Normally, I write these blog posts hoping that readers will share 5-10 minutes to think, pray and/or act on a topic. Today, I am asking that, if you will still grant me the time, that you can help the Holy Spirit inspire future sermons and preaching series via workshop and prayer. 

Through my daily Bible reading, regular prayer life, conversations with people and the needs of our church and community the Holy Spirit will inspire each sermon and upcoming series. This September I am going on a five-day prayer, planning, and writing retreat for the preaching and worship needs for this winter and all of 2023. The Holy Spirit is leading me to ask all of my readers for input in preparation for this retreat and future sermons.

If you’d prayerfully consider four short questions and anonymously share your response through this link electronically. You might not quite pick my next sermon, but I know the Holy Spirit will inspire me with ideas that would meet your spiritual needs and invite others to share in the worship and teaching ministry of UMCG. 

Thank you for sharing your time and energy with me by answering these four questions.
