Be the Change

advancelogoFor years, I have heard that phrase “Be the change you want to be,” encouraging us to change and others will follow. When we apply that to our Christian faith, we have to step up to a new intentionality from worship to study to giving to our behavior with others. As we gather around this country to observe Thanksgiving Day, consider whether you might be the change by accepting my invitation to help the United Methodist Advance. The Advance is a central conduit for funds and volunteers for the huge variety of Mission projects throughout the world related to the United Methodist Church. Donations made on Tuesday, December 2, 2014, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1,000,000. Yes, that’s right one million dollars. So, mark your calendar and on December 2nd, make a donation and take part in the mission(s) of your choice anywhere in the world at Don’t worry, I’ll remind you. Just, be the change.
