I know; I know. You’ve heard me say that about practically every new sermon series at CLC for how many years now.
But this time is different.
As I was doing my daily prayer & Bible reading several days ago, a portion of my reading was Esther 9:22, and here’s the part that jumped out at me: “the month when things turned around for them—changing from sorrow to joy and from mourning into a favorable day–“
When I read that, I felt the Lord saying to me that months from now, CLC’ers would look back on our September sermon series and say, “that was the month when things turned around for our finances — changing it from pressure and stress and arguments into the FAVOR we now enjoy!“
We’re calling the series, ‘Moneywise’ because we’re focusing on the wisdom of Solomon found in the book of Proverbs pertaining to our finances, and I can’t wait!
We’ve got some special things planned for the series, including another ‘Generosity Sunday’ when CLC’ers will receive more than $10,000 from us, as we practice what we preach about generosity, AND, some very special guests who will speak at each campus, Talaat & Tai McNeely from “His and Her Money”. If you’re not acquainted with their story, take a look at this clip from when they were guests on the T.D. Jakes show.
I hope you’ll invite your unchurched friends, because everyone you know could use some of God’s wisdom regarding their money. It all starts on September 3!
