I am an inveterate note-taker when I am in class, and the habit has now followed me to church as well. I find that when I am attending a service immediately after getting off of a twelve-hour night shift (as I routinely do!), taking notes is a good way to stay awake and stay focused on the sermon.
Rather than jotting down every word that is said, I tend to note major themes. A recent sermon focused on “Nothing Is Impossible.” From this, I collected the following impressive list of states of being and states of action that are possible with Christ. In no particular order:
“With men it is impossible, but all things are possible with God.”
–Jesus Christ of Nazareth
