Now that you can find our churches on Facebook, by searching for Bethel UMC, French Broad UMC, or Huckleberry Springs Administrative Center and Chapel (UMC), you can check out a daily (or almost daily) devotional on any of those pages. Here's the daily thought/devotional from January 11th, which is a response, of sorts, to the shooting in Tuscon, Arizona, on January 8th. Feel welcome to share your thoughts by commenting here.

Coming soon: A brand-new Bible study! Betty Newman and I will be co-teaching the new Immersion Bible Study of Matthew, written by Ellsworth Kalas, using the new Common English Bible, beginning Wednesday, January 19th. We'll meet at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesdays, at Huckleberry Springs Chapel and Administrative Center. The study lasts for 8 sessions, so we will conclude on Wednesday, March 9th. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this post to let us know you want to join us. We're looking forward to this!

Looking for something to read in the new year? I've got just the thing for you, then! I'm hoping to do more reading this year (other than commentaries!), and I've already picked out one book for each month that I think you might enjoy reading with me. This month, I'm looking at Mark Batterson's In a Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day. I'll create a post at the end of the month with some thoughts and questions on the book, but if you'd like to read it, too, and discuss it with me in person, just comment here or email me at email@example.com. I plan to have a "book club" type meeting each month, but the details of this meeting haven't been set yet because my "book club" is missing one important thing--you!! Will you come along on this journey with me? I hope to hear from you soon!
