Come Alive

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  ― Howard Thurman

This past Sunday,  the new Spiritual Center at the United Methodist Church in Steamboat Springs, CO was dedicated. It came alive with activity, and the Jewish community of Har Mishpacha  joined us, as we’ve welcomed them for sometime to use our facilities for their religious services.

Many people joined in, acknowledging those who had committed themselves to seeing the project through. It’s been an awaited day which was celebrated with fellowship, prayer, song and food! Of course, food! Isn’t that what brings all people together??

The United Methodist Church’s motto has long been “open hearts, open minds and open doors.” And on this day, Rev. Timothy Selby officially announced from this day forward the place at the center of downtown historic Steamboat will be called “The Heart of Steamboat United Methodist Church.”

It was a very special day complete with the unveiling of  artist Chula Beauregard’s rendering of the new building in an oil painting and the reading of some very special words from talented stained glass artist, Sean Merchant.

Tonight, the Heart of Steamboat United Methodist Church will open it’s doors once again to anyone in the community who wishes to see the addition.
