We Have a New Name…

Georgia Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure! We are now planning to expand our training events to reach more people in more positions within the United Methodist Connectional Structure.  We are very excited about the opportunities this will bring.  Read more inside this issue about our new name.

It’s a New Year…

Yes, we are now in the year 2018.  It’s a time to reflect on our blessings of 2017, but also a time to look forward to what is in store for us in 2018.  For many, it’s a new beginning.  New friends, a new job, a new start…  What will be new for you?  What will be new for GA PAUMCS?

Truth is, as we walk through this life, there will always be new things. As I think of new, I get excited.  Mainly because old things need to go and give a chance for new beginnings to take place.  Restoration and healing, comfort for those who are hurting.  Another day of forgiveness.

Hillsong has a song titled “All Things New” –  part of the song says…

The heavens have been opened, I know that I am chosen,

For I am alive in You, I am alive in You

God you are restoring, all things for Your glory

I am alive in You, I am alive in You.

You make all things new, You make all things new

Yesterday and forever, Your love never changing

this hope never fading, Hallelujah

In these words, I am reminded that God is a God of new beginnings.  A God of making things new for us everyday. A God of unchanging love and a hope that never fades away.  As we approach a new year, my prayer for GA PAUMCS is that we seek the new and exciting things.  That we move forward in ways that bring us new friends and new wisdom in the things needed to help us move forward in ministry.

We are chosen to be in ministry for the Kingdom of God.  Let’s look together for others we find on our paths, those we can share the hope and love of God.  Remember to share our new name with others, and let’s get going on this new adventure together.

Blessings to you my friends for a great year in 2018!

Jackie
