Dear Curwensville Alliance Church Family,Continue reading
I have some good friends who feel it’s wrong to ask God “Why?” When I asked them why I can’t ask God why, they say that it’s disrespectful and that it’s none of our business why God does what he does.
Yeah…. and no. You can ask God why with a heart of disrespect. I’ve done it. Countless times.
But you can ask God why with a heart that wants to see what He sees – a heart that wants to know as we are known.
If asking God “Why?” draws you closer to him, there’s probably little you could do that would be more constructive.
Christian Audio has a book for you called Don’t Lose Heart. It’s free for the month of April 2020.
WAIT! Don’t dismiss this by saying, “I can’t listen to audio books; my mind wanders.”
That’s probably true. Your mind does that while you’re reading a book or even watching TV. But you can change that.
It’s a learned discipline to focus your attention in any area, and audio is no exception. I encourage you to give it a try.
You can get the book by clicking this link:
https://christianaudio.com/free/ and registering for a free account.
Don’t be afraid to register with ChristianAudio. I’ve received GREAT books from Christian Audio – many free, some that I have purchased.
This is Passion Week – or Holy Week – the week we remember Jesus’ Passion.
These days, when I think of passion, I think of how hard my fellow church leaders are working to do their ministry. Today, Laurel was helping me make this video and I said,”And just like that, every pastor’s wife became a video producer.”
Why are all these pastors doing this?
Why are all the churches streaming?
What a lot of people don’t realize is that this push – this passion for the gospel – is not new for most of my peers. The circumstances simply make it more evident.
Got passion? Let it show!
Presented for Curwensville Alliance on April 5. 2020 by Pastor Steve Shields.
Why did Jesus ride a donkey into Jerusalem?
He had some important reasons – reasons relevant to you and me.
Thanks, Drew Stodart, for providing worship in song.
Laurel would like to invite the women of the church to a virtual small group.
More information can be found here.
Registration will close soon, so act quickly.
