Here it is October already! By the end of the month, I will have completed my fall preaching series on the Book of Job. Starting Nov. 4, we get into the busy season of church holidays. On Nov. 4 we will celebrate All Saints’ Day with our customary candle lighting in the memory of loved ones. Next comes Thanksgiving weekend, which includes Reign of Christ (also known as Christ the King) Sunday on Nov. 25. This special day marks the last Sunday of the Christian calendar year, and then we get into Advent. Before long it will be Christmas! I think of my mother’s words long ago, “The older you get, the faster life seems to go.” How right she was!
If you would like to prepare ahead of time by reading scripture for the next two Sundays, please take a look at Job 38-42:6 for Oct. 21 and Job 42:7-17 for Oct. 28. We will talk about how God comes to us in the whirlwinds of life this week and about Job’s restoration the week after. As always, I look forward to being with you all in worship.
Grace and Peace,
