Though summer is upon us, our life and ministry increasingly experiences the refreshing wind of the Holy Spirit as we increase intimacy with Him through Jesus.
A new adult education class commences this Sunday and Deeper Discipleship continues on Wednesdays. Go to www.belvpresbyterian.org for more information.
Speaking of things heating up, our franchise aka denomination known as the Presbyterian Church (USA) will be in the news in the next few weeks as our big meeting (General Assembly) convenes and does its thing which we pray will be His thing. Anyway, check out the below - "The Dirty Secret Why People Leave Churches" for some of my parochial concerns - and if you're interested in "fair and balanced" reporting, go to www.churchandworld.com for the best summary of news impacting modern ministry. You will also want to check out other interpretations via www.pcusa.org and www.layman.org to decide for yourself. You're gonna hear and read a lot about this meeting; and if you're depending upon local rags for disclosing the truth in a John 3:19-21 kinda way, you're gonna be disappointed. So dig a little in the aforementioned sites and sift out the good, bad, and ugly.
Blessings and Love!
