The last of our three-part series is on Sanctifying Grace - the grace that makes us holy. I pray that this series has helped you understand a little bit more about the Wesleyan understanding of grace and how it impacts your faith and life.
Come back tomorrow for the outtakes from our day of shooting!

During our "Grace Anatomy" Series at University UMC we shot a three-part video depicting a West Texas Thanksgiving as the openers for each week's message. We showed this video on November 8th. Enjoy!

For this is what the Lord has commanded us: "I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth." (Acts 13:47)
When E. Stanley Jones asked an 82-year-old man, "What's your business?" the man responded, "My business is witnessing for Christ." He then told of his conversion to Christianity (from Buddhism) and his ministry to pray for and evangelize everyone he meets.
It's a good question..."What's your business?"
A profound question when you stop to think about it in terms of our whole selves. We often wrap ourselves up in our job titles or name plates or positions within our respective companies (churches). But how often do we stop to consider how our Christian calling plays a role in our business? Or perhaps should be our business?
Why is it our natural tendency to think of what we can do ourselves before we think of about what God can do?
Sorry for my unexpected absence from blogging during October. I have been tweeting, so you can catch up on some of my activities that way if you'd like.
I have something to say now, so I'll post a little later today.
