From Pastor Mary Beth: Nurturing Faith - Going Deep

Our first year of gardening at Juliana Place has been an experiment.  Where is the best sun?  The best soil?  It turns out that the okra, planted by the fence, is going to be the best crop.  In this season of record heat and sporadic rain, I think I know why.  It’s the roots.  They are sturdy, deep and have multiple shoots going down.

 Our spiritual roots can also go deep, and when they do, we are healthy, fruitful and strong.  All of the opportunities being planned for fall here at Fairlington UMC are like the soil being prepared. Look at this wonderful list!   Think about how you would like to be planted in this soil. We will be nurtured together.

The church has always been a presence in my life.  Some of my earliest memories are of Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, and Children’s Church. Then came Confirmation, and serving as an acolyte and coming to worship. In all of this, I came to realize that the Holy Spirit was always with me.


As a teenager, I struggle most days to wake up and get out of bed and get going. However, one of my biggest motivators is that God is telling  me that I have a purpose and that there is a reason I should get up. Throughout the day, I often feel the Holy Spirit filling me and urging me onward. A clear example was this past weekend when I was competing with my crew team in the Virginia State Championships.


We pulled up to the starting line, and I quietly prayed that the race would go smoothly and that we would be able to win.. After a rough start, I could feel the tension in the…

We celebrate Fairlington's 5-year anniversary of becoming a Reconciling Congregation, intentionally welcoming all people as beloved children of God.
