Friends and fellow believers, I hope this note finds you well.
The Word on Wednesdays: The Vision of Isaiah, 6:30 pm in the sanctuary
If you want to learn more about the Old Testament's most famous prophet or just learn more about the Bible, I invite you to join myself and others for our study on Isaiah. Our Bible Study will begin at 6:30 pm tomorrow in the sanctuary. All you need to bring is yourself and your Bible. Tomorrow, we will look at the opening scene: a dramatic exchange between God and God's People (see attachment below: The Vision of Isaiah - the Opening Drama). Come join us as we talk about God's emotions and heart-ache. We will also watch a scene from the 1979 movie that was nominated for five Academy Awards. Anyone know what it is?
The Word Before Worship: Prophetic Voices, Sunday @ 9:30 am in the fellowship hall
It seemed like a number of you read the article last week by Joel Salatin about farming and family. I'd be interested to hear your opinions if you did read it.
This week, we are going to read the third chapter of Daniel together: the famous story concerning Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego. Feel free to read Daniel 3 before Sunday or just show up on Sunday and we'll read it together. We'll try to address the following question: What golden statues currently exist in our culture? If you've got a computer and a little bit of time, you might also click on the following link, which is a sermon by Pastor Alistair Begg on Daniel 3 titled Faith Under Fire:
Alistair Begg is an exegetical preacher, and some of you may know of him from the sermons that are broadcast on Christian radio. If you listen to the sermon, you'll immediately recognize Alistair's great Scottish accent, and in true Scottish fashion, he clearly comes out of a strong Reformed tradition that includes John Knox. Presbyterianism in America shares some of these roots. As promised, I am trying to introduce prophetic voices from the entire bandwidth of the Christian Church. Alistair is good at drawing modern application from Scripture, and often focuses on personal accountability and reform.
Christ be with you, and may you be Christ's servant this week,
