‘Don’t leave your God-given gifts unopened. Don’t leave this planet having missed the great opportunities God has for you. Rip off the lid of your abilities, tear into that box that is your talents, and [lovingly] use every gift God has given you. Devote yourself to fulfilling the unique purpose that is your destiny.’T.D. Jakes’ text – Destiny: Step Into Your Purpose, pg. 130
We give thanks for each of you for taking this year’s Adventure in Faith with U.C. Truth for Better Living. This year marks our 24th year of adventure and the Holy Spirit is not yet finished moulding and shaping us into all that we were created to be. That is awesome news. The Best is
Yet to Come for you and for us all.
Last Sunday during Vocational Week, we celebrated an important milestone: The 25th Year Anniversaries for UC Truth and for my Ordination as Minister of the Gospel. As I said in a social media post on the ministry’s page, I am grateful. I am grateful for all we have done together. I am grateful for all persons, businesses, consultants, who have touched this ministry in any way, shape or form and for any length of time. For the team who imagined and produced the details of the Sunday Service, I offer deep appreciation. For UC Truth as a whole, I am grateful for the journey we have taken together.
You are gifted and I know that you know that. As we begin again, know that it is time for you to soar even higher. There is much in God’s storehouse for each one of you. You have given of your time, talent, and resources and I ask that you open yourself to receive more than you’ve ever imagined.
With plenty to spare, I know that you will share as you always have done. Truly, we each hold the key to living the better lives that we seek.
Inspired by our 3 presenters, let us remember their words to us:
- Dr. Jean Beaumont: Your gifts have positioned you to make your contribution to society.
- Michael Holgate: Hear the call. Answer the call. However, you must do something to be chosen. That something is to be interested, invested and committed.
- Rev. Claudia Fletcher: God has called you to be who you are born to be – your original self: Your God SELF. As God’s plan in you comes alive, I pray that you always remember that you are destined for greatness. Life is good and it can always be better.
