In our lives and in our churches, people like to have things orderly and polished. However, when situations unnerve us, the Holy Spirit is working to build and fortify our faith. That can happen, as long as Jesus is kept at the center of our discussions, our churches and every aspect of our lives.
The third quarter 2016 edition of Black Ministry’s TimeLine newsletter includes individuals’ stories that exemplify Jesus at the center of their lives and how God is glorified as a result. Enjoy reading about:
- Jalian and 10 other youth, members of the Lifehouse Student Ministries at First Lutheran Church, Hot Springs, Ark., participating in social media training offered by Lutheran Youth Fellowship;
- Grace Ridings, sociology major at the University of Michigan, volunteering for one week at a summer camp hosted by Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, New Orleans; and
- Deaconess Dorcel Dowdell, a graduate in the first class of deaconesses from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind., serving Christ in her church (St. Philip Lutheran Church, Toledo, Ohio) and community.
