This morning at church, we commissioned seven members of our church to attend local licensed pastor school this week. Several of them are good friends of ours. That is amazing, I think, for our church (weekly attendance just shy of the 700 mark) to have seven people who are feeling a call on their lives to take this big step. God is moving in awesome ways amongst our congregation. Please pray for all of those who are attending this school this week that they will be blessed and continue to discern God's call for their futures.
The sermon this morning was a good reminder for me that I need more quiet time with God. I need to keep that as a discipline. I treasure whatever quiet time of solitude I can carve out of a day. Usually it is in the early morning hours. The problem is that all too often I let that turn into email and preparing-for-the-day time instead of quiet times of worship and devotion.
