Reaching people with the love and teachings of Jesus Christ

Hello Friends,

Recently I was re-reading a passage from one of my favorite books “Velvet Elvis” by Rob Bell. He says, “I realized I believed in Jesus and thought of myself as ‘saved’ and ‘redeemed’ and ‘reborn’, yet massive areas of my life were unaffected. I learned that salvation is for all of me.”

I’ve found this to be true in my life as well. There are areas of my life I could see God at work, areas of my life I gladly turn(ed) over to God, but there are areas of my life that I did not turn over to God. For the month of October we’ll be examining the theme of wholeness, to be complete in mind, body, and spirit; if you want to separate it that way.

We’ll look at six areas of our lives: the areas unchanged by God, ridding ourselves of evil influences, guilt/shame/forgiveness, taking care of our bodies, letting go of [fill in the blank], and gratitude. I can’t promise you’ll be a whole person at the end of the series but, we should all be a little closer.

Grace and Peace,
Pastor Paul
