SERMON: May 22, 2016 “As for me and my House…..” Part 1
Today Pastor Dave spoke from Joshua 24:14-15 where “but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” In Matthew 6:24 we know that we cannot serve two masters as we will end up loving one and despising the other. So the question is are we serving the Lord or are we serving the church? Next, Pastor Dave takes a quote from T. S. Eliot “All I know of concentration is that if you are interested enough, and care enough, then you will concentrate.” And brought up three points 1. We have lost our attentiveness to the community: meaning that we only look to events of the community of what we care about, and therefore disregard the other events. 2. We have lost our experience of community meaning that we will only engage in what we are interested in and 3. We have lost our apprenticeship in the community meaning that the young adults are no longer interested in the clubs of the town that exist today and therefore there is no one to train to be active in these clubs. Pastor Dave challenges us to reach out to the community and care and be attentive to our community.
