The Pastor’s Garage October 27th, 2018

On Wednesday we dropped off Liz’s family for their trek back to
Pennsylvania. It was a really great visit and so good for all of us to have
them here. It was really special having her brother here considering his
journey with cancer over the past year and a half. I am amazed at the
strength and courage he has which I know is a grace that God has given him.
I hope some of that courage has rubbed off onto me.

Yesterday I decided to take some time on my dirt bike and enjoy what might
have been our last really nice day (although today looks pretty nice too).
I explored the Pipestone and some trails around Crooked Lake. Check out the
shots I have attached. I was just in awe of the beauty that surrounds us
which many times we just stop seeing. I’d encourage you to take the time to
enjoy some of our local beauty! All of this given to us by God for our
enjoyment – and something which speaks to us about His character and power.
As someone once said to me, “drink deeply of God’s grace.”

Tomorrow, Bruce Lungren will be sharing in our service about the work the
he and his wife have been doing and about missions in the world today. I am
excited to hear what God has put on his heart.

This week is our annual halloween warm-up spot. Feel free to stop by and
enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by the fire from 4-9pm.

On Saturday morning we’ll be having a men’s breakfast starting at 7:30 am.
Feel free to invite a friend. Kevin Hassler from Kipling will be sharing
with us. I’m looking forward to hearing him share.

As always, please uphold the service in prayer! Appreciate your diligence
in this.

God bless,

Pastor Dave
