Meet Your Father (Father’s Day)

2nd Look 6.21.16
Hello everyone! Welcome to this week’s 2nd look.
This will be my final 2nd look for a while as I am embarking on my sabbatical starting tomorrow!

This past Sunday we looked at who God is as our Father!

My invitation to you this week is to spend some time reading one of Jesus’ greatest illustrations on God’s love to us as a father: Luke 15:11-32. It is one of the most powerful and beautiful stories of God’s love to us as a father.

Take some time to sit with this story. Read it several times this week and let it speak to you. As you read the story ask yourself- what do you notice about the way the father loves the son?

Have a wonderful week everybody!

The Door Opener – Brave Conversations

2nd Look 6.14.16

Hello everyone!

This is the final 2nd look for our “Got the skills” series…

As you progress through this week I want to make 2 invitations to you.

#1- Open each day with a simple prayer: “Lord would you allow me to have a brave conversation with someone today? Who would you want me to talk with?

#2- Take some time to read 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8. As God provides you with opportunities to have brave conversations, try to be the things you see in this passage. Try to be more loving.

As you do these two things, and embark on brave conversations, you may very well be shocked to see just how God leads and uses you this week.

May God bless you!

Giving Away the Awakening

2nd Look 5.2.16

Hello my friends and welcome to this week’s 2nd look. You may recall that this week’s sermon was our final in the “Breaking Free” series. For this week, my invitation to you is simple. I’d like you to set aside some time each day to reflect on your journey of Breaking Free. Here are some questions you can reflect upon with the Lord:
  • Has there been something you’ve needed to break free from?
  • Why is this thing so powerful in your life? What need does it fill for you?
  • Have you found something to fill this need instead of the destructive thing in your life?
  • How has that process been going for you? What has been working for you? What has made it difficult for you?
  • Who can help you in this process? Are you letting them?
  • Lastly- who can you help?

Please take some time this week and consider these questions. They can be very helpful for you to think very intentionally about where you are at in the journey of breaking free.

Have a wonderful week everybody!

Pastor Ryan
