03-24-19 @North Heartland: "This Is Us ... Fallout"
Good morning NHCCers!
Got several things to mention to you this gorgeous day ... hopefully all of interest. 🙂
First off, after many years of resistance, I am finally going to dip my toe into the world of social media - sort of. Specifically, I'm going to begin using my long-dormant Twitter account on a regular basis and you can follow me if you want. My handle is @RickMcGinniss.
As for what I will tweet (gosh that sounds goofy coming from me!), I'm planning to feature quotes and links to articles, videos and other items of interest that I have come across in preparation for each Sunday's message. I typically spend a great deal of time in research for a sermon and a lot of what I encounter is very insightful and inspirational but, for various reasons, doesn't make it into the message. It just sits there in my notes doing no one else any good.
I should also say that I will not be tweeting anything of a politically partisan nature. Lots of other people do that and there isn't a need for one more.
Next thing to share with you is a recent trend to use the names of pastors as bait in a phishing scam. The details are here but the basics of the scam are that church folks get an email from their minister requesting they make a contribution to the church by buying and sending in gift cards.
I've not heard of anyone at NHCC being phished in this way but, just to be clear: I will never ask you to buy and send in a gift card. 🙂
Finally, this Sunday we continue on our series This Is Us. Just a heads up that the multimedia and music for this service will be over-the-top. I think the message, Fallout, might be pretty decent, too, as we take the next step in understanding why we are the way we are as human beings.
I hope you be present or watching online and that you'll invite someone who doesn't follow Jesus or go to church anywhere.
Until then, have a great weekend!
