Monday's Here

"Knowing what you know about yourself and the world, what are you going to do?" That question from novelist Walker Percy ended our worship yesterday, following up the harder questions in Obadiah:

  • Am I brother's keeper?
  • Where am I being aloof?

Obadiah provided a stunning feast from such a small book.  If you missed worship, you can always view it by clicking HERE.  (Next week we'll hear from the prophet Nahum).

We also shared a short video about a study group going to Israel / Palestine next year with RCA global personnel, Marlin and Sally Vis, along with Children's Ministry Director Kristin Brower and Tara Woodward.  You can see the video below.  Anyone with any level of interest is invited to inquire by letting the church office know that you want to be included in more information.

CHILDREN'S SUNDAY SCHOOL CONNECTING POINT

IMG_0940We’ve come to the final lesson of our series on the Armor of God. We’ve protected ourselves with the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, and the belt of truth. We’ve also armed ourselves with the sword of the Spirit. The last piece of the puzzle goes on our feet. Paul calls it the readiness that comes with the gospel of peace, and it’s a very fitting piece of armor to go on our feet.

Having your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace isn’t about protection like many of the other pieces of armor. It’s being ready to take the gospel to the world, to share it with those who need it. Sharing the gospel is the final command that Jesus gave his followers when he went back to Heaven.
