Partnership in Education Signing Ceremony

May 4, 2011, I believe, will be a day Oak Haven UMC will remember for some time.  Perhaps the date will fade away; a handful of members were on hand that day.  However, I am convinced the partnership with F.M. Gilbert and The University of Dallas will prove to be a blessing for years to come.

Our partnership with the school is not about money.  It involves something more important--relationships.  Money may do a school a lot of good.  Lord knows how the impact of loosing money is hurting our schools right now.  Relationships, real relationships, though, last a lot longer and have a greater impact on the lives of the people involved.  If we can care enough to be involved in our schools, in the lives of the people of our communities and share the joys and pains of those who work with our students then we, the body of Christ, allow for God's love to be demonstrated in lasting ways.

Everyone around here knows how excited I am about this.  My prayer is that everyone will continue to jump on board with us.

Here is video coverage of our signing ceremony:

Stay blessed...john
