Are you anxious?
Anxious about the election and the world right now? You're not alone! We knew this was coming. So did Jesus. That's why His often repeated words were, 'fear not' and 'my peace I give unto you.' Someone said it well - 'Know Jesus, know peace. No Jesus, no peace.'
Turn up or tune in this coming weekend to hear the final message in our Talking Points series for some post-election words/advice. Nic Gonzales will be leading us in worship, and we also will be commissioning the Briscoe family as our partner missionaries to the Middle East.
For anyone needing extra prayer and maybe even anointing (per James 5:13), our elders are making themselves available to do that on Sunday, November 15 at 1pm at the church. Please RSVP so we are prepared. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reading up on election
Like many of you, I have been reading multiple blogs on all things election. Here are a few that have been informative and helpful for me:
Accepting the Results of the Election
Election Anxiety in the Temple of Pan
Help Me to Love Here and Long for There (My Prayer on Election Day)
The Gift of Peace
I am also claiming Daniel 2:19-21: During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven and said: 'Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.'
My plea these days has been for us to stay unified. That's easier said than done - especially this week!! "To live above with saints we love, oh, that will be glory. To live below with saints we know, well, that's another story."
See you this Sunday online or on campus as we stay together on mission for Jesus.
