Winter Wednesdays There are so many opportunities for worship in our church. This winter I’m offering the chance to learn through Christian speakers from around the world. On Wednesday nights after the JOLT meal at 6:30pm, we’ll be listening/watching a series on What Makes you Happy. Worship Ways At the same time there is a book study happening on the book entitled Worship Ways. I snuck ahead and read about half of it as of this writing.

Uninvited

Uninvited: Sounds like a strange title for a post doesn’t it? Last time I wrote about the wisdom of Linda Dillow in her book Calm my Anxious Heart. In previous studies, we enjoyed reading Unglued and The Best Yes, both written by Lysa. For our next study, we will be reading Uninvited. After 2 studies with Lysa, it does feel like we are on a first name basis. She is incredibly personable and the production quality on the DVD is outstanding. Through her writings and DVDs, Lysa does a wonderful job of reminding us to use......
