A Thought

What does it look like to be a Christian in our country? Well, for a long time it looked the same as a good chunk of society. Going to church, living virtuous lives, and so on were accepted and seen as good.

Today we live in a different country, but what we are called to do as Christians has not changed. We still pray, we still go to church to hear about Christ and received peace in the forgiveness of sins. We still proclaim Christ crucified and raised again for the forgiveness of sins. We still teach husbands and wives to be faithful to one another. We still pray to the one true God. What once was normal is now seen as resistance. Keep resisting and live the life you were called to in baptism. (Ephesians 5-6)

Calendar
1/15
Youth Group – 12-2 at the Ed Building. We’ll have a lesson time, and then we can have time to talk about current events from a Christian perspective. Bring articles and questions you would like to have opened up for discussion with the group (you can submit stuff to me so that the source of the question is unknown to everyone else). We’ll also be deciding some stuff for February, so be sure to come to have a voice.

1/22
Financial Peace University starts (3-5) – This is a 9-week program about Godly money management. I have taken it once and taught it once and it is a fun and engaging time each time I’ve seen the videos. I highly highly highly encourage any of the youth and families who can, to take this class. This digs not only into getting out of debt and using money wisely, but it also digs into retirement stuff, choosing the right insurance for your budget and so on. Even if youth can come for the weeks that are applicable to them, it’s a great opportunity. If you’re interested, please let me know.

Feel free to call or visit with questions, or to just talk in general.
