    I’m writing this on the 4th and hope you all had a good Independence Day!  We not only celebrate our independence from British rule (nothing personal against Peter or any other Brits in the congregation!) gained in the Revolutionary War 240 years ago, but also the freedoms we’ve enjoyed as a democratic republic.  July 4th weekend is also a reminder to me of our freedom in Christ!

    We honored our high school graduates yesterday in services at GCN (check out the attachment with those grads listed)! That’s always one of my favorite services! A young band led us in worship and offered up songs to God and to us. Pastor Brian prayed for each grad individually. We broke bread together afterward in the Life Center. It was sweet! Thanks to all those who made a special morning like that possible!

    One of the passages I shared comes from Jeremiah 6:16 — “This is what the Lord says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look. Ask for the ancient paths. Ask where the good way is and walk in it and you will find rest for your souls.'”

    May 31, 2016

    I hope you all enjoyed a nice three-day Memorial weekend! And I hope we all, in the midst of our cookouts and family time and fun, remembered those who have given their lives in the defense of the freedom that allows us to enjoy those things.
