This Sunday, March 9, we are beginning a new theme for our Journey3 worship gatherings. John Ortberg begins his book, Who is This Man as follows,
“On the day after Jesus’ death, it looked as if whatever small mark he left on the world would rapidly disappear. Instead, his impact on human history has been unparalleled.”
In our theme over the next couple of months we will look at the life of Jesus and his historical impact on children, women, education, government, health care and marriage. We will see that Jesus turned the world upside down by reversing what people value so that virtues such as humility, forgiveness and servanthood became forces for social change. We will watch as Jesus calls every person to leave the life of hypocrisy and find the power needed to live authentically. On Easter Sunday, April 20, we will marvel at the radically new life that Jesus promises to people who are willing to live as if they are already dead.
This will be a great theme! How can it not be? It’s about Jesus! So invite your friends for some marvelous discussion starting this Sunday at 11 am.
Please be praying.
Pray for Michelle. She needs to find a job soon!
Pray for Lauren. She is leaving on a mission trip to Haiti this Friday.
Pray for Journey3. Pray that we would grow closer to Jesus and that we would shine more clearly with the love of Jesus.
Can you recall our memory verses? Psalm 119:11, 32, Matthew 28:18-20. This Sunday we will add to the list.
Movie Night is coming Friday, March 21. Supper will be at 5:30 pm with the movie, Man of Steel, starting at 6 pm at Rivergate. Invite your friends for a fun evening!
Remember, you are the light of the world!
