Join us Saturday, December 1st, 9am-1pm @ All Angels' to prepare our hearts for Advent. Through Scripture, Eucharist and various prayer exercises we will explore some of the paradoxes of the Incarnation: how God bends down low in love for us; how God comes to us in such power and utter humility and how we are invited to live and love in light of this reality. Childcare will be available if requested ahead of time when registering.
Sign up here: (https://goo.gl/forms/UIx6iMie0jrzB3Gz1). The link can also be found on the announcements page of allangelschurch.com.

Today we started our #LordsPrayer
series at #KidsClub
. It was about God as our #PerfectPa
what we explained in a nice skit of the veggie family, a big cookie demonstrating #GodsLove
and a bible lesson of the #ProdigalSon
. We're already excited for next week when it will be all about #Praise
AS I enjoy my coffee at the LODGE, and read so many wonderful BIRTHDAY WISHES, I don’t know whether feeling GRATEFUL is enough to describe how I am feeling........ Maybe humbled, loved, blessed, honoured, lucky, teary, undeserving, happy, speechless and the list goes on! I wish I could keep the way I am feeling FOREVER!
All I can say is a HUGE THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for taking the time, to all of you.....my friends, my teammates, my family❤️👏☺️ #grateful #blessed #honoured #luck #feelingthelove #humbled #speechless #friends #teammates #mynewfamily #thankyou #godslove
“Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” #Psalms
We want you to take 30 seconds today to pray for your churches worship team. They sacrifice weekly to glorify God and they seek do it to the best of their abilities because they want to give nothing less to God.
If you are apart of Reveal we also ask that you pray for our very first worship night that will be happening Sunday night at 6pm in Waukee, IA.
Join us as we continue to explore willpower and our need to recognize God's will in our lives through the Holy Spirit. This weekend we discuss laziness. Most people would never call themselves “lazy.” But we are lazier than we think. We simply call our laziness “distraction.” The command against laziness is a call to focus our efforts on what truly matters.
Experience our worship services:
Sunday 5pm (Vespers)
Sunday/Monday 8pm (online)

As we are preparing what we pray for, we are reminded of Joshua 1:9 “ the Lord is with you wherever you go”
Come join and see Jesus changing people.
When your day feels heavy, when the kids have been whining and crying all day.
When work had been stressful, when someone was rude to you.
When the house is messy but the baby needs you, when your kids tell you they miss you and want to stay with you all the time after picking them up from day care. When you get into a fight with your spouse. When you want the day to be over. ☆Go to Jesus! ☆
Throw it all on Him! If he can hold the world, he can hold your problems. Giving Him all your worries and burdens WILL give you rest.
When God’s love is evident in our lives, it shows up in how we treat others. Who are you sharing God’s love with? Let your faith in God motivate you to love His people today.

“Comfort In The Darkest Hour” is now available on monetmadness.com
Sometimes we can’t run from the hurtful truths of our reality. Sometimes it’s things we can’t control. Sometimes we try so hard to be something different and in failure it brings waves of destruction. In those moments of despair, pray for comfort and understanding. Run to God because He will never forsake you.
In the words of @andymineo

A bit more of a personal blog post today - all about what I’m up to at the moment, and where the I Am Project is going. Have a look - link in the bio! ⬆️⬆️
~ Swallowing Hard ~
I have an adorable mommy --- 89 years old, barely 5’ tall and looks like she just arrived from the old country. Never was there a bigger mother's heart. She has a joyful spirit and is known to laugh herself to tears.
At times the humor she adds to life is entirely unintentional: like unwittingly serving cider that bites you back. And one of our family favorites... homemade eggnog with lumps. Yeah. Many a Thanksgiving found us smiling through our own tears, as we swallowed hard to avoid hurting her precious feelings.
Sometimes it’s words that we find hard to swallow. Some of the most difficult came from Jesus’ mouth.
🍃Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? “... Jesus replied, “but seventy times seven”. Matt 18:21-22
🍃"But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also". Matt 5:39
🍃"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God". Matt 5:9
🍃"...Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be children of your Father in heaven". Matt 5:44
Our faith culture has become comfortable using wordly logic and persuasive rhetoric to side-step the Law of Love.
We say Love has 'limits'. We lay boundaries and erect walls against those who have offended us and call it 'wisdom'. We justify NOT Loving on the basis of the unworthiness of the recipient.
I’m no theologian, but it seems to me that Jesus has called us to something different.
🍃Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments. 1 John 2:3
Did He know what we would face? The people we would deal with? How they would treat us?
Absolutely. Jesus knew Love would require us to swallow hard--- even cost us.
As Thanksgiving approaches, let us consider: lofty prayers and warm sentiment mean little to Jesus who said our Love for Him is shown by obedience to His commands.
🍃Beloved if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 1 John 4:11
Jesus gave His life for the unworthy. He poured out His perfect Love on the unlovable. True gratitude for our redemption translates into LOVE: crazy, reckless, unjustifiable love — LOVE that reflects the heart of Jesus. 💕🍃
