For his first week at Roswell UMC, Rev. Eric Lee talks about the founding of the United States. He expounds on the notion that everybody is or should be welcome here to this great nation. Going on, he explains that just like in the United States, everybody should be welcome to the church.
Dr. Mike Long shares his vision for the future of Roswell United Methodist Church. He asks the congregation to "pray fervently" about the future of the church and encourages us to reach out to friends and family to bring them back to church.
In America, we tend to make assumptions about our faith. We think that going to church or simply being born in America makes us Christians. But something has to happen - our eyes have to be opened - and we have to invite Christ into our hearts. In Luke's resurrection story, we read about disciples whose eyes were opened - whose hearts were set ablaze. For many of us, we need our eyes to be opened, and for others, we simply need renewed vision to share his love with others.
