FROM OUR PASTORS In recent weeks there has been a bit of an uproar in church circles concerning remarks made by Glenn Beck, a TV and radio talk show personality. Several Dayspring folks have asked me to respond to the comments made by Mr. Beck, which were: “I beg you, look for the words ‘social justice’ or ‘economic justice’ on your church website. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice are code words for Communism and Nazism. Am I advising people to leave their church? Yes.” I am willing to give Mr. Beck the benefit of the doubt and acknowledge that his words may have been taken out of context or that he misspoke when he compared social justice and economic justice to Communism and Nazism; nevertheless, it is a good opportunity to review the United Methodist emphasis on these issues. The first lines in our Social Principles in the Book of Discipline states: “The United Methodist Church has a long history of concern for social justice. Its members have often taken forthright positions on controversial issues involving Christian principles. Early Methodists expressed their opposition to the slave trade, to smuggling and to the cruel treatment of prisoners.” John Wesley, the “Father of Methodism,” made it one of his priorities to minister to those who were on the fringes of society—the poor, the hungry, the oppressed, taking seriously the teaching in Matthew 25 of working with “the least of these” as Jesus us taught us to do. That has been our proud heritage as United Methodists. In fact, that has been such an important facet of United Methodism that I would find it hard to believe that anyone would choose to be a United Methodist who did not want to work for social and economic justice. Dayspring has a proud tradition of working with and for those who are the “hurting” members of our society—our work with UMOM, Family Promise, Habitat for Humanity, Ribbons of Support, our Diversity Committee, our Connections Committee, our Domestic Violence Committee, PFLAG—to name just a very few of the groups we support—show that we take seriously the call of Christ to work for the good of all human kind. That is social and economic justice. It is not a choice for Christians, it is a command. Come to think of it, I believe it also is the American way. Our Pledge of Allegiance states that we are “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and JUSTICE FOR ALL.” To paraphrase the Christmas song, “Star-Child” that has become quite popular in our churches: “Street child, beat child, no place left to go, hurt child, used child, no one wants to know; this year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive.” We are called to work for justice and equality for every child of God.

ADULT EDUCATION Explorer's Class:

Contemporary Issues Class The class will not meet on Easter Sunday.

THE ORIGINS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT Through the Eyes of a Modern Biblical Scholar This four-part series will examine the formation of the New Testament writings from the viewpoint of Bishop John Shelby Spong, a modern biblical scholar and lecturer. His discussions of controversies within the Christian Church are a source for new understanding for progressive and orthodox Christians.

April 11 - How Should We See Jesus Today? (9 a.m. in the Adult Room) Since our view of the universe today differs significantly from the three-tiered universe of the first century and how the Gospel Writers viewed Jesus' presence in the world, how should we experience Jesus' presence in our lives now? In what manner does his life and witness guide us? A video-lecture on this topic by a leading progressive Christian theologian will be presented, followed by discussion.

April 18 - Gambling via Derivatives This class, led by Dr. Bob Hall, will begin Sunday, April 11, and continue through May 2, at 9:00 a.m. in the Adult Room. The Explorer's Class will not meet on Easter Sunday.

This session will address the devastation, caused by a few trading gurus, that has been experienced not only by the financial industry of the U.S. but by the majority of people in our country whose livelihoods have been severely diminished. A Frontline video on this topic will be viewed, followed by discussion on what measures are needed to limit the continuance of such activity.

Beginning April 25, the class will discuss for five weeks the topic “Exploring the Future of Bible Study Class Christianity.” To understand Western civilization, one has to understand Christianity--and yet for tens The class will continue to meet in Room 112 at of millions of people, Christianity is a religious tradition that is antiquated, perhaps even obsolete or 9:00 a.m. each Sunday morning and will be irrelevant to the challenges of the 21st Century. facilitated by Josie Teter.

DAYSPRING FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS “A celebration of the arts, alive and flourishing in our community” Beginning Friday afternoon, April 16, and continuing through Saturday evening, April 17, Dayspring will present the inaugural “Dayspring Festival of the Arts.” An opportunity for both Dayspring members and the neighboring communities to experience first-hand the incredible variety and quality of both the visual and performing arts currently thriving in the SE Valley. From an Irish Band to Rachmaninoff; from Jazz to Orff Instruments, Piano, Clarinet and Harp, and everything in between, the festival will feature a wide variety of musical performances as well as several well-known Valley artists, exhibiting everything from oils, to photography, to sculpture. All in all, it promises to be an amazing weekend for all arts lovers and arts supporters everywhere. The festival will also offer several culinary opportunities! Gourmet cinnamon rolls and coffee on Saturday morning; grilled burgers and dogs midday. And opening the event will be a Celebration Dinner on the Patio. Catered by UMOM New Day Catering, the 3-course buffet will feature a carving station, favorite hot and cold dishes, a salad bar, and several sumptuous desserts. Your ticket purchase will not only demonstrate your support of the fine arts, but also aid in the fight to end homelessness through the UMOM New Day Center. Extra special dinner entertainment will be provided by Denise Martin, KJZZ Radio’s “AZ Female Jazz Vocalist of the Year” in 2005. We are thrilled and honored to host Ms. Martin for this very magical evening. The dinner will be followed with a performance by “Cantilena,” a local choir comprised of some of the valley’s finest profession choral singers, under the direction of Dr. Glenn Bennett, as well as the piano artistry of internationally renowned pianists, Eckart Sellheim and Dian Baker. The festival will conclude on Saturday evening with the Dayspring Chorale’s spring concert at 7:00 p.m., presenting Fauré’s Requiem, for choir, soloists and orchestra. As you can see, it’s going to be a remarkable day and a half of music and magic. For a complete listing of the performers, performance schedule, and exhibiting artists, please go to our website,, or check the church’s website. Brochures are also available in the Church Office. Tickets for the Celebration Dinner will be available on the Patio on Sundays and in the Church Office during the week. For answers to your questions, please contact Rev.
