“1 But now thus says the Lord, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. 
 2  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not over-whelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. 
 3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.
18 Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.
19 Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”     Isaiah 43:1-3, 18-19

UNYC Director of Stewardship

Rev. Susan M. Ranous, Deacon of Stewardship 
As part of my new appointment as the Director of Stewardship for the Upper New York Conference, I have to have a secondary appointment at a local church since I am an Ordained Deacon. Your Staff Parish Relations Committee agreed that Baldwinsville should be my secondary appointment. As part of that appointment, I’ve agreed to write a newsletter article every couple of months. Here’s my first one!
I love fortune cookies. When I order Chinese food to go, I always order extra cookies. It’s worth an extra dollar to sit there, break them apart and munch away while reading “fortunes”. I know that fortune tellers, etc., go against the Methodist Book of Discipline, but I have to say the fortunes that I’ve received aren’t taken seriously, at least by me. And, recently, the fortunes aren’t really fortunes, but are more like proverbs.

Eureka! Book Club

We will be meeting in some form in September (probably by zoom) We will share “What I read during the Pandemic”, sharing your favorite reads during time of quarantine. Please bring your chair. If you want to share, we encourage you to: 1. Give a brief description of the book; 2. Why you read it/enjoyed it/shared it; 3. Two or three inspirational highlights to share. We will not share a meal, but it will be an opportunity for us to be together again.
