This Week in Grace – Oct 1- 7, 2012
This Week in Grace …
The First Word
9 In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And when he came up out of the water, immediately he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. 11 And a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:9-11 ESV) What a glorious picture of the triune God and the relationship shared in self-giving love. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit give glorifying love to one another and thus God is infinitely and profoundly happy. And this fellowship of mutually self-giving love God has been enjoying for all of eternity. To think that we have been redeemed to enter into this fellowship with the Triune God is overwhelming indeed.
- C2C Cadre with Jeff Vandersteldt and Caesar Kalinowski in Edmonton on Thursday Oct. 4: This is a one day event focused on missional communities. I am going and would love to have as many join in as possible. The cost is $10 to be paid at the door. Pre-registration is required. We are planning to leave for Edmonton after the work day on Wed. Oct 3. The training is during the day on Thursday until around 3:30 pm. We would then head back to Saskatoon that afternoon, so everyone can be home for work on Friday! Thus, you would only need to take one day off of work, and it would be a great road trip, if we travelled together. If you are interested please letMurray know.
