“the word is out”
I love the book of 1 Thessalonians, and I love that my husband is teaching through this book in this series, Our Glory and Joy.
This weekend my husband preached a message that recharged us and challenged us in how we are leaving our mark in the lives around us. Learning from the Church in Thessalonica was so powerful and I’m so excited for this series!
My husband also gave us homework to read Acts 16 and 17, and he also recommended a great book that I just started and it’s incredible! Switch by Chip and Dan Heath. When my husband suggests a book, I would definitely take note of it and read it. He’s such an incredible reader (which is one of the reasons why he’s such a great leader!) so you know it’s really good when he mentions it!
We learned four powerful connections:
+ Correction & Affirmation – who in your life can you speak life into this week?
“Wise leaders always praise what they want to see repeated.”
+ Communication & Demonstration – follow your leader as they follow Christ
“live out your faith and give others an example to follow.”
+ Tribulation & Jubilation
“Take the joy with the trouble and the trouble with the joy.”
+ Reception & Transmission – the Thessalonians didn’t just take in, they gave out
“See fire and send fire.”
And what a party it was this weekend! And students! Be sure to sign up for MVMNT Camp!
