Yesterday during worship Dave & Sabra Horn joined us; as he prepared to sing, he said, “Welcome to this feast of the Word!” No truer phrase has been spoken! Yesterday, we witnessed God’s claim on little Onnika through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, we heard more from Mark’s Gospel, we celebrated the Feast of Forgiveness through bread and wine, and we did all of that in the community of fellow believers! What a morning it was. It was as real gift to my own life of faith; thanks for sharing in our ministry and encouraging my heart also.
Many of us gathered last night, also, and enjoyed a wonderful evening of fellowship, great music, and a wonderful message of hope and love as Dave and Sabra performed for our Summer Music Festival. Thank you to our missions committee who did a wonderful job preparing the meal and lining up the entertainment. It was a great event and those present were truly blessed!
