Pastor Heather from Living Faith Community Church, Baxter, Ontario, recently sent this note to her congregation.
I sense an increasing fear or worry among the population recently. Fears about ISIS, worry about Ebola, and concern over the weather. And amidst all this worry-inducing news, we receive word this week that the world is experiencing a chocolate shortage! We all are in need of a reminder that God’s grace is available to us all. Join us for worship this Sunday when I speak about “Grace in the Midst of Fear.” (Chocolate will be provided.)
Grace in the midst of fear. Is there such a thing? Yes, indeed. It’s just like God says.
My grace is enough; it’s all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness…just let Christ take over! And so the weaker you get, the stronger you become. (From 2 Corinthians 12:9, MSG)
Prayer – If we get down, Lord, let it be onto our knees. Amen
