FROM OUR DAYSPRING PATIO TEAM Follow the Yellow Brick Road to our New Patio. We are on our way. Imagine a patio that invites members and visitors to a lovely shaded area with seating and room to enjoy many outdoor fellowship activities. Can you picture it? Dayspring’s patio is the center of our campus and the location of so many of our church activities and it needs an Extreme Makeover. We are starting a campaign to raise funds so that we can renovate our patio area and bring needed repairs to water and electrical systems as well as leveling the red brick surface and extending the patio area into the former playground. Safety of our members and visitors is central to this plan, and updating this outdoor space will provide us room to expand programs in a safe and beautiful outdoor area. Current estimates are for a budget of about $150,000. We have about $30,000 in designated funds for this project already, but will need to raise the balance above and beyond our current operating budget. The trustees and a patio planning team have been working for many months to prepare drawings and start bringing this dream to reality. Now we need your additional financial support to move this from dream to reality. There will be a congregational meeting after second service on Sunday, April 25th where we will provide more details on the patio design and fundraising plan. You will have a chance to ask questions and make a contribution. Please prayerfully consider this, attend meetings and participate if you can. Pastor Jane and the Covenant Council have approved our moving forward with this, and now we bring it to you for help in making this happen. Dayspring’s Campus has gone through major upgrades in the last few years. This is the next step of maintaining our beautiful campus. Please follow us to our new patio.

United Methodist Theology and Beliefs So, what is United Methodist theology? What do United Methodists believe? Confusing as it may sound, we believe that we have no absolute set of beliefs. Let’s put that another way. Some denominations are known as creedal or confessional denominations. What the denomination believes is contained in a list of statements or propositions called creeds or confessions. United Methodism is not a creedal or confessional denomination; we do not have a single statement of beliefs or a creed to which every member must subscribe. (We use the historical creeds of the church, such as the Apostles’ Creed, but only as a way of affirming our faith, not as a test of our inclusion within the denomination.) Why are we not a creedal church? Because our denomination has always found creeds or confessions to be exclusive rather than inclusive. In other words, if a person disagrees with even so much as a word or a line of a creed, then that person is excluded from the fellowship of the church. A creed forces an all-ornothing theology. But perhaps the predominant reason why we are not a creedal denomination is that we do not believe that we can say all that needs to be said about God in a creed or a confession. No matter how much we say, there is still more to say. We cannot contain or capture God within the words of a creed or confession. Again, creeds can point us toward God, but they do not encompass all there is of God. So if we are not a creedal church, then we can believe anything we want, right? Wrong! We are not free to believe whatever we want, but we are free to work out our own understanding of God within some very specific guidelines. These guidelines are contained within The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church2008. The Discipline is created by the General Conference of The United Methodist Church, the only body that can speak for the whole church. Parts II and IV of the Discipline are the sections that describe what we believe and how we live out those beliefs. It is to these sections that we look for the parameters of our beliefs and clear guidelines. Here is a way to envision that: Suppose you had a huge field filled with everything anyone has ever believed, currently believes, or ever could believe about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the church, and the Christian faith. If a church is a confessional or creedal church, it plants a stake at one spot in that field of beliefs and says to its members, “You have to stand right here, nowhere else!” Or if a church is doctrinally indifferent, it says, “Roam all over the field, believe whatever you wish from anywhere at all.” But The United Methodist Church views that field, fences in a section, and says, “Believe what you discover in your own life about God, but those beliefs must be contained within this fenced-in area to be United Methodist.” ~continued on page 7~ Koinonikos

Page 6


United Methodist Theology and Beliefs The curious thing about this United Methodist fenced-in area is that it is three-sided like a triangle. The Discipline is specific about the fences that make up those three sides. One side of this triangular area consists of what has sometimes been called the common core of Christian beliefs. These are beliefs that United Methodists hold in common with most other Christians: the authority of the Bible; the reality of God; God’s act of salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the reality of the Holy Spirit as the divine presence in our lives; and the role of the church as the body of Christ. Suppose you were to say, “I don’t think I accept the authority of the Bible, and I just can’t buy that Holy Spirit stuff.” Fine. That is your business. But you are outside the United Methodist fence, so we wish you Godspeed as you seek a church that supports you in your beliefs. A second side of that fence is what has been called the distinctive United Methodist beliefs. The hallmarks of United Methodism, these beliefs set us apart from other denominations. Included are an emphasis on the primacy of God’s grace, the belief that faith and good works must exist side by side, and our distinctive United Methodist approach to organization, church structure, and polity. One of the major hallmarks of this last belief is our connectionalism, the way in which each United Methodist congregation is connected to every other United Methodist congregation through annual conferences, jurisdictional conferences, and the General Conference. Connectionalism is our way of doing together what we could never do separately, such as our mission outreach, our denominational response to disasters, and our efforts to call our culture to become accountable to God. The third part of the fence completes the triangle. Sometimes called the Wesley quadrilateral, this side provides guidelines as we ponder a decision, an action, or a belief. The four guiding questions included in the quadrilateral are: Is it disclosed in Scripture? Is it illumined by tradition? Is it realized in experience? Is it confirmed by reason? In summary, then, we United Methodists do not hold to a single statement of our beliefs, but we are called to the task of theology. That is, we are called to the task of identifying and testing our philosophies by the common core of Christian beliefs, the distinctive United Methodist emphases, and the fourfold guidelines of Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason. This does not mean we United Methodists have a firm belief on every detail of the Christian faith. As Wesley himself said in his sermon “The Character of a Methodist”: “As to all opinions which do not strike at the root of Christianity, we think and let think.” In part, this is why we do not prescribe a precise method for the sacraments: Baptism can be by sprinkling, pouring, or immersion; the Lord’s Supper can be served at the communion rail or passed in the pews using individual cups or a common cup and using wafers or a common loaf. Participation in the sacrament is more important than the outward form of the sacrament. ~excerpts from the United Methodist Layspeakers Basic Manual, chapter 2~ and from Rev. George Smoot’s sermon on April 11 Koinonikos

DAYSPRING FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS A Local Art and Music Showcase Dayspring celebrated its first Festival of the Arts April 16-17 on the campus. Friday evening was beautiful with clarinet and piano performances by Michelle Von Haugg and Jessica Yam before a catered dinner by UMOM on the patio. Soft jazz by Denise Martin floated in the air while dinner was served. Tempe Mayor Hugh Hallman mentioned his appreciation for Dayspring’s outreach to the community with this event. To close the evening, guests were graced with a beautiful concert by Cantilena, which included Opera Choruses and several piano pieces by Dian Baker and Eckart Sellheim. This was a delightful and entertaining end to the evening. Saturday morning began with Kyrene de las Brisas Elementary Mallet Masters and the Kyrene Middle School Scorpion Bells, and fresh cinnamon rolls were available. The lively performances were followed by the Irish group Black Velvet Band and Charles Szczepanek playing several powerful piano pieces. After lunch served on the patio, the afternoon moved toward more classical performances with music drifting from both the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall. Desert Breeze String Quartet was moving; Steven Cook on piano played Rachmaninoff. Trish Sewell’s soprano pieces were followed by the Tomano String Quartet, Tess Epperson on harp, and Joseph Kluesener on bassoon, with Andrew O’Brien on piano and the Paradise Winds. They played pieces from Mozart and Milhaud. The evening closed with the Dayspring Chorale, Soloists and Orchestra performing the Faure Requiem. The 90-member Chorale and 25-piece Orchestra did a masterful performance to end the Festival. The time and dedication to musical performance is such a gift by all of our musicians and choir members. Thanks to Rev. Michael Kelley and all of the music program members. A full day and a half of incredible performance under the trees and inside the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall was a true celebration of the talent living and working in our community. To see so many Dayspring members in leadership, as group members in many of the performing groups and as artists, really showed how broad our music and art connections extend into the community and how important and enriching music and the arts are to Dayspring and the southeast valley. This weekend was a rare opportunity to truly appreciate the value of music and the arts that surround us. Special thanks to all who attended, performed or showcased their work. Thanks also to Dayspring’s United Methodist Men for their support and chef services and to the Communication Team. We do special events at Dayspring with style and talent in abundance.

OTHER HANDS MINISTRY Stories from our Other Hands Team: From Dorothy Young: “I met ‘Letty’ the first time I volunteered with Other Hands. Letty and I connected when she told me about her birthplace....a small town in Appalachia called Uniontown. What a coincidence! I had just visited Uniontown several months earlier when I was doing genealogy research with my sister. That day I learned about Letty’s childhood in Uniontown. I enjoyed listening to her reminisce about her early years, particularly since I had been to her hometown only months before and could picture everything in my mind so vividly. We had such a good time that morning working on the craft project together and chatting. As I was preparing to leave, Letty mentioned that she would one day like to go back home to West Virginia. West Virginia?? I realized then that all along I had been thinking Letty was from Uniontown, Pennsylvania! A silly error on my part, but Letty and I certainly enjoyed some great conversation about Uniontown!! I looked up the two Uniontowns later in an atlas and discovered that they are only 65 miles apart! I have been back to see Letty numerous times since our first meeting and we continue to connect on many levels. Other Hands has been a blessing to both of us.” For more information about the Other Hands Ministry contact Suzanne Petticrew at 480-8991347 or suzycrew@cox.net Koinonikos

DAYSPRING NOTES The Dayspring Chorale & Orchestra in the Faure Requiem at the Dayspring Festival of the Arts

Church & Society's "Prophetic Focus" The newly formed Church & Society team has written a new mission statement. In the next several months, we will be trying to define this statement to the congregation at Dayspring. The first component of Church & Society is its "Prophetic Focus." What does this mean? It does NOT mean predicting the future which could be one meaning of the word "prophetic." It DOES mean trying to follow in the footsteps of the Hebrew prophets who felt called to right the wrongs of society and to bring justice and equality to the disenfranchised--those who cannot fend for themselves. This is what we mean by "prophetic focus." Visit the Dayspring UMC website at www.dayspring-umc.org for Sunday bulletin, newsletter, meetings, events and the calendar.
