This Sunday at Church: Express Gratitude for those who pick up the elderly to Church

I started my walk in a church that had two vans: one for kids who came from poorer and/or working parent homes and one for elderly.

Our current church, we don’t have vans or specific ministries, but there are a few people who get picked up for services by a few others. My wife and I often help, too, especially with getting one woman to prayer services on Wednesday nights. (She likes being able to grab a slice of pizza and some water from the youth dinner, too!)

I tell our families who pick up these folks regularly “Thank you,” because my wife and I have done it at so many churches, and we are too involved (kept busy?) at this church to be available most of the time.


This Sunday at Church I want to encourage you to do the following: Express Gratitude for those who pick up the elderly to Church. Our church use to have a ministry where the church van would pick up members from the elderly homes to church.  I think those who do such a ministry should get […]

This Sunday at Church: Express Gratitude for those who pick up the elderly to Church

VerseD: Numbers 6:24-26

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Numbers 6:24‭-‬26, ESV

Seek the Lord, and He will bless You with His presence, His grace, and His peace.

Advent 2022 – Day 1: Isaiah 9:1

But there will be no gloom for her who was in anguish. In the former time he brought into contempt the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the latter time he has made glorious the way of the sea, the land beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

Isaiah 9:1, ESV

At Advent, we look back at why Jesus had to come, that He came, and then that He will come again.

As humans, we have a tendency to let those around us influence us more than God.

Look at Eve with the serpent.

Look at the brothers of Joseph, even though Reuben had tried to save him, still going along with his brothers.

Look at Israel as a nation, constantly turning to the gods of their neighbors.

Zebulun and Naphtali were the same, living way in the north of Israel, what came to be known as Galilee, often overrun with Gentile pagans, and they frequently gave in to their practices rather than worship the one true God.

Yet, God tells them that in the last days they would be blessed.

There is a reminder that we all fall short of God, that we need His help to be good, righteous, holy. We may wander far from Him, yet God comes to us. He makes a way for us. God comes and shares His glory.

If we are willing to see His light in our dark world.
