April 9

A Thought:AN INVITATION Two Months from today. My preaching ministry began here, at FUMC, Camden, when I was a summer youth director in between semesters of seminary at SMU Perkins, Dallas, Tex. The late Rev. Norris Steele gave me that opportunity to give the sermon that day. I remember his encouragement and I remember the honor I felt preaching to my home congregation, as well as, preaching from yet another of the pulpits my own grandfather, the late Rev. J. L. Dedman, had preached from. It’s ironic, yet appropriate, I am retiring my ministry from another pulpit he preached from: Asbury UMC, Little Rock. So, if I have been your pastor at some point in your life, or my ministry has blessed you somehow, I hope you will Please SAVE THE DATE:  JUNE 9, 8:30 and/or 10:45 am at Asbury UMC, 1700 Napa Valley, Little Rock. Special music with guest(surprise!) musicians will offer music and there will be a reception at 9:30 between services, complete with a video offering snapshots of this 35 year journey. I hope you will save the date and come be with us as we give the Glory to God, Who has called and guided this Camden hometown girl on quite the pilgrimage of Faith! We are all ‘ministers of a new covenant 1 Cor. 3.
What is God inviting YOU to do today to witness His Love to this world? Have a Terrific Tuesday!

Philippians 1:6 “ Remember and be confident of this, that He who began a good work in you, will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
