Thursday’s Thoughts from Pastor David

Although, the only cotton I see is on the shirt I am wearing…
 
This Sunday we celebrate the Day of Pentecost!
Let’s get the timeline down…

Labor of Love

Hello September!!
We look forward to the beginning of fall this month as the ninth month of the year begins ushering in cooler temperatures bringing with them a crispness in the air…

This weekend is Labor Day Weekend!
Shouldn’t it be called “Rest Day Weekend” since we are supposed to take a “day off from laboring?”

My mind got to thinking about “labor” the other day and we will address the issue of “labor” this Sunday at church…

“What are we laboring for?”
“What are we laboring against?”
“What are we laboring to…?”

#22 “Strange Sign” – 25 Days of Christmas

open-door

“And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” (Luke 2: 12)

We have all heard about how God will show us a “sign” by the opening of a “door.”

Not always…

A dear friend was going through a rough time about twenty years ago.
At his wits end, he finally drove himself to the “Funny Farm.” (His words…)

Guess what?
The gate to the “Funny Farm” was closed.
Strange Sign…

Next day at church?
Jesus changed his life!

Manger?
Swaddling cloths?
Strange Sign…

World changed!!
