Wow! It’s been an interesting week, and I say that in a good way. The weather continues to be interesting. Since Thursday, we have had on and off snow showers – snow followed by sunshine and back to sunshine. Today was a bit different starting with snow showers and then we had partly cloudy skies for the rest of the day. Like all of you we lost an hour’s sleep last night. It was interesting…those who normally show up early…showed up a little later and I almost thought several had forgot to move their clocks ahead.
This past week, we had our first Lenten Luncheon with the local ministerial association. I led the worship and ended up doing the devotional. This week our church is helping to provide the food, but the other church is doing the devotional, but I will still be doing the worship (responsive reading and music.)
In addition, I am working with a community choir for a Palm Sunday concert. I offer a word of thanks to my friend Allen, who got me some music from our former church. We have some impressive talent here in our area. The choir sight-read most of the musical and the pianist sight-read the accompaniment. I am looking forward to our Palm Sunday evening worship event.
Friday evening, we trekked over the mountain to Bradford to assist First Wesleyan with their coffee house service. Once again there were some people who wandered in off the street, which is exactly how this service is designed to work. Pam and I were there for support and I kicked off the service with a call to worship and invocation.
It’s hard to believe but our revival is just around the corner. Our guest will be Joe Payne who pastors the Hess Road Wesleyan Church. We have been praying for revival and we are looking forward to what God has in store.
So far, it seems like it’s been all church stuff, but that’s the way it has gone this week and the next two weeks are much the same. Next year our revival will be after Lent.
Over spring break, James told us he will be going to Washington DC. He will be meeting with representatives with Congress about the healthcare situation. We are praying for James as he goes and represents Houghton.
I do have an unspoken prayer request that I would ask you to pray for.
Thank you for your continued prayers. Today was an absolutely incredible morning. Pam, Anna and I sang a special, but the whole service was truly anointed. It am thankful for what God is doing in McKean County. At this point, I can’t think of anything else, so we will see you next week.
Here is the sermon link from this morning.
