Welcome to embracethegodlife.com, the website of thoughts, writings, reviews, and sermons of Pastor Pat Hannon. Pastor Pat currently serves as Associate Dean of the Chapel at Indiana Wesleyan University.
embracethegodlife.com is currently under redevelopment, and will officially relaunch on December 1, 2007.
If you have stumbled upon this site before then, please stop by again soon to see what’s going on!
I gave this charge to the people of Faith Community Church on my last day as pastor. I thought I would share it with you as well.
Live – and live well.
Love – and love well.
Laugh – even if it isn’t funny.
Cry when friends leave.
Cherish ordinary moments – for life is a collection of ordinary moments – and in them we find God.
Care for one another – it’s how people will know you follow Jesus.
Never be afraid to get out of the boat.
Be silent – every day. Silence and stillness are the most radical actions we can take in the world.
Be whole – whatever it takes. Settle for nothing less.
Watch for God’s Kingdom – it’s breaking into our world all over the place.
When you find a piece of God’s Kingdom – point it out to someone else.
Eat together – every chance you get. Everything you need to know about God’s Kingdom can be discovered by sharing life around the table.
Do the little things – Little things done consistently, over time, will change the world.
You are changing the world.

I just received an e-mail with the following subject line:
“Obtain degrees from Prestigious non-accredited Universities”
Once I finish my Doctor of Ministry degree, I’m really tempted to continue and earn a degree from a prestigious non-accredited university.
