Sunday Extra – April 23rd, 2023
Some seasons of our lives, we need just a little more Easter. The weeks following Resurrection Sunday are historically called Eastertide. And today Jeff Marian of Prince of Peace Church in Burnsville, Minnesota, shares our Sunday Extra Easter-themed message. A musical piece concludes the sermon, and we hope you will enjoy letting the message and music wash over you. LFM has partnered with Jeff in the past. He participated in a Revitalize training with Jim Singleton and Kevin Ford to help focus his congregation as they moved forward.
Thriving During Transitions
Today let’s pray for Jeff and Prince of Peace for their upcoming transitions. They are in the process of searching for their next lead pastor as Jeff follows the Lord into the next season of his life. May they all thrive under the direction of Jesus as they trust Him and make adjustments.
Let’s also pray for Leighton Ford today as Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, hosts Places Along the Way: Celebrating the Art and Legacy of Leighton Ford this afternoon.
Places Along the Way features dozens of Leighton’s watercolors and celebrates his legacy as an artist, mentor, and leader, including his role as a long-time board member of Gordon-Conwell. The program will include an interview with Leighton, readings from his forthcoming book of poetry, reflections from a few artists and leaders who have journeyed with Leighton along the way, and an opportunity to learn about the emerging Leighton Ford Center for Theology, the Arts, and Gospel Witness.
