* Speaking of Proverbs 2:1-6, Jeff will never forget hearing Haddon Robinson preaching this very passage, his 1st Denver Seminary Chapel; Jeff still has Haddon’s word’s ringing in his ears and heart– “God must become your magnificent obsession.”   (again, go meet HIM in Proverbs 2:1-6)   You’ll wanna read about Haddon linked right below:

* What a beautiful picture of LCFers living Colossians 4:2 this past Sunday morn/7.23. . .at about 10:12 a.m. they departed the upstairs Hall, walking  out to the corners of the Church property, praying “Your Kingdom come” (Luke 11:1-4) for those right around the Church property, which HE has commanded we care about. How thrilling it was to have Kolegar praying with us. . .he lives in this neighborhood!

* And this coming Sunday/7.30 LCFers living Colossians 4:2/“devoted to prayer” will depart the upstairs Hall at about 10:12 a.m., moving into the various Church rooms and praying “Your will be done.”

Nat’l Home actually provided excellent work on the Church-owned home in 2004 and 2007; the company’s owner loves Jesus, and is serving also in Uganda, assisting the formation of Christ-centered, self-sustaining companies.   It was very neat during the Board meeting to witness Steve talking with Kolegar.
