United Methodist Committee on Relief
In support of children’s education programs in Haiti and around the world, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is launching a renewed call for school kits and health kits.
In Haiti, UMCOR is one of various non-governmental organizations partnering with Care International and its Partnership for Learning Program. Through this program, CARE is committed to helping 50,000 underserved students in Haiti.
The Government of Haiti has made access to free, universal education a priority, but thousands of children remain unable to go to school, explained Thodleen Dessources, UMCOR's program manager for Haiti.
“Many children live in remote rural areas,” she said. “In addition, there are large numbers of street children and children known as 'restavek’ (the pejorative creole term for domestic servants), who have no access to education.”
UMCOR will provide school kits and health kits, as well as text books that will be purchased in Haiti, in support of the CARE program.
“The inclusion of textbooks purchased in Haiti ensures that these materials will be available in relevant languages and that they already have been approved by the Ministry of Education,” said Dessources.
UMCOR's Haiti field staff also will provide hygiene education, including teaching children how to properly wash their hands and brush their teeth.
UMCOR's goal is to provide 50,000 each of school kits and health kits, at a rate of 10,000 of each type of kit per year for the next five years. “Reaching these amounts will depend upon our stock of school kits and health kits. If the kits aren't replenished, we will not meet this goal,” Dessources underscored.
You can assemble health kits and school kits, and send them to one of the depots in the UMCOR Relief-Supply Network.
You also can support this ministry with your gifts to Material Resources, Advance #901440, which enhances the purchase of emergency relief supplies all throughout the year.

A posse of young boys armed with slingshots blockades a road to prevent a Red Cross vehicle from bringing medical supplies into a village wracked by Ebola. In another area, residents throw stones at an arriving health team. And in a another, villagers flee when a health worker in a white lab coat makes calls in the neighborhood.
These reports remind me of conversations I have had with survivors of horrific conflict. Having worked around the world, I have seen and heard the fear and mistrust that people have of government and others in official capacities in places such as Kampuchea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and South Africa. In these places, the common historical theme is social conflict, and in some places outright war.
I recall a conversation I struck up with a young man sitting under a large umbrella by the roadside in Monrovia a few years ago. He was selling lottery tickets and gasoline in quart glass bottles. I learned he was a high school student when his education was interrupted by the civil war in Liberia. He wanted to study agronomy, but the post-war economy was making survival difficult and the dream of college unrealistic.
I asked him where he spent the war. His voice lowered and his expression changed.
“I moved about,” he said. “Sometimes to the bush, sometimes hiding in the city.”
Pointing to a now-empty swimming pool in an abandoned hotel across the street, he said, “See that pool? I was caught once by a gang of young guys who put a tire around me and threw me into that pool to drown. They were crazy.”
As if the war was not horrific enough, when peace came, gangs of young men armed with military weapons roved the city, robbing and intimidating the people until the U.N. established order and disarmed the former fighters. Without effective government, there was no security, and pronouncements by those who claimed leadership were unreliable. The nightmare of war does not end when the shooting stops.
Liberia and Sierra Leone are post-conflict societies. They are recovering, but strong civil institutions and governance are still evolving. Infrastructure such as sanitation, electricity, communication, health and education are weak. In both, a generation of children lost their childhood because they were born in a time of war. They didn’t attend school, and many were internal migrants or refugees in neighboring countries. And they’ve experienced trauma.
Health systems, never particularly strong, remain weak and fragile. For example, in the county most affected by Ebola in Liberia, according to a story in the New York Times, the health surveillance officer does not have a computer to track disease statistics. As a consequence, the health officer could not track the outbreak of Ebola in real time, and was relegated to an inadequate pen and paper record that was woefully behind the rapid spread of the virus.
Trust depends on the effectiveness of the government and its institutions to deliver adequate, impartial service to its citizens. Weak institutions cannot do this.
It’s true that people fear the Ebola virus and the toll it takes. But I think there is another, less obvious factor at work as well. It is the residual emotional state of people who are recovering from traumatic experiences in post-conflict societies. This trauma is often masked.
In daily survival it goes unnoticed, and in many places it does not figure into ongoing relationships. In others, of course, it remains a prickly source of conflict that has not been resolved. However, it’s been my anecdotal experience that in post-conflict societies, trauma is not far below the surface, and in times of crisis, when trust is on the line, it can rear its head.
Efforts to create reconciliation commissions have been tried with varying degrees of success. Sometimes they provide a platform for the abused to have a voice, sometimes they exacerbate unresolved divisions.
When I talk with people who have been through terrible experiences such as civil war, I often hear stories told in soft voices that surface pain and loss. Sometimes this pain is expressed with strong language that reveals unresolved feelings of injustice and indignity. Sometimes people are reticent to talk about their experiences at all. They fear retribution. Some don’t want to recall horrible memories. These unresolved conflicting emotions are carried silently. They reflect great personal loss. Spouses, children and whole families have been lost. Homes and sometimes entire communities have been wiped out.
This emotional reservoir, along with weak government, social structures and economies, creates a stew of uncertainty, unmet needs and struggle. In the case of Ebola, I think it points to a need for clear, trusted voices to interpret the reality of the virus, and to encourage people to get medical care and avoid traditional healing. It’s also important for the church to provide messages of hope, comfort, encouragement and concern. In this circumstance, it’s a form of public witness in addition to a vital community service.
This alone cannot heal the broken trust, but it is a step toward healing. Other actions must be taken as well. Improving the health system, physical infrastructure, education and governance are critical. Economic development is necessary to improve work opportunities.
The church has another important gift to offer people in these societies. While large group gatherings are being discouraged during the contagion, under better conditions local congregations are communities of support where spiritual comfort and assurance are given, and personal growth and development occur. In faith communities, people are assured that life is sacred. Life is a gift of God, and God’s intent is not for us to suffer, kill or be killed. God’s intent is for us to flourish, and to find purpose and meaning. In The United Methodist Church, we speak of God’s graciousness. In post-conflict societies, the community of faith can be a means of grace.
What the Ebola crisis has revealed is that residual trauma and weak civil society infrastructure have long-term effects. Untended, these can threaten global well-being in unexpected ways. But this is not the end of the story. It is only the beginning.
Grand Rapids 1st UMC
Imagine being 10 years old.
Imagine hearing that in Africa malaria kills a person every 60 seconds.
Imagine understanding that most of malaria’s victims are under the age of five and pregnant women.
Imagine being asked to help.
The children who attended Arts Alive Camp sponsored by Grand Rapids First UMC experienced the joy of African culture through art, music, drumming, and dance. They also learned Jesus healed the sick and that Jesus challenges us to help others in the same way. They learned $10 buys a net, which will protect a child from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. They learned $10 saves a life.
On Monday, the children were challenged to bring an offering each day. They were encouraged to do something to earn the money for an offering, perhaps by doing chores at home. They were challenged to save the lives of children threatened by malaria.
On Tuesday, the money began to trickle in. A spattering of dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies was enough to save six lives. On Wednesday, the money poured in; it was enough to save an additional 34 lives! Each child contributed. Each child made a difference.
Caden, one of our 10-year-old campers, raised his hand on Tuesday and asked if it was okay for him to wait until Thursday (our field trip day) to bring his offering in. Bright and early on Thursday morning, Caden handed me a zip lock sandwich bag full of money. I was busy checking in children for our field trip at Meijer Gardens and vaguely heard him say something about cookies. Late in the day, I called Caden at home and asked him to tell me how he collected the money for his offering.
With his mother’s help, Caden and his sister baked cookies and sold them in their neighborhood. He told his neighbors that he was raising money to purchase malaria-preventing mosquito nets. After selling the first batch of cookies, Caden was dismayed that he only had $9. He told me, “I panicked because that wasn’t enough to buy a net!” When he arrived home he discovered a “giant tray” of additional cookies. He said he didn’t stop until he sold enough cookies to raise $40, saving four lives.
Well-done to every child who attended Arts Alive Camp! In total, $482.92 was given. That represents a lot of chores and cookies!
Imagine being 10 years old. Imagine saving lives. Imagine No Malaria!
The General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) recently settled a disagreement with one of the founding partners of UMCmarket.org. During the process, UMCmarket.net was developed so that the program did not cease operation. In the settlement, GCFA regains full rights of UMCmarket.org, the online shopping portal for United Methodists.
At www.UMCmarket.org, United Methodist shoppers can browse through and shop with a vast array of online vendors.
The process is simple: Log on to www.UMCmarket.org, create a profile, select the local church or other church entity you’d like donations made to, search for a vendor by name or category, click on the vendor page and shop online as you regularly would.
When shoppers use this portal, each retailer has agreed to donate a percentage of the purchases to the local church or United Methodist group of the shopper’s choice. Each time the total of donations reaches $100, the church (or group) will be sent a check in the mail.
Zebraplace, GCFA’s strategic sponsor for the online shopping portal, has enhanced its marketing department and revamped the website. The current site should be easier to navigate. Joakim Richter, the CEO of Zebraplace said "UMCmarket is committed to helping United Methodist churches fulfill their mission by providing an alternative method of receiving funds for ministry generated from online shopping. With our new site and the ‘Easy Give Button’, it's now easier than ever for members to sign up, shop, and generate a donation.
We invite all ministries to share the process with their congregation. It's easy and free. Together we can see your donations make a difference."
|A new campus ministries program, EncounterMICall, has been granted $64,000 to expand a program that began at the Kalamazoo Wesley Foundation.|
The General Board of Higher Education and Ministry has released names of recipients of the second round of Young Clergy Initiative grants. There were 164 grant applications over the two rounds, and 75 awards were made totaling about $5.5 million.
Three Michigan clergy, Paul Perez, Carl Gladstone and Lisa Batten wrote a proposal to expand Kalamazoo Wesley's congregational internship program to 30 interns at campus ministries across the state. The program, called EncounterMICall, was awarded $64,000. (Further details next week.)
Grants ranged in size from $100,000 to $5,000. Kim Ingram, a member of the YCI Selection Committee, said of the diversity among applicants, “We got grant requests from a number of different kinds of sources—local churches, districts, campus ministries, conferences, non-profits, seminaries, United Methodist [related] colleges, foundations, and camps.”
“There were also some exciting partnerships that were going to happen as a result [of the YCI grants awarded,] through campus ministries and United Methodist [related] colleges, between churches and campus ministries, between seminaries and conferences, [and] between a seminary and a college,” Ingram said. “We’re excited about people working together.”
She also said that as a result of reading through applications, the board is working to partner people from different parts of the country who are trying to do similar things so that they’ll be in conversation with one another.
The goal of the grant program is to support good ideas from all levels of the church about how to prepare young people to hear God’s call to ordained ministry, assist young people in responding to God’s call to ordained ministry, develop young people in spiritual and theological formation, and nurture young clergy for lifelong transformational ministry.
“Simulating innovation and creativity is difficult,” Mills said of the selection process. “We really need to look at and balance the benefits and challenges of an approach that is grassroots. This [approach] was more grassroots in that the call went out as a general call versus a more targeted effort.”
Some of the other projects approved included:
General Conference 2012 created the $7 million fund to address the need for young clergy in the UMC. While $7 million was approved, the amount disbursed was about $5.5 million, since the actual funds are dependent on payments to the World Service apportionment fund.
The Crossroads District Leadership Team and all of it's committee members are to attend this 2014-2015 planning meeting.

It is late August, we have moved into the new office, and are now poised at the beginning of yet another fall season of Church Conferences and pre-Advent preparations. In many ways, it is reassuring to step into the familiar rhythms of fall on the church calendar. But God is always doing new things in our midst, and hiding in the familiar rhythms of how we have always done things, while it may be comfortable for a time, could well find us “napping” when the Bridegroom or Holy Spirit “shows up.” So the Burning Question for this time is one from me to you: What “new” thing is God doing where you are?
The Psalmist asked, “If the foundations are destroyed what can the righteous do?” (11:3) Resolution 14 passed at the recent Annual Conference strongly recommends against the use of Disciplinary procedures relating to same-sex marriage. It is imperative that faithful United Methodists of all opinions protest this action as schismatic. For decades we have been locked in debate over homosexual practice. This resolution is a decisive move away from dialog and relationship and towards separation.
The Discipline is the table around which United Methodists gather. Inasmuch as the Detroit Annual Conference aspires to step away from this table, it aspires to schism. This action breaks new ground and with it we enter into our final hour as a denomination.
United Methodism has an accessible and sensible governing polity through the General Conference and the Book of Discipline. It is critical to the health of our denomination that we deliberate with many voices but govern in one. The Detroit Annual Conference aspires to solutions outside United Methodist polity and this is schism.
Now is the time for faithful United Methodists of all opinions in our conference to raise their voices in protest. Clergy should not mistakenly believe they have permission to break their ordination vows. Churches should not wrongly assume they have license to separate themselves from our Discipline. Such things are already happening around the country. Dialog is being eclipsed by schism.
As I write this we are between sessions of our two Annual Conferences and I confess that I am enjoying the Sabbath time before we get to the second session. That being said, I have also enjoyed thinking about this month’s burning questions. The first question to hit my desk was “Why are Local Pastors allowed to wear stoles in Michigan? I find it very confusing. I know that stoles are for the Ordained only but I have seen many Local Pastor wearing them as I have been visiting here in Michigan.”
The second question came from someone who had attended the Annual Conference Session in Adrian and wanted to know what the difference was between a Local Pastor and a Commissioned Clergy Person, since neither is ordained.
About the stoles: We present stoles to ordained persons as a sign of their ordination. The stoles are different for Deacons and Elders and are a powerful non-verbal witness to their ministry among us. These clergy stoles are a tradition that dates back to the Bible.
In a recent article from the United Methodist Reporter (07/27/12), the Rev. Taylor Burton-Edwards, director of worship resources for the General Board of Discipleship, was quoted as saying, “Only ordained deacons and elders are to wear stoles. That is solid Christian tradition that dates back at least to the fourth century. The stoles recall the serving towel that Jesus used to wash the disciples’ feet, as well as the prophetic mantles worn by Elisha and Elijah.” He goes on the say that some district superintendents have allowed – or even encouraged – local pastors who aren’t ordained to wear the stole, but that goes against the denomination’s ordinal. The article quotes Mr. Burton-Edwards as saying, “The stole is not a sign of being a pastor, it’s a sign of ordination to a particular order, elder or deacon.”
All that being said, I understand why some Local Pastors have resisted being told that they could not wear stoles. While they are serving in the church where they are appointed, they are every bit as much a pastor as an elder would be, and if the clergy are going to robe and wear stoles, many Local Pastors feel that they should be able to as well. They are quick to point out that the Discipline does not prohibit them from wearing stoles. (One Local Pastor even reminded me, on some occasion, that the Book of Worship for our denomination speaks of stoles as a sign of pastoral authority.) And no one that I know wants to say or imply that Licensed Local Pastors are second class clergy, so the Bishop and Superintendents are reluctant to say that Local Pastors cannot wear stoles. But Local Pastors should be aware of the history behind the wearing of stoles and how some, particularly persons not of our United Methodist denomination, will view their wearing of ordination stoles with concern.
On a personal note, I never wore a stole until I was ordained, but I remember my concern for how my then Local Pastor daughter was being perceived by her congregation when she did not wear a stole, and thinking more than once that maybe it would be ok if she did chose to wear one. In the end, each Licensed Local Pastor will make up their own mind on whether or not they want to wear a stole, and remember that it is their faithfulness to their calling and their charge which, in the end, will be the mark by which they are measured.
We have been talking about Licensed Local Pastors. These are non-itinerant clergy who are licensed, credentialed and appointed for service as a pastor in a local charge or congregation. Their license and authorization is tied to their appointment, and without an appointment, they are lay persons once again. I have said it before, and I will say it again, that Licensed Local Pastors, who are under appointment, are clergy in the fullest sense of the word, and should be respected as such by laity and other clergy.
Commissioned clergy, both deacons and elders, are clergy who have completed a certain level of education and training, have been examined and recommended by the Board of Ordained Ministry and elected into a provisional relationship with the Annual Conference. In the case of Elders, they are expected to be itinerant pastors – meaning that they agree to go where sent and be under the authority of the bishop and others in supervision over them – in exchange for which they are guaranteed an appointment. Deacons and Elders, who are in the provisional status, are expected to be in a continuing relationship with the Board of Ordained Ministry who will evaluate their effectiveness until they are ready for Ordination or surrender their credentials with the church. Ordination is that moment when the Church says to persons who have been called and trained for this set-apart ministry and have served under supervision for at least two years, “we see the gifts and the fruit in you for life-long effective ministry and we send you forth with authority and responsibility as part of a covenant community of clergy.”
If I am a lay person in a local church and I am being ministered to by a clergy person – licensed or commissioned, ordained Elder or Deacon – I would not worry so much about which status or category of clergy they were. If I saw evidence of call, gifts, and fruit for ministry and if I experienced grace and mercy in their witness and in their lives, and if the larger church had that same experience of them, then that would be enough for me to acknowledge them as clergy and worthy of my respect.
Until next time… may God grant you Shalom!
