Well, today was interesting to say the least. It was one of those bad weather days. They were calling for freezing rain starting after noon. Unfortunately it didn’t hang on that long and started about 9 this morning. Our van had already gone out so we had a good attendance for Sunday School. We took the students back home after that. We only had 13 for worship. I led worship from the piano this morning for a change.
Pam came to church for the first time in three weeks (the first week we were on vacation.) It was good to have her back. Last week while she was in the hospital, she said the song “The Love of God” ran through her mind quite a bit, so we sang that to begin our worship time. I’ve included a clip from the Billy Graham Homecoming Tribute.
It is one of my favorite gospel songs. Then we sang a group of older praise and worship songs; I Will Sing of the Mercies, I Will Serve Thee, Make Me a Servant, and People Need the Lord. For the offering we sang We Are an Offering. Then we sang I Love to Tell the Story. We looked at how love is always worth the risk and how we can show love to those around us. I challenged all of us to invest in the lives of those who are outside a relationship with God. It’s important for all of us to do. We finished the service with the hymn, Jesus Saves. It was a nice service.
The weather got worse this afternoon, so we canceled the rest of the activities today. I’m enjoying relaxing and resting, it’s been a hectic week. I’m looking forward to things getting back to “normal” this week.
Thank you for your continued prayers for Pam. She is doing much better, but still gets tired easily. Have a blessed week.
