We pause this Sunday not only to honor our mothers but to celebrate the vibrant ministry of our United Methodist Women as we welcome the Rev. Karen Clark Ristine to the pulpit. Rev. Ristine, a close personal friend of mine for many years, currently serves as pastor of Mission Hills United Methodist Church in Mission Valley. In her ministry and personal life, she embodies the Wesleyan commitment to personal piety and social action in inspiring and practical ways. Her presence in the pulpit on United Methodist Women’s Sunday will be a gift to our congregation, calling each of us to a deeper devotion to Christian service in the church and in the world. I hope you will join us this Sunday as we welcome Rev. Ristine and honor the good work our local unit of United Methodist Women at SDUMC.
See you Sunday,
