OUR CONVERSATION FOR JUNE 2017: SOMETHING SOMETHING OLD. SOMETHING NEW. SOMETHING MORE. Sometimes what feels comfortable is not healthy. Even so, we slip into the way we’ve always done things because it seems to be easier. And, don’t we all want easier in this complicated life? The uncomfortable places are the open door to growth and strength—it’s where we take the leap of faith. BUT. And, it’s a big but—if we stay in the comfortable place—we will find ourselves deep in anxiety and eventually stress. Because, what matters is missed. Would you do it, if, you knew it would all work out? The grid of this conversation comes from the Old and New Testament—the full, complete unabridged story of God—the crosspoint of life. Sunday Service @ 10:30am @ 1219 3rd St Salem 97304

As we dive in–keep in mind:
Hezekiah: Eternal One, I beg you to remember how I have followed the path You set before me, and how I did so with all my heart. Remember how I have done what You wanted with sincerity of purpose every step of the way. Then Hezekiah broke down and wept. He wept and wept. Then a different word from the Eternal came upon the prophet Isaiah.
Eternal One: Go and tell Hezekiah that the Eternal, the God of your ancestor David, says: “I have heard your prayer, and I have seen your tears. I’ve decided to add another 15 years to your life. Not only that, but I will also rescue you and this city and not allow you to fall under the control of the Assyrian king. I Myself will protect this city, Jerusalem. You’ll know that I, the Eternal One, will keep My promise by this sign: I will make the sun’s shadow—which has climbed these steps of Ahaz’s stairway—go backward 10 steps.”
