Prayer For Others: Does It Do Any Good?

pray-for-others

It seems like common sense that we ought to pray for others when they are in need. Yet sometimes we find ourselves in circular arguments in our mind about why we should bother. If God is all knowing and all loving and all wise why would we need to pray for others when of course God is managing the universe as perfectly as possible and doing as much good to all people as is possible? What difference do our prayers make? Are we going to change the course of people’s lives and events of this world by praying?

We are going to talk about his on Sunday. See you there at 10:30 a.m.

The Life Giving Power Of The Word

River of life

 

In the book of Ezekiel we read of a vision of Jerusalem and the temple there with a river flowing out from it. Wherever the river went and whatever it touched it gave life.

This is a reminder that the Word of the Lord gives life and can restore what is lost or broken within us. This river of water is a symbol for the Word and the truth within it. Water and is mentioned so often in the Word because it is a symbol for truth and the life it can give to our mind and spirit.

We hope to see you on Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Why Do It Alone When Really, You Can’t?

moses aaron hurWe all have our struggles and battles to fight. We can’t overcome them alone. There a several things we need which are all illustrated within this story of Moses, Aaron and Hur in a battle against the Amalekites.

Time to give up the losing battle and fight in the winning battle – the one wherein we are not isolated and battling by ourselves.

See you Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

No Where To Go But Forward

Join us this Sunday as we look at the desire to want to go back to the way things were, when the only healthy option is to go forward. Question is how do we go ahead into new ways of living when we are afraid and just want to go back to the (seeming) comfort of the past.
This service will be led by Peter Buss.

This Sunday we celebrate the reported beginning of a new church. This new church is pictured symbolically by the holy city New Jerusalem in the book of Revelation.  These visions recorded in the book of Revelation are hopeful promises of a New Church, a new understanding and new Christianity that have descended and are descending into our world. “Behold, I make all things new.” (Revelation 21:5)

Always Remember

Remember

This is Memorial Day Weekend. It is a time to remember. It is a time to remember the sacrifice of those who lost their lives to protects ours. On a spiritual level it is a time to remember from where we have come and to where we are being led, and the Lord’s love and mercy that cradle and support us along this journey. It is a time to remember the truths that we hold most dear and remember to live by them. It is a time to remember these things so we don’t forget them. It is much easier to remember to do the things we have in mind. We will talk about how to help keep them in mind this Sunday at 10:30 a.m.

Please join us!
