Lamb or Lion? It has been a cold snowy winter and the long rides on Sunday and Tuesday evenings after youth meetings have been chilly. We are not only ready to have March come as a lamb, but to continue to put our trust in the “Lamb of God.” God has been GOOD!!
Our adventure to Guatemala was fantastic. After enduring weather in the 70’s for the week, it was hard to come home to another snowstorm. Because of weather, we were blessed with two extra days in Guatemala and some extra sightseeing. The whole trip was a “once in a lifetime” experience and blessings were flowing. Our team will be presenting a report to the Mt. Haley congregation on Sunday, March 16, in the morning Worship Service at 11:00 AM. Come and share in the blessings of the trip.
This Sunday, Pastor David preached from 1 Corinthians 2, a chapter which emphasizes God’s secret wisdom and the role his Spirit plays in revealing that wisdom to the people of God. What kinds of mysteries do we encounter in our faith, and how can they change our lives? Listen in to this week’s sermon, and join the conversation!
Today, Tara and I sang in a choral concert at Memorial Presbyterian Church in Midland. The concert featured a 45-minute piece of music entitled “Requiem,” written by the 20th Century French composer Maurice Durufle. It’s a beautiful piece that is very familiar to me, since I sang it with a different choir a decade ago. Singing along with a hundred other singers, a small orchestra, and a recently installed pipe organ was a tremendous experience. There’s something about religious choral music that speaks to my heart in powerful ways.
After two weeks away from the pulpit, Pastor David returns to continue our study of 1 Corinthians. In the final section of this letter’s first chapter, Paul gives the fundamental reason for our unity and humility in the church, a reason that is summarized by the two words that we preach: Christ crucified.
