Prelude I Love the Lord James Southbridge
Call to Worship Psalm 1:1-3 1 Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; 2 but their delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law they meditate day and night. 3 They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper. Let us worship God.

STAFF CORNER with Linda Walters An Unexpected Visitor They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the Lord. . . . they did not destroy the peoples as the Lord had commanded them, but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs. . . . they defiled themselves by what they did . . . Therefore, the Lord was angry with his people and handed them over to the nations. Many times he delivered them but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin. (Various verses from Psalm 106)
This week we had an unexpected visitor in the office who had been temporarily aban-doned by her family for her rebellious attitude. She had nowhere to go and no one to come for her. She was frightened. She was shy. She was alone. So she walked to our church for help. We managed to feed her a meal, give her a book and encourage her to return home and follow the rules. We also contacted some agencies to try to get her help. Eventually her mother was contacted and the way was paved for her to receive some counseling. We then took her home. While she was here, we treated with love and encouragement. Several times she men-tioned how much she liked our church and wanted to come here. She longed for love and acceptance and it was evident that she felt some peace here. We realize this was but a moment in her life and that she needs long term help, but in hindsight we were blessed to witness the power of His transforming love. It is powerful.
Pray for her. He knows her name and He used Covenant to minister to her in her time of need.
Psalm 106:44-45 But He took note of their distress when He heard their cry and for their sake He remembered His covenant and out of His great love he relented.
