We've all seen a sailboat.  It's such a common part of culture that even children's books talk about sailboats.  However, there was a time when there were no sailboats.  Before the technology of sails, people were left to either ride the currents or power their boats with oars or paddles.  Talk about exhausting work!

Then one day someone invented a way to catch the power of wind.  Using a mast, rigging and massive tarps, sailors were able to harness a power source that was readily available on the open seas.  With this amazing innovation, global travel became possible and the world began to change.

Is there teaching point for the Christian to learn from?  Is there an invisible power, readily available to every follower of Christ?  Lastly, is there a way to capture this power to help direct the lives of people? 

The answer to all those questions is a resounding, "Yes!"  On Sunday we will begin a brand new sermon series specifically targeted at learning to " raise our sails".    Jesus on multiple occasions talked about how prayer and fasting were ways in which we can connect to God in a powerful and meaningful way.  What Jesus stressed more then anything was that our Heavenly Father wants to provide his people with wisdom, direction and power.  However, according to Jesus, the problem is that people didn't take the time to ask.

Do you want to "raise the sails" in your life?  Make sure and listen to this new sermon series, Less of Me ~ More of Him.
