Countdown to Easter 14

The University of Northern Iowa once offered a general art course that included a most unusual exercise. The teacher brought to class a shopping bag filled with lemons and gave a lemon to each class member. The assignment was for the student to keep his lemon with him day and night--smelling, handling, examining it. Next class period, without warning, students were told to put their lemons back in the bag. Then each was asked to find his lemon. Surprisingly, most did so without difficulty.
The groundwork of intimacy with God is often established through
the daily disciplines we engage. Want to know God? Spend time with Him.

Reflection: When do you feel most intimate with Christ?
What can you do to cultivate this connection with Christ on a daily basis?
Like the lemon assignment given to the students what are some ways you can develop an awareness of Christ throughout your day?

As you gather to worship God today at church, do so with an attitude of expectation that you are going to encounter God in a personal way through singing praises, the study of God’s word through your pastor’s message  and fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ. 

Your pastor and partner in ministry,
