Though our poor spelling is a rather clever idea, some of you might be wondering about Psummer Psalms and all the different faces we’ve seen teaching the past few Sundays.
Psummer Psalms has been a running tradition at The Sanctuary for a few years now.
For those of you new to the church, Psummer Psalms is a teaching series where different “voices”, who you don’t normally hear on a Sunday morning, teach from the book of Psalms.
Psummer Psalms isn’t just something we do to give Pastor Marty a break from his weekly sermon preparation, (though this is arguably a happy side-effect) but it also gives our church a chance to hear a message from another voice within our Sanctuary community.
“Why hear from these other voices?” you might ask.
In 1 Corinthians 12 the apostle Paul describes the church as the Body of Christ, with every person working differently, but serving an important function, all working together.
Paul says that while the eye is helpful to see, and the ear helpful to hear, there are also other parts that make a healthy body besides eyes and ears.
A body made of nothing but eyes or ears will not be able to walk, eat, or speak. It is only when you have the many different parts working together, that we have a healthy and functional body.
Simply put, there are many different types of people that fill our congregation, and sometimes it is helpful to hear other voices share from their hearts, and their experiences.
Now several weeks into Psummer Psalms we have already heard from Pastor Rachel, Foursquare President Glenn Burris, Bob Bae, and we are excited to hear from many others!
Make sure to join us in the coming weeks to hear these wonderful voices, that we might continue to grow into Christ’s image together.
For years my understanding of Sabbath was to sit at home, no work, no fun, read and pray all day...so of course, I told myself, “I can’t do that!” …who could?!
I enjoy going on a stroll in our neighborhood, especially during the morning hours in springtime. It’s peaceful and the outside air so refreshing. I’ve read in different fitness articles to “walk like you’re in a hurry” in order to...
I LOVE dessert, I especially love ice cream. It started when I was a kid and my parents started rewarding us for a good report card, or a high grade on a difficult test, or to celebrate milestones in our lives.
All it takes is water! Water makes growth happen and the green hillsides taking shape all over our valley are pure evidence of that.
Have you been to “THAT” bakery and tasted their brownies? Don’t get me wrong there are all kinds of breads and pastries, cookies, croissants, pies, and cakes out there… but brownies, this is what the public really wants!
The Santa Clarita Valley is part of an Arbor Day Foundation movement called Tree City USA, and I’m glad!
Do you remember what you were doing four to five years ago? In 2012 what were you considering and contending for? What was consuming you?
Recently, I was reading the scheduled Growth Journal verses in my Bible. It was the account of God telling Noah to build the ark in Genesis 6.
We were driving along the 5 Freeway on a rainy Tuesday when Bob remarked, “She won’t know who you are. Sometimes she doesn’t recognize her own children. She has moments when she is quiet and times when she’s more talkative. It all depends.”
One day the disciples asked Jesus how to pray—which is hilarious when you think about it: they were talking with Jesus (aka God) asking him, ‘How should we talk with you?’
Remarkably, Jesus gives them the lay of land, a characteristic of How Things Work.
Here’s how it works, fellas: be stubborn, mule-headed and unstoppable in pursuing what you want. Be SHAMELESSLY PERSISTENT.
