Today, Pastor Michael Hodge continues the study of the Word of God. His sermon today talks about how we can have hope in the midst of no hope, no matter how bad our circumstances are.
We had a few audio issues with the sermon today due to it being very dry in the church (the air, not the Pastor! ;-) ). Something I (Gilbert) will need to work on. In the meantime, be patient...this sermon is very good in spite of an occasional crackling sound during the sermon.
By request, we've also put two other portions of the service online. The lighting of the Advent candle this year is being done by families, and this week, it was the Blobaum's turn. Shawn and Molly read the Scriptures today, and Shawn lit the candle.
Finally, we had special music. Roger and Leslie Seldal, accompanied by Karen Hannan on vocal and piano, sang "The Rose of Bethlehem". We hope you are blessed by it.
