Have you noticed? The culture seems to be pushing things earlier and earlier. At the end of October, I saw major stores selling Christmas items at 50% off. I also saw winter gear (coats, gloves, etc.) going for 50% off. We used to always see that stuff discounted in December and January. (Tongue in cheek) there’s plenty enough change going on all around us without tampering with and re-writing all the sacred laws of sales. Yikes! Let me know if you see any Easter clothes on sale this month. 😉
Sunday we will continue our Providence series with a message entitled, “Providential Flip”. We will be tackling chapters 5-7 of Esther so please read through those chapters before Sunday. Keep an alert eye out for all the providential evidence of God’s hand.
Please be sure to get involved with the Mission Norman Christmas Shoppe as we seek to touch the lives of 600 kids. 600! Visit wildwoodchurch.org/missionnorman for more info AND check out the latest Wildwood podcast (wildwoodchurch.org/thisiswildwood) to hear some great testimony about how God works through the Christmas Shoppe.
A note for future reference…mark your calendar to assist with decorating the church at noon on Sunday, November 24 (free pizza and drinks provided). Janet and I will be in Sacramento, CA at a FamilyLife Weekend to Remember, so help make up for our absence. The more hands, the merrier! If you can lend a hand (it’s a big job) RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay warm and stay dry and, Lord willing, we’ll see you on Sunday!
