Worship Service Canceled

Saturday after Epiphany 3
January 30, 2010

The Lord be with you

Due to the snow and ice, we have canceled tomorrow's worship service at Lamb of God (LCMS), Spartanburg. When I grew up in San Diego, CA, the idea that a worship service might be canceled due to weather never even crossed my mind. The three years I spent in Indiana sure opened my eyes, in that department. Now I’m sitting here with no sermon or Bible study to go over, and wondering what we can take away from this. One idea is that we should never take having a chance to worship together for granted. Having a chance to gather with other believers and sing the hymns of the Church and worship with the words that have been handed down to us is a precious gift. It can not be duplicated with a radio or television program. Sure a good sermon on the radio or a televised worship service is better than just watching the “talking heads” on Sunday morning, but they can’t replace the fellowship that is present only when we gather in one place. So let us not take for granted this precious gift from our loving God.

Blessings in Christ,
Pastor John Rickert
