Weekly Words - 9/22/17

Happy Autumn Everyone!

I trust this week has been good for you in different ways. You have been in my thoughts and prayers. FBCD is a good place to be and I’m encouraged by the ongoing energy and enthusiasm that is ever evolving. Sometimes, when so much negative news and reality can overtake the news headlines and social media sites, it’s hard to appreciate the good that is happening around us.

Last week I participated in a fund-raiser for a local non-profit that supports women and men who are seeking to transition from being homeless to being housed. In sharing her testimony, one of the program participants, Brenda, said, “You forget there are so many good [things] in the world when what we see seems so bad."

There is much good happening at 1373 Grant Street.

Beginning this Sunday, from 9-9:50 in Fellowship Hall, we will begin a scripture study series called, “Acting Out: A Study Through the Book of Acts.” This will be a 9-week series and is designed so that if you miss a week or two, or can only come for a few sessions, you’ll fit in just fine. Please consider joining me as we explore together how the faith we profess can be lived out through the lives of every day folk like ourselves! You’ll be glad you did.

Whether for the scripture study series or for worship, I hope to see you this Sunday!

Thank you as always for being the people you are. Together, we are doing far more than any one of us could do on our own.

With love and admiration,

First Baptist Church of Denver is a welcoming and affirming, inclusive Christian community that embraces diversity, engages personal faith, and serves with compassion.
