*Newsletter article for November 2014 at Central Christian Church*
As we enter into the month of November, we have two more Sundays in our Joseph series. Looking ahead, I am starting to get really excited about the next series coming up. We are going to be starting a series called “Urban Legends: Debunking Spiritual Myths” on November 16. The idea behind this series is that there are myths and urban legends about Christianity that are seen as truths, that simply aren’t true. “Do you know someone who’s seen Bigfoot’s tracks? What about Nessie in Loch Ness? Of course, almost every kid has learned that there really are alligators in the sewer. You know how it goes: someone sees something and tells someone who then tells someone else. On and on and on it goes until its hard to separate fact from fiction. This doesn’t just happen with alligators and Bigfoot… it happens with spiritual truths as well. Join us as we separate fact from fiction and debunk spiritual myths.” We are going to take four weeks to look at some of these urban legends, and look at what scripture actually says about them.
We have been talking a lot recently about trying to impact our community and city of Carlsbad. One of the simplest forms of evangelism is inviting someone to come to church that doesn’t already go. Any week is a great time to do this, but this series especially would be a great place for someone with no recent church background to start out. We will be examining topics such as “There are Many Ways to God”, “God Wants Us to Be Happy”, “God Won’t Give You More Than You Can Handle” and other spiritual myths along the way. This would be a great series to invite your neighbor or coworker to.
