This past week our interim pastor asked me to preach in a service at the beginning of March. As I have reflected on this opportunity I have been impressed that this church will have experienced a great shift. By the first week in March have launched two phases of our evangelism and outreach strategy. We will have had our first two monthly church wide visitations and we will have started our outreach to newcomers to our community. This promises to be very productive and I am filled with anticipation for what God is going to do. I believe that it will change the culture of this church.
With this in mind I have to search for what God would have me preach. Even though I do not know what our church will need in 8 weeks. It is a trust I have to be sure of and confident in or I will fail in my responsibility to be an effective messenger of God
