Shepherd’s Corner – october 20, 2019

The last two weeks brought us big Old Testament days of Yom Kippur and Sukkot. I remember when living in New York City, these days were easily recognizable because the schools had those days off since there are many Jewish communities in NYC. Sukkot is translated as Feast of Booths or Tabernacles. It is a week long observance of the harvest and…

It is a joy to be back with a new addition to our family. Thank you for all your prayers! Today won’t be the last time I’ll be preaching on spiritual adoption, but it’s particularly special because of our adoption now being finalized.

Tomorrow is the beginning of Fall and the end of Summer. I know it’s hard to notice the difference here in Southern California, but I wish we can see that God is Lord of the seasons means that he’s also Lord of the seasons of our lives. For those of us who are in various seasons of our lives: studying, working, planning…

I want to encourage the men of our congregation to sign up for next month’s Fall retreat. The theme is an important one, “Men and the Word”. I strongly believe that if you have men who hunger for God’s Word and know how to read it and study it well; then you will have homes with intentional spiritual leaders, friendships with godly…

 From our last summer retreat, we began a theme on being a witness. So in continuation with that we will be focusing on being a witness throughout the next year: Witness to our Community; Tools for Witness; Witness to the World; Witness to My World. Our first event brings us to Reverse Trick or Treating. When is the one time in the…
