    The St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Missouri was the scene of racial unrest and many days of protests after 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot in an altercation with police on August 9, 2014. Two United Methodist pastors were on the front lines of the situation, and in an exclusive interview with United Methodist Communications, they shared what it was like to be on the streets then, and what their congregations have been working on in the months that followed to change things.

More at umc.org/videos. “Every United Methodist should visit the Strawbridge Shrine because this heritage belongs to them.” Curator Helen Kemp is among those who believe the birthplace of Methodism in America is a special landmark. The humble wood structures of the Strawbridge Shrine in Maryland were home to Irish preacher John Strawbridge and his wife Elizabeth who started the Methodist movement in the New World in the 1760s. It was here that the first convert was baptized and this was the place where the first Methodist class met and grew into a church. Current board member John Strawbridge hopes that people who visit Strawbridge will be reminded of the importance of lay people in the church even today. “The United Methodist Church is not some place that you come to hear an ordained preacher speak. It’s a place that you come to get your charge to go out in the world and do God’s work,” says Strawbridge.

    As reports of the 2014 Ebola epidemic in West Africa spread, the Rev. Frederick Yebuah, who is a native of Ghana in West Africa, decided to compose a litany for those impacted by the disease. Yebuah, who is a clergy member in the South Carolina Annual Conference of The United Methodist Church, shared the litany on the website of the United Methodist Board of Discipleship. Producers at United Methodist Communications excerpted a portion of the prayer and matched it with music and images from West Africa to create a powerful meditation for use by individuals or in group settings. It offers a way for people of faith to show their support of those who are suffering and to reflect on challenges in their own lives.

    It cleanses, nourishes, redeems, and heals. It is symbolic and significant in our lives and in our faith. The blessing of water is God’s gift to us, and its abundant presence in our world is a constant reminder of our baptism, of the eternal life we are granted through Christ. Photographs by United Methodists from various conferences accompany Sophia Agtarap as she reflects on how water connects us with our brothers and sisters around the world.
