A Word from Bro Steve

  Bro Steve at the Pulpit

March 2017

Lent is almost here, (but I emptied the screen on the dryer-twice!) Lent is the 40 days of preparation before Easter, and it’s kind of a big deal in the United Methodist Calendar.

For years, Lent is a time to give up something to help us focus. Originally, it was mainly diet stuff, (meat and chocolate) but it can be lots of things. People give up bag habits, (drinking and tobacco) and that is why Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras) has become such a time of debauchery.

Other people take on new habits during Lent. If you do something for 40 days, it can be a new habit. Years ago, I used Let to do a daily devotion that I shared with former students from my Senior Sunday school class that were away at school or work. I will admit that was very rewarding, but eventually I stopped.

What will you do? I do recommend that you do something different in your life during this time. It does make the Easter experience even greater.

We will offer a Lenten Bible study at St. Paul’s this year on Thursday evenings. We are studying Adam Hamilton’s “John – The Gospel of Light and Love.” This is a study using both a study book and a video to help us understand the Gospel of John. We will meet at 6:00 pm, starting March 2, for a light supper and then the study. It should be done by 8:00. We have the book available for purchase at the office for $10.00 each.

Also, I will encourage each of us to practice daily discipline through scripture reading, daily devotions or prayer. Think out of the box, what can you do for a little over a month that may make a difference in your or someone else’s life? Here’s a thought; how about making a concerted effort to make worship every Sunday. It may rock you, and your neighbor’s world.

Go-Fight-Win. Amen.

Bro. Steve

 

The Zombie Church

January 22, 2017

Good Morning Everybody!

  This week at St. Paul’s we will revisit the 2014 sermon on the Zombie Church. It will be different, but should be very good. This would be a wonderful time to invite guests to come worship. Go to the St. Paul’s facebook page and like the entry on Zombie Church, and share on your wall. Try something new and different to get the word out. We are a cutting edge congregation, so lets share that with others.

Go-Fight-Win. Amen.

Bro Steve
