Recently, I had the honor of preaching at the annual gathering of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries. What a blessing! ARM is an organization in the Wesleyan Methodist family that is committed to enabling followers of Jesus to grow through experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit. They focus their energy on personal renewal, church renewal, and pastoral renewal. It was wonderful to be able to bring the Word of God to over 1200 people despite having to adjust to an online format. God is so good! For the first time, ARM was able to engage an international audience through the wonders of technology. People from as far away as Peru heard the Gospel and joined in prayer and sharing.
In these challenging days of social distancing and the need to adjust to new ways of doing things, it may seem like we are unable to make a difference. But the Holy Spirit is still moving and lives are being transformed! It is clear that God is using WME and organizations like Aldersgate Renewal Ministries to reach people despite the various crises that are unfolding in our world. Our reach is growing beyond what we could imagine in our old ways of working and God is leading us toward new and exciting horizons.
God is good. Yes indeed, all the time!
