Hello Wildwood Family!
Last week I lead off with the statement: Wow. It’s hot. This week I can say: Wow. We’ve had a nice break from the extreme heat. Aren’t you glad? Send a word of thanks to the Heavenly Father for that refreshment!
I have been thinking this week of Paul’s words to the followers of Jesus in 1 Timothy 2:1-4. He encourages us there to remember to pray for those in government authority over us so that we might lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity.
There’s been a lot of wackiness going on in our government and culture recently. Let’s remember to pray about it. We don’t want to hear Him tell us one day: Well, there would have been less wackiness, but I didn’t hear from you about it (You do not have, because you do not ask, James 4:2b). Lord, less wackiness PLEASE!
Lisa Goering has been faithfully serving at Wildwood in many roles over the last few years, most recently helping to coordinate our local outreach and helping to lead our A-Team on Sunday mornings. Well, God has called Lisa to take a job at Roosevelt Elementary here in Norman working with children with special needs. The Goering family isn’t going anywhere, it’s just that Lisa will be investing her time at Roosevelt.
This Sunday after the 11:00 service we will have a reception in the Gathering Hall for Lisa. Be sure to drop by and thank her for her excellent and faithful service to our church family. I am confident she will still find ways to serve around Wildwood.
Also Sunday we will conclude our month-long series on Core Truth. The final core truth we will examine is the truth that We Live by Faith. Multiple times the Bible tells us, The just shall live by faith. We will be mining in Hebrews 11 on Sunday (the great faith chapter). I encourage you to read it before Sunday.
Hope you have a great rest of the week!
See you on Sunday (Lord willing)!!
