Who we are as the Church and what should our neighbours expect from us. When you think about the word neighbour does a person or people come to mind? Does this make you smile or grumble? Better yet, how do you think your neighbours would respond if asked about you as their neighbour?
Welcome to a FRESH START! Here we are and here is what you can expect from us! Join us online or in-person this Sunday, September 12th at 11am as we begin this new series.
Plan to come and mark the Labour Day weekend as we look into the word of God for guidance. We are all searching to be blessed, as Psalm 1 suggests. The secret of such blessedness lies not in the ways we normally think. Join with us as we explore the secrets of a truly prosperous life.
As we come to the last message in our series about our friend Daniel, we see that he has served well in multiple administrations and two empires … but the challenges to his faith remain! I hope you can join us, either personally in the sanctuary or through the live stream, as we explore this example of faith lived out in less than ideal circumstances … which sounds pretty close to our own experiences as followers of Jesus!
Our fourth installment in the series “Faithful Living in an Unsympathetic World” involves a return visit to examine the life of the leader of the Babylonian empire. He has made some headway, no doubt due to the presence of the God-fearing Hebrew exiles serving in his court … but like all of us, he still has a way to go. We are sometimes perplexed by our halting progress within our spiritual selves … but this passage gives us much hope.
All of us have encountered, within our busy lives, certain people who are our superiors (bosses, teachers, coaches, etc.), who ask a little more from us than they really should … beyond simple service into what we might call border-line worship. We certainly do live within an empire of sorts, just like the three lads in our story this Sunday … but we know deep within us the Being who really deserves our worship.
