Pastoral Epistle – July 21 2021
Greetings in Jesus!
“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “That I will send a famine on the land. Not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD.” Amos 8:11
I perceive that we are in a time of a famine, of hearing the word of the Lord.
We have a calling to adhere to the Word of God and to study His Word deeply.
Please continue praying for our church that we may constantly grow in the knowledge and admonition of the Lord.
By God’s grace we had an exciting in person service last Sunday. I am thankful for God’s blessings of having Holy Communion after a long time. I invite all our parishioners to join in person service and to partake in Holy Communion. Thank you everyone who helped in various ways to support our in person service. Please continue your good work in the house of the Lord.
