It’s Sunday night – It’s our Sabbath’s day rest. One of the things that I did was step away from the technology – at least from the time I woke up until just a few minutes ago. Pam and I are leading a study on Sunday mornings for our young adults called 24/6 by Matthew Sleeth. It is a great reminder that each one of us needs a stop day. I especially need a stop day from technology – after the crazy week – and also fighting with technology all week – it was a good way to spend the day.
I don’t know why, but this evening I wanted to listen to Advent music. It’s hard to believe that Advent is just two weeks away. The emphasis here is on Advent music – not Christmas music. Advent music prepares our heart for his coming. I found a great playlist on Spotify – very different from the music I normally listen to and I am listening to it as I write this.
Just a few minutes ago, I went out and looked at the beautiful full moon – a super moon some are calling it. It was amazing to stand out there in the chilly air – the moon lighting up the McCrae Brook Valley – beautiful and sureal – and just to add to effect – dogs barking – and echoing up and down the valley. It was really a way to end my Sabbath.
This past week has been interesting to say the least. One of the great things that happened this week is I did my first driving for the local school transportation company. It has caused me to adjust my schedule but I am starting to work it into a routine.
This morning we had a good service at McCrae Brook as we honored our veterans. I preached a message called “Stand Up, Stand Out, Stand Firm.” For the first time since we moved here we will be posting a video of the message. I am looking forward to sharing the messages with you.
This week Pam and I get ready to preach at our community Thanksgiving service. That will be next Tuesday night. We would ask for your prayers as we prepare for this community event. Well, that is about it. I pray you all have a great week!
