Pastor Points: Increasing God's Power in Your Life
The Apostle Paul wrote, in I Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” When you find ways to rejoice, pray, and give thanks, it increases God’s power in your life. The more open you are to God, the more God can heal you spiritually, and then that spiritual healing may accelerate physical or mental healing, if that is God’s will for you.
On all Thursdays in June, at 1:30-3 p.m. and 6-7:30 p.m. I will be leading a small group discussion series on healing prayer, based on a book entitled, Stretch Out Your Hand: Exploring Healing Prayer, by Tilda Norberg and Robert Webber (Upper Room Books:2008.) Copies of the book are free and available now in my office. On October 6 from 2-5 p.m. one of the book’s authors, Reverend Norberg, a psychotherapist and United Methodist minister, will speak at our church about achieving spiritual health and discuss Jesus’ ministry of healing. Her presentation will be sponsored by the CHES churches. Let me know if you would like to attend either the afternoon or the evening series and the author talk. Registration will be limited, with Boards of Deacons of the CHES congregations receiving first priority. I hope to see you there!
