Do you remember names? (sermon series title prize still up for grabs)

Do you have problems remembering names? Sometimes I'm really good at it and other times I feel like dementia is setting in. How about you? Anyway, yesterday we started a series that we're adapting from Life Church.tv called, "A.K.A. God." It was a good day and hopefully encouraging to everyone that attended. We were talking about the fact that we can know who God is and what he is like based on who Jesus is and the meaning of His names. In the Old Testament there are lots of names that God is called and it gives you a snapshot of who he is. The one that we talked about this week was...Jehova Rohi...which means, 'the Lord is my Shepherd.' We read Psalm 23 together and talked about how Jehova Rohi (God) provides for us, gives us his peace and he blesses us with his very presence. So out of all the names that you'll remember or forget this week, don't forget the name of the Lord God himself! Remember that he is with you, he will lead you today and he will de-stress your life with his peace. Go ahead, take a minute and call on His name for whatever you need today! By the way, our new series will be chosen by end of this week, so keep the ideas coming!
