Where is the coffee? And who is Corrie!?

Chuck Sheridan Avatar

It is a good Day; well, the church kitchen is gone. Lunch will now be at my desk, and they keep moving the coffee pot. There are just several weeks left to this season, and we have so much going on. First, let me tell you this Saturday is the stage production, “Corrie remembers.” It is a professional style presentation of Corrie ten Boom, created to explain the life and memories of Corrie that were given late in her life. It has a strong Christian message of forgiveness. I have watched a video of the production and I am excited to see the production, because of the content, shared at our church.

Coming up soon in the annual Fish Fry. It is to benefit the Benevolence Fund. The event is at the church in the fellowship hall, on Tuesday, March 19 at 6 pm. So, bring a friend. And do you have some fish to donate for the fry? Cash donations will be accepted towards the Benevolence Fund.

Coming up is a baptism. One of our young ladies has expressed she has never been baptized and wishes to express her faith by baptism. So put April 7 on your calendar and be ready to witness her expression of faith and obedience in baptism. Weather permitting, this will be in the ocean at San Francisco Beach.

Now do you know this; the youth have been collecting musical instruments and creating their own worship team. What they lack is a good quality bass guitar. You have seen them on the worship platform at Christmas. Two of the youth are regulars in our Sunday worship team. If someone has a good bass to donate or could sell, please write to us or contact Pastor Mayra at the church.

Sunday, we read that Joshua had a challenge. Five kings had united with their armies to defeat Joshua as he tried to protect the Gibeonite city. God spoke to him to tell him not to be afraid. Twice in chapter ten, God repeats to Joshua not to be afraid or dismayed. Why? I suggest it was because there was a reason to be afraid. The five kings may have had a large force. We are not told that in detail, but it is likely.

Joshua and his force marched at night uphill about twenty miles to engage in battle. Not an easy task. Their early arrival was not expected. The battle begins and there is a lot of confusion in the enemy camp. They have been defeated and in their exit from the battle ground, God sent upon them a hailstorm. It says more men died of the hailstorm than of Joshua’s force. It was a God won battle.

In my message Sunday I did not avoid verses 12 and 13. I(t would have been easy to do, but I wanted an explanation myself and shared what I found. You can always hear the explanation on one of the service’s videos. What the emphasis was, was about not being afraid when directed by the Lord.

And there is the point. Will you let your fears of the enemy stop you from realizing your dreams? Which will be greater, your fears or your faith in God to see you be an overcomer? Too often we do not fulfill our dreams of life because we are living in fear. Being afraid can steal your dreams. My faith in God must be bigger than my fears, because God is greater, or my faith is too small. Again I ask, am I looking at my fear or upon Jesus?

Blessings, Chuck. Next Sunday, a special message as we relive a sermon from Corrie ten Boom, given by Susan Sandager.
