Entitled, "When God Says No…What Then?" Rev. Dr. Bohl's special Sermon will feature Readings from Job 2:1-8 and New Testament Reading: II Corinthians 12:1-10. "We are excited to welcome Rev. Dr. Bohl to preach at First Presbyterian Church," states Senior Associate Pastor, Rev. Dr. Connie Ast Caldwell. "This special sermon delivered by Rev. Dr. Bohl is just one of the many diverse opportunities we will offer in 2014 for all to be blessed with God's love and continuously grow in their faith."
Rev Dr. Bohl has shared the following excerpt from his sermon.
One of the most difficult lessons to learn in life is that God may not give us everything we request but God always gives us what we need. This is true for individuals and for churches. Sometimes, God says No to our requests, not because they are not valid but because God knows what we really need. Job and Paul learned this from experience, led by example and perhaps we can learn from them.
