Here we are in the “dog days of summer” and I am still asking “what in the world does that mean?” Well, I just returned from walking my dogs and they said to me
With their eyes “it’s too hot to walk!” I guess it means that the dogs get to stay in the cool house during these days!
Anyway, we are getting ready to enter the most important days on the Biblical Kingdom Calendar with the Hebrew month of Elul beginning in a few days, followed by the Fall festivals as we set our gaze to the triumphant return of our Lord!
This Shabbat, August 11th@10:30am I will be starting a new series of teachings on the subject of ALIGNMENT. What does it mean and how do we align our spirit, soul, and body with this paradigm and how does it bring us into the “John 17 Echad" (unity) that we are called to live out. I am really excited about this and know that Or Chaim Congregation will be mightily blessed by this alignment we will be learning to walk in!
WE WILL HAVE A POTLUCK LUNCH FOLLOWING THE SERVICE SO BRING A DISH TO SHARE, AND ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP!
Remember, those that want to read through and discuss the Torah portion of the week, will be meeting downstairs in the fellowship room starting at 9am. Also, several folks have shown an interest in meeting before the service for prayer. Devorah Schott will be leading a time of prayer in one of the children’s classrooms starting at 8:30am. This will be a great opportunity to invite the Ruach into every aspect of our services, and see our faithful Father meet so many needs as we also pray for this city, nation and Israel!
This Wednesday night August 15th from 6:15 to 9:00pm we will have a meet and greet with Gary and Kathleen Hixson and family at Patricia DeLeon’s house, 10578 Ouray Street, Commerce City, 80022 followed by a study on FEAR. Snacks will be provided. Gary and family are emissaries to Spain and have a ministry in Deliverance and Counseling. Please come and show support for this precious family.
We look forward to seeing you this Shabbat!
Blessings and Shabbat Shalom!
