Welcome to Hope Talk
Well I am back in the office and trying to keep my head focused. Wow this bug has quite a kick to it and Maria and I are still trying to get back to normal. There have been a lot of jokes going back and forth as we try to talk sensibly about how we are feeling. To get up after 12 hours of sleeping and stare at each other and then say, “I am going to take a nap” is crazy but it is the way of getting healthy. Keep praying for those still under the illness. Maybe Rachel can list all those who are still sick and needing God’s help and aid. Sunday is going to be fun as we meet together according to your ability. Thanks so much to Ian for overseeing the service. I thought it was a well-done time as we enjoyed it at home and Brian did a great job in leading worship although my singing voice was not up to par and Maria was not impressed. Sorry to miss all the guests and visitors as our lives have been different for a couple of weeks now. Sunday we will return to John 17, Jesus Prays, pt.2 and work through a few verses and look at many verses and concepts as we are allowed to learn from God praying to God. Mighty things. Blessings.
