CALLING ALL OSL MEMBERS & FRIENDS
As we continue our search for a new pastor,
let us meditate on His Word & Pray!
Let us pray:
Prayer for Spiritual Strength
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,
from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,
that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—
that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth
and length and height and depth,
and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge,
that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
Let us meditate on these passages:
1 John 4:1-7
Ask these questions:
1. What is God saying about His call
to mission & ministry?
2. What insights come from this passage
regarding the ministry of the congregation?
3. What insights come from this passage
regarding the ministry of the ordained pastor?
4. How am I being challenged by this
passage to live and serve differently?
5. In light of this passage, how might ministry
in the NALC be renewed and restored?
Lead us, guide us and bless us Lord!
