Johnny: "Do you think people can predict the future with cards?"
Throughout history there has always been interest in what the future holds. Some have come to believe that the stars or cards or even fortune cookies will give us a peek into what might be coming around the corner. Sometimes things actually do happen in line with what your horoscope might have said, but that's nothing but a coincidence. Is there any way we can know what the future holds?
Scripture is significantly full of prophecies which have been fulfilled and those still yet to come to fruition. While God rarely provides a heads up as to what investment to make or other specific things in our lives, He does have plenty to say about the future of this world and humanity. The fact that God is in control of the future is a great deal of comfort when we look at the news reports. As the saying goes, "we don't know what our future holds, but we know who holds the future".
This Sunday, June 28th, Don Wallis will be continuing his sermon series on prophecy (future sermons in this series will be shared on July 19th and August 23rd). I hope you'll be able to join us -- the swamp cooler and fans will be going strong on this hot weekend!
Go ahead and nap on your own...
My great idea about participating in the Twisp 4th of July parade next week got the cart before the horse. We won't be doing it this year, but I'm still committed for us to find ways to actively participate in our community - specifically in community sponsored events. Please consider ways we might do that in order to bring the light of Christ into the neighborhood!
For you long-time Covenanters...
I grew up going to Family Camp every July at Covenant Beach, our church camp in Des Moines. Almost 30 years ago our conference sold that camp (and Circle C Ranch in Leavenworth) in order to purchase the property where Cascades Camp now stands. However, Covenant Beach is an historic district and Des Moines as converted the property into a park and just restored the old dining hall. If you have a connection to the camp and happen to be on the Westside next week, you may want to be a part of this event and reunion of those who were impacted by the ministry of this wonderful camp.
