Let Us Welcome Our New Pastor!

The congregation of Forest Home Chapel is pleased to welcome incoming pastor Reverend Doctor Robin Blair. Her installation and reception was Sunday, July 9. Let all who can, come worship and welcome Pastor Robin.

Pastor Blair brings her deep energy and experience to worship and the life of the church. She is called especially to serve in family and children's ministry and spirituality, and in "creative programming that lights up the hearts of the faithful for Jesus, media and reaching folks through the mission field of the Internet."

Pastor Blair is the founder of Common Good Radio www.commongoodradio.org, a missional purpose ministry to offer a commercial- and violence-free space of spiritual support through media arts. She is also a singer, songwriter and performer.

The United Methodist Church Commission on a Way Forward

 

Bishop Bruce R. Ough, at podium, delivers a statement from the Council of Bishops about the formation of the Commission on a Way Forward during the 2016 General Conference in Portland, Oregon.

Way Forward Gets Input on Church Future

In 2016, The Council of Bishops of the United Methodist Church (the global church) commissioned a thirty-two person commission to " ... seek, in this kairos moment, a way forward for profound unity on human sexuality and other matters.

"This deep unity allows for a variety of expressions to co-exist in one church. Within the Church, we are called to work and pray for more Christ-like unity with each other rather than separation from one another. This is the prayer of Jesus in John 17:21-23."
