Pastor’s note for November 12

Church family and friends,

It’s been fun this week, spending time with our Orangevale school kids daily for Week of Spiritual Emphasis.  As I’ve been sharing stories each day, one theme that has come out is the importance of ‘waiting’.  A phone call was a great example.  If you have a student, ask them about the phone!

Some people weren’t willing to wait a few minutes.  Some people were rewarded after waiting hours and some after waiting weeks.

Here is a great promise found in Isaiah:

Isaiah 40:31 (NASB)

Yet those who wait for the Lord
Will gain new strength;
They will mount up with wings like eagles,
They will run and not get tired,
They will walk and not become weary.

I hope that you’ll join us for Friday night vespers and a Sabbath worship thought to conclude our Week of Spiritual Emphasis. We will be continuing our focus on Gratitude and tie in our themes from this week. We hope to see you and your family.

Pastor Jon
