Going outside this morning to take Walter on his morning excursion, it was so nice to feel the cool crisp temperature signaling that Autumn is just around the corner! I love this time of the year and it also reminds me that the Fall Biblical Feasts are coming up. As we are in the Biblical month of Elul and asking the Holy One to reveal unwanted attitudes, behavior, ‘stinkin thinking’, so we are prepared to to receive more of His presence in our lives!
This Shabbat, September 14th, we will be transitioning from exploring the realms of Faith and Anointing to the REALM OF GLORY. A place where we experience the very character, nature and essence of who our God is. The realm of glory is a place where the flesh cannot bring us to! It’s only by the RUACH Ha KODESH.
WE WILL NOT HAVE ONEG FOLLOWING THE SERVICE DUE TO HAVDALAH AT THE WESTENDORFS’, SO THERE IS NO MEAL FOLLOWING THE SERVICE!
