Sunday Reflections (Feb. 3, 2013): Proverbs, All-Male Service Provider Sunday, Engagement
As I tweeted sometime on last week, I continued my series on Proverbs today, looking at chapter 1 verses 20 through 33. The lesson title was “Listen Up! Wisdom is Talking.” To summarize, the passage contrasts the resulting consequences/outcomes of those who ignore (God’s) Wisdom versus those who listen to her.
I am very encouraged by the number of people who are showing up for the class. We are averaging about 45 so far. Praise God!
All-Male Service Provider Sunday
Today we launched what our Pastor calls all-male service provider Sunday. Every 1st Sunday of the month the men of our church will be responsible for serving in all areas of ministry: parking lot attendants, choir members, ushers, greeters, decision team members, etc.
The goal of this is simply to encourage more men to get involved in serving the church. Today was a good start. I’m hoping that more of my young adult peers will take up the challenge and begin using their gifts to build the body of Christ, as God intends.
Next Sunday, February 10th, I will be going over to Greater Bethlehem Baptist Church (www.greaterdallas.org) to preach for my friend, Pastor Stephen G. Brown, who serves as the Senior Pastor. Jesus is doing a tremendous work through him in leading this church. If you have an opportunity, check him (them) out online.
I am truly humbled and honored to serve him and the Greater Bethlehem family through the preaching of God’s Word. I look forward to our time together in worship and fellowship as well!
Well, time to relax, eat some of these Italian Sausage Rotel Nachos that my wife made, and watch this Super Bowl game and entertainment.
Enjoy your day. Go Ravens! 🙂
