Announcement Of Retirement By Joe Dan Boyd 01-30-13

Joe Dan Boyd Retires From Communications And Leadership Positions At Tinney Chapel United Methodist Church, Effective IMMEDIATELY



Joe Dan Boyd, having been born into this Church in 1934, attended faithfully until leaving for college in 1953, returning in 1997 after continuing to regard it as his home church during the (1953-1997) interim, and, since 1997, having previously served Tinney Chapel United Methodist Church as Lay Leader, Chair of Administrative Council, Member (Delegate) of Annual Conference, Adult Sunday School Teacher and long-time Communications Coordinator, all on the local church level, today announces his retirement as Tinney Chapel Communications Coordinator, effective immediately.

In addition, Boyd announces that he also relinquishes any other leadership positions, appointive or elective, that he may currently hold at Tinney Chapel, effective immediately, including membership on the Nominations (Lay Leadership) Committee and membership in the Tinney Chapel Troubadours praise band. 

However, Boyd will continue to apply for annual renewal of his Certified Lay Speaker appointment, a position he has held since 1998.

By way of clarification, Boyd further announces that his personal spiritual Blog (Weblog), Tinney Chapel Today, not currently claimed as the Church’s official Internet presence, which Boyd created and has maintained since 2004, will be left online with currently existing archives intact, but not regularly updated in its present format. Instead, Boyd will henceforth post occasional columns, rural ministry analysis and theological opinions as motivated by forthcoming events and intervention by the Holy Spirit.

Meanwhile, Boyd will attempt to pursue research and writing on a variety of topics, which have been simmering on the back burner for long periods of time, although never entirely abandoned nor completely neglected.

Boyd professes his gratitude and appreciation to the Tinney Chapel UMC membership and staff for cooperation over the years, and for their faith in him as evidenced in part by the opportunities for service expressed above. 

Boyd will continue his membership at Tinney Chapel UMC, which he branded as “the quintessential country church,” and which will always be his first and primary spiritual love.

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

King James Version (KJV)
12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19 And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23 And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24 For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
29 Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles?
30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

Praise & Gospel Night Concert @ Tinney Chapel 01-19-13


Once on the Internet, click on the above to enlarge it in your screen.

Tinney Chapel United Methodist Church invites the public, through the press, to its third Praise & Gospel Night concert: Saturday, Jan. 19, 6:30 pm in the church’s modern and spacious family life center at 449 CR 4620 just off FM 312, two miles south of Winnsboro.

Host band for the event is the Tinney Chapel Troubadours, a praise band led by the church’s Pastor, Rev. Carl Sterling, who is an accomplished singer-guitarist, and also includes two well-known local singer-songwriters, George Jordan and Kevin Tinney. Other Troubadours include Roger Schneider, Joe Dan Boyd, and Daniel Craft. 

Out-of-town bands that have been invited include J.R. & Bonnie Pilson, Snow Hill and several others. Local Winnsboro groups have been invited to participate.

Although a voluntary love offering will be taken for missions, admission is free to this concert, which is part of Brother Carl Sterling’s brand of outreach ministry.

“We expect to continue hosting monthly Praise & Gospel Night concerts at Tinney Chapel, the quintessential country church,” explains Rev. Sterling, who has also hosted a Back To School Cookout, a Breakfast For WISD Teachers at Memorial School and a free community Christmas Dinner since his appointment last June to Tinney Chapel UMC.

Tinney Chapel was established in February 1900, by a land grant from Ambrose Tinney, a cotton farmer who moved here in 1886 from Alabama.

Tinney Chapel has twice been awarded the Marvin T. Judy award for excellence in rural ministry (2002 and 2004) in UMC’s North Texas Conference, which extends from Bogota to Burkburnett.

John 3:2-20

New International Version (NIV)
He came to Jesus at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the signs you are doing if God were not with him.”
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]
“How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’ The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[d]
“How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.
10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.[e] 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[f] 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”[g]
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.

Ephesians 1:3-14

New International Version (NIV)

Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he[a] predestined us for adoption to sonship[b] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, he[c] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
11 In him we were also chosen,[d] having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, 12 in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. 13 And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.
Footnotes:
  1. Ephesians 1:5 Or sight in love. He
  2. Ephesians 1:5 The Greek word for adoption to sonship is a legal term referring to the full legal standing of an adopted male heir in Roman culture.
  3. Ephesians 1:9 Or us with all wisdom and understanding. And he
