    Last Sunday’s collect summed all this up so well:

    “Almighty God, you alone can bring into order the unruly wills and affections of sinners: Grant your people grace to love what you command and desire what you promise; that, among the swift and varied changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.”

    One of the books I’m reading at the moment commented on this collect saying “We learn to desire the life of covenant with God, according to which we are steward’s of God’s wealth for the sake of others rather than hoarders of our own wealth’ (DeSilva, 114). As “for the sake of others” is our tagline for outreach this year I took notice!

    Thanks David for pushing us to think, pray and change.

    Hi David-
    I think God wanted me to hear your sermon right after my last “Jeopardy!” game 🙂
    This may be a dumb question, but can non-members give to Restoration, too?
    And what’s the name of the group in Syria?
