Sunday Stillness – A Joint Service in the Park

Sunday Stillness – A Joint Service in the Park

Joint-service-in-Park

I am sure you are like me – so much to do during the summer, but all good. Between family visits, gardening, picking vegetables, boating, and walks, there isn’t much time for the computer. And that’s probably a good thing. We need to get out and enjoy this fantastic summer weather – it is brief here in Canada.

This Sunday all of our protestant churches in our small town will get together in the park for a Sizzlin’ Summer Service. This is our 8th season. Each of the pastors/ministers takes part – music, children’s story, message, and I can’t remember what else. Each church also has a job. We pray for good weather and as far as I can remember we have only been inside one year. We have five churches involved (as I said we live in a small town).

Praying that everyone is enjoying their times with family and friends in the out-of-doors.

Psalms 133:1  Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!


1 Corinthians 1:10 I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.

This joint service with the churches might seem unusual to you but we are a part of the town family. I love this hymn “Part of the Family”. Let’s join together in unity and praise the Lord.

Sunday Stillness – How to Be Careful

Sunday Stillness – How to Be Careful

Be-careful---ladybug-web

Watercolour pencil and ink, Janis Cox 2015

The ladybug can teach us many things. Just the term “lady” reminds us to watch how we act, speak and think. How do we treat others? What comes out of our mouths? We know the term lady but here is a definition from a dictionary:

a woman who is refined, polite, and well-spoken:

And for the men reading this post – are you acting as gentlemen?

Here is a definition of gentleman:

a civilized, educated, sensitive, or well-mannered man:

But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect (1 Peter 3:15, NIV).

Be careful, then, how you live
Be wise,
Be filled with the Spirit
Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs
Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of the light (selected passages from Ephesians 5).

Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it (Ephesians 5:, MSG).

Does this mean for women to act as ladies (Proverbs 31) and men to act as gentlemen?

I think so. What are your thoughts?

Sunday Stillness – A New Adventure

 

Sunday Stillness – A New Adventure

Logo-HopeStreamRadio

In February I signed up as a contributor for a new online radio station called Hope Stream Radio. I would love you to visit us and listen to some of the programming. I contribute each Tuesday and that podcast is usually repeated on Saturdays.

All of my podcasts can be found on the Hope Stream Radio site, under my name and my program name Growing Through God’s Word. I have also added this to my menu at the top of my page.

It has been a learning experience – learning new technology, learning to project my voice, to use expression, and to tell stories about myself.

Here is their Vision Statement:

HopeStreamRadio is a Christian Internet Radio Station that provides daily programming to English‑speaking Christians around the world to encourage them in their relationship with the Lord and inform them about the work God is doing around the world.

Here is one I did called The Holy Spirit Teaches Me. I hope you enjoy it.
