Devon, Devon! I will admit that growing up there were times that I pretended that I couldn’t hear my parents calling me from downstairs in our family home. I knew what would come next, could you please unload the dishwasher? Could you take out the trash or vacuum the family room? I hoped that if I stayed quiet enough they would stop calling for me and move on to asking another one of my sisters.


Have you ever found yourself doing this with God? Are there times when you feel God leading you to do something but you pretend that you don’t notice because you really don’t want to respond? You aren’t alone. Jonah did just that and was reluctant to respond to where God was leading him until he found himself in the belly of a big fish.

Reconciling Notes

Download Here: Our 5 Year History as a Reconciling Congregation

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

Our celebratory theme, “Love in All Colors,” reflects the breadth and diversity of God’s human creation as proclaimed in our church’s welcoming statement.

Check out our audio for personal testimonies from FUMC members. They share how being part of a reconciling congregation has personally affected them and shaped their faith journey.
