"Yet a time is coming
and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23

My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.

Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.

Daddy let me be secure in You only!

PLEASE PRAY


People just will not give up!

In a way it can be a good thing, for us who have been abused and want to regain our freedom! We have purpose, we want to overcome and we want our life back!

What I am getting to, which is personally affecting me and many others locally, is that my church is going through a major struggle which WILL be resolved tomorrow with another vote from the congregation to keep our new pastor.

Still, the opposition will NOT give up their fight!! With a last ditch effort to remove him as our pastor (one more letter campaign to the congregation with untrue words was received) they continue to dishonor the man of God who was voted in the first time a few months earlier, and want him removed!

I ask for prayer for these few dissentients who are continually trying to cause an upheaval in my church that their eyes and hearts will TRULY be open to THE TRUTH!

  10. I went to a church years ago and this kind of turmoil started to brew. People took sides. The pastor remained, but a large group splintered off to begin a new church led by Mr. Wrong who became Pastor Wrong. These people in the new Wrong church loved God. When Pastor Wrong's wife became pregnant, Pastor Wrong got to thinking that his wife was going to birth nothing but wind - and this would be a sign to all that he was right. As God is my witness, Pastor Wrong and all the people who listened to him waited nine months for the momentous day that wind would blow out of his wife's womb. Boy, was he in for a surprise. When the baby arrived, most people came back to the original church. Sorry for the long comment, but that's how crazy stuff can get. I will pray for your church.

  18. Since a "church" is really the people, the peeps, the community, it figures that the "church" will vote a "group"
    conscience.

  22. *sigh* sounds like a bunch of worthless bullshit to me. But then what do I know, I have gone beyond the need for structures that constrict the freedom of being with that spirit which created all.

    Be Well Kiddo and be grounded in your own faith.

  23. JBR- might be a double comment as not sure the first one went through. Just saying how sad it is that every town has twenty churches. Believers just can't seem to get along. Hope things work out. ~rick
