Tonight was our church’s Annual Charge Conference. We gathered to celebrate the blessings of 2012 and prepare for 2013. New administration was submitted and Lay Speakers (yours truly) were approved. We sang some of my favorite hymns and heard a great sermon by our District Superintendent. He referenced a verse I came to know and love when I was in high school. His point was so striking that I’m offering a second short post tonight just to share it with you.
In Exodus 34, Moses returns from Mt. Sinai after receiving the 10 Commandments. The people are stuck by the fact that Moses’ face is radiant. They looked at him and knew who he was, what he was, and they were drawn to him.
When people look at you, what do they think?
Are people drawn to you?
Do they ask why you are the way you are?
What are you the poster child for?
