There are changes happening right now that are making a difference. Imagine what it might be like 30 years from now, after we have cut emissions in half every 10 years! 2050 is not looking so bad, maybe. Richard Clarke will give the talk and Cat Barnett will lead this service.
Worship services can be seen each Sunday at 10 a.m. viafacebook.com/lpcchapala, or at www.lpcchapala.org.
LPC devotionals are posted to these sites Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings. LPC continues our series on the Psalms. Pastor Carolyn Hansen will preach on Psalm 91, “My God, in Whom I Trust,” counterpoint to Psalm 90, the Psalm of Lament, one of the best-loved psalms in the world, promising deliverance from trouble for those who rest in the shadow of the Almighty. So how do we make the Lord our refuge in such difficult times?
We maintain daily contact with parishioners via emails, asking if “all is well.” If no response, we follow-up by email or telephone.
Abundant Life Church
What do you think about a life of service to the Lord? Paul the apostle felt that it was a special gift given to him to be able to work for God. The way that we perceive our responsibility has a large impact on our ability to complete it. Some jobs seem too big for us to accomplish, but with God and a steady consistent approach we can do it all. The apostle Paul actually states that he can do all things through Christ. He was not boasting, just committed. Join us this Sunday for our Live stream service and be encouraged to take on a job that it bigger than you can imagine. The service is on our Facebook page, as well as our YouTube channel. Sunday, May 3, the service broadcast will begin at 10 a.m. for English at abundantlifechapala.com and 11:30 a.m. for Spanish at vidaabundantechapala.com.
On March 4, 1933, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was sworn in as the 32nd President of the United States of America. During his inaugural address he uttered these famous words, “So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.” He was trying to bring calm and assurance to a nation ravaged by economic disaster.
Moses wrote to the nation of Israel and spoke of fear too. Deuteronomy 10:12-13, “Now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require from you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all His ways and love Him, and to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul ....?”
These men were referring to two different kinds of fear. FDR was talking about a natural fear that paralyzes a person to the point of inaction. Moses was talking about a spiritual reverence that results in holiness. Don’t let the first type of fear keep you from the second. Fear the Lord, reverence Him and be blessed.
Satsang is Wednesdays, 3 to 4 p.m., presented by Richard Clarke using Zoom. This week’s session, Wednesday, May 6, is on “There is no world apart from the mind.”
