Overcoming Worry

Posted by FUMC on November 16, 2018 at 12:48pm 0 Comments

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had these dolls in my collection. Somewhere along the way I learned that they were from Guatemala and called worry dolls. According to Wikipedia, they were given to “brooding and sorrowful” children who would share their worries with the doll, then hide it under their pillow at night.  By the next morning, all the concerns would have been taken away by the worry doll.    


Matthew 6:15 says, “Do not worry about your life. . .” 

Is it as easy as all that?  Life is learning, over time, to put things in perspective.  It’s having ways to share and then let go of the anxieties that most paralyze us. What are you worried about today?  Who can you share it with?  What new perspective helps you see things differently?

Reconciling Notes

Immigration 101: 

 Sunday, September 23, in the Fellowship Hall immediately after the 11:00AM service. Light lunch to be served.

An Overview of U.S. Immigration Law

Do you ever wonder about immigration laws?

What’s a visa, a green card, DACA?

Why immigrants don’t just apply for citizenship?

Would you like to have a better understanding of immigration rules in a non-political format?


Lunch will be followed by Just Neighbors presenting an easy to understand overview of the ins and outs of our country’s very complex immigration system.


Regardless of your political views, this presentation will focus on facts about who is eligible for the various types of legal status in the U.S. and what the various types mean. There will be time for Q&A. 


No RSVP necessary, just come! For more information contact Mark Elder markuselder@gmail.com.



Co-hosted by FUMC’s Reconciling Ministry Team

and the Church in Society Team.


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.
