This space has its roots in the history of how this congregation came to be - a group of Jesus followers inviting others to come and see Christ and live that faith out together. Once a month, we will bring forth a devotional from years gone by. Today we re-member (put together again in our minds) from thirty years ago in the Lenten Devotional of 1984 - March 24th to be precise:
"What did you say?" I've said that often to my children and to David when I suddenly realized that one of them was talking to me and I hadn't been listening. I am often preoccupied with my own thoughts and have to be prodded to give my attention.
Sometimes I act as if I have to approach God in the same way others must approach me. I pray in order to get His attention so that He will be aware of my concerns, or needs, or difficulties and will focus on my problems.
