Dear Metro East Ministry Family,

Prayerfully this finds you having had a great start to your week. Already great seeing God answer our prayers (yesterday) with Baby Marc's temperature going down (104 degree) after another open heart surgery. Please continue to take Monday's as our days to pray for one another/ our families/ friends/ neighbors.

A scripture that has taken on more meaning in my own personal life over the past year has been:


A.D. The Bible Continues

Colossians 4:6;
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, So that you may know how to answer everyone.

We get so busy with life, bills, schedule, work, activities, kids, situations………. that I fear we rarely take the time to slow down & have CONVERSATIONS. Not just put it off another day, suppress what you're feeling another day, avoid that person another day, continue to multiply kisses another day, unsure on how to approach the situation you're being faced with another day…………… but genuinely start having CONVERSATIONS about these things today. CONVERSATIONS full of grace, seasoned with salt………. Not seeking to judge, accuse, threaten, disrespect but just talk, discuss, seek to understand, be full of humility & love. That to me is full of grace. The soil of humility & grace is where greatness is found. Jesus was a man who came full of grace & truth (John 1:14;).

I enjoyed Spring Break last week and had some great CONVERSATIONS. I spoke with a couple friends of mine I love dearly & just started having a CONVERSATION about where each of us is at spiritually, convictions about the body, our past, the present & our families. Some great time!! I enjoyed having a CONVERSATION with one of my son's about life, the realities of sex in our world that he is surrounded by, what he see's & hears at school as well as his future. Some great time with my son not on his smart phone, playing video games or watching TV but actually have a CONVERSATION…….. Let's begin to have CONVERSATIONS and peel back the layers in our lives as we enjoy this life God has blessed us with today.

This past Sunday felt good to start our FPU Class – "Momentum – building God's Kingdom debt free". Please come join us to enjoy 1 or 2 of the classes free. You can see all info. & the cost to join on our web site

• Society and media today is about SELF......
• Gratifying yourself, your desires no matter what the cost.
