I hope you were able to enjoy the “Party in the Parking Lot” last Sunday. It was a blast with good food, bouncing fun along with millions of bubbles, plus a visit from our Fire and Police Departments. We’ll do it again next spring.
This weekend we celebrate Labor Day, recognizing the end of summer fun and the turning towards autumn events like picking apples, football games and marching band competitions. Those of you who enjoy soccer and softball, you’re in the midst of your sport. God bless you in your leisure. I hope we can enjoy the weather, cheer on our favorite teams and take a moment to offer thanks. We work hard and that labor provides for our families and daily needs. I salute you all who have retired and rest from those labors. I honor those still hard at work and pray for your good health to continue. Thank God for the prosperity and abundance produced by your labors.
On Sunday we will continue our sermon series, New Places for New People. A look at Ezekiel 37:1-10 will provide a snap shot of hope and God’s grace. We can learn from Israel’s past because God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Consider those dry parts of life and ask, “What happened? Why do I hold on when the Spirit is not present?” Our God is one of redemption and forgiveness, of life and health.
Let’s talk more on Sunday.
