Do you ever speak to the Women in your Church?

We have just begun a new preaching series from the book of Exodus called, Follow ME . The focus of the series is on God and His leadership/ character.

Last Sunday I preach at our 7pm congregation on Exodus 1-2. One of the things that I spoke of was the courageous women that we see in the text. Women who feared God, for example the midwives, Moses mother, Miriam, the Pharaohs daughter (although it is not clear if her motivation was the fear of God).

I then spoke directly to the women in our church and encouraged them to be fear God and be courageous. What has been interesting is that a number of women have spoken about how moving it was to be spoken to directly as women.

Most of the time I speak more generically – just wondering what your experience has been?

It's not that I don't care on purpose...

I have been looking at the McCrindle Research web site and I noticed on the flash banner across the top these words":

"It's not that I don't care on purpose... it's just that I don't care." Stuart age 17.

That sums up what I hear people say about Christianity and what I hear some Christians say about having grace filled conversations with others.

Just wondering what you think? Is this your experience? What's the way forward?

Trying Something New

This is a zooming presentation-very easy to put together. Click the links above if you want the site and a better view.

What do you think of using presentation tools with sermons? -Is it a question of how many people you are preaching to?
