Saving Lives, One Pint at a Time “Give Until it Feels Good”

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

What could be more important than helping save a life?  You have that opportunity on Tuesday, April 8 starting at noon until 6pm at Kitty Hawk United Methodist Church (KHUMC) as they host the American Red Cross Blood Drive.

Many of you are already regular donors and we thank you for continuing this life giving habit.  Even if you’ve never donated before, please consider being a donor this year in the KHUMC Fellowship Hall at 803 W. Kitty Hawk Road, Kitty Hawk.

When you donate blood at KHUMC, you’ll be treated to delicious homemade soup, sandwiches and desserts from some of the best cooks on the Outer Banks, the women of the church.

Blood Donor Factoids:

  • The number one reason donors say they give blood is because they “want to help others.”
  • One donation can help save the lives of up to three people.
  • Blood donation is a simple four-step process: registration, medical history/mini-physical, donation and refreshments.
  • Every blood donor is given a mini-physical, checking the donor’s temperature, blood pressure, pulse and hemoglobin to ensure it is safe for the donor to give blood.
  • The actual blood donation typically takes less than 10-12 minutes. The entire process, from the time you arrive to the time you leave, usually takes about an hour and 30 minutes.

Kitty Hawk United Methodist Church is located at 803 W. Kitty Hawk Road, Kitty Hawk.  For more information call 252-261-2062 or visit kittyhawkumc.org.

Lying to God

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013
The Acts of the Apostles contains a rather troubling episode in the fifth chapter.

But a man named Ananias, with the consent of his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property; with his wife’s knowledge, he kept back some of the proceeds, and brought only a part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? How is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.”  When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and died. (Acts 5:1-5a, NRSV)

The issue here, of course, is that the couple lied about what they were giving for God’s work. They lied not only to the apostles, but to God. Like Barnabas in the previous chapter (Acts4:36-37) they indicated that they would sell off some land they owned and give the proceeds to the newly formed faith community. But they conspired together in a lie. As Peter had indicated, they had been perfectly free to announce that they would give 25% or 50% or 80% of the proceeds, but they wanted others to believe they were more generous than they were.
There is no doubt that we worship a generous God. Just as we are called to reflect the love of our God and the hospitality of our God, we are expected to reflect God’s generosity. Indeed, these three are connected: love, hospitality, and generosity. As individuals and as a community of faith we have been given the gracious opportunity to his this out in God’s creation. As both individuals and as members together in Christ, we do so in the context of our communal life: life in the community of faith and life in the larger community around us.
In a recent sermon I mentioned that our capacity for love is connect to our receptivity to God’s grace. My we learn to live and grow in God’s grace in ways that find expression in our capacity for love, our willing and deliberate hospitality, and our demonstration of generosity.
Grace and Peace,

Pastor Alan
