LET YOURSELF BLOOM.
Here in the City of Dogwoods the blooms of Spring are a beautiful thing. Here at Abbeville United Methodist we are excited about a different kind of blooming. We (by God's power) grow, heal, transform, empower, lead, love and connect with people.

Several of us have chosen a word for this new year. Mine is the Hebrew word lev which means heart. The symbol for this is interesting. Reading from right to left the word lev is a shepherd's crook (symbolizing 'authority') and a floor plan of a Hebrew tent (meaning 'within'). Thus heart means 'the authority within.' This clarifies and amplifies the passage "where your treasure is, there your heart is also." Heart is what drives you. Heart is all about your deep-seeded passion. Heart is about applied love at its basic level ... for if we treasure God above all, God will be the heart that guides us ... sends us ... gives us our daily marching orders.
