GRIMES UMC                 Many of us have allowed ourselves to become part of
                      a society that is very dependant upon modern technology
8:30 am               to keep us connected. I resisted being part of this mad-
Early Morning         ness for as long as I could. Even though there were times
Worship               I could have used one, I did not even own a cell phone
                      until 2002. In addition to keeping in touch through phone

                      Most correspondence from our Dothan District Office
11:00 am              comes from email messages. I am expected to read all

5:00 pm               tend to be forgetful, so a couple of years ago, I used gift money to purchase a
Choir Practice        Palm Pilot. This little gadget had capabilities as a calculator, an address book, a
(1st & 3rd Sundays)   place to store hand-written or typed texts, and most importantly, a schedule man-
                      ager. When I was faithful to put my appointments into this little gizmo, it helped
6:00 pm               me to stay current with my obligations. I now have a fancy cell phone that does
                      all this for me so I don’t have to carry a phone and a Palm Pilot. I have learned to

                      appreciate all these modern “helps” that God makes available for me because,

HOLY GROUND
                          Before I came to Grimes, I had a different phone with a different provider. We
6:30 pm               lived in a dead zone where my cell phone usually did not work in my home or of-
                      fice, only outside or in my truck. Similarly, when we moved into the parsonage at
Wednesday Night
                      Napier Field, we experienced some of the same lack of service and reception. I
Fellowship            recall one time when we had no reception and the phone was reading “No Ser-
                      vice” in the window. After calling the phone company I discovered it wasn’t’ a
                      problem with my phone but with the cell towers in my area and how the weather
                      had affected their receptivity. Although we are required to purchase a phone and
                      pay monthly fees, our phone service provider has to keep those towers function-
                      ing for me to connect with the main source. What a funny coincidence that our
                      relationship with God has similar characteristics.
