Joint Service With The Good Shepherd Church

Joint Service With The Good Shepherd Church

Ah, summertime is here. It brings outdoor activities, fun in the sun, swimming and best of all outdoor picnics. This week we join the Good Shepherd Church in worship at 11:00 AM. After the service is another opportunity to fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

When I traveled to Korea a number of years ago, it was in August. Like the southern US, it was hot and humid. However, it was beautiful with all the trees and flowers in full bloom, blue waters and friendly people. I was fortunate to spend a week in Seogwipo on Jeju-do. All I had known of Korea came from the television show “M*A*S*H” and what I saw was nothing like the show. I truly enjoyed my time there teaching kids at an English Bible Camp.

So many times, people have a wrong opinion of a people group not their own. The joint service Sunday is one of the best ways for us to get to know each other. A way for us to experience each other’s culture and food. We may have our differences, but the one commonality we have is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

In Revelation 7:9 the Bible says, “After this I looked, and there was a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language, which no one could number, standing before the throne and before the Lamb.” May our time together today prepare us for the day when we worship before the Lamb together!

Onward and Upward!
