One of my favorite Christian recording artists is Steve Taylor. About 20 years ago he decided to release a live album. As you may be aware, most "live" albums are later enhanced in the studio with extras like improved instrumentation and even enhanced crowd noise. Steve decided that he wanted to release a truly live recording - warts and all. So, since this was a "liver" album than any other live album, that's what he called it: "LIVER". Steve has a quirky sense of humor and knew most people would read that title as liver (as in the organ), but he was fine with that.
Spiritually speaking, you may look back at your life before you knew Jesus as less alive than you are now. We've been born again into an abundant life because of Jesus' death and resurrection. So you, too, are liver than you were!
This Sunday, November 10th, we'll be looking at the prophet Ezekiel's descriptive imagery of how God rescued Israel from a doomed existence and made her into His beautiful, royal bride. It's also a description for what He's done for you and me. I hope you'll be present with us for this wonderful reflection on God's saving love He's given to us.
Special Offering Clayton Thornton's Family
As most of you know, a young father of two, Clayton Thornton, died in a car accident on October 27th. We will be collecting a special offering this Sunday, November 10th, for the family and their related expenses. Make checks payable to "Hannah Kinzle". And thank you for remembering Clayton's family in your prayers, especially his young daughters Emma and Tedi.
Everyone is welcome to our annual meeting during which we celebrate the past year and look forward with anticipation to the next. Members will be voting on the 2020 Church Budget and Church Council positions.
Collecting Shopping Bags
The Cove is in constant need of used paper and plastic shopping bags, including produce bags. While some of the recipients remember to bring their own bags, many do not. Please bring in your used bags to the church and they will be brought to the Cove.
