There are themes that resonate with my heart. Themes that come up over and over again in my preaching as I, like most preachers, gravitate to those texts that speak to me and the community of faith that I serve. One of those themes is the power of God to change the world, and the power of a congregation to impact its community. In the words of Craig Groeschel in order to "reach the people nobody else is reaching we have to do things nobody else is doing." Here is a video where he challenges us in the church to get "IT."
This is good stuff for the leaders of St. Paul United Methodist Church!
