09 Oct Trusting God for his promises!
Blessed Saturday y’all!
And what a beautiful morning it is. Please go out & absorb all you can of God’s great gifts today & make sure there’s some thanking & praising in the midst of all that.
As we head into weekly worship & some sign that freedoms are being restored…
- The video for tomorrow’s message will be ready for those worshipping remotely with friends in their homes. The link is… https://youtu.be/i2FzzluecWA
As always…if you’re in doubt, go to the www.livingwaterwagga.org.au site. Find the Resources pull-down bar & click on Sermons. This week’s worship materials will be the uppermost left-hand box & click on what you need & you’re set. Sometime…I might not get this email out soon enough…So the website is always your best option.
- This week is Giving Beyond Ourselves…we’re sharing for the Tamaris Pfeiffer Tait Bursary Fund at the Conservatorium. Thanking God for Tamaris by enabling folks to receive and foster the gifts of beauty & awe found in music is a way we serve more widely.
- For the next 7 weeks we’re spending time exploring the Apostle’s Creed. Every year our worship/teaching schedule includes parts of our Biblical/Doctrinal identity as followers of Jesus in the Lutheran family. We’re adding a special element this year: You!
Luther asked throughout his catechisms, “What does this mean?” Every week someone from the Living Water family will share what it means to them to confess one part of the Creed. I’m excited to hear from you. If you haven’t signed up yet to be one of our sharers…please talk to Philippa soon. This week…Paul Prenzler.
- The Steering Team is working closely within the revised Coronavirus guidelines to make sure worship is a safe place. When in doubt…ask.
And…when you think you’ve just about run out of steam… Isaiah 41:17-18 seemed to speak loudly to me this morning:
“When the poor and needy search for water and there is none,
and their tongues are parched from thirst,
then I, the Lord, will answer them.
I, the God of Israel, will never abandon them.
I will open up rivers for them on the high plateaus.
I will give them fountains of water in the valleys.
I will fill the desert with pools of water.
Rivers fed by springs will flow across the parched ground.”
I’m claiming that promise of presence & provision in this season that feels pretty parched in so many ways.
