John 13:34-35 (NKJV) “34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
“”By Our love” For King and Country
My dear and precious brothers, I ask that you prayerfully consider serving God and your fellow brothers on the TBTD 47 weekend. Love is how other people know we follow Jesus. It’s the thing that marks us as disciples. Like Jesus, who loved sacrificially, we are also called to extravagant love that costs us something. Showing sacrificial love to others allows others to see Jesus in us.
I challenge you to embrace the transformative power of love, to the point where it starts to affect everything we do — the way we talk to others, interact with strangers, handle disappointments, celebrate victories, make decisions. When love floods into our lives, it all shifts. It results in less doom-scrolling, more conversation. Less comparison, more community. Less fear, more confidence. More over-the-top displays of compassion. More patience. More life in our souls.
You see, love will save us. In fact, it already has, because love’s name is Jesus.
I humbly ask that you prayerfully consider serving on TBTD 47 as well as sponsoring other men you believe would benefit from this timely message. I am looking forward to serving alongside my fellow brothers, YOU, this weekend as well as the candidates and our amazing Lord God Almighty!
Love is the cause of unity in all things,
Rector TBTD 47

“Head to the Heart” – United Pursuit
My sweet sisters in Christ, I ask that you prayerfully consider serving God and your fellow sisters on the TBTD 47 weekend. How do we love as Jesus did when others hurt us? Jesus loved sacrificially. For us to love as Jesus did, we must guard our hearts. To guard our hearts, we must first know who our hearts belong to and where our identity comes from. We must take control of what comes out of our mouths, what our eyes are fixed on and the paths our feet travel. Let me ask you, what words are you speaking or listening to? What are your eyes focused on? What path are you on?
I challenge you to take a journey from your head to your heart. Let go and let God. Just Be Held and find rest in who you are in Him.
If this theme and the scripture verses speak to you, please prayerfully consider serving on TBTD 47 and/or sponsoring a candidate.
Guard Your Hearts and Mind in Jesus Christ,
Rector TBTD 47
