"This Week" with Pastor Frank... December 6, 2017

Dear friends,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!  This past week we entered the holy season of Advent, the beginning of the new Church year.  Advent is a time of remembering the birth of the baby in Bethlehem as well as anticipating the coming again of the Lord at the end of the age.  The sermon was called "The Power of Hope" and used two prophecies of the coming of the Lord, one given by Isaiah to the captives in Babylon and the other given by Jesus in Mark 13.  

This week we will continue with readings from Isaiah 40:1-11 and Mark 1: 1-8.  The beautiful Isaiah passage starts with Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God.  Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that she has served her term, and that her penalty is paid...A voice cries out in the wilderness, prepare the way of the LORD. 

I encourage you all to read this passage ahead of time.  Mark's Gospel begins with the story of John the Baptist, "the voice of one crying in the wilderness."  

The sermon is "Comfort and Joy".  Come and see...

Brenda and I want to thank you all for your prayers and help while we have both been struggling with strong cases of the flu.  It's been hard, but not nearly as hard as it would be were we not connected to the Lord and to the Body of Christ.  Thank you all.

Faithfully in Jesus Christ,

Pastor Frank
