Are you listening to too much noise?

After a recent message, someone asked me asked me if I was against meditation. Not at all! I am pro-meditation.

In fact, I don’t think you can live an effective Christian life without meditating…

“Prayer is asking God to incarnate, to get dirty in your life. Yes, the eternal God scrubs floors. For sure we know he washes feet. So take Jesus at his word. Ask him. Tell him what you want. Get dirty. Write out your prayer requests; don’t mindlessly drift through life on the American narcotic of busyness. If you try to seize the day, the day will eventually break you. Seize the corner of his garment and don’t let go until he blesses you. He will reshape the day.” 

– Paul E. Miller, A Praying Life

“Quick. What is, by far, God’s most frequent command? 

The usual suspects include “Do not commit adultery,” “Have no other gods before me,” and “Love one another.”

“The next group includes whatever commands you know you have violated, in which case they only feel as if they appear on every page of Scripture.  The actual answer is “Do not be afraid.”

A Letter from a Wuhan Pastor, Podcast 1

Liberty Church Podcast #1
A Letter from a Wuhan Pastor

This is the first audio podcast (6:55 min.) from Liberty Church of Cosby during these days of social-distancing because of the COVID-19 virus.

Churches are increasing their online presence through audio and video, and we are glad to do the same.

This audio includes an open letter from a pastor in the Wuhan province of China. It is dated January 23, 2020 with encouraging words from someone living in the midst of what we are beginning to experience in America.

My hope is that we can experience the same comfort and hope he writes so eloquently about.

We look forward to being together very soon. Until then, we want to keep in touch with our church folks and invite you to let us know how you are doing.
