Dear First Pres,

 I took a walk today during the lunch hour and it was windy. It reminded me of my college days in Nebraska where it always seemed to be windy. But here, in the Valley, a windy day seems rare. It got me thinking about my favorite Keith Green song, "Rushing Wind." Have you heard it? Keith sings, "Rushing wind blow through this temple, blowing out the dust within. Come and breathe your breath upon me; I've been born again."

Dear First Pres,

Today is the first of four very special days in the life of the church: Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and Resurrection Sunday. I encourage you to take some special time each day in prayer and worship to focus your heart on the incredibly good news of Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. One of the special ways you can do that is by participating with your church family in worship and prayer.

Dear First Pres,

For the past few weeks, I’ve been including some of the great content we heard from Rev. Ken Priddy during the Church Vitality Weekend in my sermons. I’m doing this because I don’t want us to forget the stuff we heard. Plus, I’m trying to share that great stuff with many of our folks who couldn’t join us for the weekend seminar.

Dear First Pres, 

     I am really grateful for the many folks who came out on Friday and Saturday for the Church Vitality seminar with Rev. Dr. Ken Priddy. It certainly is the buzz right now among us who were there. Ken had some really important things for us to consider as we work to be a church on mission with Jesus (to seek and to save the lost).  I think the material he presented to us will have a lasting impact at FPC Fresno. 


Engaging together in Christ's work of making disciples for the redeeming transformation of our city and world.
