A Note from Pastor Rafe
The Shepherd's Vigil
We just finished the Sunday morning series of "Beyond the Resolutions". We all are always looking to enhance our lives and New Year resolutions don't seem to work. The real power for life is in Jesus Christ. As I shared these messages over the last few weeks I have had many positive remarks and comments following the services and throughout the weeks. Thank you all very much but I am just the messenger the true Word is from God.
It is nice to hear compliments but what I truly desire is to see God's Word transform lives. You felt something great in worship that moved you, did you share it with someone who needed it or just tell the pastor thanks?
More than a dozen years ago I read a book that transformed my life and my approach to spirituality. It restructured my whole way of relating to God and using the spiritual disciplines that strengthen life. A year later the book was updated and I bought a number of copies to share with the important people in my life. I kept copies on my shelf to share with those I felt would benefit from it. A year later the author made a video series for group study and discussion and of course I used it over and over. I found something that was of great meaning to me and I shared it.
I truly believe if what you experience on Sunday morning has great meaning to you, you would share it. You taste a good food you offer your dinning mates a bite right?
Thanks for the kind words after I share a message. If it is really that good, invite a friend to share it with you. Bringing someone with you to worship is the true sign that you are experiencing the grace of God. Besides, wouldn't it be selfish to keep a good thing all to yourself?
See you on Sunday and I look forward to meeting who you invite,
Saturday Morning House of Prayer - Open Prayer in the Sanctuary, 9-9:30 am, Prayer Service 9:30 am
All are invited to come into the Sanctuary for a time of prayer. At 9:00 am quiet, individual prayer. At 9:30 am Pastor Barb will bring a focusing scripture, reflection, and music provided by Michael. We will then continue with anointing prayers for healing as the Spirit leads us.
