The second installment on my teaching on the temple. This is just about the structure. There is so much more when we dive into what went on there in the ritual and practice of the people through the feasts. Stay tuned for those teachings in the future.
I have always been intrigued by why some of the weirder stories are in the Bible. Though they are usually quite entertaining, they are not always as easy to apply to your life. I am really excited about this series we are starting this week called iLife where we are going to take some of these stories and allow God to help us apply them to our lives so that we can grow closer to him. The four topics are: Forgiveness, Worship, Prayer, and Mission. Here's the preview video we made for it. I think it turned out really well.
The Book of Everyday Prayer is for anyone looking to have deeper conversations with God in a busy world. It contains a seven-day read-along guide for praying the hours—dawn, morning, midday, afternoon, evening, and midnight. Within each prayer you'll find Scripture and even song lyrics to help you focus your mind and heart on God. Also included in the book are over 30 prayers for every occasion from cleaning your room to taking a test to fighting with a friend.
