You have likely heard of “end-of-the-world” predictions; one as recent as 2015. And if that is not enough, at least ten post apocalyptic movies were produced for 2016-2017–most, “R” rated.
Actually, there was an “end-of-the-world” prediction at the time Thessalonians was written–and the church was shaken! Paul calms them (and us!): “Don’t be alarmed by some prophecy, report, or letter.” Rather, become familiar with God’s plan throughout Scripture. God graciously prepares those who look to Him and listen. Sunday we examine God’s hopeful message. In the meantime, prepare a dish for Sunday’s potluck, which will follow a congregational meeting to elect new elders. I can’t wait to see you!
