Sunday morning, I continued the “Focus on the Family: Issues, Identity, and Intentionality” sermon series. I am still focusing on ‘Issues’ that need to be faced head on. I am doing this first, because if the ‘issues’ being discussed aren’t addressed, moving toward personal, marital, or familial vitality will not happen.
Sunday (Jan. 29th), we looked at the issue of women and submission.
After showing a video of Bob Newhart counseling a woman to ‘Stop It!’ I encouraged the ladies in our congregation to stop submitting to men. [Please listen or watch the sermon in order to understand what I mean by that!]

The outline/acrostic I used looked like this:
S – Start with God
T – Tell yourself the Truth
O – Own Up to your Husband
P – Put on Class
I – Identify Real Empowerment
T – Train to Recognize.
Twice during the message, I quoted from Russell Moore
. He wrote an article a while back that originally got me thinking about this idea. You can find the entire article here
