I just want to take a moment and welcome you to Providence Baptist Church. Whether you join us in person, via the web, or both it is important to us that you feel welcome.  We are intentionally inclusive because we believe that God has been intentionally inclusive of us to the family of God.  It is our intention that you feel the warmth of friendship and Agape love when you visit with us.

Psalm 25: 4-5
"Show me your ways, Lord, teach me your paths.  Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long."
Here in Tennessee Lent came in with a brisk winter wind.  The trees have been beautifully decorated with snow and ice, but as beautiful as it is, the broken limbs have served as a reminder that all of the snow and ice covers imperfections and cracks.
We love the look of snow covered trees as much as we love for others to see us with the same coverage.  No one wants the world to see all of their imperfections and cracks.  We want everything to seem perfect.  We want to hide our imperfections even from ourselves.     
This Lent, as we clean up the debris our winter storms left, may we also clean up the debris from our lives so that we truly are following in God's way.
