    is an absolutely beautiful Monday morning I reached outside just now to get the mail and was struck by the beauty of the purple flowers Emmalina planted the gorgeous blue sky with white fluffy clouds and the perfect not too hot not too cool temperature Insert sigh of contentment here Add to that some memories of a fun weekend and plans for a holiday just a few days from now Red Deer gospel music jamboree and it makes for a pretty pleasant Monday morning However I know that not everybody is experiencing a good Monday Certainly many others are experiencing sorrow hardship poverty bereavement stress crisis sickness or discouragement Life is a patchwork of happy and sad good times and hard It s easy to be thankful on Marvellous Mondays but the challenge is counting our blessings on Melancholy Mondays Terrible Tuesdays or Worse Wednesdays We need to remember that even though life consists of ups and downs mountains and valleys Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and forever Hebrews 13 8 And we need to remember that at just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don t give up Galatians 6 9 So whether you are having a Majestic or Miserable Monday

updates While we were down in Alabama we noticed that folks in the South of the US are very friendly I got called sweetie and sir a lot The only thing that they are not polite about is politics I was privy to one of those conversations at the wedding reception and signalling to change lanes Time and time again folks would weave in and out of their lanes without hitting their blinker Some did to be fair but they were the minority We saw a number of signs reminding people to use their signals to change lanes but maybe those signs were just for the tourists Sometimes we want indications from God of where He s going Often times people ask Is it God s will for a certain thing or another hoping that they can open their Bible and find a quick yes buy that couch in Proverbs somewhere But God s will doesn t work that way He gives us very basic signals in the Bible as to what His will is for instance the stuff that is for sure NOT His will sin and the stuff that is His will that all should be saved In between those two are many decisions that we wish God would turn on His holy blinker for us to clearly see However like a good parent God doesn t dictate our life but He lets us make our own decisions It s called free will and reap the benefits of good ones and suffer the results of the bad ones And like a good parent He has provided us a framework from within which we choose along with

the areas that are less travelled to get a feel for the area Multiple times on our epic journey down to Mobile Alabama Foley actually and even more actually Elberta and another little town called Lillian we got off the interstate highway and drove down secondary highways getting from where we were to where we wanted to go One such road led us to Philadelphia I m not even kidding Another type of interstate is booking hotels online Most major chains subscribe to services like Travelocity and Hotwire that allow you to search for good prices right online Well for the Black Hills of South Dakota there was no room at the inns This forced me to find Dick and Liz Smith I searched Google for other hotels and found one in Hot Springs called the Smith Fargo Suites We always had to find a suite room because there were six of us I checked in online but they didn t ask for a visa card or a confirmation at all A note popped up saying We ll give you a call I didn t get a call so the next morning I called to see if our reservation was legitimate After a time of looking Dick said that he had gotten it I told him that we d be there around 8 30pm and he said OK we ll already be gone home by then so we ll leave the key in the mailbox I said Do you need anything else thinking he d want a credit card He said nope and that was the end of the call So with a bit of apprehension we pulled into Hot Springs and drove to the address and then we couldn t find it Finally one of the kids said I think I saw a sign back there can you see it here and we found the mysterious mailbox and the key and in we went Then we couldn t find our room Dick s instruction sheet was somewhat unhelpful but we eventually did It was great The hotel used to be a boarding house and as such has a huge common area as well as wonderful thematic rooms decked out in antiques They run the antique shop below Michelle has pictures lots of pictures Had we stayed on the internet interstate and booked a chain hotel room we would have missed one of the best adventures of our trip and there was a parade the next morning to boot The Christian life is the road less travelled Society tells us that we should always take the easy path the most comfortable road but Christ calls us to the narrow way the road less travelled On this road we put others first instead of ourselves We purposely put ourselves in uncomfortable circumstances for the sake of the Gospel We give our money away We spend our time in worship and in service We pick up our crosses daily And there is no better way to live God has

below If I Can The theme of Vic G s sermon yesterday ties in as well More Than Conquerors God truly does enable us to be conquerors overcomers in this life if we lean on His strength The scripture I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me comes to mind Philippians 4 13 When I think of that verse however I m humbled to remember my absolute FRUSTRATION and even anger towards it back in January 2013 I had just undergone an emergency colostomy and the days following the surgery were among the darkest bleakest days I d ever experienced Although my medical and surgical history is extensive the colostomy was definitely the most life altering procedure I had endured Those of you who know me well know things are BAD when I ignore my laptop and email The nurse brought me pamphlets to read on colostomies I ignored them I guess I thought if I didn t acknowledge that I had a colostomy it would go away but it didn t The Holy Spirit kept gently reminding me of Philippians 4 13 but my desperate response was repeatedly NO I CAN T God was ever so patient and encouraged me bit by bit day by day until I gradually came to accept the situation Those were indeed challenging weeks and months Medical expenses were sky high the yuck and inconvenience factors were higher and colostomy pouch leakage crises were thrown in on a regular basis Waiting for the colostomy reversal was difficult especially when surgery was promised for April May or June but didn t happen until the end of October Looking back now I can fully attest that Philippians 4 13 is TRUE Instead of feeling anger towards that verse it s now a fond reminder to me of God s faithfulness Not many days go by that I don t give thanks for having had the colostomy reversal and the memory of the yuckiness has faded quite a bit but I now recognize that the whole ordeal indisputably demonstrates that God loves me and gave me the courage and strength to overcome And somehow knowing that I survived that trial gives me reassurance that God will be with me through all the trials I will face in the future We ALL go through various trials Mine are certainly not unique But please know that no matter what you

    when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world So it turns out that all the women in the group had given birth and every one of them remembered that it hurt A lot So was Jesus being a man and all wrong Then one of the gals who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent and insightful said When I look at my kids she has 3 I don t think of the pain they caused me I think of the joy I have in having them in my family We quickly made note of it Christ endured the cross because he knew the joy of bringing us into the family was worth the pain and suffering that he was going to endure because of our sin Yes it was our sin that caused his pain but it was the joy of bringing us into the family that made that pain worth every second of it Jesus only had to do it once Marilyn did it three times oops My wife did it four times My Grandma Haugan did it 14 Such love Joell Last Sunday s Service Audio from Sunday s service Video

mailing list contact the This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it Hello ComBappers Outside our church this afternoon is a murder of crows making a racket Which reminds me Thou shalt not kill These words have been quoted countless times by countless people to justify preventing death of all kinds whether it be for animals plants or humans in war and peace Now for starters let me be clear that life is to be valued In fact our current society has gone off the deep end and elevated choice over life sending millions to their death with a cry of it s our choice fresh on their lips This is horrible This needs to stop Still the quote from the KJV version of the ten commandments on the surface seems to be saying that we should never be involved in death ever Of anything However if one simply keeps reading their Bible they soon realize that the context is more accurately translated you shouldn t murder Murder is a whole different ball of wax It involves malice and forethought which means the murderer means to harm and plans it in advance The Mosaic law outlined the difference between murder and manslaughter and accidental death In fact the state was to include cities of refuge where someone could run to if the death were manslaughter or accidental and then be safe long enough to get a fair trial If they in fact were guilty of murder they were handed back to the family of the victim for punishment Interpreting the Bible isn t rocket science but there are some very good general rules to follow Here s one Always read a verse in context Read the pages before and after Figure out if the text is descriptive simply describing events or prescriptive giving instruction Simply follow this one rule and you ll avoid 99 of all controversies and bad interpretations Try it You ll like it Joell Last Sunday s Service Audio from Sunday s service Video from Sunday s service Read more ComBap Update Murder Edition Bringing People

need JavaScript enabled to view it Hello ComBappers We ve had some great discussion in our small groups around the practice of getting into trouble for doing the kind of stuff that Jesus would do When we do get hated for being Christians it should be for the same things that got Jesus hated So what did He get hated for I ve come up with three types of things that got Jesus into hot water Doing stuff on the sabbath especially healing Time and time again the religious leaders were furious with Him for breaking the sabbath at least according to their traditional understanding of it Once for letting the disciples grab some wheat from a field and rub it in their hands to get the chaff off Other times for healing people Clearly Jesus wasn t doing anything wrong and in the healing cases he was showing love and compassion Hanging out with sinners Jesus didn t care if someone had a bad reputation He cared more about being close to them and showing them what God was really like The religious leaders thought it highly inappropriate to be in the same room as those people Jesus also broke gender mores by chatting with women and racial divides by helping Samaritans and non Jews Rebuking people particularly those who thought themselves religious Jesus reserved his most scathing rebukes for religious leaders and those who had turned the practice of faith into a profit making enterprise So have you been hated for doing these things lately especially numbers 1 and 2 Maybe it s time to get in trouble Joell Last Sunday s Service Audio from Sunday s service Video from Sunday s

with a wonderful lunch that is still at 3 in the afternoon making me swoon in my chair Mmmm Good Today we talked about the passage in John 16 where Jesus shares that what he is going to be facing the crucifixion was like a mother giving birth A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world So it turns out that all the women in the group had given birth and every one of them remembered that it hurt A lot So was Jesus being a man and all wrong Then one of the gals who shall remain nameless to protect the innocent and insightful said When I look at my kids she has 3 I don t think of the pain they caused me I think of the joy I have in having them in my family We quickly made note of it Christ endured the cross because he knew the joy of bringing us into the family was worth the pain and suffering that he was going to endure because of our sin Yes it was our sin that caused his pain but it was the joy of bringing us into the family that made that pain worth every second of it Jesus only had to do it once Marilyn did it three times oops My wife did it four times My

This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it Hello ComBappers Well we had another very successful pie auction yesterday Four thousand two hundred and fifty one dollars was raised by selling the donated pies other baking cabbage rolls and meat at this event That s a lot of pie dough The highlight of the auction was undoubtedly the finale where our dear sweet Sandy R paid 100 to present Pastor Joell with a cream pie in the face Had it been someone like Bill B or Doug H it wouldn t have been nearly as big a surprise but Sandy delivered the pie to Pastor Joell with absolute enthusiasm and skill Who knew My theory is that she was exacting revenge for the time he stood her up for a coffee appointment However he was generous enough to share some of the creamy pie with her by planting a kiss on her cheek immediately following her gift to him Was that perhaps a take on the Luke 6 29 scripture I m so glad ComBappers aren t afraid to have fun in church and with one another We OUGHT to be a happy bunch We have a God who loves us and truly there are blessings all around Make it a habit to watch for and savor all the moments of pleasure around us a hearty laugh shared with a friend a favorable doctor s report a hug from a child a bouquet of lilacs a rainbow a puppy dog the taste of homemade buns or a family trip to Alabama May God bless you today with fun and joy and love and then may you go out and share that happiness with those around you Penny Last Sunday s Service Audio from Sunday s service Video from Sunday s service Read more

added to or removed from our ComBap Update mailing list contact the This email address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it Hello ComBappers Outside our church this afternoon is a murder of crows making a racket Which reminds me Thou shalt not kill These words have been quoted countless times by countless people to justify preventing death of all kinds whether it be for animals plants or humans in war and peace Now for starters let me be clear that life is to be valued In fact our current society has gone off the deep end and elevated choice over life sending millions to their death with a cry of it s our choice fresh on their lips This is horrible This needs to stop Still the quote from the KJV version of the ten commandments on the surface seems to be saying that we should never be involved in death ever Of anything However if one simply keeps reading their Bible they soon realize that the context is more accurately translated you shouldn t murder Murder is a whole different ball of wax It involves malice and forethought which means the murderer means to harm and plans it in advance The Mosaic law outlined the difference between murder and manslaughter and accidental death In fact the state was to include cities of refuge where someone could run to if the death were manslaughter or accidental and then be safe long enough to get a fair trial If they in fact were guilty of murder they were handed back to the family of the victim for punishment Interpreting the Bible isn t rocket science but there are some very good general rules to follow Here s one Always read a verse in context Read the pages before and after Figure out if the text is descriptive simply describing events or prescriptive giving instruction Simply follow this one rule and you ll avoid 99 of all controversies and bad interpretations Try it You ll like it Joell Last Sunday s Service Audio from Sunday s service Video from Sunday s service Read more ComBap

address is being protected from spambots You need JavaScript enabled to view it Hello ComBappers We ve had some great discussion in our small groups around the practice of getting into trouble for doing the kind of stuff that Jesus would do When we do get hated for being Christians it should be for the same things that got Jesus hated So what did He get hated for I ve come up with three types of things that got Jesus into hot water Doing stuff on the sabbath especially healing Time and time again the religious leaders were furious with Him for breaking the sabbath at least according to their traditional understanding of it Once for letting the disciples grab some wheat from a field and rub it in their hands to get the chaff off Other times for healing people Clearly Jesus wasn t doing anything wrong and in the healing cases he was showing love and compassion Hanging out with sinners Jesus didn t care if someone had a bad reputation He cared more about being close to them and showing them what God was really like The religious leaders thought it highly inappropriate to be in the same room as those people Jesus also broke gender mores by chatting with women and racial divides by helping Samaritans and non Jews Rebuking people particularly those who thought themselves religious Jesus reserved his most scathing rebukes for religious leaders and those who had turned the practice of faith into a profit making enterprise So have you been hated for doing these things lately especially numbers 1 and 2 Maybe it s time to get in trouble Joell Last Sunday s Service
