Hello and welcome back to our Podcast community that is growing forward in Christ.  If this is your first time to be with me, I am so thankful for you.  If you are a consistent community member, then you know you are loved and valued as you join me in sharing your thoughts and input about these episodes.

This week and next week I’m having a very special guest on our Podcast: Rev. Jim Burt, who serves as the Director of Ministry Development with Proactive Ministries.  Jim has served as a pastor of churches in the Midwest USA for 25 years before joining our Staff 7 years ago.  He works very closely with our ministry and leads many of our teaching weekends across America.

Our topic for this week and next week is an exciting and relevant one for each of us as we enter the season of Advent and Christmas:


Twelve Ways We Can Be Encouragers

This week we will be addressing the first six:  

  1. By sharing the Scriptures: (Romans 15:4-5)
  2. By our spoken words (Proverbs 16:24)
  3. By writing! (That’s what God did in giving us the Holy Bible)
  4. By acts of kindness and self-sacrifice (John 15:13)
  5. By expressing thankfulness and appreciation to a person (Philippians 1:3)
  6. By prayer (Philippians 1:4-6)

Again thank you so much for being a part of our community and we are blessed to share this time together.  Why not share this Episode with your family, friends, members of your small group, your congregational leaders, your pastor or anyone whom you wish to bless.  You can simply send them a note of kindness and joy including the LINK to the podcast for them to listen:

As always it is a great blessing to hear from any one of you with your comments, emails, phone calls, voicemails right off this page (upper right side at the button…), and how ever you choose to communicate with me.  See the list of ways below:
