Compassion Week – Day 4 Encouragement

October 22, 2009


IMG_0245Dear Friend,

“Lord, to those who hunger, give bread. And to those who have bread, give the hunger for justice.” Latin American Prayer

As you start a new day on a hungry stomach, what is the hunger that God is stirring in your soul?

What are you really hungry for as you near the end of this challenge?

We only have 5 meals left until we cross the finish line. I wonder what will be different as we go back to our routines. I wonder what God is up to. I know He is working in each of us individually, in our families, and in our church. I love the promise God gives us in Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” I hope you will create some space, even a moment, in your schedule today to connect with God and pay attention to the hunger stirring in you.

Come ready to share your experience this week at High Attendance Sunday this Sunday. I have been dreaming for some time and thinking about what Eastside would look like if everyone showed up on the same Sunday. Join us as we Celebrate, Rejoice, Praise The Lord through worship, observing The Lord’s Supper, and sharing testimonies.  

In Gratitude,

Pastor Virgil

P.S. If you have a story or example of what God is doing in you or in someone you know through this challenge, please pass it along! I would love to hear about it!
