A Way with Words

Do you have a way with words? Do you always know the right thing to say or do you always feel tongue-tied? Today Jennifer talked about how she feels our words to God sometimes don't seem as meaningful. She challenges us to pay attention to the words we use to worship God and to live out those words in our actions as well.

What are your favorite words you use to worship God? Leave a comment and share.

Easter and the Lord's Supper

Happy Easter!

Is the Lord's Supper a meaningful time for you? Maybe it is. Maybe it's awkward or odd or boring. If Communion is more confusing than special, I encourage you to read "What's Up with the Lord's Supper" in ENCOUNTER and consider what that bite of bread and drink of juice is all about.

What does the Lord’s Supper mean to you? Please leave a comment and share what's on your mind.

Talking to God

This week in ENCOUNTER is all about prayer. We're looking at what prayer is, what prayer isn't, and different ways people pray.

So what about you? How do you pray? What ways work best for you? When do you pray best (mornings, while you're jogging or driving, before you go to bed, during study hall)?

Leave a comment and share how you talk to God.
