Good afternoon, welcome to the recording of yesterday’s congregational service. Dawn led the service, and her introduction is below, followed straight on by John’s continuing study in the letter to the Galatian church. Firstly, there is a worship video of Praise is Rising by Paul Baloche, and Holy Overshadowing by Graham Kendrick.
Every blessing, Andy.
Good evening. The Lord continues to bless us in our restarted Sunday services despite the restrictions churches have to operate under at the moment.
John brought the Word to us today, from Galatians 4, and we had two testimonies from Tony (friend of Jeff and Margaret) and Steve. Both of those recordings are below. Firstly, there are a couple of worship videos, Ron Kenoly singing I will come and bow down, a song I shared this morning in our time of thanksgiving, and secondly, another recent video repeated to help us learn it – Graham Kendrick’s Holy Overshadowing.
God bless you,
A country preacher decided to skip services one Sunday and head for the hills to do some bear hunting. As he rounded the corner on a perilous twist in the trail, he and a bear collided, sending him and his rifle tumbling down the mountainside. Before he knew it, his rifle went one way and he went the other, landing on a rock and breaking both legs. That was the good news. The bad news was the ferocious bear charging at him from a distance, and he couldn`t move.
‘Oh, Lord,’ the preacher prayed, ‘I`m so sorry for skipping services today to come here and hunt. Please forgive me and grant me just one wish … please make a Christian out of that bear that`s coming at me. Please, Lord!’
That very instant, the bear skidded to a halt, fell to its knees, clasped its paws together and began to pray aloud at the preacher`s feet:
‘Dear God, bless this food I am about to receive ….’
