This week Bishop Richard H. and Reverend Dawn Marie Johnson joined us to minister at GLBC.
Bishop Richard H. and Reverend Dawn Marie Johnson have been engaged in full-time ministry throughout the United States and Canada since 1994.
For almost ten of those years, Richard, Dawn, and their kids lived full-time in a fifth-wheel trailer in church parking lots all over North America.
By the time they came off the road in 2005, they had ministered in thirty-eight states and four Canadian provinces, comforting and encouraging hurting people in prisons, jails, juvenile detention centers, residential re-entry programs, churches, home fellowships, and many other venues. 
In January of 2005, Richard and Dawn started Christian Formation Ministries, Inc. (CFM), in New Albany, Indiana.

 

Esther was just a captive Jewish girl and yet she changed the history of the Jewish people by listening and being willing to do something that seemed difficult at the time. This week, Pastor Andrew talks about that and how your place in history could be affected by your actions.

This week Pastor Andrew talks about having a "New Outlook" I always helps to look at things from a different point of view and in this case we want to change our outlook to God's outlook!

Try me, and know my anxieties;
And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

 

 This week Pastor Andrew spoke on forgiveness not just God's forgiving us but the more difficult task of us forgiving each other. Listen and learn how we can do that!

Jesus said to him, "I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.

It has been said that God is the God of second chances. We hear so many stories in the bible of people like David and Peter and so many more whom God allowed a second chance. We all need those at times and this week Pastor Andrew will talk about them.

Romans 2:4
Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and long-suffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

This week Pastor Andrew talked about the options we have in front of us to do what is right or to do what is wrong. We have to option of choosing which way we will turn. Listen as Pastor Andrew looks at ways to help us choose the right way

Proverbs 21:2-3
 
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the hearts.
 
To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

This week Pastor Chris Charette joins us. Listen to him as he speaks about "Blessed is the Man" from Psalm 1

Psalm 1:1-6

1Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

 Jesus told his disciples that they were called to be a witness both in Jerusalem, Judea and to the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). Listen  as this week Pastor Andrew talked about being a witness.

Proverbs 14:5 A faithful witness does not lie, but a false witness will utter lies.

This week Pastor Andrew talks about how the Lord will help us and how we can commemorate those times.

 

I Samuel 7:12
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen, and called its name Ebenezer, saying, "Thus far the LORD has helped us."
