Twelve Hundred Hearts, Twelve Hundred Voices Strong!

During the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend I had the opportunity to help in leading worship at an event in Panama City, Florida called “Gulf Coast Getaway”. This is a conference that it focused on the spiritual lives of College students from all across the United States. When the opportunity came to help in leading worship there I immediately agreed to going. I felt that God had this set aside as one of my many missions in ministry.

The conference took place at the Edgewater Beach Resort and it started on Friday and ended on Sunday night with a total of 5 Sessions. The Speaker was Don McLaughlin who is a dynamic Preacher and Senior Minister at North Atlanta Church of Christ. This particular weekend was the most powerful/intentional weekend that I’d experienced in a long time. There was a sweet spirit of oneness in the room every time we came together.

“AND” and “&”

alphabetYou may or may not know this but the ampersand (&) was once the 27th letter of the English Alphabet see photo (left) from 1836 text book. Early in the development of the English language two letters “E” and “T,” were commonly combined “et” which meant “and.” Over time the writing of those two letters began to look more and more like what we know today is the “ampersand.”

Even the name “Ampersand” comes from a contracting of the following phrase at the end of the reciting of the alphabet “ x, y, z and per se and.”

If you are still reading after that intro hang with me for a few more lines. I promise there is a spiritual connection or two coming.

What a Change, But What a Great Reward!

The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.” – Genesis 12:1

My dream was always to use my gifts and put them at the service of the Lord in a place where I could develop them to the fullest. I remember my father giving advice to my brothers and to me from an early age to make it a priority in our life to serve the Lord. I also remember that he used those famous words of our Lord Jesus that say: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be given to you.” With this example many times my parents taught us to give everything to serve in the kingdom, and as far as I remember, we never missed food or clothing. Always the Lord’s provision came into our life in one way or another.

There Is More

Have you ever come to a point in your life where you said to yourself, “There has to be more?” There’s an ache and a longing inside you that you can’t quite put into words?

But what is the “more” that you long for? It can’t be just more of the same. It can’t be just more stuff, more money, or more self fulfillment. It can’t be just doing more of what you have been doing. I believe it can only come through knowing God more and discovering more of His plan and purpose in your life. I believe that we don’t have it in us to grab hold of the “more.” It has to come by and through Him. It’s Him. It’s all about Him.

The Season For Giving

Christmas is a season of giving, but at Singing Oaks in many ways the whole year is about giving. In the benevolence ministry over 5300 people were helped with one or more of the following: food, clothing, rent, utilities, fuel, prescriptions, bus passes, bicycles or some other form of assistance. We also pray and share the gospel with as many who are willing to listen. And there are stories, some of which have great impact on those of us involved. So there is a lot of giving but also a lot of receiving. Here are some stories from the last few months.
