We continue our series, Storyteller, as we examine the Ripple Effect this weekend. If you throw a rock into a pond, you’re going to get more than one ripple. There is a long physics/scientific explanation as to why this occurs but I don’t have to prove it to you; we all know it’s true. The same principle is true in every category of our living.
One decision, one action, can produce a lasting (positive or negative) effect on countless others, even for generations to come.
Jesus often used simple invitations and asked simple questions when he encountered people. Their responses and the answers given…well, we are still experiencing the Ripple Effect some 2,000 years later. This is the last weekend for worship before the Single Greatest Experience in all of human history…EASTER! The Ripple of HOPE and LOVE still radiates out today.
God has chosen you (us) to play an important role in continuing the wave…by extending simple invitations. The “Life Story” video this weekend is an inspiring example of what the Lord can do with ONE SIMPLE INVITATION.
I can hardly wait to worship with you this weekend, Pastor Ken
The date - February 22. The year - 1980. It was a classic David vs. Goliath, Good vs. Evil, “seemingly impossible” battle, played out on the worldwide stage. Some call what took place…a Miracle.
What is a miracle? Do miracles still happen today, or did they only exist in Bible times? Am I ever an actual participant in miracles, or resigned to be a constant observer from a distance?
These are some of the questions we will tackle this weekend at Cypress. Spoiler alert...miracles still happen today. I will be sharing a MIRACLE STORY involving a husband, a wife and their God. Trust me, it will speak to your heart.
If you’ve ever longed for a miracle…be here this weekend! Pastor Ken
While Serena and I were eating dinner in South Beach this past week, we saw a lot of “interesting” people walk by, plus a Lamborghini and several Bentleys (it’s a different world down there). My “people watching” hobby kicked into overdrive. As I watched the most eclectic mass of humanity make their way past our table, I was reminded once again…EVERY PERSON HAS A STORY. They are coming from something or somewhere, heading toward something or somewhere else. There are not simply destinations in life; there are seasons and stages of life. I wanted to ask…Where do you live? Are you happy with life? Do you sense God-given passion and purpose in your living? You look sad…are you okay?
Every person you see today, every person you work with, every person at the grocery store, gas station and restaurant, or in your class or neighborhood…EVERY PERSON you encounter HAS A STORY.
This weekend, we continue our STORYTELLER series by looking at Success after Failure. How can something Good come after something Bad has happened?
It’s interesting how many great “heroes” of our faith were used greatly by the Lord after personal failure, or life’s seemingly “Knock Out Punch.”
I am very excited about our new series, Storyteller, which begins this weekend. Si, from Duck Dynasty, reminded us in the season premiere that every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. Lucky for us, our life story still has chapters to be written! No matter how good, or not so good, the chapters of our life story have been to this point, we can finish strong.
This weekend, we will be learning how to process and work through something we all have faced in life…BETRAYAL. If you could use an incredible real-life story of HOPE, and encouragement with Biblical Next Steps to use in your life story, then come ready! This would be a great weekend to invite a friend.
