Manufacturers are working real hard to try and earn your purchase. As a result, there are lots of new products out there. The recent Outdoor Retailer Show revealed many new boats and paddle fishing related products. Yes, call this Christmas in the middle of summer. So, when you can, check out demos given by local shops and you may be rewarded with a test drive of some of the new goods. Unlike recreational paddlers, paddle anglers do a lot more on the water than simply paddle. That's why it's very important to demo these boats in a way that mimics what you'd actually do while fishing. Paddling characteristics are certainly important, but in reality, most of your time will be spent fishing - so focus on that. Think about your entire angling process, what it takes you to get on the water (unloading the boat and loading your gear), what it takes to get off the water (unloading your gear and loading your boat), and everything in between (FISHING!).

The church has been accused of being stuck in a 2000-year-old understanding of the world. While at times, that can feel like an accurate assessment, the Christian faith is a rich tradition continually shaped by the ongoing revelation of God. As Jesus shows up in new and unexpected ways, our task is cultivating an openness to being surprised, and then wrestling with what to do when we are. The Rev. Dr. Jason Byassee is fascinated by the ways Jesus shows up. “We look at our Bibles, our friends, and even our enemies, and we think we know what we’ll find,” he says, “but then Jesus reveals himself in ways we never expected. Cultivating an openness to being surprised changes the way we understand faith in the world.” Preaching Grace is three separate events gathered together in one weekend at Grace Presbyterian Church. You can attend any or all of the events. Evening Presentation - FREE Friday, April 27, at 7:30 pm – Register to attend this free presentation where Dr. Byassee will speak about the beautiful and sometimes challenging ways Jesus shows up in our ordinary moments. Conversation and Retreat - $75 Saturday, April 28, from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm – What do we do when we’re surprised by Jesus? Saturday’s retreat is a chance reflect on God’s investment in the particular and consider how we might respond. Space is limited, register today! Sunday Morning Sermon Sunday, April 29, at 10:30 a.m. – Curious about what Dr. Byassee’s work looks like from across the pulpit? Join us at Grace Presbyterian Church to hear him lead worship on Sunday morning.
