While I know that doesn’t sound like a rousing call to battle, it is this time of year. With the DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME change happening this Saturday night, instead of “springing forward” our clocks like we do in the spring, we get to “fall back” in this fall time-change. That means we can recoup an hour of sleep we lost in the spring…or stay out trick-or-treating an hour longer Saturday night…or show up to church an hour early Sunday morning. Life’s full of tough choices, isn’t it?
Speaking of choices, here are some wonderful ministry opportunities we all get to choose from this week.
In about two weeks we’ll be hosting two get-acquainted meetings with local fast-food managers—a light brunch on Wednesday morning, November 11th and an afternoon coffee with snacks on Thursday afternoon, November 12th. If you’d like to help serve those who serve us in the neighborhood restaurants, please let Pastor Bob know (email ) or indicate your interest on the Connect Card on Sundays.
One final opportunity. One of our great single male Moody Aviation students is in need of a room to rent starting December. Luke’s landlady passed away last month and the family is selling the house. So, if you have a room or know of someone who might, please send Luke an email and let him know of the possibility ( ).
As we head into a wild week in the life of our country, ponder the words of the prophet Isaiah, chapter 40, and take comfort in the majesty and power of our God compared to the shifting fortunes of world leaders:
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood since the earth was founded?
22 He [the Lord] sits enthroned above the circle of the earth,
and its people are like grasshoppers.
He stretches out the heavens like a canopy,
and spreads them out like a tent to live in.
23 He brings princes to naught
and reduces the rulers of this world to nothing.
24 No sooner are they planted,
no sooner are they sown,
no sooner do they take root in the ground,
than he blows on them and they wither,
and a whirlwind sweeps them away like chaff.
25 “To whom will you compare me?
Or who is my equal?” says the Holy One.
Keep trusting in the Holy One!
