What About the Churches About To Close Their Doors

There is no doubt that we are still in an economical slump and our Churches are taking a hit as well. On the flip side, we have numerous churches being planted/starting each week but… We also have numerous Churches closing or thinking of closing their doors weekly also. Churches who wonder how they are going to keep going. I am sure there are many factors that go into a Church “Shutting Down” but the one thing that was really pressing hard on my mind this morning was the Churches that are about to close their doors. So today I am praying for those Churches. That God would revive those Churches to do a work in their community. Just one simple question, What about the Churches about to close their doors..for good?

Keep Pursuing!

Holy Interruptions

I like Holy interruptions, I feel we had one of those in service this morning. One of those times where it was needed just to sing the chorus one more time and focus solely on God. I love those times because it reminds you of who is in charge. I want to continually be open to those Holy interruptions. So much can be done in those few minutes where God takes over and peoples worship is filled with Gods Spirit. Holy interruptions are so intimate and rejuvenating. It is my hope that I am always open and sensitive to those Holy interruptions. I think they are needed, but are lacking in most of our lives and Churches.
