Dear West View
Welcome to worship! If you are joining us for the first time today, please know that you are amongst friends and you are welcomed in this community of believers.
Today we are in between our last sermon series “The Cycle of Grace” and our next series starting next Sunday “Revival: Faith as Wesley lived it”. There is so much in our world (especially in this country) as well as in our lives that give us reason not to experience the Joy of life. Many of us are just making it in life and we can’t help but pay attention to all the wrong and the negative that is happening around us. All this negativity around us robs us of our freedom to experience in this life. This week I want to suggest that in most instances we have the option of choosing Joy over despair and disappointment. Our topic for today is “Choosing Joy”.
Tomorrow is back to school for most of our youth and children and we wish them well as they start a new schooling term. May this be a term where they and their teachers find Joy in the schooling environment.
Your Servant for Christ’s Sake
