To My Congregation: This first year as your pastor at Blackfish United Methodist Church has been a wild ride. In the beginning, I thought the bishop was crazy when he appointed me to your church. He knew something had to change or the doors would close for good. He also knew I needed direction in my life. Perhaps the bishop was crazy, crazy like a fox. . You never had a woman pastor, let alone one who had once been an actress. You barely tolerated my Porsche, my dress, my makeup, and my style of ministering. You didn't trust my son, and couldn't understand why I didn't want you letting yourself into the parsonage when I wasn't home. But somehow we managed. . While I was learning to appreciate all of you, I met the man who was to give me a whole new outlook on life. It couldn't have come at a better time. It was his love that gave me the inspiration and courage to serve all of you. Love has a way of changing us like that. . This is an account of what happened in my first year at Blackfish UMC. It includes a flood, attempted murder of a young woman, a cheating husband, several natural deaths, two divorces, and so much more. I'm still amazed at all that has happened, but even more at how it drew us together. Truly love conquers all. I wonder what the next year will bring. God bless all of you, Pastor Maudy
