Sunday, September 8, 10:00 am worship I have so missed Redeemer and I am glad to be back this Sunday! Sometimes you don't know what you have until it gets taken away. Worshiping with the Redeemer community is more precious, more powerful, than I realized.
You have served my family well over these hard last weeks, bringing us meals, watching our kids, sending cards and flowers; you are a gracious and compassionate people. Thank you. You have been the comfort of Jesus to us.
Dr. Julius Kim, Dean of Students and Associate Professor of Practical Theology at Westminster Seminary, will be with us this week preaching from Matthew 5. Dr. Kim is a gifted preacher and a good friend to Redeemer. You will not want to miss hearing God speak to you through the preaching of Dr. Kim.
Next week we will begin our fall preaching series, Portraits from the Prophets. It will be so good to preach again. Over the fall we will look at each book of the minor prophets in the Hebrew scriptures. These often neglected books of the bible contain stirring and important pictures of God that will deepen our love for and understanding of our Father and King.
I look forward to worshiping together this Sunday.
