Announcements for March 7 – 14, 2014
Greetings from the frozen tundra of Chicago where we have spent the past few days at the North American Lausanne Conference on Jewish Evangelism (www.lcje-na.org/). Probably one of the most important things we gained from this tremendously challenging experience was to be reminded of the HUGE influence that the Old Testament has on the New Testament. Consequently, it also convinced us of the importance of continuing to study the whole counsel of God's Word as we continue along Route 66, our chronological journey through the whole Bible.
On Sunday, March 9, we will continue the study of Solomon's life as we tackle the Song of Solomon. Conversation with a wonderful Israeli Jewish friend during the week provided a great perspective on the book and God's love for His people and His land. So read the whole book and see how you think the Song of Solomon could lead us to a more intimate relationship with God.
Continue to praise the Lord for the rain we got and continue to ask God, in His mercy, to send us more! They certainly do have their share of frozen water here in Chicago, but there doesn't seem to be any way that they can share with California.
Don't forget to read your Proverb-A-Day and consider the lessons that Solomon has to teach us–both positive and not-so-positive.
