A Pastoral Word + Sunday’s Sermon
I hope and trust you are all continuing to lean on the Lord as this pandemic continues. If you’re feeling a little fatigued and frayed, know that you are not alone. Keep pressing on and trusting the Lord, dear ones! His promises are true and he is working for the good of his people.
This Mother’s Day Sunday, I thought it would be helpful to consider the beautiful picture of godly feminine strength sketched out for us in 1 Peter 3:5–6. While this text is about womanhood on Mother’s Day, it’s not just for mothers. I’ve entitled the message, “Sarah’s Brave Daughters.” I hope that all the women (and men!) of CrossPointe will benefit and be challenged and encouraged by our time in this text.
Also, I ask you to watch this short video in which I share a brief pastoral word with you about the recent killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a young African-American man in Brunswick, Ga. I hope you will hear and understand my heart.
Finally, please pray for your elders as we meet to discuss when and how to re-gather as a church. We are meeting this upcoming Monday night and hope to have an update for you soon.
I’m thankful for you, CrossPointe!
