If you’re looking for inspiration and hope – and in today’s world who isn’t – I encourage you to watch this video. It tells the story of our new Bishop, Karen Oliveto. Bishop Oliveto is the first openly lesbian Bishop in the United Methodist Church. The video is about 8 minutes long and worth every second. It affirms the reality that we are all beloved children of God, of sacred worth and limitless value.


The historic installation service of our new episcopal leader will be held on Saturday, September 24, at 3 pm at Arvada United Methodist Church (6750 Carr Street). This service will be a sight to see, and everyone is welcome and invited to attend.

God works in mysterious ways – God’s wonders to unfold. And we get to witness these wonders right before our very eyes. How amazing is that!

Thank you for your patience, support, and prayers while I have been under the weather. I’m on the mend and very grateful for that.

Please keep our beloved church in your prayers. I remember you in mine.

With love,

Rev. Pat Bruns
