We are ready for these cooler nights, glad to see the fields coming in, basking in the last warm days and brilliant colors before they start to fade into the grey months ahead. It has been a long, hot summer, and now we can focus our minds again and get back to work.
With the students returning to school, our community lunch crowd has a quieter feel. Attic Window customers are finding back-to-school clothes and trading out their flip-flops for sneakers, and the men in the New Life Center are ready for the summer yard sale remnants.
In the midst of all this activity, through chapel services, devotions, conversations between clients and with employees, God speaks His love and power.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven
and do not return there but water the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return to me empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
Pray with us for the harvest that continues throughout the year as God works His Word and Spirit in our hearts.
