1. Dan's sermon on Sunday was "START ONE TO HEAVEN IN TWENTY ELEVEN." In other words, he challenged each of us to share Jesus with enough people in 2011 that at least one would make the decision for Jesus and eternal life. Each of us had a sticker to write one or more person(s) name(s) on. The name(s) that we each wrote down would be who we'd be praying for this year. Each of us came forward to affix our stickers to a poster. As you know, my cell phone camera is having some challenges, but I think you will get an essence of how powerful that quiet / somber time was as we dedicated ourselves to being LIGHT AND SALT to our friends and family.
.Sherri's high quality camera took this picture of Matt placing his sticker on the already almost full poster of names. It was a powerfully thought provoking experience!
- 400 chairs unloaded from the back of a truck, stacked ten chairs high, wheeled from the back of a truck into church building, unwrapped, un-bundled all the straps, cardboard, and plastic wrap, then carried junk back outsided to the dumpster; then everyone posed for pictures. Total elapsed time=1 hr. 15 minutes. Men, women and children helped. What a fantastic church family.
Thank you Pitman Road church of Christ for leading the BLESSED LIFE that shines and flavors Jesus in this dark world!
I'm grateful that we have the freedom to study Christ's sermon on the mount this year on this blog. I invite you to come back and join us daily as we study and internalize His powerful teachings.
