A couple of weeks ago, two talented gentlemen from church came over to film me talking about my blog for a sermon series called Grace @ Work. There are four or five videos in the series and each person has a unique testimony of how God has called them to go public with their faith.
In my last post, I shared one of these videos with you and I asked what the word evangelism means to you.
Today, I’m sharing my story.
Four years ago, I started writing The Schell Cafe. It started as a simple way to share recipes for my family and with my friends. But, the Lord has different plans for this little ol’ blog and I’m grateful he has put a pen in my hand (or given me fingers and a keyboard) to write.
In the next few days (Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise), this blog will be merged with The Schell Cafe. I started The Kitchen Mission in April ’09, and I have used this site as a place holder to write since then. Two blogs is confusing for me and my intention all along has been to incorporate my faith musings into the Cafe site. A very talented web designer has been working on this project for what seems to me like an eternity a while. He emailed me this morning to let me know that later today I will be able to see the new design.
Soon, The Schell Cafe will be serving up daily offerings of food and faith.
I am grateful beyond measure you are joining me on this journey. If you’ve been reading for a while, thank you! If you are new to The Schell Cafe, welcome and I hope you’ll have fun as we cook, share, and learn together.
For centuries, women gathered daily at a well or at the banks of a river to collect the water their families needed to survive. Scripture shares with us stories of women like the Samaritan Woman (John 4) and Lydia (Acts 16: 13) who came to know Jesus Christ as THE source of living water. My prayer is that as we gather ’round the tables at The Schell Cafe, there will be a special sense of community. That we, too, will be women gathering with a desire for prayer, sharing the Word of God, and attaining wisdom, discipline, and understanding. And most of all, that our thirsty souls will be satisfied by drinking deeply from the living water that is Jesus Christ.
If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.
Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said,
streams of living water will flow from within him.
John 7: 37 -38
