Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. (Matthew 3:13)
Humble opologies for neglecting you, our faithful blog readers... if you are reading this, it is testimony that you have faith that someday we are going to update it, and, lo, and behold (don't you love that word!?), we have!
The year is 'wearing away', and before we know it, we will be decorating trees (if you install the "pagan bush" as a friend once called it) and waiting in long lines to purchase gifts for our loved ones. When you find yourself in such a position, remember this: "Jesus is the Reason for the Season!".
Until then, allow us to update you on the Christianity Explored Course and recent ministry.
On Wednesday we will hold our tenth and final session of CE. About 20 or so of us (the children have thier own program in the "upper room") will sit down to enjoy another meal and then complete our study of Christianity from Mark's gospel. Some of the paricipants are counting the cost of becoming followers of Jesus Christ.
On Sunday there will be a baptism at Northside. One of the young people has decided to follow Christ in the waters of baptism. "Trust and obey, for there's no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey."
Please pray for these people and for the City of Barrie...
