Service weekend repairs hurricane-devastated homes while honoring Dr. King’s legacy

MARION—Sixteen months after Hurricane Florence battered the coastal Carolinas, devastating homes and towns alike, more than 50 United Methodists gathered for a weekend designed to rebuild and repair homes in the McColl, Lakeview, Dillon, Latta and Mullins communities of South Carolina. The service project was held over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, Jan. 18-20, both as an opportunity to give volunteers a long weekend to help, as well as to honor the legacy of King, one of the civil rights movement’s greatest heroes and servant-leaders.

Be at peace, for God has it all under control

God is still the God of the universe—and the head of this denomination. And God has the power and authority to do whatever God wishes—including change our hearts and minds and push through whatever plan God intends, whether this one or another entirely. An editorial by Jessica Brodie.
