Dr. Dennis Swanberg…”THE SWAN”…is considered by many as “AMERICA’S MINISTER OF ENCOURAGEMENT.” He uses laughter as a tool to break down people’s barriers about themselves, and he promotes faith and family values in a lighthearted and humorous way. He has the reputation for revealing and instilling hope and motivating people from all walks of life.

I look forward to continuing our message series Sunday called “Easter! So What?” Our church has grown accustomed to my question, “So What?” at the conclusion of my messages. I fell into this practice a few years ago as the result of making sure that every message ends on a note of action. As I routinely say, “We gather not so much for information, but for inspiration and transformation.”
As we journey toward Easter this year, we are pursuing what I would call the ultimate “So What” preaching series. My preaching series through the week after Easter will be “Easter! So What?” We will be considering several questions posed in the Easter accounts in the Bible. Some of the questions come from Jesus. Others questions come from the disciples. A few of the questions come from adversaries of Jesus like Pilate. Many of the questions are our questions. I think you will discover that every question impacts us. That is, all of the questions cause us to ask “So What?”
This week the question is from Pilate. In his confusion and internal conflict about what to do with Jesus, Pilate asked the question of so many in our culture: “What is truth?” We will talk about that Sunday. I sure hope to see you.
Be sure to pay attention to the information regarding the running of the Zydeco Marathon and plan your route to church in advance. See more details and map at www.fbclaf.org/zydeco.
See You Sunday!
