The following email went out to the Crossroads Community Church email list last night. The Bible verse quoted at the end is the "Watchword For the Day" from the Moravian Daily Texts for yesterday.
Only as we take time to pray together and listen to the Lord together will we receive His guidance and direction as a body.

As we make important decisions it's vital that we spend a good amount of time together in prayer and in the Word of God.
If you are able, please pause today at 6:30 p.m. for prayer and listening for God's voice. Come to church if you can for prayer at that time.
If that time and place doesn't work for you, spend time in prayer and in the Word of God on your own and then, afterward, please send me (Pastor Steve T) a message on email or text or leave a voice mail of what the Lord says to you as you pray.
We began our annual meeting on Sunday, April 26 after an awesome worship time with Pastor Tom Stover of the Franklin Avenue Mission and a great potluck. We did not complete the meeting. It will resume after worship on May 17.
That will allow each of us this needed time to pray, and to listen to and hear what the Lord has to say.
"Now set your mind and heart to seek the Lord your God..." (1 Chronicles 22:19a)
