Greetings in the Name of Christ,

One of the greatest blessings I have at this
church is listening to new members tell the
Session why they want to join this church
family. So often I hear, “this is such a wel-
coming church,” “we felt right at home, eve-
ryone is so welcoming and friendly.” As a pas-
tor these are great words to hear! I am thank-
ful this church family puts so much emphasis
on welcoming all of God’s people and truly
living out the “Everyone Welcome” banner
that sits at our entrance.

Helping people feel welcome has actually be-
come part of the theology of this church. We
are living out a hospitality theology when we
truly welcome all of God’s children into our
worship, activities, studies and to the Table.
By providing a space of welcome we provide
a witness to the love and grace of Jesus the

The open arms of welcome shouldn’t stop at
the front door with a handshake and a smile,
it shouldn’t stop with short conversations in
the pews, and it shouldn’t stop at the Com-
munion Table where Christ welcomes us all
to experience and remember His grace. This
is why we serve gluten free bread for com-
munion, so all may feel welcomed. I have had
several people tell me that the gluten free
communion bread doesn’t taste good and
that we should switch back to regular bread. I
respond by saying that the Table is not the
place to exclude people, or to make them feel
left out. There are several people in our con-
gregation that are gluten sensitive, and there
may even be some gluten sensitive first time
believers that have come to understand
Christ’s love for them and they want to partake in
the Eucharist. We must help those with this al-
lergy feel welcomed too.

The worship ministry continues to work on find-
ing gluten free bread that is tastier and less crum-
bly, but until we find the perfect mix I urge you to
understand this is another way we welcome all
people to this church family, and to the arms of



FKPC Financial Status as of June 30,2014

Our Total Offerings for June exceeded Budget by $296.17. This halted our negative trend at 2 months. For the
year we are still under budget by $5,878 (3.96%). June had 5 Sundays while July has 4. So I urge you all to stay
on course with your Commitment.

Our expenses are $11,444 under budget. A good thing indeed! However, as has been the case all year, certain
bills for June will be paid in July. Also, our Ministries maintain a cost level below their budgeted allowances.

June is the midway point for 2014. If our trend for offerings continues, we will come in at approximately $12,000
below our expected estimates. Shortly, you will be receiving a midyear statement regarding your individual Com-
mitment. Read these carefully and if you are behind, please, if you are able, get caught up.

FKPC is the most wonderful, generous, caring congregation. It is a privilege being a part of this congregation.
Give this financial data some prayerful consideration. I know we will get back on track.

Women’s Retreat

Calling all women of Fort King. It is time again to start planning for our annual Women’s Retreat. Our dates for
this year at Montgomery Conference are October 24-26, 2014. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend this
great weekend. Becca Gillespie will be our spiritual leader again this year, bringing us spiritual refreshment and fun
filled experiences. The theme for this year’s Retreat is P.O.W.E.R (Prayer, Others, Word of God, Equipped and
Respond). The cost for the entire weekend is $130 for an Inn Room or $110.00 for a cabin. Other options (ie.,

information about our retreat, Bernice will be available August 10th in the Session Room following worship to an-
swer any questions you may have. Reservations and deposits will be accepted at that meeting or any time by call-
ing Bernice at 694-6798.
Adult Class

The Adult Discipleship class is continuing its informal discussions of “The
God Squad” column which appears every Saturday in the Ocala Star-Banner.
The column originated as a joint effort with Monsignor Thomas Hartman and
Rabbi Marc Gellman. However, when Monsignor Hartman was stricken with
Parkinson’s, Rabbi Gellman continued as its author. Rabbi Gellman has a
deep appreciation for the Christian faith and the columns are written from an
ecumenical perspective.

Rabbi Gellman’s book, with Monsignor Hartman, “Where Does God Live?” was awarded The Christopher
Award, and they also published, “Lost and Found: A Child’s Guide to Overcoming Grief and Loss,” and
“How Do You Spell God?” To give you an idea of Rabbi Gellman’s humor, he has also published “Always
Wear Clean Underwear (And Other Ways Your Parents Tell You They Love You).”
Join us in the Session Room at 9:00 a.m. every Sunday morning (through August 31) for a lively and informa-
tive discussion. Copies of the column to be discussed that day are available as you enter the Session Room.

Session Notes
July 22, 2014

• The Session interviewed and examined Rosemary and Peter Messmore, who wished to join the church. Their
questions of the Session were duly answered and the Session, on motion, approved their addition to the rolls
as active members. . . . They were then warmly greeted. They come by letter of transfer from Countryside Presby-
terian Church (PCUSA), Ocala.

• The 2014 Audit Committee reported on their audit of the church’s financials for 2012 and 2013 by letter from
the committee. There were no discrepancies found. The Session voted to receive their report.

• By motion, August 24, 2014, immediately following worship service was set for the called Congregational
Meeting. The purpose of the called meeting is to elect the members of the Nominating Ministry. The Nomi-
nating Ministry recommends the new class of Elders.

• The Session voted to allow a networking group, BNI Strategies, to use the Fellowship Hall on Thursdays at
7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at a donation of $350 per month. They will be asked to provide a certificate of insur-
ance. The Session approved this use, if the way be clear (insurance).

• The Rev., Dr. Glenn Dixon will preach on August 3rd. The Worship Ministry is reviewing the summer wor-
ship time of 10:00 a.m. and will seek input from congregants on the possibility of making it year- round. The
new PCUSA hymnal “Glory to God (2013)” is being reviewed.

Something To Think About
My Ego and Love
A Self-Reflection and A Soliloquy
Matthew 5:44ff//Luke 6:35 Matthew 5:44ff//Luke 6:35 Matthew 5:44ff//Luke 6:35 Matthew 5:44ff//Luke 6:35

“ ““ “And I say to you: “love continuously your enemies.” And I say to you: “love continuously your enemies.” And I say to you: “love continuously your enemies.” And I say to you: “love continuously your enemies.” Really? Really? Really? Really?
am the center of my universe;
- I live for my self; self; self; self;
- I define and decide the meaning of my my my my world and my my my my importance in the world outside of me and
other people who are not in my my my my world;
- I not only create the box box box box of my I/Ego,
- I create my self self self self and determine what is important to me;
- I insist that relations with other people serve to fulfill the meaning of my life, that “work”/jobs I
do enable me, my I, to “thrive” and benefit, not only to enlarge the scope of my Ego, but to reinforce
the structure of my Ego – “I am right” – so I can be in control.
- I can never be “wrong,” unless my box of Ego can be reinforced, made more secure and impene-
trable, unless there is an actual potential for self-improvement on my terms, not someone else’s.
- And because I am “right” about how I live my life, and because my view of me works works works works for me, I
insist that
* everyone cow-tow to me and my opinions – because I am “right”; and,
* I impose my self on others to think and act in the same way I do.

And if you all would do this, the world, especially my “world,” would be a happier place for all of us. Just
think: Be like me, and there’d be no conflict – we’d all be friends - … and totally bored!

For Leviticus 19:18 to say: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (because) “I am the Lord!” is an
absolute absurdity: I am supposed to love someone else in the same way that I love myself? Because this is a
commandment from God? Really?

Those who subject themselves to ME (the big “I am”), who cater to my way of thinking, my way of do-
ing, I will consider “my friends” – they can serve to enlarge my Ego/I, to benefit me, to support me, when I
stumble or, more likely, am caused to stumble by someone else.

If I am forced If I am forced If I am forced If I am forced to cooperate with others for a purpose or a goal that is supposedly greater than all of us,
my question is: What am I going to get out of it? What’s in it for me? What am I going to get out of it? What’s in it for me? What am I going to get out of it? What’s in it for me? What am I going to get out of it? What’s in it for me? There’d better be something in it for me for me for me for me,
otherwise, I’m not going to cooperate. This is called enlightened self enlightened self enlightened self enlightened self- -- -interest. interest. interest. interest.

And if I I I I decide to subject myself, my “I,” to another Ego, then there had better be a good pay-off for not
being my-self self self self, for reflecting someone else’s big “I”. “To love my neighbor as I love myself”? To support, care for
the big-I of someone else to the same degree that I support, care for, my own big-I? Um, that’s asking a lot, so
give me some rules and regulations, some guidelines (“tell me how”), by which I can say that I “love my
neighbor,” and then tell me that “God” approves of those guidelines and of me!

WORSHIP (continued)
And then there’s Jesus’ “Love your enemies!” Someone who is totally against my way of thinking, speak-
ing, feeling, acting, hoping; someone who insists that it’s his/her way or the highway, who insists that my Ego-
universe is totally irrelevant and meaningless; someone who, quite frankly, doesn’t give a hoot about me as a per-
son, my enemy enemy enemy enemy, I am supposed to love continuously love continuously love continuously love continuously? ?? ? Was Jesus serious?

Or, is this just another supposed “commandment of the Lord,” to be modified (as Paul did in I Corin-
thians 7) by a “law” that softens the blow and makes it “seem like” I’m doing the “commandment,” when all I’m
doing is a “ritual performance” that doesn’t get to the heart of things at all?
And if I were to put this soliloquy out in public, the public would know the truth about me, and I’d have
nowhere to hide my bloated Ego.

Hear Shakespeare’s Macbeth Macbeth Macbeth Macbeth Act V, Scene V lines 23ff:
“Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow,
A poor player,
That struts and frets his hour
upon the stage
and then is heard no more.
It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing.”

A “wasted life?” As the lady says, “Y’betcha!”

What Leviticus 19:18 and Jesus of Nazareth’s “continuously love your enemies” offer is a different starting
point for our own self-estimation and our relations with other Ego-imprisoned people. Results are not guaran-
teed or under our control, because this is the “seed growing secretly” (Mark 4:26ff).

If we understand the world and life as the other person understands it, this will mean
a. the end of the tyranny tyranny tyranny tyranny of my Ego on myself, the end of “I did it my way;”
b. the end of the tyranny tyranny tyranny tyranny of my Ego on to others, the liberation liberation liberation liberation of the other person from my Ego-
control; and,
c. the beginning of a possibility of new communication communication communication communication with the other other other other person and hopefully between
us, what M. Buber called I II I- -- -thou. thou. thou. thou.

Could it be that this is precisely how we participate in the “saving” of human life and community? Jesus of Naz- Jesus of Naz- Jesus of Naz- Jesus of Naz-
areth thought so! areth thought so! areth thought so! areth thought so!

Something to think about…and do! Something to think about…and do! Something to think about…and do! Something to think about…and do!



WORSHIP (continued)

Recently one Sunday morning, I met Bob Schlegel in the hallway and he asked me if I had seen the new Pres-
byterian hymnal “Glory to God.” I replied, Andy had brought me a copy from the General Assembly meet-
ing. Bob mentioned it had a lot of new music and I agreed. Then he said “It even has ‘Leaning on the Ever-
lasting Arms’.” I assume that this is one of Bob’s favorites since I heard him mention before about the hymn
not being in our present hymnal. I’m with him. It’s a great hymn that expresses a strong message of hope,
confidence, peace and comfort.

It took teamwork to write this hymn. Anthony Showalter wrote the chorus. Sam Duncan wrote the music,
and Elisha Hoffman wrote the verses. Talk about teamwork! Here’s how it all came about.

In 1887, Anthony J. Showalter was in Hartselle, Alabama, leading a singing school in a church. Afterwards
he gathered up his hymnbooks and returned to his boardinghouse room. Two letters had come and the young
men from South Carolina, who wrote were heartbroken, each having lost his wife. He wrote back to the two
men and he looked for a verse to use to end his replies, and found Deuteronomy 33:27:

“The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms ….” “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms ….” “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms ….” “The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms ….”

He thought about the words of that verse and the chorus of “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” came to
mind. He finished his letters and then wrote to Elisha Hoffman, telling him he had the chorus, but did not
have any verses. Pastor Hoffman sent back the verses and Professor Showalter wrote the music. Elisha Hoff-
man published the hymn in 1887 in the Glad Evangel for Revival, Camp and Evangelistic Meeting Hymnal.
The hymn has appeared in over 1000 hymn books and translated in just about every language.

The actual uncredited composer of the music was Sam E. Duncan, who was a student at Bridgewater College,
near Harrisonburg, Virginia, under Professor of Music, Anthony Showalter. Sam was given an assignment in
class to write music to the poem. That evening the teenager wrote the tune. Anthony Showalter was Sam's
uncle, and the piece along with several others was later published under the name of the professor, and men-
tion of the students who did the composing was not made. A bronze plaque was made commemorating his
composition of the music of the hymn in the Oak Hill Brethren Church, of which he was a charter member
in 1900.

When I think about this hymn, I think about the how it came about. Teamwork! Remember, the year is
1887. There was no email, Facebook, Skype or any other technologies of communication we enjoy today. It
must have taken weeks for this collaboration to come to fruition. I believe that the “Everlasting Arms” had a
hand in its composition. The “Team” was being led by God Almighty Himself. Now that’s a dream team.

Verse 1 addresses the joy of fellowship and the peace that is ours. It is a wonderful blessing to have a fellow-
ship with our Maker. It is a soothing peace to know we are safe in God’s “Everlasting Arms.” I can tell you
I’ve depended on those arms many times in my life and those arms have always been there.

Verse 2 talks about the sweet pilgrim walk and the bright path that lies ahead day to day. Many times, we
wonder what lies ahead for us. Will I enjoy good health? Will I be economically stable in my later years?
Will I have to face overwhelming sorrow? I sometimes ponder these things and I find great joy in knowing
that I can lean on those “everlasting arms.”

WORSHIP (continued)
Verse 3 says we have nothing to fear, nothing to dread. Blessed peace is ours with our Lord so near. Wow!
What a confidence builder! It is tremendously reassuring that I can be at peace because those “everlasting arms”
are wrapped around me forever.

But, you know, when I sing or play this hymn, I think about our marvelous team right here at Fort King. God is
the captain and we are the team. We are the extension of those “everlasting arms!”

I have joy in our fellowship. I have peace knowing my teammates are ready to reach out in prayer and concern.
I have a sweet walk through my life because you are walking right beside me. How bright is my path because of
your overflowing love. What confidence I have because we can see thru each other’s faults and lift up each
other. Praise God! Go team! Go team! Go team! Go team!

The chorus might say it all:

“Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, I’m Leaning on the everlasting arms.” “Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, I’m Leaning on the everlasting arms.” “Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, I’m Leaning on the everlasting arms.” “Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms; Leaning, leaning, I’m Leaning on the everlasting arms.”

Fort King, you are a great team. I’m glad I am a part of it. I’m blessed to
know that we all are “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” God’s, yours, and mine.

With a song in my heart,
