God Wants to Protect Us

by Narcie Jeter

Evy had a rough first day at school.  She only had one boy in her class from last year and for now (thankfully!) she doesn’t particularly care for boys!  Enoch , on the other hand, had 7 students from his old class.  I’m sure we’ll get a note soon about Enoch talking in class because […]

Choose Joy

by Narcie Jeter

I shared this reflection at Somerby yesterday.  When we’re on the way back to school, when life gives us lemons and we have to make lemonade, when we have the choice whether to choose to make a bad situation worse or choose forgiveness, grace and joy, these words, that are contained in scriptures and songs […]

We’re a People of HOPE

I do a worship service/devotion at Somerby once a month and we talked about mothers yesterday. I chose the below scriptures because they are mother figures of God and Jesus. When I was writing my ordination papers I hadn’t included these female images of God and the reader wrote in the margins to include them, […]

I am at a training for Study Leaders for the UMW’s MissionU with my Dad. We’re co-study leaders at the MissionU conference July 27-29 on Living as a Covenant Community at Spartanburg Methodist College.
