The word "bold" is used to describe everything from a print font to a flavor to a color to a personality. It's been used as a name for a laundry detergent, a hair care product, and even a Soap Opera (B&B for short).
In Acts chapter 4 the disciples Peter and John were described as "bold" and all of the believers together prayed that they might be more and more bold. What about you? Would you consider yourself a bold Christian? Is it something you've ever even considered striving for?
This Sunday, January 20th, we'll be wrapping up our series "SELF-less" with a look at the idea of becoming Bold in Witness. It's something Jesus longs for us to become and something our family, friends and neighbors need from us. I hope you'll be able to join us.
FYI: Steve Ludeman will be preaching for me on Sunday, January 27th.
This coming week I'll be traveling to Denver for our Covenant Midwinter Pastor's Conference. Midwinter is an opportunity to connect with my colleagues in Covenant ministry, to share interests and ideas, to encourage and be encouraged, to reflect and be inspired, and to laugh and have fun. I'm grateful for the opportunity CCC gives me to be restored and re-energized and to reaffirm God's call on my life through attending this annual event.
While I'm out of town, you will still be able to reach me by email, text, or phone call (206-650-1557). Or you can reach out to one of our Church Council members or Elders.

How was your day?
One summer when I was in college I worked for a small business that assembled computer cables. Each day I'd get my assignment of what type of cables I was supposed to make - how long, what type of connector, etc. Then my day primarily consisted of inserting wires into metal connectors and then passing them on to someone who tested it to see if I had put each colored wire into the appropriate slot. Although i occasionally got to cut lengths of cable or put metal tips on the wires, it was pretty much the same job every day... day after day... week after week...
We can't always avoid the mundane tasks that are a part of making a living or running a household. But does that mean that we're doomed to depression and a poor attitude in the midst of the daily grind?
This Sunday, January 13th, we're continuing in our series "SELF-less". How can we honor God and actually thrive in the midst of the seemingly insignificance of our tasks in life? I hope you'll be able to join us and consider how God wants to transform your life for the better.
