Greetings my friends. It is Sunday April 24TH 2022, and this is the day that our LORD has made. Let us rejoice. Let us be glad in it. Let us celebrate this great new day of believing, following, trusting, loving, and being more like our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ.
I’m looking forward to service and fellowship with my brothers and sisters of my church family this morning. I’ve got a busy next couple of Sundays coming up in May. Filling-in for my Pastor – I’ll be leading my church family from beginning to end on May 01ST and 08TH. I’ll be opening the service, leading Praise & Worship, praying for the church and beyond, preaching the sermon, leading Communion (on May 08TH), and closing the service. I’m honored that I’ve been blessed with this opportunity.
On May 01ST I’ll be presenting the 3RD edition of my “Ways & Memes” message series. It’s about an “every 14 months” sermon for me that’s inspired entirely by Bible-based memes I’ve found on Facebook and saved. This message series gets me from behind the pulpit, off the altar, and up-close and personal with my church family, as I speak whatever is on my mind at the time as each new meme is displayed on the big screens.
I have a lot to say about this meme when it goes up:
On May 08TH I’ll be preaching another spontaneous sermon titled “People & Places”. I have no idea how this one is going to go, as I won’t have any memes to show, and I probably won’t even use any notes. It’ll be an impromptu sermon about people and places I’ve met or experienced recently. I could probably speak for 3 hours or more on this topic, so I’ll see what happens in less than 45 minutes.
Ever since I got that coffee mug for Pastor Appreciation Month a couple of years ago and I placed it on my desk – the time spent by coworkers / visitors at my desk has plummeted by over 75%. So now I have to meet people in places while on vacation in order to come up with new ideas for future sermons.
If you wish to learn more about the God I know then stay tuned to #SundayScripture. The best is yet to come !
Thank you for reading my blog for this day, and may:
The LORD bless you, and keep you.
The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you.
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN.
