Easter Worship Series: The Great I Am

Seven times in the gospel of John, Jesus says, “I am.” I am the Bread of Life. I am the Resurrection and the Life. I am the Light of the World. I am the Vine. I am the Good Shepherd.

I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. I am the Door.

What in the world is he trying to say? What do these statements mean? Jesus, the son of God, is revealing who God is to us. He’s not just giving us a metaphor. He’s sharing the truth about how he relates to us. During the 50 days of Easter, we’ll take a deeper dive into what this means and why it makes all the difference as we navigate this world.

Join us each Sunday to discover not just the meaning, but the freedom, that is ours once we better understand who Christ is and what he wants to be in our lives, our families, our church and our world. 

Susan and Stewart Eaton's Self-Care Book Helping Many

A couple years ago, when a teenager and her mom approached Reverend Susan Eaton for counseling to ease their struggles with anxiety, Eaton wished she had a resource to give them to provide the peace they sought. This encounter planted a seed for Eaton, discipleship pastor at Parkway Heights United Methodist Church. 

Months later, when her own son revealed his feelings of depression and anxiety, Eaton decided it was time to make the idea of a resource come to fruition. She joined forces with her husband, Stewart Eaton, a licensed professional counselor at Pine Grove Behavioral Health, to write You’re Gonna Be Okay.  

“I started writing my son notes and doing breathing practices and relaxation exercises with him among other things,” Rev. Eaton said. “Stewart and I pulled from our knowledge, gifts and resources to help him. This book was a product of the journey we’ve been on with our son. It’s also the resource I always wanted but didn’t have. Even though I saw the need for it awhile back, it took going through it ourselves to make it a reality.”

The book was written to serve as a loving guide and companion to help those navigating the darkness of depression and anxiety. You’re Gonna Be Okay provides readings, prayers, journaling prompts and online links to music, as well as other helpful online resources. Each entry was written to help readers gain a new perspective and better understand the emotions they're experiencing, all while restoring the belief that they're going to be okay.

The book was released July 25, 2020, and has been very successful so far. Several weeks after the book’s debut, it was the number one new release in multiple categories on Amazon, including the Christian Counseling section and the Teen and Young Adult Depression and Mental Health section.

Nicolet Bell, director of student ministries for St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church in Madison, MS, works closely with young people who face a struggle with anxiety and depression every day; and she highly recommended the book. 

Bell said, “The Eatons’ new book is so timely! In a world where anxiety and depression are so prevalent, especially in our young people, we need this truth. The book takes scripture and brings it to life for those struggling or for those who love someone who is struggling. It’s thoughtfully written and organized in a way that is easy to read (especially for young people).”

You’re Gonna Be Okay is currently available in e-book and paperback versions on Amazon. Learn more about the book and the authors at

Band Together

Connection is extremely important. Jesus changed the world by forming deep relationships with a few people who would then carry on His work beyond His earthly life. He even said that the very credibility of His life and message in the eyes of unbelievers would be dependent upon the way His followers relate to each other (see John 17).
