4/27/2014 – The Gift that Keeps on Giving

Have you ever experienced a great reversal? Recently one of my neighbors put a for sale sign in their yard. They said they were retiring and moving to the country. They had received an unexpected windfall that changed everything. Another friend was diagnosed with a terrible stage four cancer and was given a 17 percent chance of surviving. That was sixteen years ago. A great reversal!

The disciples experienced a great reversal. Their world had fallen apart but then Jesus reappeared. Their joy could not be contained. They gained a new lease on life and a new mission. How do you find such joy in your faith? There’s a secret to it. That’s  the topic for Sunday. Sunday School begins at 9:15. Oh yes, tomorrow the FPCD Women’s Ministries holds a plant and bake sale to raise money for missions. So come prepared to shop before and after worship, which begins at 10:30. Can’t wait to see you!
