I can't believe that our Miracle of Mercy spiritual growth campaign is in its final week. If you think about it, we are really just beginning the Miracle of Mercy journey. What an incredible privilege to be able to give out God's mercy to others every day. Our Connection Group started a list of people who need to experience God's mercy and we all committed to praying for these people. When the question was posed 'who is going to be in heaven because of you?' we all felt the weight of that responsibility and decided to start praying about it.
Here is a good article about keeping our focus on reaching people as the world changes so rapidly.
In a couple of weeks we are going to start a study on one of my favorite books (forgive me Martin Luther) in the bible, James. You might enjoy reading the book through a few times in the next weeks, there is some great spiritual growth material in James.
I like to think of myself as an optimist - fellow optimists enjoy these quotes.
I found this short video that shows the essence of Celebrate Recovery. Take a couple of minutes to look at it and pray for our church and how we can be involved in this ministry of helping people with addictions discover freedom in Jesus Christ.
And finally - just some laughs in this video. Pray on!
