This Weekend – Having never written out a prayer in my life, I wasn’t necessarily excited about reading another minister’s prayer. But when I found out this minister that I had heard speak in my childhood had written this prayer shortly before his death in an automobile accident, I was at least curious what he wrote. What made it even more intriguing was he was person who had profound hearing loss. His speech was affected by his deafness. Some thought he had a foreign accent. His prayer for his life just may become your prayer for your life!

Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father
I Corinthians 4:14-17
This Week – Dr. Paul Pearsall was a psychologist years ago who died in 2007. I’ve quoted him often over the years. He’s not without controversy, but I still quote his thoughts on family. He believes that the family hasn’t failed; rather we have failed the family. The Apostle Paul in First Corinthians 4 gives some family lessons from a spiritual father.
Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father, Podcast
Monday (7/16) – We introduce the text with comments about the family from Dr. Pearsall. He believed that we are becoming more and more isolated from other family members. He also believed that we have not learned family maintenance. We then read Paul’s “family feelings” toward the church family at Corinth. It will speak to you and your family in 2018!
Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father, Part 1
Tuesday (7/17) – Paul felt a family relationship with the church at Corinth. He founded the church, and spent a year and a half with them as their pastor. He had a bond with them that went deep. He talks about some strong issues, and yet doesn’t shame them. We talk about the difference between guilt and shame. Someone needs to hear that word today! Maybe you, perhaps?
Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father, Part 2
Wednesday (7/18) – Paul warns the people at Corinth. We share the definition of “warn”. In this case it means to “put in mind”. Part of being a parent is putting in mind of your children that which they need to know. We tell the humorous story about a group of young men from Columbus who bought a used Greyhound Bus with over 1,000,000 miles on it. They rehabbed it and planned a trip to California. Listen to what happened to them!
Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father, Part 3
Thursday (7/19) – We talk about love in real life. That’s how love is really lived out! It’s a day to day, week to week, month to month process. When it’s based in the love of God through Christ, it lasts for your entire life. We illustrate that with a humorous story with a sobering point. You really need to hear this story about loving people in real (not theoretical) life!
Family Lessons from a Spiritual Father, Part 4
Friday (7/20) – We close with the true story of an airline flight over Hawaii where part of the roof of the plane came off in flight at 24,000 feet. We quote one of the passengers who describe what was happening on the plane missing the top over first class. It was not only harrowing; it was quite emotional. You really need to hear this story! The second story out of this event is actually more astounding than the first!
