Yesterday I mentioned that one of the ways Molly and I are seeking to draw near to Jesus this Advent season is by committing ourselves to one day per week of fasting and prayer. For us, the best day works out to be Tuesday. We started last week and will continue until Christmas.
If you’d like to join with us in this endeavor, be sure to check out this helpful article by Dr. Bill Bright, who completed five 40-day fasts in his lifetime.
In yesterday’s sermon, I mentioned a young pastor from Texas, Matt Chandler, who recently had an unexpected seizure and was diagnosed with tumor on his right frontal lobe. He had surgery this past Friday (all reports sound like it has gone well), and he recorded a video for his church family prior to the surgery. It’s a wonderful example of how to approach this kind of trial.
