Nancy’s Send-off

 

It is hard to believe that May is almost gone and June is just around the corner.  It is also time for Annual Conference which means that our time with Nancy is coming to an end. 
 
The SPRC is planning a celebration of her time here at Buda UMC for Sunday, June 10.  However, you don’t need to wait until then to let her know how much you appreciate her spiritual leadership, pastoral care, friendship, love and/or any other gift she has shared with you.  Cards can be sent now or brought to the celebration.  We are planning to give Nancy and Casey gifts from the congregation, but we would also like to give you the opportunity to contribute to a love offering if you would like.  Your gifts can be sent to the church office anytime between now and June 10.  The SPRC will be providing brisket for the luncheon that will follow worship on June 10.  We would like to ask the congregation to provide side dishes and desserts.
 
Transitions are difficult and bring mixed emotions.  We are sad to say good-by but we also look forward with anticipation to what God is bringing our way.  John Wright, district superintendent,  told us to remember that we are not being disloyal to Nancy when we look forward to what is to come and we are not being disloyal or negative toward Lisa when we have feelings of sadness or loss over the departure of Nancy as our pastor.  We need to remember and celebrate all of our memories of the past seven years.  We need to express our love and appreciation for her love, care and service for and to our community.

Spirituality on Screen

“Spirituality on Screen” facilitated by Wesley Nurse Pamela Castles

Films play an important role in our culture. The cinema is the place where many of us experience a world beyond ourselves. We become familiar with ethical, social, and personal struggles that are different from our everyday lives. Films help to broaden our understanding of our culture, our world, and our faith.Wednesdays April 11 – May 30 (except for May 9) from 1-3:30pm in the Fellowship Hall, Buda UMC will offer a series entitled: Spirituality on Screen(SOS), an examination of movies that challenge, entertain, and console us while illuminating our faith. In this series we will be utilizing several books:

“God in the Movies” by Catherine Barsotti
“Movies that Matter” by Richard Leonard, SJ
“Faith and Film” by Edward N. McNulty

Each week for 7 weeks the title of the video will be announced in the newsletter. An email as a reminder with the name of the week’s film will also be sent to participants. Each will view the film in its entirety at home (options for viewing the assigned films will be discussed at our first meeting). At our Wednesday gathering we will view selected clips and engage in theological discussion. Each session will contain scriptural texts to enhance discussion in association with individual movie interpretations. There is no need to purchase the books.Please join us! We will provide the popcorn, Junior Mints and beverages!

Viewing Schedule:

We will be viewing the film from 1-3pm in the Fellowship Hall. After the film, from 3-3:30, we will discuss the film as a group. Folks have two options: 1) join us to view the film and stay for discussion or 2) view the film at home and join us at 3 for discussion. Here are the dates and films we will be watching:
