"The prophecies from the Old Testament prophets during the Exile promise huge things once the Exile is over – they are as full of hope as you can find in the Scriptures. But life doesn’t pan out like this in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah – the post-Exile reality doesn’t meet the prophetic hype. Yes, the Jews are permitted to return to Jerusalem, to rebuild Jerusalem, and to pick back up their lives. In that sense, they’ve been saved by God’s grace. But it feels much more like salvation in a minor key. ⠀
"This is a not-uncommon experience of faith. “Everything sounds so much better in the Bible”. “If only I had been there and seen Jesus for myself.” “How come we don’t see miracles anymore?” It’s one reason we love Liberty's Youth Sunday so much, listening to these teenagers talk about a real faith, a real experience of a real God -- “I wish I had that.” Is our experience of salvation also in a minor key?" ⠀
Join us for worship this Sunday, February 25, to learn more as we continue our journey through the Bible. Services at 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. ⠀
Message: "Long Story Short: 19. Salvation in a Minor Key" (Zechariah 8) Speaker: Pastor John Hart⠀
🎚️🤝 Come as you are, as you were,
As I want you to be... As a friend, as a friend, as a known enemy.
Take your time, hurry up, choice is yours, don't be late.
Take a rest, as a friend, as an old memory, yeah. 🎸🎼
Just pausing for a moment to pinch myself that I get to do what I do. Celebrating humanity, introducing them to JESUS, and being part of HIS incredible story!! I mean, seriously! Flaws and all, He looks past the ‘lack’ and looks at the potential.
I’m so excited that we are adding a service to make room for more to celebrate, love and honour HIM - with each other.
9, 11 + 5.
Come join us at our Founding Week events, where we will be celebrating 10 years of upholding Scholarship, Leadership, Unity, Multiculturalism and Sisterhood, starting on Monday, February 26th! #ComeAsYouAre
Just as we were leaving for La Union I received my #LiteRide pair from @crocsph. It was perfect as I was looking for something neutral, a scale up the normal flipflops but also nothing too heavy. So these are perfect as they are light and soft and even stylish! (Slide to the left for a close up of the material!) Summer’s almost here, feel it Pinas??? I am slowly bringing out my season’s essentials. From outfit to skincare. How about you?
Uhm … 🌺Spring is almost here and I can hardly contain my excitement. I have a massive gift for THREE people out there who are ready to find freedom. It will be work, but won’t require you to sacrifice ANY time with your family and if you do it right you have the money 💴 and the ability to make the income of a brain surgeon without ever having to leave your couch. If your family NEEDS an answer to financial freedom – this is it!! I’m going to help you get there! This is different from EVERYTHIGN else you may have tried – I can promise you that. It’s full of support, and bound with integrity. So stop living paycheck to paycheck and start living and being able to bless those around you! DM me by midnight tonight!!
@larkfarlee and I are looking for individuals who are interested in being part of our photographic project, “Come As You Are”, focusing on natural, unfiltered, authentic beauty. It’s our intention that this project will combine portraits with personal statements on what it means to be beautiful in a culture driven by consumer products designed to make us beautiful by disguising our inherent beauty. Anyone of any age is welcome to become involved. Please send a message to @larkfarlee and me, @anicca_photo, for more information if you’d like to photographed for this project.
Come as you are,
as you were
As I want you to be
As a friend, as a friend
As a known enemy
Take your time, hurry up
The choice is yours, don’t be late
Take a rest as a friend, as an old memoria
