Greetings! I pray that you and all your beloved ones are well and feeling God’s presence and protection in a special way. I am sure all of us are looking forward to being able to gather together to worship the Lord as a family. I am aware of wonderful things that are happening in our churches through “creative and engaging” ministries during this challenging time. Praise God!
We are not yet fully certain how the gradual “back to normal” from our current virtual gatherings will take place. Our BC Administrative Team will keep you informed regarding the latest safe guidelines related to the re-opening of our churches for worship services, which is “planned” for June 6.
Yesterday I was sorting through some old stuff at home when I found a roll of a Kodak photograph film. Wow… Maybe some young people today would not even know what that is. This item could probably fit in a museum. That got stuck in my mind and I pondered about it for a few minutes: Men’s inventions could be good, useful, and attractive for a while until they become obsolete and something else take their place and/or they are substituted by newer versions. In contrast, God’s Word written over centuries in the past is still inspiring and relevant to us. Then, I connected this thought with a Bible verse in Isaiah 40:8: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.” (ESV) Yes, the Scriptures reveal God’s plan for our happiness and salvation through the lessons we can learn from the experiences of His people, messages from His prophets who were led by the Holy Spirit, and specially by the life of Jesus Christ. They show God’s desire to guide, sustain, and encourage us to focus on our daily spiritual journey of faith and dependence on Him, in preparation for eternal life with Him
I pray that during these past weeks we have invested “extra time” in exploring God’s Word and “absorbing” His marvelous promises for us.
Thank you for your continuous and faithful ministry to God’s children.
Please, let’s continue to uplift each other in prayer!
In His Service,
