sacraments dramatize. Preaching is the heralded word of God, whereas the sacraments constitute the visible word of God.” (A Wesleyan Holiness Theology, 493). Throughout history different names have been used to describe the sacrament: – The Lord’s Supper reminds us that Jesus Christ is the host and that we participate at Christ’s invitation. This title suggests the eating of a meal, sometimes called the Holy Meal, and makes us think of the meals that Jesus ate with various people both before his death and after his resurrection. – Holy Communion invites us to focus on the self-giving of the Holy God, which makes the sacrament an occasion of grace, and on the holiness of our communion with God and one another. – Eucharist, from the Greek word for “thanksgiving,” reminds us that the sacrament is thanksgiving to God for the gifts of creation and salvation. – Mass, used by the Roman Catholic Church, derives from the Latin word mission, literally “sending forth,” and indicates that this celebration brings the worship service to a close by sending forth the congregation with God’s blessing to love as God’s people in the world. – The Divine Liturgy is a name used mostly by churches in the tradition of Eastern Orthodoxy. All these names refer to the same practice: the eating and drinking of consecrated bread and wine in the worshiping community. (This Holy Mystery, 2-3). Which names are you familiar with? Does one name have a more significant meaning for you? This is part one of a three part newsletter series. I look forward to sharing more on the sacrament next month. I’m so blessed to be serving with you at Tyler Street! Blessings, Ed
Tyler Street’s digital ministries moving forward
newsletter, the blog, and the podcast are now fully integrated to the website. That means when you visit those sections of our website, the navigation bar on the top will remain. Our blog now includes a special feature which makes reading the Bible on-line easy and enjoyable. Simply check out the Tyler Street Almanac posts which are published every Monday. There you will find daily Bible readings for the week. In addition to changes on the church website, we are in the midst of improving the sound quality of our sermon podcasts. Here in the next few weeks, we will be posting crisp, clean, cd-quality digital recordings of every Sunday’s message- no more hisses and pops of the old audio cassette technology we’ve used in the past. Our goal is to create a radio broadcast quality program you can download into an mp3 player or burn to a cd so you can share it with friends. There are more new features in the works, and we are always open to suggestions, feedback, and even tech-savvy volunteers who want to help our digital ministry efforts!

“The story is told of a little girl whose parents had taken her forward to receive Holy Communion. Disappointed with the small piece of bread she was given to dip in the cup, the child cried loudly, ‘I want more.’ (This Holy Mystery: A United Methodist Understanding of Holy Communion, 1) “I want more” expresses my own feelings about Holy Communion. Over the past few years I have come to desire a richer understanding of the sacrament. I want to know more and experience more about this sacred meal. As I write this article, I’m thinking about this coming Sunday’s worship on September 5. In particular I’m thinking about Tyler Street’s sanctuary. The stained glass, magnificent dome, high ceiling, dark wood and pipe organ are strikingly beautiful. Yet my attention is really toward its design of the chancel area. Two things stand out for me: The pulpit and the communion rail. The center pulpit clearly declares the importance of the preached Word. At the same time, our communion rail has a very strong declarative presence, too. It proclaims the importance of Christ’s body and blood. Tyler Street believes as the Church has believed through the centuries: God speaks to us both through the sermon and the sacrament. Kenneth Grider says, “The sacraments are like poetry, whereas preaching is similar to prose….What preaching declares, the

Youth Mission Trip 2010 – an exercise in humility
I won’t lie. We teenagers become stuck up. Especially as a senior in high school, I tend to take a “been there, done that approach.” This year’s Missions Trip brought me down to earth and taught me that I’m not the best yard worker. Need to learn how to work an edger? Don’t ask me. Need someone to drive a four wheeler? I can’t drive a stick shift. This year, our youth group traveled to Mabank, Texas and helped a woman who could no longer handle the arduous yard work and was literally losing her house to the wilderness. Alex Pinkerton pulled weeds, Vanessa Ray and Jacob Bruner painted her deck and the rest of us mowed, edged, moved brush and trimmed trees. Mrs. Nash has a combination of fibromyalgia and the beginning stages of lupus which make any work outside difficult. Despite the troubling circumstances, she brightened each of our days with the offer of air conditioning and popsicles. Her brightness and the continual patience and hard work of Pepa, Mattie Farrer’s grandpa, lightened our moods and taught us all a lesson in hard work and country living. This year’s Missions Trip almost wasn’t a reality as plan after plan fell through. Many of us couldn’t shake the feeling of futility in our work and that this trip wouldn’t be a
Blest Be the Tie that Binds
ANNIVERSARY Class opened on Aug. 1 by singing “Rock of Ages’ led by Nina, followed by prayer given by Buddy Holley. We sang happy birthday to Chastine. A beautiful devotion was given by Kathryn Brooks accompanied by Mary Anne Montgomery. Estelle Holley brought a great lesson on “Angels--where Angels Walk.” Refreshments brought by Estelle and Buddy Holley. Class opened on Aug. 7 by singing “Rock of Ages,” followed by Chastine Wieting giving the prayer. Happy birthday to John Skinner. Carla Boss brought our devotion on prayer and how we feel when we don’t think our prayer has been answered. Thank you Carla. Richard Phillips brought our lesson on “Investing in Our Relationships.” It was very much like “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Class opened on Aug. 15 by singing “Tell Me the Story of Jesus” led by Nina. Prayer given by Maxine Peterson. Pat Whiteley made an announcement about the course “Experiencing God” for 13 weeks. Nina Worthy brought our devotion. Thank you. Mary Margaret Roberson’s lesson was about the Spafford Family. The hymn “It Is Well with My Soul” is known today from this family. Great lesson. Maxine Peterson brought our refreshments. Class opened on Aug. 22 by singing “The Church’s One Foundation” led by Nina Wakefield. Prayer by Dorothy West. Mary Kathryn Skinner sang a beautiful devotional hymn, “Amazing Grace.” Thank you so much. Happy birthday to Nina. Patsy Thompson brought our lesson on “The Reason for Everything.” Thank you. Refreshments brought by Dorothy West. Class opened on Aug. 29 by singing “Blessed Assurance, Jesus Is Mine.” Cindy Felts gave the prayer. Cindy sang a beautiful devotional hymn. Buddy Holley brought our lesson on “He Has the Whole World in His Hands.” Great lesson. Carol Bilz brought refreshments. CHALLENGE On August 8, Pat Whiteley shared with us from chapter 3 of Revelation about the letters to the churches. On the outside, the churches looked alive, but in reality they were dead. These letters are applicable to us in the church today. The letters report on the problems in the churches along with the good things they are doing. In each case, Jesus gives a wakeup call. We need to listen and repent. There is still work for us to do—we need to overcome. God is our advocate and will reward us for our perseverance in doing His work. On August 15, Jere Thompson presented the second half of his lesson on the judgment seat of God. The time will come when each of us will stand before God and give an account of our life here on earth—our motives as well as our deeds. As Christians, this judgment does not affect our salvation, but it will make a difference in the rewards we receive. We are each given different abilities and capabilities. We will be judged on how we use the opportunities and gifts God gives to us. We will be rewarded for our faithful service (our works that are pleasing and acceptable to Him), for telling others the Good News, and for our surrender to the control of the Holy Spirit. We do not earn these rewards. The crowns that we will receive are given only by God’s grace and mercy. Jim Gettman taught our class on August 22 about hearing and living the truth of God. Jesus said “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” (Matt. 10:34) The scribes and Pharisees of Jesus’ time did not understand Him. They were steeped in tradition and, when Jesus challenged their ways, they did not want to hear the truth. They were seeking food which perishes, but not the food that endures to everlasting life. (John 6:26-27) As Christians, we need to be bold and stand on God’s truth regardless of the consequences. Knowing our mission will help us to stay focused. COVENANT August 8, many thanks to Jere Thompson for his lesson this morning on being ready for “the judgment seat of Christ.” We are called to relinquish control of our lives, to completely surrender to God. That complete surrender will be used to the place of holiness where God wants us to be. Thanks to Jim Bayless for his lesson today, Aug. 15, which introduced his topic for next week — dealing with conflict. Do you avoid conflict at all costs? Or do you tend to be aggressive in dealing with conflict? Neither is the correct approach. Jim will lead us in exploring what scripture says on this subject. We said good-bye to Micah, who leaves for his great northern adventure at the University of Michigan this week. Happy belated 60th birthday to Ed Logan. Happy September birthday to Mike and Melissa Vrabel. See you next week! Jim Bayless continued the teaching series on forgiveness. It is commanded by Jesus. Our worship is hindered by unforgiveness. Forgiveness is not only a priority, it is urgent. He referenced the book Amish Grace: How Forgiveness Transcended Tragedy, and Matt 5:23-24, 43-45, Mark 11:25, Hosea 6:6, and Matthew 9:13 “I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” Jesus’ clear teaching is that we must not put off forgiveness unless we want to halt our relationship with God. Thank you, Jim, for a very timely message. Congratulations to Robert Brooks who has a new grandson, Sebastian. KOINONOI We have had a noteworthy summer with the Egger wedding in July and our class party the night of the churchwide Back to School bash. We have continued to pray for all our members who are shut in or caregivers as their times can be tough. We are happy to welcome others to listen to Wilson Marime Sept. 12th in Yeats during Sunday School. We have enjoyed all of our teachers of the last few month. TWO BY TWO Jere Thompson taught another good less on Aug. 1. Thank you, Jere, for your faithfulness and for blessing us. We say good-bye to one of our star members, Will Philcox. He served this church and the Two by Two Class well. He has been on the Church Council, our president and vice president and has been on many committees. We grieve with Blanche and the family. Keep them in your prayers. It was good to see Gail King and many former members of our class at Will’s service. Mary Lee Miller gave a beautiful prayer lifting up the Philcox family. On Aug. 8, Jim Gettman taught a lesson about Christ rebuking his disciples. He referred to John 6:26 and Matt. 26. No one likes confrontations. But when we encounter evil we must confront it. Remember this: “telling the truth doesn’t guarantee victory.” Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” Jim shared a most interesting story with us. He had attended a business seminar. One of the main speakers was from China where he had been an economic leader. China sent him a few years ago to the US to find out why our economic system is so successful. He said after much observation and studying our methods, he said he thought it was because of Christianity in our country. Well, he became a Christian! Isn’t that just remarkable? On Aug. 8, Lucy Lindholm gave a report about her mission to Peru. She said she knew the class was praying for her and the workers because things just kept falling into place. I know the Lord is saying, “well done thy good and faithful servant.” Translating the scriptures into their native language has been a monumental job. Hours and hours, day and months, years even years went into this work. Praise the Lord for Lucy and her team. Don Lindholm gave our lesson on Aug. 15. He shared with us from Psalm 143. Good lesson, Don. We welcomed our visitor, Mary, www.tsumc.org whom Shirley Jackson brought. On Aug. 22, Pat Whiteley taught from Exodus 2 and 3. Moses said he couldn’t do what the Lord was calling him to do. But he did! And what a leader he was. When the Lord calls on you, step out. JoAnn Schroeder’s lesson on Aug. 29 was about her visit to Greece and Ephesus. She saw where Mary lived the last days of her life and she saw places where Paul preached--Acts 18-19. WEDDING RING Aug. 1, thanks Keum Hwang, our music director, for playing the piano while we sang “Take Time to be Holy” and “Stand Up For Jesus.” Herby had a beautiful devotion from John 10 1-18. Frank gave the prayer. Ace’s lesson was from Acts 15. Evelyn reported that Mary Lu was still in treatment, that her sister was visiting. Ed is doing somewhat better. Emerson is in the hospital and Maurine’s sister has been in the hospital. Aug. 8, class opened with Keum Hwang at the piano and we sang “Blessed Assurance” followed by “America the Beautiful.” R.E. and Frank presided. Evelyn gave her report as follows: Milligan and Marcelle are doing well with the help of son Scott and his wife, Kathy. Mary Lu is still at Williamsburg for chemo treatments. Maurine’s sister is now receiving chemo treatments and needs our prayers. Good news is Margie got her driver’s license and was back in class today. Frank then gave our morning prayer. R.E. gave a cute devotion, “Through a child’s eyes.” Blessing we receive the way a child “sees” them. Then Estelle Holley brought another “Angel Series” with the title “Where Angels Walk.” We all have angels walking with us to save us from harm. She closed reading Isaiah 41:10. Also Mary Etta celebrated her 90th birthday Aug. 7th. Aug. 15, class opened with Ed Logan at the piano; we surprised him by making him play “Happy Birthday” and we sang to Him! (It was 8-14). Then, as he played we sang “When the Roll Is Called Up Yonder” and “America the Beautiful.” Evelyn’s report on Mary Lu is she is now in a wheel chair but still taking chemo. The Austin Connells: Emerson is doing much better but Eleanor is to have knee surgery soon. R.E. gave our morning prayer and followed with reminders of August dates concerning WWII. (We remember and will never forget.) Herby then gave a wonderful devotion “Prayers and People.” Action in heaven begins with prayers on earth. Frank then brought his great lesson speaking of Naomi and Ruth and the wonderful things that they were responsible for. Aug. 22, class opened with singing Happy Birthday to Mary Etta celebrating her 90th! Then we started class with singing “O Little Town of Bethlehem” (to fit in with our slide presentation) followed by “America the Beautiful.” Evelyn then gave her report. Mary Lu is still at Williamsburg taking chemo. Keep both in your prayers. Frank then had our prayer. Mary Etta brought a devotion titled “Growing Old.” Yes, we are! Joe then brought his slide presentation on “Churches of the World.” Churches we were blessed to be able to see many years ago. We were glad to have Marie Bourell visiting from Austin. Aug. 29, class opened with Ed Logan at the piano and we sang “He Lives” followed with “America the Beautiful.” Evelyn’s report was Maureen’s sister, Doris Phillips, died 8-28 and Mary Lu is still at Williamsburg. Our beloved Martha Ann Thomas died and her service at church was 8-28. Our sympathy to all. Evelyn’s good news is her grandson has arrived home from Iran! Frank gave our prayer. We were blessed to have Aaron and Megan Fenderson in class to tell us about their missionary calling to go to the Univ. of Ark. They are with Campus Crusade for Christ. Megan has been to Thailand twice to tell them of Christ. We wish them well. September, 2010
success, but our youth director, Jon Farrer, shared a passage from Corinthians. “Therefore, my dear brother, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the
Lord is not in vain.” – Corinthians 15:58 I know that we are not always God’s most willing helpers, or his most able, but when we give ourselves over fully and simply let him show us what to do, every act will bear fruit. – Andrew Bennett
Sage Advice: From someone who has been there, done that!
By Tom Young Mary’s refrigerator was often a source of inspiration for jump-starting our days. This magnetic message that she once posted there said a lot: “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!” That is not a complex idea. In fact, it might be too simple for some: “Life is too tough to be solved with maxims,” they would say. Like when you are…losing a loved one, especially a spouse, through illness or accident, confronting retirement long before you are ready for it, suffering loss of your job or a set-back in your business, watching helplessly as a child’s life ebbs away, facing the prospect of living with an incurable disease. I recently finished reading a book written by a black minister who was once an NFL football player. He had everything going for him…until he was diagnosed with cancer. Rather than let it defeat him he tied the cancer in a knot and hung on with renewed determination. His book is all about hope, and holding onto life, and how he is doing it. This article from Guideposts tells a similar story. Linda Down from New York City was born with cerebral palsy. To get around she had to use aluminum crutches. Overweight and depressed she began to read the Bible. One day while reading Job she had a strange inspiration: “I am going to run the New York Marathon!” She started training, often running at night to avoid the curious stares. Her determination kept her going. Her faith gave her strength. She tied the knot! By some miracle she was accepted along with 16,000 others to run the marathon. On the day of the race she was grouped with other handicapped runners near the rear, and soon she was running with her crutches all alone. The crowds began to cheer
her. When she reached the finish line they were taking it down but she finished just before the deadline. Linda was the first person ever to finish the marathon on crutches. She was invited to the Whitehouse with the winners to meet President Reagan. She was named Athlete of the Year by the United Cerebral Palsy Association, and went on to work for the United Way, encouraging other handicapped persons to run. It is not what life does to us that matters ultimately. It is rather what we do with the life we receive. When life is at its toughest it is the knot of faith that we tie that gives us something to hold onto…and go on with living! An elderly minister I once heard about often encouraged his parishioners with Galatians 6:9, which he translated simply as: “Hangeth in there!” Check it out.

Imagine No Malaria
To be honest, most of us cannot imagine malaria at all. As an American parent, I worry about outside influences on my children, child care, education, teaching them to follow Jesus. Very few of us have serious health concerns where our children are concerned. It is a rarity. What if we had been born on the other side of the globe? Those parents have to worry not just about sickness, but death. Every 30 seconds a child in Africa dies from malaria. Yes, DIES. Half the world’s population 3.3 billion people live in a high risk area for malaria. Can you imagine our church holding funerals for babies regularly? I don’t want to. What can we do about it, you might ask. We can be like the poor widow in 1 Kings 17: 8-24. Elijah asked her for water and food. She tells him she only has a handful of meal and a little oil to make the last bread for her and her son to eat. She expects once she runs out, she and her son will die. Never the less, she does what Elijah asks and to her surprise there was enough to sustain them all through the drought. We may not feel as though we have much to offer, but God can use whatever we have, no matter how small. Fortunately malaria is preventable and can be cured if diagnosed and treated correctly. Wilson Marimi is a Field Coordinator with Imagine No Malaria, a ministry of the United Methodist Church. He will be here Sept. 12th at 9:30 am in Yeats Hall to share his experiences and the vision of the Methodist Church to eradicate malaria. You can seek information on your own by going to www.zapmalaria.com or I have a documentary called When the Night Comes you can borrow. In the coming weeks you will hear more and have opportunities to help fight this disease. Stay tuned. -- Kathy Bennett

Home Life Group: Anger and Stress Management God’s Way
What is the Biblical and God-Glorifying way to handle anger and stress? Anger and stress are perhaps the two most defining aspects of our world today. There are many ways of handling stress and anger: You can get increasingly angrier and more stressed out, you can resort to drugs and alcohol, you can turn violent, you can retreat into your own world and become cold and distant—or you can react God’s Way!

Have you considered that the decisions students make during their four years in college often impact their next sixty
There are a lot of important decisions being made by college students these days. Decisions about lifestyles, friends and careers. Over 90 percent of all Christians make their decision to trust Christ before the age of 21. That’s why for almost 60 years Campus Crusade for Christ has sought to fulfill the Great Commission by reaching college students, building them in their faith and sending them out to do the same.
Did you know that there are 110 million college students in the world
This influential one percent will be the future leaders of business, government and communities. And God is bringing an increasing number of college students into a relationship with Himself. From the university campus a great force is being raised up and sent out to reach the world for Christ. Megan and Aaron Fenderson
