Man, I just realized that it has been two weeks since I have blogged. I'm not sure why.
The current sermon series is called Emoticons. It was inspired by my seven year old daughter who loves to put Emoticons in e-mails to her grandmother.
So far we have dealt with emotions around anticipation...that was for graduation Sunday on the 20th. The point of the sermon was "Don't ever graduate." Christians should always be growing and learning and "being conformed to the image of Christ." (Romans 8:29).
Yesterday we talked about the emotion of anger. The point was "if you don't control your anger, your anger will cotnrol you." I borrowed four ways to deal with anger from Charles Stanley:
1. Own it
2. Identify the source
3. Deal with it quickly
This coming Sunday is Homecoming. The Reverend Joe Parker will be bringing the message and instead of two services we will just have one service at 10:30 with a meal to share together afterwards.
