Summer vacations are over and fall is upon us. As we move into a new season, it’s a good time to slow down and reflect on our life experiences so far this year. Hence, the theme for this issue of Press On! Webzine is reflection.
The attendees at First Baptist Church of Glenarden’s Bible study went on a 61-day fast a few months ago. The 41-day surrender fast was to consciously yield our will to God and the remaining 21 days was a financial fast. Since I am pretty frugal, going through Michelle Singletary’s “The 21-Day Financial Fast” (www.michellesingletary.com) set me back on course. But what I found out about myself during Dr. Celeste Owens, “41-day Surrender Fast,” (www.surrenderfast.com) sort of shocked me. You can read about it in “My Addiction.”
But what about when others think they can see your interior by your exterior? In the article, “My Testimony – Sizing Folks Up,” I discuss a sermon that Pastor John K. Jenkins, Sr., preached, and my experience in being negatively sized up. “Music Has Meaning – Lift Him Up,” discusses the importance of every aspect of a church service. And “Twice a Child” reflects on how we can handle our parents’ second childhood.
