SEPTEMBER 19 | THE PRACTICE OF SERVING | Psalm 100
When we walk with our eyes open and our head up, we see that there are people all around us who we can bless. Serving others is not a hard slog, but rather a joyous and energizing experience, once you know how to practice it.
UPCOMING SERMON SERIES
BIG LITTLE WORDS
Conjunctions are used to connect two important ideas or phrases. They are tiny, little words BUT they hold great value. Coordinating conjunctions joining items of equal importance and subordinating conjunctions reduces the importance of one clause, so that a reader understands which of two ideas is more important. Selective attention to conjunctions can reveal a greater truth in the inspired Word of God.
