Barbara & I have been active members of Agape' United Methodist Church since 1979. This is a relatively small congregation, but it is extremely active in all areas of ministry. This church truly epitomizes the concept of Christian love. Agape' is a member of the Lubbock District of the Northwest Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Barbara & I are Methodists because we strongly believe in their Principles and Beliefs and in the Wesleyian tradition and doctrines.
I have served the Agape' congregation in many leadeship capacities over the years. For the years 2001-2004, I was privileged to serve as the Chair of the Administrative Council, which is the congregation's governing body. Currently, I am the Stewardship Chair. In this position, I am responsible for leading the annual Fall pledge campaign for the congregation.
The congregation of Agape' United Methodist Church has literally been like a family to Barbara & me over the years. Their Christian love & support has been invaluable to us during several crises. In particular, without this congregation's support, some of Barbara's health crises would have been almost unbearable.
In 2002 &
again in 2003,
I was privileged to give the Laity
Sermon on Laity Sunday. My sermons:
It may seem strange for a
Physicist to be a Christian. However, I feel that there is nothing
contradictory about science & religion. Rather, they are two complimentary
views of the universe & the way it works. A book which comes the
closest to agreeing with my philosophy on the interaction between
science & religion is "Can
a Smart Person Believe in God?", by Michael Guillen (Thomas Nelson, Inc.,
publisher, 2004. The
link on the book title leads to a page at Amazon.com ).
Dr. Guillen has a PhD in theoretical physics & has been the
Science Correspondent for ABC News. I strongly recommend this book to
anyone who has questions along the lines of the interaction between
faith & science.
