Welcome back. It’s been quite the nice week weather-wise. As a bonus this week, we had our grandson Robert with us. We got to take him to the Strong Museum in Rochester. The Strong Museum is dedicated to play – all kinds of play. There is a toy hall of fame and e-game hall of fame and well worth the admission price. We also had a chance to take Robert mini-golfing. He did a great job. That was a spontaneous moment because we had planned to take him to the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum. This is a great place to come and learn the history of lumbering in northern Pennsylvania.
Yesterday our local churches got together for a picnic. We had a great time and we even had a little jam session. My iPad however had an unfortunate mishap with the ground. I was still able to use it for my notes this morning.
Speaking of this morning, we had a wonderful time of Spirit-led worship this morning. I preached from the book of Joshua. We continued a series we have been calling “This Ain’t Hollywood.” Somehow I got it into my brain that Rahab’s name was Rachel. My family tried to correct me, but I was in the zone. The point of the sermon was that we are called to be strong and courageous – we are called to have faith – but faith’s power is only unlocked through obedience to God. In his letter, James tells us that faith without action (without obedience) is dead.
This week is a busy week – Pam and I have some specialized training and then I am doing some driving this week. And at some point, we want to get to the McKean County Fair. Anna put in an entry again this year.
That about wraps it up. Have a great week.
