During your workday, you are going to encounter boring and uninteresting meetings or lectures which require attention that may be hard for you to give.

In these situations, it’s key that you stay engaged. Use the tips and techniques below to help you stay focused so you can better listen and take in what’s going on.
On my best days, I use FB to stay connected to people, reach out to those in need, see pictures of my grandchildren, and use it as a ministry tool. On my worst days, I feel pleased when I see how many “likes” or comments I got on one of my posts. Dare I say sometimes those “likes” and other emoji reactions give me a rush, or the absence makes me feel disappointed, wondering why no one liked what I said. But I never realized how much I reacted to it all until I went on my month-long fast.
Proper online etiquette is critical for many reasons. Even your personal accounts can be visible to people you don’t know, and your posts and shares, once public, are on the record for a long time. Your social media presence should inspire pride, not regret, and what you share should stand out from the daily babble.
Jesus prayed that past, present and future believers would experience unity (John 17). Our unity is found in our relationship with Jesus Christ. One of the recurring Pauline New Testament phrases is “In Christ.” Paul preaches and teaches about the varied blessings and benefits of being “in Christ.”

I love The United Methodist Church and am convinced that this issue need not divide us. I am convinced that we can live together, like family, and still have differences in our approaches regarding issues of human sexuality. I remain committed to the preaching and teaching of the Good News of the Gospel. I remain convinced that everyone needs a personal relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ. I believe the United Methodist church is stronger and can accomplish more when we focus on those things that unite us; GRACE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, FORGIVENESS, and our MISSION and MINISTRY to the World that God loves.
Prayer offered by Bishop Frank J. Beard at the Council of Bishops on May 3, 2018.
The Cubs winning the World Series. The Cardinals beating the Cubs. He / she says “yes”. All A’s on the report card. A special song playing. Da Bears (or your favorite team). Ice cream. Paying all the bills and having money left over. Getting a job. Retirement. Special occasions. A hole in one. Accomplishing a tough task or achieving a major goal. These and many more things are reasons to shout.
