Perhaps you have heard it said, “We are always in a crisis, just coming out of a crisis, or about to be in a crisis.” So life seems to be! And, this tests our faith or confronts our faith. That has been our theme for the last few weeks. But, in the midst of crisis, there is comfort. We will turn to Isaiah 41 Sunday to see the source of our comfort in the midst of crisis. Isaiah 41:10 is one of my all-time favorite promises of God. Let’s explore that Sunday. Be in your place in both Sunday School and worship this Sunday.
As we think of crisis, we certainly remember our friends in Florida and other parts of the Southeast, now in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael. Our hearts break at the pictures of the devastation. Many of you will want to immediately do something. We are receiving money that we will send directly to partners in Florida. One of the great things about being part of a church in the Southern Baptist Convention is that we are part of a network of churches who can mobilize quickly to be involved in the relief. If you would like to donate, just simply designate on your envelope or memo section that the gift is intended to be used for Disaster Relief.
Finally, pray for Ray Swift, Laura Vidrine, and Ashley Pittman who are leaving Friday to be on mission in Haiti next week.
