Beautiful weather for December brought a crowd of onlookers out to the Dickens in Dundee Parade today. We had two entries from Faith and passed out a lot of candy canes and fliers. May Jesus bless the children with hungry hearts for the gifts He gives to all who believe. “Create in me a pure heart, O God” Psalm 51:10 NIV.

Noah – The Man, The Ark, The Flood
By: Rev. Kurt Klaus
(Includes subtitles in English) A five centuries-old man building a huge boat on the startling news of coming floodwaters – sounds like the makings of one remarkable story. It is. Jump in and get your feet wet with Noah: The Man, The Ark, The Flood, the latest Bible study from the Men’s Net Work.
Hosted by Rev. Kurt Klaus and filmed on location at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, this four-part Bible study from the Men’s NetWork looks at the biblical character of Noah, his life and times, and the remarkable vessel he built to escape the waters of the flood. Along the way, commentary from numerous specialists considers the issue of extreme human age, how building such a watercraft was possible, the extent of the flood’s reach, how a single vessel could hold such a multitude of animals, and the phenomena of far-flung flood stories in other cultures.
Date: Sunday, July 6 2014 for 5 Sundays.
Time: 9:00 a.m.
Place: Faith Lutheran Church

All seeds are incredible creations. Each one develops into a plant that grows at n amazing rate, with intricate design and for a specific purpose. Trees, fruits, flowers and vegetables all are given to bless us and help sustain us. Many plants also contain elements that are use to heal us and help restore our health and strength. But seeds must be planted and gardens must be tended and then harvested for all this to be possible.
Remember that seeds were made by God for his glory. Even we ourselves are born of a tiny seed in the womb of our mother for his glory. But our seed is corrupted by sin and subject to wither and die. So Jesus said “Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds.” The reason the Lord came was to die for our sin that many would be made righteous in the sight of God. The planting of his body in a grave and his resurrection from that plot of ground brought God glory and is bringing many children to become living witnesses to his presence, here in the earth and in heaven forever.
Gardens require love, work and care if they are going to be fruitfull. Yet so few seeds can bless so many! Praise God with every seed you plant in a garden. Most of all, sow your own life like a seed that others may see your good works and in turn give glory to God.
Pastor Mark Frusti
“Unto him that sits on the throne, and unto the Lamb, be blessing and honor and power and glory for ever and ever” Rev 5:13
We worship the Lamb who reigns. He also remains the great Shepherd of our soul.
According to Watchman Nee “To worship the creature rather than the creator is an inbred tendency in us. All the conflict in this book of Revelation turns on this issue.”
But the Lamb is worthy because he triumphed over every rival. Trust Him to deliver your soul to himself in Heaven.
