Spiritual 7th Inning Stretch!


In most things I do, I like to jump right in full throttle and with a full heart. In many ways, I’ve been going 90 to nothing as I drive the roads back and forth between Snellville and Jackson. I believe the Holy Spirit not only empowers me to live in every moment but also helps me adjust along the way.


Just as the fans enjoy the 7th inning stretch, it benefits the players as well. That’s why I have intentionally planned to take this Sunday, March 26, as a Sabbath day from preaching and being present for you. I’m grateful to Michael Brewer for his gifts and eagerness to preach in my absence at both services.


With a wedding this Thursday and a funeral this Saturday, I’ll be looking forward to some respite time this Sunday to listen to God renew my soul. I certainly do this on a regular basis each day and week, but there’s  something good for both the preacher and the congregation to take a 7th inning stretch. I hope my  example will be an encouragement for you to take time alone with God in a rhythm that works for both you and God. So, I hope you will be intentional about listening to what God wants you to hear through Michael this Sunday and take your own 7th inning stretches to whatever has become a routine for you. Not to get out of the habit, but to change it up just enough to experience the presence of God in a refreshing way.


It certainly will be my desire to be refreshed and renewed as we go into Palm Sunday, Holy Week and Easter starting April 2. Have a blessed day and may God continue to stretch you in whatever inning you are in!



In Christ’s Love, 


Pastor Owen
