ESTES CHAPEL: Where It All Began

Jan and I agreed that if we could choose to return to one place in our travels, it would be to make one more stop at Estes Chapel and join in the singing of the Asbury Anthem. As Wesleyans we do not idolize “sacred places,” but we do remember “holy presence.” Estes Chapel is not sacred in itself, but it is certainly a place where Asburians take off their shoes to walk on holy ground.

PTSD: Forgiveness as Wholeness

Often, I remind my Veterans of the Scripture passage found in Luke 4:18-21, where Jesus begins to read from the scroll of Isaiah: “‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.’ And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, ‘Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.’”

Alumni Publications March 2017

“The truth is, prayer is simple, not complicated. I’m truly the last person who ever thought they’d write a book, but I’ve written a book on prayer called, Talking With God. My only hope for this book is that it would encourage you and others to pray and talk with God.” Rev. Adam Weber
