as he was raised for our justification.”

– The Rev. Olav Fyske Tveit, top executive of the World Council of Churches, in a March 20 sermon marking World Water Day.

The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, lays out his agency’s plans to help United Methodists reach people for Jesus. He addressed his agency’s board in Nashville, Tenn.“We have tried to reverse this decline by trying to offering technical fixes, tinkering with our worship services, collecting huge amounts of data, tinkering with metrics and then when the metrics didn’t fit the picture we wanted, we readjusted the metrics.  [United Methodists] can’t program our way back to vitality; there is no quick fix."

– The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, unveiling his goals for the agency to create 1 million new Christian disciples over the next four years, reported by Heather Hahn of United Methodist News Service.
