Welcome to LIFESPARKS!
Of the many hats a pastor is required to wear, the communicator hat seems to be at the top of the list. We are constantly trying to convey a point, or explore a feeling or emotion. By holy charge, we are required to deliver the “Good News”, but we must also talk about issues that are tough to stomach. These issues can be complex and require a lot of time. Oftentimes, I can’t fully explore an issue during a morning worship service. This new digital pulpit affords me the opportunity to spend a little more time communicating with you. In a sense I can linger on a point. It actually creates a virtual sanctuary.
Often we feel as though there is a pause in the fellowship when a worship service ends. This website is a unique opportunity to change that notion. This virtual place is a way to stay connected and informed. It creates another forum for existing members to learn more about the church, its activities and the members. Not only can we stay connected, but we have the unique opportunity to reach out to neighbors and friends who may never show up in our sanctuary. And because it’s a blog, not only can I talk to you, but you can talk back to me! Can I get an Amen?!
I am mighty excited about the possibilities of this blog. It’s just another way to prove to everyone that we are in fact The friendliest church from the parking lot to the (virtual) pulpit!
