Active Volcanoes

“There are about 1500 potentially active volcanoes worldwide;” also, “169 potentially active volcanoes in the United States,” according to U.S. Geological Survey. “A volcano is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface.”

I am a pastor/author and public speaker. I am not a trained, academic geologist or scientist. I have been to Hawaii and visited a volcano site. The paragraph above was written by well respected authorities in their field. Here is what I gleaned, in summary, when reading more about the nature of volcanoes.

When just the right amount of heat, pressure, and time come together on the ocean floor, way, deep down, where the tectonic plates of Earth diverge/converge, bumping together, things get interesting. Above the ocean surface a volcano is ready to blow its top and explode, spewing toxic ash, pouring hot lava below.

This weekend at Journey Community Christian Church in Cynthiana we explore part two, REFRESH, a Bible series from Philippians. We have chosen this series to give support to everyone, post COVID-19. Medical experts agree that mental health concerns have skyrocketed during months and months of isolation.

Last weekend (Philippians chapter 1) we shared positivity. We discovered It is possible to refresh our thoughts with new hope, whatever difficult circumstances we face. If you missed that message it is available, anytime, for your convenience on our website:

This week we take a look at (Philippians chapter 2) and discover that people are just people. Everyone has a story of struggle; sometimes other people make things worse. There are people who can “rub” us the wrong way. If you’ve ever felt like you are about to “lose your mind,” blowing your top like a volcano, this lesson may be just what you have been looking for.

Join us, invite a guest, Sat@6pm or Sun@10:30am in person or online with FB livestream. With fewer concerns regarding COVID-19 infections we look forward to seeing you in person. Whomever said, “It’s all in your mind,” may be spot on. Anger, fear, and negative emotions usually do begin brewing before a bad storm. We are better together.

This is a great time in the world we help one another REFRESH. Let’s do this. Click and share the INVITE.
