About

Since July 2015, I have had the privilege to serve as the District Superintendent for the 39 United Methodist Churches scattered across the state of Wyoming (yes, the whole state of Wyoming!).  Needless to say, I have travelled a lot of miles.  This blog, Wyoming Wanderings, is a collection of thoughts, prayers, messages, and other sundry things that go through my head as I observe what God is doing among the people called Methodists in this state and across the West.

The credit for the title of this blog actually belongs to my predecessor, Rev. Deb Olenyik, who served so ably as District Superintendent before me.  Her newsletter articles to our churches were entitled ‘Wyoming Wanderings,’ such a great title that I’ve continued the tradition including into this blog.  Thanks Deb!

Shalom, Jeff Rainwater
