Reve re

From Our Pastor d r o W A

Karen “K nd i

February 2011

I

called my sister the other day in Connecticut after they recently received 24-30 inches of snow. (She said they couldn’t really measure accurately, because so much of it was wind-blown.) Did she go to work? No. She stayed home. She works for a government agency, and they had been told that ‘only essential workers’ were to report to work. “Essential workers” … what does that mean? Emergency workers (fire fighters, ambulance drivers, etc.) and road maintenance crews, electric and gas company workers, etc. are all ‘essential’ people. These are folks without whom the world cannot get along. How humbling it is to the REST of the work force to be considered “non-essential”. Who are the ‘essential workers’ in our congregation, those without whom the church would cease to function? At first glance, we might think of our church leaders - both the paid staff, and those volunteers who devote so much time and talent to the running of the church. (And we do value them greatly!) But truly, we do not function well if/when ANYONE is not there, pitching in, being a part of who we are. Sure, any congregation can be run by a stream-lined core group of people - but that is not what ‘being the church’ is all about. Our business is not one of simply making sure certain things get done (like making sure that worship happens, Sunday School is taught, our facilities function well, and the utility bills are paid). No, our <raison d'être> (our purpose for being) is to worship and glorify God. And that calls for EVERYONE being a part of that. That means ALL are learning and growing in their faith, and finding ways to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ. There are no non-essential people in our church! Here at Brockport UMC, “we are a community striving for excellence in our spiritual connection with God, loving all that Jesus loved, serving all whom Jesus served.” (Our church’s statement of purpose). Being in community means that everyone counts - - all people are important. There are no ‘non-essential personnel’. Next time we get socked with a snow-storm, and schools and businesses shut down, with only ‘essential personnel’ reporting in, think about how we in the church are different - - because we are ALL essential. We are all important - to each other, and to God! God bless you all,

Rev. Kit

Volunteers in Mission

VIM and UMVIM are both used as the acronym for United Methodist Volunteers in mission. What is UMVIM? VIM is reaching out to our communities locally, statewide, nationally and internationally to assist anyone in need. VIM allows us to provide a constructive response to disasters and hardships. Short term volunteer teams are sent out to do construction and spiritual formation projects for people and places in need. WHAT DOES UMVIM PROVIDE? Opportunities, Training, Support Services, Insurance, Recruitment and Legal Documentation WHAT ARE THE QUALIFICATIONS OF AN UMVIM TEAM? An UMVIM team is one that serves locally, nationally, or internationally where it is invited, works in a ministry endorsed by the host Methodist church, partner church or agency, or Non-Government Organization (NGO), and serves in cooperation with the local host group. The intent of this guideline insures that the presence of the team will not interfere with the authority and integrity of the church leadership, thereby strengthening and upholding the local church. The team will have a UMVIM trained leader who provides training for the team, insures completion of proper forms and insurance coverage and is in communication with annual conference and jurisdictional UMVIM leadership. During the packing phase of your trip, remember that you are in a special place doing something special and in Christ's name. When you pack, remember to include Faith, Love, Compassion, Flexibility, Understanding and lots of Patience. Come with an open mind and listen, learn, love, and be loved.
