First of all, just wanted to say a big thank you for those who came out on Sunday morning and totally rocked my face off. I was so pumped when I left class on Sunday – so grateful that you all were so willing to share and ask questions and just be there. I think this class has some great potential and am so glad that people are wanting to be part of it.
I’ve been reminded several times this week of God’s voice of love – and how our ministry (because we’re all called to represent him) is validated by that voice. Isn’t it so great to know that God doesn’t just love us, he believes in us and trusts that we’re going to do some great things for him?!
As for this week, here are the texts:
1 Corinthians 12:1-11
Just a little FYI . . . Pastor Dana is using the lectionary for her texts, but for preaching purposes has bumped things up a week. This actually is pretty cool, because starting next week, we’ll be discussing the same text that she used in the previous sermon. That way, you’ll have a whole week to mull over what she preached on and hopefully bring your thoughts for discussion. (So, pay attention to the sermon on Sunday, I might give you a pop quiz next week!)
As for this Sunday, read over the texts and think about the things that come to mind when you read them. Does anything else you’ve been reading come to mind? Songs? News events? Is there a particular passage that resonates with you this week?
Again, as thoughts come to mind, feel free to post them here. Get the conversation started! I look forward to being with you again on Sunday!
