Every Thursday for the past several weeks, my son Freddy has been a part of a small class called "Awesome Autumn" at his school. During their time together, they celebrate all that is great about autumn, and I have to tell you it is getting to be a bit contagious. Waking up today, it felt like autumn was upon us and I love it! I hope you will have a chance to get out and enjoy some of this cooler weather.
In worship this weekend I'll preach live on the 7th Commandment, "Do not commit adultery." Instead of focusing purely on adultery and how it is that we can avoid it, I'll spend a lot of time diving into what it means to be faithful in marriage. My hope is that this weekend will serve as a practical look at the covenant of Christian marriage and how God longs for us to commit to a love that lasts a lifetime. I hope you'll make plans to join us in worship and invite your married friends to join you as well. This will be a great message for anybody looking to enrich their marriage!
