"Hey!!!! I am on your team..."

Our youth had a tour of duty recently and it was a blast, literally...

hope...


Youth is in full swing, we had our Amazing Race (pictures coming) and Junior Youth camp out to kick things off and everything went well. It is a new year, new groups, new youth stepping up and others stepping away its always so interesting and amazing what God is doing in and around our lives, and how we respond. Well another youth year, new journey of sorts...I guess as I fumble through I look forward and hope...and that is what our year is about; HOPE...

God's Wrath...

The anger of the Lord is instrumental, hypothetical, conditional, and subject to His will...Far from being an expression of "petulant vindictiveness," the message of anger includes a call to return and to be saved...It is not expression of irrational, sudden, and instinctive excitement, but a free and deliberate reaction of God's justice to what is wrong and evil. For all its intensity, it may be averted by prayer. There is no divine anger for anger's sake. Its meaning is...instrumental: to bring about repentance; its purpose and consummation is its own disappearance.
-Abraham J. Heschel
