Okay, so it's been a little while since I blogged but a challenge from my pastor has me back here today. The theme of our church for awhile now has been "Love Wins" and we are currently in the middle of a year long campaign "Nothing is too difficult for God". We've learned about abouthow no illness is too difficult for God to heal and we are currently learning about how no financial need is too great for God. This past Sunday's sermon was based around how God takes what we have and multiplies it when we follow through with what he leads us to do. The Sermon was titled "What's in Your House" based on the story of the widow woman who only had just a little bit of oil but began pouring it into other jars and the oil didn't run out until there were no jars left. 2 Kings 4:1-7
So, for the challenge, the pastor handed out a $1 bill to everyone in the congregation, ($150 in all) and challeged us to use our creativity to multiply it. Combining that with "what's in your house" I came up with these cute little Love Wins charms. They can be worn as a pendant on a cord, added to keyring or zipper pull, or worn as a charm on your sneakers, etc. We will be bringing our dollars and the sum of their multiplication back to the church on Sunday May 3rd. I am making these charms availible for a $2 donation, a small portion of that (about .60 to .75 cents) will cover the cost of mailing the charm and the rest will be donated to Christian Center. I can't wait to see what God turns $150 dollars into. I will be sure to share the news here.
So, please consider helping me out! Choose your favorite charm, it will come with a jump ring, and leave me a comment with the charm you like and an email address, I will contact you with a paypal invoice for the donation amount so I can get your charm sent out to you.
Everyone who participates will be eligible for a drawing for a $10 gift certificate to http://www.cherryscreations.etsy.com/ . The winner will be chosen and announced Tuesday May 5th with the results of the multiplication challenge.
Thanks so much and may God abundantly bless you!
