At the conclusion of Sunday’s worship gathering, we gave people an chance to pick up a His Word The Last Word card as a sign of a “surrendered brain.”
What is HWLW?
It’s a legacy of the ministry of Dawson Trotman who founded The Navigators student ministry in 1933. Trotman developed the nightly discipline of reciting or reading a section of Scripture out loud just before he went to bed. In that way, God’s word would be the last word to come from his mouth in a given day.
Trotman also believed that by finishing a day with Scripture that the next day would begin with that same Scripture already on his mind. After all, he’d had all night to sleep on it.
And now, so has a congregation full of surrendered brains from Good Shepherd United Methodist.
