Welcome to
Mt. Vernon Community Presbyterian Church

THE PASTOR'S KEYBOARD

     Let me begin with one more “thank you” to the member of our church who purchased 100 copies of “Unto the Hills” by Billy Graham for distribution to our members as Christmas gifts.  I have received numerous requests to pass along gratitude for this very kind and thoughtful donation.

     Occasionally I get asked a question something like this: “How do you decide what to preach?”  The answer is hard to explain but generally I wait until the Lord tells me.  I almost always preach in “series.”  i.e. I try not to get into a situation where I am having to figure something out every week.  Why am I telling you this?  Well for the past several weeks I have been unsure what to preach on in 2018.  But the answer came a few days ago.  I’m going to spend the year preaching through “Unto the Hills.” 

      So, how will this work?  Basically on any given Sunday I will choose one of the upcoming devotions and use that text for a sermon.  My hope is that it will encourage all of us to stay up with the book.  I hope you have one!  If not I’m afraid they are all gone but they are easily obtained.  You can go to Amazon or if you want a used copy for about $4.00 go to https://www.thriftbooks.com/   If you don’t know what either of those means… ask a 6 year old.  I know… drives me crazy too.

     I have always been fascinated by this question:  Why don’t we do things that we know are good for us?  Things like; eat better, or exercise, or get a hobby.  Most of us would agree that a regular devotional time is probably a good idea… and yet.

     Well let’s try it this year.  I’ll do the best I can to help encourage… you just need to set aside the 5 minutes a day that it will take to get you started.

     So Sunday the 21st of January… here we go.
