Pastor’s Corner for Sunday, August 18, 2019 – Praise by the Pool

This Sunday 8am Worship is at Shiloh,  10am Worship is at Rose Park for Praise by the Pool
People of Shiloh,

In August, I’m inviting you to participate in a One Month Challenge a practice of picking up new habits, and leaving behind unhelpful ones.  I invite you to go to print the challenge card or get one at church the next two Sundays. Then, put it somewhere you will see it and spend just a bit of time each day on your personal journey with God.  It will take commitment to build the habits, but when have we shied away from doing something hard. 
I find that for me new practices are hard to get going, I have to be honest I have only done our one-month challenge 1-3 days a week.  Grace in practice means doing the best you can and growing from there.  I encourage you this week to take up the challenge if you have not had a chance, and see what it does for you personally. Learning to let go of things that don’t help us, pick up new habits, ask for help, and being grateful can transform how we see God in our daily life.  Give yourself a moment to try and pick up the practice one more time this week.
Wherever summer has taken or will take you, I hope you will spend some part of it with us.  We’ve planned some exciting events and our quality worship experiences will continue throughout August and please mark your calendar for our Welcome Home Sunday, September 8.  Thank you again for being a part of this church family and for the gifts you’ve already given.  Each and every person adds something important to who we are.
Enthusiastic Peace, 

Pastor Tyler
