Rare Treat

This past Sunday we had a great service at church. Really every Sunday is great, but this one had an added bonus. Our pastor interviewed Rev. Clarence Jett. I think he said he was 94 years old!! The interview was about how to grow in your faith, live out your faith and share your faith.
Sadly this kind of wisdom from simply living life is hard to find in today's contemporary church.
So as someone embarking on the second half of this life (hopefully!), it was encouraging and inspiring to hear the wisdom of Rev. Jett.

My take away from him: God is there, all the time, no matter what. Simple, yet so profound for the busy life and world I tend to live in. Weed out the noise and listen for the still, small voice of God. He is there.

You can listen to the whole interview, Still Standing, Part 3 "Know", here.
