The Doctrine of Glory

I will never forget that evening. I can't think of a moment when I was more blown away by a musical composition. I don't recall the composer or the conductor, but I was at a performance played by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. My ticket put me in the first row and it was worth it. The music was powerful, foreboding, amazing, haunting, compelling, and glorious, all at the same time. There were moments when I wished this night would never end, and moments when I wanted to get up and run out of the concert hall.

Session Summary August 2018

Dan lead us in a summary of Chapter 7 of “The Shepherd Leader.” “The church is called to serve God in three ways; in worship, in nurturing the saints, and witnessing to the world.” p.157 We prayed for several members of the church by name and asked God to give us the wisdom to lead his flock. The new library shelves and new visitors center in the foyer is in the works. Due to the generous donations the final product will be upgraded. Look for them before September arrives. Pastor Mark will plan an Outreach to Fort Gordon Brainstorming Session for later this month. We need those who work on base or are active in the military to give us their ministry ideas.
