I hope you are still thinking about that all important sentence. “So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I…” (Psalm 71:18). You can read how the psalmist finished that sentence. Hopefully, you paid attention to how the psalmist finished that sentence. But all of us MUST finish that sentence. Doing so reorients perspective on the rest of living.
So many of you either texted and emailed Sunday evening with how you are finishing that sentence. It made for a rather exciting Sunday afternoon/evening for me! I enjoyed waiting to hear from you.
I have taken your sentence or in some cases sentences, to help me pray specifically for you each day this week.
This Sunday the plan is to spend time in Psalm 66.
We are beginning a Wednesday morning community group. If you are able to make it, it can start tomorrow – just let me know if you would like to meet tomorrow. The plan is to begin at 9:30 am and conclude at 10:30 am. We will start with a devotional and spend the rest of our time in prayer.
And as a reminder: men, we have an important time for you. It is a community group that meets each Tuesday morning at 8:30 for breakfast. Usually, it is a light breakfast from McDonald’s. This morning, though, we had fresh cinnamon rolls from Becker’s Donuts and Bakery. It is a simple to talk about anything, but always we are encouraged by someone from God’s Word. This morning, one man was able to come but just for a few minutes. He encouraged us from Genesis 3.
Also men, the Thursday evening men’s community group meets again this Thursday at 6:30. This group is studying 1 Thessalonians. It is winding down and will conclude it two weeks. But it will not be over. We will continue to meet for Bible study. The aim so far has been to practice Bible study by doing Bible study.
And…do not miss out on September 10 at 6 pm. This is our picnic and a fire! Not only come prepared for dinner and a side to share, but also ready to share what God has been doing for your soul! And bring a guest or more – those who are without a church home (the unchurched).
