Where Have All the Posts Gone?

Since the start of our deputation in 2010, it has been one of my goals to not just maintain but to develop relationships with our supporters—you. A big part of that involves keeping you informed, and this blog has been one of the primary means to that end. However, it’s been three months since I’ve written anything here and you may have started wondering, “Where have all the posts gone?” (Or maybe not. Who knows.) Some changes have been made, but you can still continue to keep up with all that God is doing in our lives and in the ministry here in Provo, Utah. Let me explain how.

1.  Bookmark our Supporters Page. (Note: this is not a mobile site and not available on mobile devices.) This “secret” page on our church’s website will serve as your dashboard to our ministry.

2.  Like New Morning Church on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. I usually post something relevant to our ministry (links to articles, quotes, photos, Bible verses, etc.) once a day. (You can also find me personally on Facebook and Twitter.)

3.  Sign up for weekly email updates here. These go out every Saturday and include a link to the previous week’s sermon, teasers from future messages, and reminders about upcoming events and opportunities to get involved. While they are written with our own community in mind, they are a good way for you to stay informed about New Morning as well.

4.  Listen to messages from New Morning’s pulpit. You’ll see the “Sermons” button in the menu bar near the top of the Supporters Page. All of the messages at New Morning are recorded, including guests speakers, and uploaded on Monday.

5.  Visit the new blog here and subscribe using the “Follow by Email” option on the right. 

A New Morning

Here’s the first big change: I will no longer be posting at loganwolf.net. Instead, I will be writing on our church’s blog, A New Morning. This is a blog that rejoices in God’s mercy and the promise of a fresh start each day (cf. Lamentations 3:22, 23). While it will have less personal material, you can expect encouraging and thought provoking posts related to prayer, sermons series, current events, and Bible doctrine.

6.  Subscribe to our newsletter by filling our the form here. Be sure to include your mailing address. If you have given financially at any point in the past, you should already receive a copy to be displayed or distributed as you see fit. Here’s the second big change: per new Faith Missions policies, starting in January 2015, our newsletter will be mailed out quarterly instead of bimonthly. The latest issue will be available on our Supporters Page under the “Download” section at the bottom. Our most recent newsletter is from September/October 2014 and our next one will come out in January 2015.

Thank you for your continued prayers, encouragement, and financial support!

  1. The Israelites tried to hide their sin behind religious activity (cf. Hos. 2:11; 5:6). Be careful not to do the same thing. #NewMorningProvo

  3. Sin will leave you “oppressed and broken” (Hos. 5:11; cf. John 8:34). #NewMorningProvo
  4. “Acknowledge [your] offence, and seek [God’s] face” (Hos. 5:15). #NewMorningProvo
  5. Acknowledging the problem of sin in your life without turning to Jesus leads to despair (cf. Mat. 27:3, 4). #NewMorningProvo

“The Causes of Spiritual Adultery” in 5 Tweets

A recap of the message “The Causes of Spiritual Adultery” (from the series “Unfaithful: Are You Cheating on God?”) in 140 characters or less.

  1. Forsaking God’s Word causes spiritual adultery (cf. Hosea 4:1, 6). #NewMorningProvo
  2.  Corrupt, selfish leadership has a tendency to trickle down to the people—“like people, like priest” (Hos. 4:9). #NewMorningProvo
  3. An idol is any false representation of God. It can be a physical object or a belief. #NewMorningProvo
  4. The unrepentant can be more spiritually harmful to you than you are helpful to them (cf. Hos. 4:17; 1 Cor. 5:11-13). #NewMorningProvo
  5. You can prevent spiritual adultery by faithfully holding to Bible (cf. Ps. 119:11). #NewMorningProvo

Back from Honduras

Back from Honduras, loganwolf.netI recently returned from a ten day trip to San Pedro Sula, Honduras. I was part of a joint team from CrossPoint Church in Salt Lake City, Utah and Gateway Community Christian Church in Mountain View, Wyoming, sponsored by Hungry for Life. The purpose of the trip was to connect with local pastors in the Rio Blanco area, help with VBS programs, assist with construction projects, and explore the possibility of a long-term partnership with this community. It was an eye-opening experience that God used to challenge me greatly.Back from Honduras, loganwolf.netOn Sunday, August 3, we worshipped with local believers at the Cristo Centro Church. During the service a woman went up front and gave a testimony. While I was encouraged by the entirety of the service, God used this particular moment within it to speak to me. Through a translator we learned that she was praising God for His goodness and thanking Him for always meeting her needs. I choked up. In light of the extreme poverty we observed and worked in the day before, her statement hit me hard. Through this woman, God reminded me that His blessings are not always tied to the material—stuff does not mean spiritual—and He convicted me about my own tendency to inflate the definition of need. I’m still chewing on this and I pray we all learn to be content in Him and Him alone.Back from Honduras, loganwolf.net

“The Return” in 5 Tweets

A recap of the message “The Return” (from the series “Unfaithful: Are You Cheating on God?”), preached by Bryant Rouse, in 140 characters or less.

  1. Like Hosea remaining committed to Gomer though she was faithful (cf. Hosea 3:3), God is committed to you. #NewMorningProvo
  2. “Thou thou shalt not play the harlot, and thou shalt not be for another man: so will I also be for thee” (Hosea 3:3). #NewMorningProvo
  3. “For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God” (Exodus 34:14). #NewMorningProvo
  4. Hosea’s pursuit of Gomer is a picture of Jesus’ pursuit of you. #NewMorningProvo
  5. Jesus died for all of your sin—past, present, and future. #NewMorningProvo
