Lessons & Carols Returns
Christmas traditions have become even more meaningful to us as we've had our sense of normal shaken these past years. 2021 heralds the triumphant return of a Christmas event at FUMC that has taken on deep meaning for our community. Lessons and Carols returns! This year's edition, "Tidings of Comfort and Joy," is being led by Dr. John Orfe, along with Lara Reems. They join us as guests on The 116 to discuss the meaning of Lessons and Carols, and to preview this year's event.
The Blue Holiday Special
Are you facing a blue Christmas? Has some form of grief left you wondering how you will navigate the upcoming holidays? FUMC Director of Congregational Care, Kirsten Tharpe, joins us today to tackle the tough topic of how we can survive special days when someone special is missing. You'll find hope and encouragement, wrapped up in a realistic approach, as you listen to this special edition of The 116.
The Funcast: Sometimes You Just Gotta Laugh
We swim in an ocean of serious, life-changing topics on the 116. But sometimes, you just gotta laugh. So, we invited Pastor Tim Ozment and Dan Philips into the studio for a conversation about behind-the-scenes stories from years of ministry work that now bring smiles to our faces. You'll hear potluck horror-stories, things we were taught that turned out not to be true, and we'll even share stories of our most unforgettable people. It's what we call the Funcast. We hope it brings a smile to your day.
Latino 101
Is it possible to bring the Anglo and Latino church together as one? How do we Anglos better understand our Latino friends? What's it like to be Mexican in America these days? We'll explore all these fascinating questions with Pastor Adrian Garcia, Pastor of Hispanic Ministries at FUMC. You'll find this to be a powerful conversation that could help bridge the cultural gaps so that we can find ourselves united as the body of Christ.
