Hi this is Bishop Julius C Trimble.

I have a mission “to encourage all people with the love of Jesus Christ to rise to their highest potential” - in short, to be encouraged.

I get encouraged when I hear stories of good news. It could be a gospel story like Jesus encouraging Zacchaeus about going to his house or one of our United Methodist Churches serving the needs of the homeless in their community or even the laughter of my own granddaughter.

I am compelled by Jesus to share with you an encouraging word or two about Jesus, theology, the bible, the pandemic, the environment, racism, voting rights, human sexuality and state of the United Methodist Church.

I also think we rise to our highest potential when we listen and learn from others. I love to talk with be encouraged by having conversations with insightful experts who help make me better.

These are challenging times in our world and in our United Methodist Church to be sure and those matters need to be addressed. I just think we can talk about everything in the light of the overwhelming love of Jesus Christ and that is encouraging indeed.

So let’s talk.

Please let me encourage you to join me on my podcast.
