JUNE 2012Sunshine Herald
Druid Hills UnitedMethodist Church
From the Pastor: Rev. Daryl W. Allen
Sunshine Herald
A Monthly Publication of Druid Hills United Methodist Church
Serving Christ by Learning, Leading and Loving 
Greetings Brothers and Sisters!I have always looked forward to this time of year. I guess it is because I have alwaysbeen tied to an academic calendar. Either I was in school, Debbie was in school, ornow we have two boys in school. Because of that paradigm, this time of year has al-ways been about celebrations. From the, "Whew...glad that semester is over!" to thecelebratory cheer of, "I did it!" when a graduation occurred. It is also the time of yearwhen summer arrives and vacations happen, family reunions take place, and life seemsto be savored just a little bit more. It seems the feeling of hope and anticipation seem tohang a bit thicker in the air this time of year as well.This year, as a congregation, we have several reasons to celebrate as well. First, is thegrand opportunity we have to be a trainingground for our summer intern, RobertBledsoe. This year The Florida Conferencebegan its Intern Program. It is designed togive people entering the candidacy programa chance to experience ministry in a live set-ting. I know how gracious you were with mewhen I arrived almost three years ago, so Iam confident Robert will have a great timewith us this summer. His internship beginsMay 20
, and he will worship with us July8
-August 5
. You will see him at variousevents during the week so please welcomehim as you have the opportunity. To give youa bit of information about our intern, Robertis from Ocala and will begin his junior year at Florida Southern this fall. He will splittime between our church and Belleview during his internship. So, please join me inwelcoming Robert and showing him how great ministry can be.Another reason we have to celebrate is the return of the YMCA Day Camp. Last yearwe began this partnership and are excited for its return. This day camp helps provide astructured atmosphere for children based on the core values of honesty, caring, respect,responsibility, and faith. This is a great honor to be the hosting site and have a part inteaching these young people the importance of those core values. The Marion CountyYMCA does a great job at reaching out to those families that cannot afford a camp likethis by providing scholarships so as many children as possible can have a safe place tohave fun, learn solid core values and have the seeds of faith planted in a wonderful at-mosphere. In conjunction with this, we will also be the host site for the hot food pro-gram run by the county. This means that any child in Marion County will be able tocome in and receive a free, hot, breakfast and lunch. We will have a hand in makingsure the children of this county do not go hungry during the summer. Therefore, therewill be more than a hundred children here everyday Monday through Friday, from June11
through August 17
