    Diane had been on pins and needles for weeks, wondering who the new pastor would be. Like everyone else at the Methodist Church, she hoped for a powerful orator, with a strong singing voice and, if the Lord felt especially gracious, a wife who played piano.  Wives who played piano were very popular in small town congregations.

   Diane envisioned a tall, handsome minister, probably in his early 40s, although most pastors at Lennox Valley Methodist Church were either fresh out of seminary or nearing retirement. His sermons would last 15 minutes, no more. Yet those 15 minutes would stir the hearts of parishioners and fill the pews with new converts.

    “The Reverend Sarah Hyden-Smith is being appointed to Lennox Valley,” Reverend Whedbee uttered, then continued, “and her first Sunday will be June 14.”

    The district superintendent mentioned that Diane’s committee should start making plans to welcome the new pastor.

    “Perhaps a potluck meal after her first service,” he suggested tacitly. “Some music might be nice. Maybe someone could play piano,” he added.

    Diane wisely held back from responding with her first instinct, “I’m guessing the new pastor’s wife doesn’t play piano.”

Unafraid and Unashamed

by Wil Cantrell

 

The battle for the soul of United Methodism will not be fought against other United Methodists of differing perspectives. It won’t be fought against caucus groups, the standing rules of General Conference, Judicial Council. It will not be determined by interpretations of The Book of Discipline, or Bishops’ implementation of discipline.

 

The battle for the soul of United Methodism will be fought against powers and principalities. It will be a struggle between the power of fear and the power of faith.

The Good Folks

of Lennox Valley

by Kevin Slimp

 

The childhood home of Kevin Slimp was filled
with characters of all kinds. From Raymond
Cooper, owner of the town's only radio station,
to Sarah Hyden-Smith, the first female preacher, there never seemed
to be a dull moment in "The Valley."

 

Things get even more interesting when Raymond Cooper decides to
utilize his radio fame to propel him into the most powerful seat in
town . . . mayor. Fortunately for the good folks of The Valley, Iris Long,
editor of The Hometown News is keeping a close eye on Cooper.
