Going Through Samaria / by David Flowers

Hello CMF,

This Sunday (Nov 22nd) we will have a guest speaker with us.

Robert Howe is a friend of mine and has visited us before. Robert has a MA in Global Leadership from Fuller Theological Seminary, and is now working on a Doctor of Missiology (DMiss) in the area of Leadership Development at Fuller.

He currently works for the grad chapter of InterVarsity at Virginia Tech.

Robert has a passion for developing leaders and churches to be missionally engaged in the cultures around them. Now more than ever the church needs to be equipped for this task.

Here is what this Sunday's message looks like:

Sermon Title:  Going Through Samaria:
The Journey of Intercultural Discipleship
Scripture Reading:  John 4:1-42
Focus:  A key way that God shapes us as disciples of Jesus is through intercultural encounters with people from backgrounds different than our own. The disciples' journey through Samaria in John 4 is an example of how following Jesus will sometimes take us out of our cultural comfort zone.

In this message, guest speaker Robert Howe will share stories of how God has shaped him through experiences of other cultures, and he will invite others to reflect on their own "Samaria" for the sake of the kingdom of God.  Join us for Sunday School at 9:30 AM & worship at 10:30 AM.

Grace & Peace,
Pastor David
