Hello! Today the Franklin’s hosted church. Simeon read the kids story and Justin preached the sermon.
Joseph, Mary, and Jesus are back on the road to Nazareth, united once again! The next 18 years of Jesus’ life are wrote out in 1 verse — 28 words!
After this, John the Baptist comes and preaches and baptizes people. Jesus knows it is His time!
Justin recently listened to a biography on St. Francis of Assisi. (lots of plane time flying to France! 😉 )
We read some from Job 6 and then learned about St. Francis of Assisi…
- Francis was not born a saint, but a warrior!
- At one time, he fell sick before a battle and then received a vision from God to rebuild the church.
- He went to court with his father and was named a ‘fool’
- But appeared had a huge impact with his simple followers on Popes and rulers
Justin read some more about St. Francis and the had some Psalm reading and also read aloud Hebrews 12:28
You must remember that God is the reason for everything. He is the reason you are alive and living in this world!
