Rev. Moore, sends daily meditations with music from our minister of music Timothy G. Ruff Welch to our 250-plus members. Friar James Twyman also helps out with the daily meditations.

Continuing our series on the Psalms, Pastor Carolyn’s sermon title for Sunday, June 14 is taken from Psalm 42:3, When can I go and meet with God?
We all have been concerned about how our neighbors are surviving the economic turmoil of businesses closing over the past weeks. LPC has stepped up our feeding ministry in response to the need. Our doors may have closed, but our kitchen has been open! Just two people have cooked hundreds of meals for local people - including the families of the kids in our literacy program, and for the men and women in two local drug rehab centers.

One of the surprises for many of us as we’ve delved deeper into the history of the United States of America is how deeply racism and white supremacy is woven into so much of the legal and cultural framework of the country. Racism is pervasive and yet at times seems hidden in plain sight - until it explodes in often destructive and violent ways. In Jungian psychology such an aspect would be called a “shadow;” in an individual the shadow would be qualities that the person hides, represses, and denies. Could racism and white supremacy be shadow qualities in a nation or a culture? How might we address the presence of such a shadow; how might we “work for a cure?”
Roy Haynes will be Service Leader.

Abundant Life Church
What or who is the most important in your life. The world seems to have decided that they are most important and don’t think about others. If we feel that we are the most important or even if we state that your family is the most important in our lives, we fall short of God´s plan. God celebrates those who have Him first. Let´s choose today to be celebrated by God!
Our service will be both on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel. Sunday, June 14, the service broadcast will begin at 10 a.m. for English at abundantlifechapala.com and 11:30 a.m. for Spanish at vidaabundantechapala.com.
It’s almost impossible to avoid what’s going on in the world today. I know people who are angry, sad or confused. And the question comes, “If you believe in God why doesn’t He do something?” That assumes that the sovereign Lord of the universe operates in ways that the questioner thinks are right. But consider what God says in Isaiah 55, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” No, I don’t know why God doesn’t intervene the way we think He should, but I do know this, earlier in Isaiah 55 He tells us what we should do: “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” There’s coming a day when all wrongs will be made right but today each of us needs to repent of sin and put our trust in the Lord. He knows what He’s doing.
