March on the Rooftop

“Are we there yet?”  I do not like car rides now, and I liked them less as a child.  “Are we there yet?” is a question I repeated time and again on long (and short) car trips. Reflecting on this, I imagine that God must feel like a patient parent, appeasing his kiddos in the…

February on the Rooftop

Jesus demonstrated kindness all the time, to all people. Obviously, he showed kindness to his friends and family, but that was just the tip of the iceberg with him. People with bad reputations, children, beggars, the sick and outcast were all shown love and kindness by Jesus, whether they could return it or not. This…

Crosstown Kids on a Mission

January on the Rooftop proved to be another exciting opportunity for kids to participate in a mission project as a group. As the holidays left us, so did the food on the HMUMC Food Pantry’s shelves.

December on the Rooftop

  Get wrapped up in others this Christmas season instead of all of the commercial hoopla!  This month we will focus on GENEROSITY – making someone’s day by giving something away.  God has been so generous to us, let’s not get wrapped up in ourselves and in our things but instead in the knowledge that…

November on the Rooftop – Gratitude

This year, I was encouraged by a friend to choose a word to inspire me all year.  I chose – ACKNOWLEDGE.  Proverbs 3:6 says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”  When focusing on acknowledging God in all things, it naturally follows to fall into a constant state of gratitude. …
